Minnesota holding Correa’s hand despite ‘two medical dropouts’… why did you want
Carlos Correa, who suffered two contract failures, will eventually remain with the Minnesota Twins, his original team. Why did Minnesota make a risk-taking investment?
‘MLB.com’ reported on the 11th (Korean time) that “Corea has agreed to a six-year, $200 million free agent contract with Minnesota.”
The deal included an additional four-year, $70 million option. If the option runs, Correa will receive up to 10 years and $270 million.
In December of last year, Correa agreed to a free agent contract with the San Francisco Giants for an astronomical sum of $350 million over 13 years. However, his previous history of ankle injuries caused problems in the medical and his contract was voided.
Afterwards, Correa signed a 12-year, $315 million contract with the New York Mets, who were moving at light speed in the market. However, he again failed the physical examination. As a result, he failed the medical test twice.

Ahead of last season, Correa signed a three-year, $105.3 million contract with Minnesota. Last year, Correa recorded a batting average of 0.291, 22 homers, 64 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.834. After the season, Correa opted out and returned to free agency.
In the end, Correa turns around and stays in Minnesota. Why did Minnesota reach out to Correa, whose durability was questioned?
‘MLB.com’ said, “The trade structure between Minnesota and Correa is inherently less risky than the trade between San Francisco and the Mets.” It is worth paying attention to. Except for the absence due to Corona 19 and the aftermath of getting hit by a ball in his hand, he played in 136 games last season.”
The media then mentioned the solid trust relationship that Minnesota and Correa have built over the past year. “Over the course of the year, there has been far more mutual respect than both sides could have hoped for. This time around, Correa and Byron Buxton will be together until at least 2028.”
