Carlos Correa (27) seems to have contacted another team after negotiations with the Mets were not over.
Correa’s past injury history is holding him back. Correa, who came to the free 안전놀이터 agent market, signed a 13-year, 350 million dollar (approximately 444.3 billion won) contract with San Francisco. However, a problem occurred during the medical test. A fibula fracture suffered in 2014 was a problem. Ultimately, San Francisco delayed Correa’s induction ceremony.
When San Francisco hesitated to sign Correa, the New York Mets approached quickly. Mets owner Steve Cohen stepped forward and signed a 12-year, 315 million dollar (approximately 400 billion won) contract. However, the Mets are also unable to finalize a contract with Correa. Correa’s agent, Scott Boras, insisted that Correa’s past injuries would not be a major problem, but the Mets are under a 12-year long contract, so it seems that there is a burden of not knowing when an injury will occur.
As the contract was not finalized, it seems that Correa has contacted another team. John Heyman of the American media ‘New York Post’ said on the 6th (Korean time), “There was friction once or twice on the Correa side in negotiations with the Mets. They contacted other teams other than the Mets again.” “There was a lot of hope that it could be done. But the problem was not resolved and Boras contacted other teams.”
According to Heyman, Correa’s former team, the Minnesota Twins, also appear to have spoken. I don’t know how detailed the talks have been with other teams, but the Mets seem confident they can sign Correa. “The Mets officials said, ‘I don’t think Cohen’s going to let him go,'” Heyman said.
“General manager Billy Appler and the Mets’ top lawyers have been negotiating over the past two weeks, and Cohen, who was vacationing in Hawaii when he signed Correa, now appears to be involved in negotiations around him,” he said. It will be a signal,” he added.
