Carlos Correa is MLB's #3 SS prospect

Via, we find that Carlos Correa is the #3 shortstop prospect in baseball, behind Xander Bogaerts and Javier Baez.

Though Correa is still physically maturing he already has above-average power. He has a balanced swing and a good approach at the plate. He is an average runner. Correa has a strong arm, soft hands and good defensive instincts, all of which could help him stay at shortstop. Some scouts feel he will outgrow the position, but, so far, he has shown he can handle shortstop.
