Houston Astros

The Houston Astros have an impressive young core. However, with that core about to enter their arbitration years, there will be a player or two that the Astros need to move on from.

Carlos Correa is the player that is most frequently referenced in that conversation. The former first overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, there is no questioning Correa’s ability. However, he has not been able to remain healthy over most of his career, appearing in over 110 games just once since breaking into the majors.

When he is on the diamond, Correa is a solid player. He produced a .279/.358/.568 batting line, hitting 21 homers and 16 doubles in 321 plate appearances. Correa saved four runs defensively, and led the AL with 14 runs saved in 2018. He could be exactly what the Reds need at short.

Even with his injury woes and the Astros upcoming financial crunch, Senzel likely would not be enough. Senzel would also have the same question about playing time, unless the Astros were to somehow part ways with Josh Reddick and move George Springer to right. However, given Correa’s injury history, it may be worth the Reds time to see if he can be a possible buy low candidate.

The Cincinnati Reds need a shortstop. Nick Senzel may be a chip that could get them what they need.
