When will Correa be up with the Astros?

Keith Law and the Baseball Tonight crew look at what Carlos Correa can bring to the Astros and when he'll get the call to join the major league club.

It's that time again … time to check in on the top MLB prospects.

We've seen a number of promotions from my top 50 prospects list on March 31 to the majors, including Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, Noah Syndergaard and Joc Pederson, resulting in a number of open spots for this top 25 update.

Any player currently in the majors is ineligible for this list, as are any players in the minors who've exhausted their rookie status (such as Javier Baez). As with all of my prospect rankings, I consider scouting reports (my own as well as those of scouts and executives) along with performance, and favor players with higher upsides.

Houston Astros
Current level: Triple-A (Fresno)

Correa won't turn 21 until late September -- by which point he'll be the Astros' starting shortstop -- and already has dominated every minor league level he has played in, including Double-A to start this year, and should remain at shortstop at least for the start of his major league career.
