‘436.8 billion → 393.1 billion → 249.6 billion’ All-Star shortstop, why was the contract canceled twice and the contract cut in half?
The 13-year, 350 million dollar (approximately 436.8 billion won) contract has changed to a 12-year, 315 million dollar (approximately 393.1 billion won) contract. And he again agreed with the new team on a six-year, $200 million (approximately 249.6 billion won) contract.
All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa agreed to a six-year, $200 million contract with the Minnesota Twins after the contract agreement was canceled twice during the medical test phase. Due to concerns about potential injury to the ‘ankle’, the contract amount was reduced by more than 40%.
ESPN and the New York Post reported on the 11th 메이저놀이터 that Carlos Correa signed a contract with Minnesota. Correa, who repeatedly agreed to and canceled off-season contracts, returned to Minnesota, ending the turbulent free agent story.
“Minnesota and Correa have agreed to a six-year, $200 million contract,” said John Heyman of the New York Post. If he fills the vesting option, he will receive an additional $70 million,” said the terms of the contract. Depending on the performance, it will be a contract for up to 10 years and $ 270 million.
Correa also included an opt-out clause when signing a free agency contract with Minnesota in March of last year for 3 years and $105.3 million. Correa, who received an annual salary of $35.1 million last year, declared an opt-out after playing only one season and became a free agent again.
Correa hit the jackpot in mid-December last year with a 13-year, $350 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. However, his contract was canceled due to problems in the medical test ahead of his joining ceremony.
Correa later announced a 12-year, $315 million contract with the New York Mets. It was the result of a quick move by Super Agent Scott Boras.
However, the official announcement was delayed due to Correa’s medical problems with Metz. A right ankle injury in 2014 was a problem. At the time, he underwent surgery to repair a fractured right fibula and ligament damage, and a metal plate was implanted near his ankle to stabilize his leg. Even if there is no problem right now, there are concerns about the ankle condition in the second half of the long-term contract of more than 10 years.
Boras and Metz continued to renegotiate the terms of the contract, but suffered from labor pains for over three weeks. The Mets were so disappointed with Correa’s negotiations that they seriously considered canceling the contract itself.
After last season, Minnesota, which had offered Correa $285 million over 10 years but had been turned down, negotiated with Correa again, and the two sides agreed to a new contract.
Six-year, $200 million contract. According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, he makes $36 million, $36 million, $36 million, $31.5 million, $30.5 million, and $30 million over six years.
When the vesting option (four years) is exercised, it becomes a 10-year, $270 million contract. According to John Heyman, he just needs to make 502 at-bats in the final year of his six-year contract. Annual salaries for years 7-10 (total of $70 million) are $25 million, $20 million, $15 million, and $10 million, respectively.
John Heyman said, “The physical examination, including the ankle problem, is almost no problem.”
The Puerto Rican native made his debut with Houston in 2015 and won the American League Rookie of the Year award. He won the 2017 and 2021 All-Star and the 2021 Shortstop Gold Glove.
In 136 games last year, he had a batting average of .29, 22 homers, 64 RBIs, and an OPS of .834. Over eight seasons, he recorded a career batting average of 2.7, 9, 155 home runs, 553 RBIs, and an OPS of .836 in 888 games.
