Astros shortstop Carlos Correa steals Chris Iannetta's soul

Oh Chris, did you think you had a few RBIs in the bag?

Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa is a special talent. Correa has all five tools at arguably the most important position on the baseball field. He showed off his fielding tool on Friday against the Seattle Mariners.

In the seventh inning, reliever Pat Neshek faced catcher Chris Iannetta with the bases loaded and one out. Iannetta ripped 1-0 sinker toward shortstop -- the ball appeared destined to at least score one run for Seattle.

Correa, not even having time to do more than a lunge, fully extended his body to reach out and snare the ball. The Astro shortstop went all out for the ball and appeared to knock the wind out of his chest in the process.

The Mariners were able to get on the board with the next batter. Ketel Marte tripled home three runs for Seattle, but Correa's stop was still a web gem.
