Star free agent Carlos Correa is back in serious talks with the Minnesota Twins as the deal with Mets remains in limbo

The New York Mets could have serious competition for Carlos Correa. With their contract with the star shortstop in limbo, the twins, who signed Correa last offseason, have emerged as serious suitors.

Jon Heyman reported, according to the New York Post:

“The twins have been on the periphery for the past two weeks waiting to see if there is an opening after Correa’s old ankle injury was displayed in the Mets’ body a few days before Christmas. But now the twins’ talks with Correa’s camp seemed to be picking up steam.”

Heyman also said:

“The twins, meanwhile, have retained interest in the player they signed a year ago on a record $105.3 million deal and a three-year deal with two opt-outs. The twins’ doctors saw Correa at the end of the season and they know the player better as he spent most of his time with the team in 2022 before dropping out and sparking one of the most interesting free-agent dramas of all time. The twins were once believed to be on a 10-year deal worth about $280 million this winter.

The San Francisco Giants signed the shortstop to a $350 million deal before pulling out over medical concerns. The Mets swooped in, but they could also be forced to pull out over concerns.

The twins signed him last year, meaning they were likely aware of the medical concerns as well.

What could a third deal with Carlos Correa look like?

If his deal with the New York Mets also falls through, the next offer is likely to be lower than the Mets’. They offered him $325 million over 12 years.

The Minnesota Twins initially offered him $280 million over 10 seasons, so a similar offer could potentially come back on the table. However, after this whole saga, even this offer might be lowered.

While it’s not entirely his fault, Carlos Correa lost millions to that free agency.

How much further will the price fall? The $325 million deal originally agreed remains unlikely to stand even if Correa signs with the Mets.

At some point, this bizarre and unprecedented saga will come to an end, but it might not end well for the Mets.
