    Buster Olney referenced this... pretty impressive defensive play.

    To catch it was impressive indeed, but to come up throwing showed he has his head in the game.

    He's a true SS, part of his immense raw ability.

    He may end up changing positions because of some other factors, but not because he isn't good enough.

    Right now we have 3 SS prospects ahead of him timeline wise(Jonathan Villar,Nolan Fontana, and Jiovanni Mier) that IMO can still be good big leaguers.

    Correa is on a completely different level from these 3, but he is still a long way from the bigs, maybe one of these 3 establishes themselves before he gets here and we move him to 2nd or 3rd base. He also may add some weight to become more of a power hitter.

    But there is no doubt he can play SS in the Majors. But he has the skill set to also be an elite 3B if we go that direction.

    And threw it on the money from shallow LF. Not exactly easy coming up of the ground like that. Really showed off the arm strength.

    what a beastly throw on the heels of any diving play that's taking you away from the diamond

    Nice catch!

    At least he won't get nervous playing in front of the hundreds at MMP.
