MLB Draft 2012: Minnesota Twins Worked Out Carlos Correa

The Minnesota Twins worked out short stop Carlos Correa, according to the Twins' MLB.com page. Correa, who has committed to the University of Miami, is considered a surefire Top 10 pick in this summer's draft.

According to Sports Illustrated:

Correa dazzled scouts at summer and fall showcases in 2011. He is a slick defender with smooth fielding actions and a powerful arm. He shows signs of becoming a unique hitter. During an October showcase, Correa, using a wood bat, drilled an opposite field home run directly down the right field line which, to quote a long ago Joe Garagiola description, "didn't get up, didn't get down...it just got out."

Correa, 6-4 and 190 pounds, could become the highest-drafted Puerto Rican high school player, according to MLB.com.

The "First-Year Player Draft" will take place June 4-6. The Twins draft No. 2 overall.
