Astros Hinch compares prospect Correa to A-Rod

Astros' manager is former roommate of Yankees' slugger

By Brian McTaggart / MLB.com | @brianmctaggart |

TAMPA, Fla. -- Astros manager A.J. Hinch was a roommate of Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez when they were both 16 years old and playing for Team USA in Mexico, and the skipper said a young Rodriguez has some similarities to Houston's top prospect, Carlos Correa.

Correa, a shortstop who was the No. 1 pick in the 2012 Draft, has been compared to Rodriguez since he was drafted because of their body types. Those comparisons figure to multiply when Correa reaches the Majors and begins to have some success.

"Similar body styles in terms of the sort of long limbs, and when A-Rod broke in, you know he had a lot of physical similarities to Correa," Hinch said. "Really, really strong arm, really gifted at sort of positioning his body and handling all the different throws. They're a little different hitters in watching them. But when you start getting mentioned about [Derek] Jeter's body style, [Troy] Tulowitzki's body style, A-Rod's body style, that's some heavy lifting there."
