Youngsters Making An Impact In 2016; American League West

Correa, CarlosWith spring training around the corner, we’re taking a look at a couple of young players for each team that I think will have a larger impact in 2016. We started with the American League East on Tuesday, moved to the AL Central yesterday and will continue to move through division by division. Today we look at AL West…

Houston Astros

Carlos Correa, SS – What Correa was able to accomplish as a 20-year old in 99 games last season was simply amazing. The Rookie of the Year hit .279 with 22 doubles, 22 home runs, 68 RBI, 14 steals, and a .857 OPS in that time frame. It will be interesting to see how the league adjusts to Correa (78 k’s in 432 PA) and vice versa, how Correa adjusts to the league. My monies on a full season of Correa with a prediction of Carlos cracking the top 10 for MVP voting in 2016.

About Shaneo42

I am an amateur blogger but avid Detroit Tigers fan which started out around the age of 7 during the 1984 Tiger season. That year catapulted me to love the game and want to write about it as much as possible. I played some high school ball, rode some pine in college and co-created and wrote Pepper Baseball Blog for eight years. It's time for a fresh start for myself, the blog, and our readers hopefully as I write about the Tigers, Baseball, and my hobby Baseball cards. I hope you enjoy!
