At 21 years old, Carlos Correa has already accomplished more than most other professional baseball players. In 2015, he won an American League Rookie of the Year award, as well as appearing in the postseason. It’s Saturday’s 7-2 win against the Angels, Correa connected for his 15th home runs of the season and his 36th as a major leaguer, which moved him atop the Astros list.
To this point, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to say that that baseball world is familiar with Houston Astros starting pitcher Lance McCullers. Some likely took note of the cleats he wore on his Major League debut, while others might’ve become familiar with him for the stuff he has done to opposing batters since then. Either way, the top prospect broke into the bigs for the first time last season to give the Astros 125.2 innings of solid production. Then, like all years must, 2015 gave way to 2016. 2016 has offered a bit more of a quirky look for McCullers, to say the least. In fact, through 62.1 innings this season McCullers has posted quite the odd season, and it all starts with his FIP.
