Carlos Correa News
Shortstop Carlos Correa has passed his physical with the Minnesota Twins, and the team is expected to officially announce their six-year, $200 million deal with the 28-year-old on Wednesday. Correa's physical was a big deal after both the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets backed out of big deals with him due to concerns over a surgery that he had on a fractured right fibula back in 2014 when he was in the minors. The Twins signed Correa to a one-year, $35.1 million deal in 2022, so they were likely more comfortable with his medical records. If Correa remains healthy well into his new deal, he could stick with the Twins for up to 10 seasons due to vesting options that could net him an additional $70 million.
The Minnesota Twins and free-agent shortstop Carlos Correa are finalizing a six-year, $200 million deal on Tuesday, according to sources. The deal has a vesting option that can max out at $270 million and is pending a physical. This will be the third deal that Correa has agreed to this offseason, previously coming to terms with the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets before both teams backed out due to concerns about an ankle injury that Correa sustained in the minor leagues. However, the Twins are more familiar with the 28-year-old after he played for them in 2022. In the end, the Twins may have a bargain on their hands if Correa's body holds up beyond the next six seasons. Correa hit a strong .291/.366/.467 with 22 home runs last season in Minnesota. His likely return will afford Royce Lewis (knee) more time to heal from a torn ACL, and he'll eventually return to the outfield when he's healthy.
The Athletic's Dan Hayes and Ken Rosenthal reported Monday that contract talks between the Minnesota Twins and free-agent shortstop Carlos Correa have begun to accelerate. 19 days have passed since the New York Mets reached an agreement with Correa for 12 years, $315 million. This deal was never officially agreed to after concerns arose from Correa's physical exam. The Mets became involved in talks with Correa after a similar agreement between him and the San Francisco Giants fell through due to injury concerns. The 28-year-old opted out of his three-year, $105.3 million contract with the Twins at the end of the 2022 season and declined the 10-year, $285 million offer they made this offseason. Correa will be a fantasy asset regardless of where he signs, but his landing spot is still very much up in the air.
Before 2020, the question of Houston Astros shortstopCarlos Correa's fantasy stardom seemed to only be about his health. He had played just one full season in his five-year career but had always posted strong numbers and flashed MVP-level upside. In 2020, he did stay on the field for a "full" season, but he really underwhelmed in those 58 games. Correa hit just .264/.326/.383 with five home runs and zero steals. Correa is now entering his age-26 season with twice as many question marks as before. Not only do the health questions exist, but now we cannot even be sure if he will be great when he's on the field. He's maintained strong plate discipline (22% strikeout rate, 7% walk rate), which is cause for optimism, but he really did not have a good batted-ball profile in 2020 with a low .306 expected wOBA and an average exit velocity of just 88.6 mph. Correa still possesses the upside to crush his low draft price, but we think those waiting for him to finally have an MVP season will be waiting forever.
