Twins land free-agent shortstop Carlos Correa in stunning $105.3m, 36 months deal

The Twins landed one of the biggest-call free agent at the market; the previous Astros star can choose to discontinue after this season or next.



Longtime Astros shortstop Carlos Correa is ready to sign up for the Twins on a 36 months deal, despite the fact that he can choose out after this season or next.

NEW YORK – Star shortstop Carlos Correa agreed early Saturday to a one hundred and five million three hundred thousand dollars ($105.3m), 36 months agreement with the Twins, rounding up his seven-season tenure with the Houston Astros, as gathered by a source familiar with the negotiations.



The source spoke on terms of anonymity due to the fact the agreement was subject to a successful physical.

Correa will earn thirty-five million dollars (S35m) yearly under the deal and might choose to opt out after the 2022 and 2023 seasons to become a free agent again. His average salary becomes baseball’s fourth-highest behind New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer forty-three million three hundred thousand dollars ($43.3m), Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole thirty-six million dollars ($36m) and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout thirty-five million five hundred thousand dollars ($35.5m).

A two-time All-Star who became the overall pick 2012 amateur draft, Correa led the turnaround of the Astros. Houston lost over 300 games from 2011 to 2013, then won its first World Series title beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games in 2017.

The Astros went on to AL pennants and World Series losses in 2019 and final year, gaining infamy for their cheating scandal that was later revealed after the 2019 season.

Correa had a career-best 26 home runs to go with a .279 batting common and 92 RBIs last year. He has a .277 average with 133 homers and 489 RBIs in seven key league seasons.

Combined with Nick Castellanos’ hundred million dollars ($100m), 60 months agreement with Philadelphia late Friday night, Correa’s deal became the 14th since the World Series of nine figures.

Six of those had been negotiated by agent Scott Boras, at a total sum of $1.0173 billion. In addition to agreements for Correa and Castellanos, he negotiated contracts for Corey Seager three hundred and twenty-five million dollars ($325m) and Marcus Semien one hundred and seventy-five million dollars ($175m) with Texas, Kris Bryant with Colorado ($182 million) and Scherzer with the New York Mets one hundred and thirty million dollars ($130m).
