It’s only a matter of time before uber prospect Carlos Correa is playing shortstop for the Astros. For now, though, he’s playing for the Fresno Grizzlies. And last night he hit a monster home run against the Memphis Redbirds that went completely out of Chukchansi Park. Note: I had no idea what the name of Fresno’s Park was until I googled it three minutes ago.
Anyway, here’s the blast:

A few more feet and he woulda hit it right into the Fresno Discount Swap Mall, which is another block beyond that warehouse there. See, when you Google things about Fresno, a place you’ve never been, you learn things! Note: if he hit one about 600 feet to dead center he could hit the Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company! Maps are great!
The important part of all of this, however, is that Correa has played 14 Triple-A games and has three home runs and a batting line of .283/.353/.500. At the age of 20.
Carlos is comin’, y’all.
