Carlos Correa, who was considered the best shortstop in the free agent market, is going to the Minnesota Twins.
American sports media such as ‘ESPN’ and ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 11th (Korean time) that “Corea has agreed to a contract with Minnesota.” 토토사이트
“The Athletic agreed to a six-year, $200 million contract. If the vesting option is executed, the total amount can be $270 million and the period can be added for 4 years.” Depending on performance, up to 10 years and $270 million contract is possible.
Nevertheless, Correa suffered a lot of losses in the terms of the contract he wanted. He signed a 13-year, $350 million contract with the San Francisco Giants in mid-December last year. However, ahead of his joining ceremony, a problem was discovered in the medical tester and his contract was canceled.
At this time, compared to the terms of the contract, it was a big loss as it went to Minnesota. Correa seemed to soothe his disappointment by signing a 12-year, $315 million contract with the New York Mets after the contract with San Francisco was canceled, but it was canceled again due to medical problems.
The media carefully looked at Correa’s move to Minnesota, saying, “San Francisco and the medical doctor who canceled the contract with the Mets are waiting,” and “I will ponder how ridiculous it was.” The media added, 토토사이트 “It is most likely to sign with Minnesota, but neither has been confirmed.”
According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, Correa will earn $36 million, $36 million, $31.5 million, $30.5 million, and $30 million over six years. If you meet 502 at-bats in the final year of the six-year contract, you can receive an additional $25 million, $20 million, $15 million, and $10 million in annual salary in the 7th through 10th years, respectively.
That’s a lot of money, but it’s a lot less than what Correa and Super Agent Scott Boras wanted. ‘The Athletic’ said, “Worries about Correa’s right ankle cost him $150 million in seven years.”
Correa suffered a fractured right ankle in 2014. At the time he underwent surgery to repair damage to his right fibula and ligaments.
