 In the ‘Carlos Corea Issue’, which emerged as the hottest potato this winter, the Minnesota Twins, the original team, is rapidly emerging.

The Athletic said on the 10th (hereinafter Korean time), “Minnesota club officials say, the possibility of a surprising reunion between Carlos Correa and the Twins is increasing.” jumped in before,’ he reported.

Reporter Dan Hayes, who wrote the article, said, ‘Two club officials revealed that negotiations between the Twins and Correa were in full swing. Another major league source also confirmed this,’ he added.

Minnesota is Correa’s original club and the first club to make an official offer. Correa was offered 10 years and $285 million by Minnesota before meeting the San Francisco Giants and Mets. Even at that time, the atmosphere of staying in Minnesota prevailed.

However, as fellow shortstop Trey Turner signed an 11-year, $300 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies around the same time, Correa rejected Minnesota’s offer and started exploring the market in earnest. Correa later agreed to a 13-year, $350 million contract with San Francisco and seemed to be determined, but the contract was canceled due to medical problems.

He then agreed to a 12-year, $315 million contract with the Mets, but for the same reason, it has been put on hold for the third week and renegotiations are underway between the two sides. However, the mood began to change as SNY reported that ‘the Mets club is seriously considering canceling the contract itself as it is very disappointed with the negotiations with Correa’.

Therefore, if the contract with Minnesota is in the final stage, it is unlikely that the existing contract conditions will be maintained. This is because the concerns of the two clubs about the ankle and calf area came out earlier. If one club pointed out the risk of injury, it can be regarded as ‘one opinion’, but if a second club came up with the same problem, it should be regarded as a ‘trend’.

Since the FA market opened on November 7 last year, Correa’s ‘FA Negotiation Tour’ has been idle for more than two months. He started in Minnesota, went through San Francisco and the New York Mets, and then returned to Minnesota. In addition, the Boston Red Sox is being mentioned as another third club. In the history of free agency, there have often been cases where an abnormality appeared in the physical examination and the negotiations were prolonged, but it is very unusual for this team to intervene like Correa and show a mess. 토토사이트

Correa’s target contract period of 10 years and a total value of more than 300 million dollars seems to have become virtually impossible.

After signing a three-year, $105.3 million contract with Minnesota in March of last year, Correa declared an opt-out after the first season and became a free agent again. In Minnesota, despite being on the injured list twice, he played an active role with a batting average of 0.291, 152 hits, 22 home runs, 64 RBIs, 70 runs scored and an OPS of 0.834 in 136 games. He expressed his satisfaction with the Minnesota club by declaring free agency.
