Carlos Correa will eventually wear the Minnesota Twins uniform again.
‘MLB.com’ said on the 11th (Korean time), “Corea signs a six-year, $200 million contract with Minnesota. The contract has an additional option for four years and $70 million. In addition, it included the right to refuse trades with former clubs.”
If the contract is finalized, it will set the record for the longest tenure and highest value in Minnesota franchise history.
Correa, who became a free agent after last season, signed a 13-year, $350 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. It was a contract that surprised everyone, and it seemed like he was wearing an orange uniform. However, the contract was canceled right before the press conference due to problems in the medical test.
Correa’s agent, Scott Boras, acted quickly and signed a 12-year, $315 million contract with the New York Mets. However, even this caused a problem in the medical test, and time passed.
Eventually, Correa estranged himself from the Mets and signed with Minnesota. No medical tests have been done yet. Changes may occur in the test machine that has been holding back in the meantime.
However, it is very likely that this contract will be agreed upon. Because Minnesota already had him and would be aware of the problem.
This contract is evaluated as a win-win for each other. Correa failed to sign a $300 million contract, but secured a large guarantee, and local media explained that this was because Minnesota brought back existing players at a relatively low price.
