NYY retreat · MIN all-in? Every day hot Correa recruiting battle
There are endless rumors about signing Carlos Correa (28) of the Major League Baseball (MLB).
MLB.com, citing Jim Borden’s coverage of The Athletic, said, “Six teams are interested in recruiting Correa, but the closest teams are the Chicago Cubs and (original team) Minnesota Twins.”
A contract source with a specific period and total amount has not been released. Several speculations abound. There have already been reports that Minnesota will offer the largest contract ever for the team, and there is talk that the Cubs have made a two-track move to sign another free agent infielder, Dance Biswanson and Correa.
It is rumored that the San Francisco Giants, who have been trying to recruit free agents such as Aaron Judge, but have no results, also see Correa as the ‘best target’.
Among the teams initially reported, the Yankees seem to have taken a step back. According to MLB Network’s John Heyman, the Yankees are interested in signing Correa, but seem to be focusing more on negotiations with starting pitcher Carlos Rodon. He saw that it was not easy to organize positions with infielders such as DJ LeMay Hughes and Josh Donaldson.
Correa is one of the biggest free agents (FA) in the Stove League. After signing a three-year contract with Minnesota in March for $105.8 million, he exceeded the clause that allowed him to exercise opt-out (breaking the contract and obtaining free agent status again) after the end of the 2022 season, and batting average of 0.291 and 22 home runs in the regular season. After recording, he came back to the FA market. 메이저놀이터
Infield free agents Trey Turner and Xander Bogarts signed with the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres, respectively. Correa’s share price is rising. As a result, an interesting Stove League is unfolding.
