Astros at Diamondbacks: 5 Players to Watch

3-Carlos Correa

He has the makings of being one of the most special players in the game. Though only called up on June 8th, Correa has had a year that would make a ten-year veteran proud, never mind a 20-year old rookie. He has 21 home runs in only 375 at-bats and has an on-base plus slugging (OPS) of .847. Correa is the front-runner to win the Rookie of the Year with some competition from fellow shortstop Francisco Lindor of Cleveland. Correa was the #1 overall pick of the 2012 Draft; the D-backs can only dream that their own #1 overall shortstop pick, Dansby Swanson can make an impact like that.
