Nearly everyone anticipated Carlos Correa to exercise his option to terminate his contract with the Minnesota Twins after the 2022 season when he signed with them last offseason. The shortstop will reportedly choose to leave with MLB free agency approaching. According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, the Twins certainly want to pursue him once more, but there is a catch.
The Twins “may stretch for (Carlos) Correa,” Heyman recently wrote. They won’t, he continued, “proceed to a $325 million deal like the one with Corey Seager.”
The Texas Rangers and Corey Seager have agreed to a huge contract. In Texas in 2022, the former Los Angeles Dodgers standout had a successful season. It would be interesting to see whether the Twins are prepared to up their asking price once free agency heats up because Carlos Correa is probably going to demand a comparable amount of money as Seager.
Additionally, Correa had a strong 2022. The shortstop made a slash. 22 home runs and a slash of 293/.366/.467. Carlos Correa, who is only 28 years old, will generate interest in the open market. He recently made a comment regarding his opt-out choice.
Correa told a Puerto Rican publication, “With the year I’ve had, my health, and my being at the highest point of my career at 28, that’s the appropriate decision.”
Teams who are listed as prospective bidders for Carlos Correa include the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, and others. His talent is definitely great, and in MLB free agency, he will be looking for a longer contract. The Twins will undoubtedly have to dig even deeper into their pockets if they want to keep him in Minnesota.
However, there is a catch. The original version of this article published on ClutchPoints.
