Astros Prospect Stock Report 2021: Volume 4

Just like the stock market, prospects’ stock will go up and down throughout the season. Here is the Astros Prospect Stock Report: Volume 4.

Disclaimer – Being on the stock down part of this list does not necessarily mean the player is a bad prospect. More just noting the rough patch they are experiencing this season.

Hitter – J.C. Correa

Despite being Carlos Correa‘s younger brother, J.C. is making a name for himself and showing he is a legit prospect in his own right. The 22 year old started the season in Low-A and slashed .306/.392/.477 with 19 2B, 5 HR and 28 BB/30 K in 56 games. He just got promoted to High-A where he .333 in five games. He stock is definitely on the rise.

2021 Stats: 61 G, .308 BA/.388 OBP/.471 SLG, 20 2B, 2 3B, 5 HR, 32 RBI, 7 SB, 136 wRC+

Pitcher – Hunter Brown

Brown has been a high upside guy since he was drafted but he is putting it together now. On the season he has a 4.20 ERA but he has just a 2.19 ERA over his last 6 outings. Overall he has 76 K in just 49.1 innings as he shows off his high 90s fastball and above average curveball and slider. Brown has established himself as the top pitching prospect in the system.

2021 Stats: 13 G, 4.20 ERA/3.86 FIP, 49.1 IP, 45 H, 23 ER, 29 BB, 76 K, 13.9 K/9


⇓ Stock Down⇓

Hitter – C.J. Stubbs

Stubbs was 10th round pick in 2019 and hit well following the draft. Unfortunately he has struggled this season. On the season he has just a .626 OPS with 74 K in 52 games. He is only 24 years old, and spent some time in AA too, but he has yet to find his groove in 2021.

2021 Stats: 52 G, .198 BA/.292 OBP/.321 SLG, 7 2B, 2 3B, 4 HR, 15 RBI, 71 wRC+

Pitcher – Francis Martes

At one point, Martes was one of the best pitching prospects in baseball. After multiple suspensions he is back in AAA this year at 25 years old and things aren’t going well. He owns a 13.11 ERA with 20 BB in 11.2 innings. He is still throwing mid 90s, but his command is not there right now.

2021 Stats: 10 G, 13.11 ERA, 11.2 IP, 10 H, 17 ER, 20 BB, 13 K
