RotoWire News: Correa (illness) will play shortstop and bat in the cleanup spot in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. (3/26/2017)

Profile: On the surface, it looks like Correa has been pretty much the same guy in his first two seasons. Decent power, decent speed, and decent contact ability with good patience and scratch defense at shortstop: put that all together and you've got an amazing young player you can build your team around in real life, but a disappointment for a first-round pick. It's his youth that gives us our first clue that more might be coming from the Astro. At 22, Correa has three or four more years before he peaks, power-wise. If you look under the hood at his rolling exit velocity numbers from last year, another clue pops up: Correa played through two significant injuries last season that you can spot in his batted-ball speed. While he was playing through those problems, his power and speed took a big hit. But Correa was able to help the team, so he stuck it out. Maybe it'll always be this way, at least until he's so old that the injuries force him to take a seat. Or maybe Correa will be healthy for more of 2017, add some natural muscle growth, and pair it with his knowledge of what pitchers are trying to do to him and continue to tighten his swing zone... this is how you dream your way to a .290/.375/.500 season with 25-plus homers and 15-plus stolen bases. Now you're talking first round talent. If you don't have to pay first-round prices, jump at the opportunity to roster a shortstop with a high floor and a huge ceiling. (Eno Sarris)

The Quick Opinion: If Correa once again provides 20ish homers and 10ish steals with a .275ish batting average, he'll be a bad repeat pick at first-round prices. Even if you believe he can improve on his baseline and his projections -- and I do -- you should pay for late second- or third-round prices so that you benefit from the surplus.
