MLB: Astros super prospects who would be Carlos Correa’s replacement in the SS

Houston Astros is very close to seeing one of his emblems play for another team as everything indicates that Carlos Correa will not re-sign with Texans for MLB 2022. This leaves a vacancy in the short stops that it should try to cover with a new acquisition in the market. But, that is not necessarily the only way, since Astros have two super prospects in their branches who could be the ideal replacement for Correa at the short stop.

Carlos Correa’s chapter in the Houston Astros would have already come to an end having become a free agent at the end of the 2021 campaign, leaving a hole in the team’s shortstop.

However, the Puerto Rican’s replacement could already be within the Texan organization, since they have Jeremy Peña and Pedro León, two super short-stop prospects, who have shown skills to fill the vacancy.

Jeremy Peña is 24 years old and was drafted from the University of Maine in the third round of the 2018 Draft. He has a strong arm and delicate hands that allow him to make correct shots in shorts.

Pedro León, for his part, 23 years old, was signed as a free agent from Cuba and has great speed to run the infield, as well as the ability to be an elite defensive player.

So the Houston Astros wouldn’t have to look far or buy high this offseason to replace Carlos Correa for his near-imminent departure heading into the 2022 MLB Season.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
