Shorstop Carlos Correa is returning to the Minnesota Twins on a brand new contract. The new deal is reportedly worth $200 million (maxing out at $270 million) over six years. This was a true free agency for Correa, who briefly flirted with the Giants before returning to Minnesota.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
The two-time All-Star, Platinum Glove-winner and Rookie of the Year began his career in 2015 with the Houston Astros. He would go on to play in two World Series with the Astros, winning one in 2017. That World Series trophy would be marred by controversy as cheating scandals befell the franchise.
In 2022, Correa’s first free agency offseason, he agreed to a three-year deal with the Twins, with each year including an opt-out option. After batting almost .300, he opted out of those final two years to secure a more lucrative contract. He succeeded, albeit with the team he considered leaving.
