Can the contract between the New York Mets and Carlos Correa (29) be concluded?
American media SNY said on the 10th (hereinafter Korean time), “Mets owner Steve Cohen appeared on YouTube and said that the signing of Carlos Correa is coming to an end.”
The Mets, which started to reinforce their strength this winter, tried to focus on the Stove League by recruiting Correa. After the 12-year, 350 million dollar (approximately 435.8 billion won) contract with San Francisco was canceled due to a medical test, he succeeded in concluding an 11-year, 315 million dollar (approximately 392.2 billion won) contract. However, the Mets are also unable to confirm the contract due to concerns about Correa’s injury after the medical test.
While the prospects were not bright, Cohen said, “I can’t speak for the player,” but said, “I believe we will find a solution one way or another.”
Correa is a special shortstop with a batting average of .279 (933 hits in 3346 bats), 155 homers, 553 RBIs, and an OPS of .836 in 888 major league games. In this FA market, he was evaluated as one of the best shortstop players. His skills are recognized so much that San Francisco and the Mets offered him a huge contract, but his right ankle, which was injured while playing in the minor leagues in 2014 and underwent surgery, is becoming a problem.
SNY said, “A source told reporter Andy Martino on the 7th that the Mets were ‘very frustrated’ at the lengthy contract negotiations with Correa and that they were ‘considering leaving together’.”
Reporter John Heyman of the American media New York Post reported that there are other clubs that still want Correa, including Minnesota, where Correa played last year. However, Correa did not solicit offers from other clubs while negotiating with the Mets.
