In this match-up
2 - Carlos Correa
The first overall selection of 2012's Rule 4 draft has already established himself as one of the best prospects in baseball after an impressive showing in full season ball despite being just 18 years old. Though he has no chance to break camp with the big boys, he should see plenty of time with the Major League club in Spring Training, as the Astros have him on the well-deserved fast track. Correa will look to build off 2013's performance by continuing to polish every area of his game and convert his raw power into game power in Lancaster, and likely Corpus Christi at some point. -Ashitaka
15 - MP Cokinos
Your world was invaded by a daily dose of "Coke" last season and his stock sky rocketed in some fans eyes. But, will he be able to repeat a .313/.395/.475 batting line outside of Lancaster? Will his lack of home run power limit his ceiling as a defensively limited hitter? Or will he find a home in left field and establish himself as a high OBP outfielder? -Brooks
