Correa the Prodigy

Age_20_Hitters_Carlos_CorreaData via the Baseball-Reference Play Index

Houston shortstop Carlos Correa is having a historic season for his age. Since being called up to the majors at the end of June, the 20-year-old has hit for an OPS+ of 144, which would be 10th best all-time for someone his age (min. 400 plate appearances; Correa is on pace for 425-450). The only players above Correa’s pace are inner-circle Hall of Famers — Cobb, Ott, Kaline, Mantle, Williams, Hornsby, Foxx — and two others who may join them in Trout and Rodriguez.
