Showing the poise that has earned him plenty of praise since he was taken first overall in the 2012 draft, Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa seemed more buoyed then dejected after he was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday morning.

“It was great,” the 19-year-old from Puerto Rico said. “It was a great experience. I came out here with the big league guys. I learned a lot. It was something great for me, for my career.”

Correa was also happy to report that the X-Rays on his left hand were negative a day after he was drilled in the hand by a pitch against the Nationals.

“No fracture at all, so it’s good,” he said. “It’s a little bit sore, but it’ll be fine by tomorrow.”

The Astros optioned first baseman Jon Singleton and reassigned top outfield prospect George Springer, 2013 first round pick Mark Appel, outfielder Delino DeShields and top pitching prospect Mike Foltynewicz.

Correa is considered the Astros’ top overall prospect. He hit .214 (6-for-28) with two home runs and three RBIs over 15 games. He also made several sensational defensive plays.
