Nobody expected Correa’s injury to have long-term ramifications, so he was back on the fast track to the major leagues at the beginning of 2015.

Prior to the start of the season, he was sent to the Corpus Christi Hooks of the AA Texas League, where he began the year ranked third or fourth by every major prospect rating organization.

To gain promotion to Fresno Grizzlies in mid-May, he smashed .385 with seven home runs and 32 RBI in 29 games on the minor league circuit. After 23 games, the Astros called him up on June 8th, when they were leading the AL West.

He had a .266 batting average. This minor leaguer had a remarkable offensive season, hitting.313 with a.431 average (21 doubles, 10 homers, 43 runs, 43 RBI) while also stealing 18 bases out of 19 attempts.

A 3-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox on June 8 saw Carlos make his Astros debut at shortstop, earning the only hit against Chris Sale and driving in the lone run for his side.

At the time, he was the league’s youngest player. A two-run ninth-inning home run off Zach Duke in the Red Sox’s 4-2 loss on June 9th marked the first of many milestones for him in his second game.

In his debut game at Minute Maid Park, he also hit a three-run home run off Seattle Mariners pitcher Joe Beimel, helping the Astros to a 10-0 victory.

Against the Colorado Rockies on June 18th, he stole three bases, becoming the second-youngest player in MLB history to accomplish the feat.
