Twins land Carlos Correa

The biggest name remaining on baseball’s free agent market is going to be a Minnesota Twin. Shortstop Carlos Correa has agreed to a three year deal with Minnesota that will pay him $105.3 million dollars over the next 3 years, with an opt out after the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

Correa, who was a 2021 All-Star hit .279/.366/.485 (131 OPS+) with 26 home runs, 34 doubles, 92 RBIs and 104 runs scored for Houston last year.

The news of Correa’s move to Minnesota comes on the heals of several blockbuster trades that the Twins made last weekend including a trade with the Yankees that sent third baseman Josh Donaldson in exchange for catcher Gary Sanchez and infielder Gio Urshela. The Twins also added starting pitcher Sonny Gray in a deal with the Reds last weekend as well.
