There aren’t many details available yet, but this sounds like it could be serious. Here’s what Jason Schwartz, a broadcaster for the High-A Lancaster JetHawks, was tweeting Saturday night ...

Correa was just carted from dugout to back of LF fence. Had towel draped over head with head in hands. Very upset. #JetHawks #Astros

Correa was being aggressive on hit to LF corner. Made it to 3rd safely but appeared to over slide over the bag. Was in immediate pain.

Correa will undergo a range of tests Sunday before the Astros reveal a diagnosis. The 19-year-old shortstop from Puerto Rico has hit .325/.416/.510 with six homers and 20 stolen bases through 62 games this season in the California League. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft and Baseball America ranked him No. 7 on their 2014 ranking of the Top 100 prospects. Baseball Prospectus had him at No. 5.
