Where will Carlos Correa (29), who was aiming for a free agent (FA) jackpot, go?
Major League Baseball representative John Heyman said on the 6th (Korean time), “Correa must have contacted at least one other team because negotiations with the New York Mets have been sluggish for two weeks.” 안전놀이터
After the 2022 season, Correa declared an opt-out and left Minnesota to enter the free agency market. Correa, who boasted excellent hitting and stable defense, was one of the biggest free agents in the offseason and received a lot of attention from teams looking to reinforce their shortstop.
However, he is unable to stamp due to an abnormality in his physical condition during the medical test. A 13-year, $350 million (approximately 458.4 billion won) free agent contract was agreed with the San Francisco Giants, but it was canceled, and even after agreeing a 12-year, $315 million (approximately 404.7 billion won) contract with the New York Mets, things went smoothly It is not resolved.
‘MLBTR’, which delivers news of major league transfers, said, “Minnesota is one of the teams trying to re-sign Correa for several weeks. They offered Correa 10 years and $285 million (about 361.5 billion won) last winter, but San Francisco and the Mets’ proposal,” he said.
“It’s unclear if Minnesota will still make the same offer, but all things considered, Minnesota will be the Mets’ strongest contender,” he added.
On the other hand, the Mets are doing their best to recruit Correa. MLBTR wrote, “It doesn’t mean that Correa will move to the Mets, but it seems like the most likely destination. A Mets official said in a conversation with Heyman, ‘I’m sure he’ll still make a deal no matter which team gets involved.'”
With countless words pouring out about Correa’s destination, fans are paying attention to what uniform Correa will wear on the ground in the 2023 season.
