Carlos Correa has been given more annual salary despite two failed contracts. Unlike San Francisco and the Mets, Minnesota eased concerns about recurring injuries with a six-year contract. The reunion of Correa and Minnesota is evaluated as a ‘win-win’.
On the 11th (Korean time), Correa reached an agreement with the Minnesota Twins for up to 10 years and $270 million, including six years and $200 million, 안전놀이터 with a vesting option of four years and $70 million. There is still a physical examination stage left, but given that Minnesota guaranteed a shorter period than the San Francisco Giants or New York Mets, and that they have already been together for a year, there is a prospect that this contract will lead to a safe signing.
The overall scale is smaller than the previous two ‘Mega Deal’ agreed upon. Instead, the average annual income increased based on the guarantee period.
San Francisco $350 million over 13 years / Approximately $26.92 million per year
Mets $315 million over 12 years / $26.25 million per year
Minnesota 6 years, $200 million / about $33.33 million per year
Minnesota got creative again after earlier signing Correa to a three-year, $105.3 million contract. ESPN of the United States said, “Looking back at what has happened so far, it seems that both sides won this contract. Correa secured a large guarantee, and Minnesota reduced the worry of recurring injuries by recruiting a star player cheaply.”
It’s not a contract worth more than $300 million, but $200 million is also a record in Minnesota. The ‘billion dollar’ contracts Minnesota signed were an 8-year, $184 million extension with Joe Mauer, a 7-year, $100 million extension with Byron Buxton, and a 3-year, $105.3 million free agent contract with Correa. 안전놀이터
ESPN said, “This is the part where you can see how much Minnesota wanted Correa. Correa is a player that Minnesota needs more than the Mets or San Francisco. It is the third place in the league’s West Division. Minnesota is the American League’s Central Division, where competitive pressure is weak.”
