Correa to Quad Cities?

Jose de Jesus Ortiz tweeted a note from Luhnow this morning indicating that Carlos Correa may start the 2013 season in Quad Cities - which wouldn't be all that unusual - but he has made a case to start in Lancaster.


"He’s certainly making a case for maybe a level higher, but we’re going to take the conservative approach with him."

Nolan Fontana - the Astros' 2nd Round pick in 2012 - will likely be SS1 for Lancaster in 2013. 2009 1st Round pick Jio Mier - who missed significant time in 2012 due to a hamstring injury - probably gets to start the season at Corpus in his 4th full season in the organization.
