The contract between Carlos Correa and the New York Mets, whose contract is delayed due to medical problems, is in danger of being canceled. Negotiations are still ongoing, but the situation does not seem optimistic.
‘MLB.com’ reported on the 7th (Korean time), “The New York Mets are considering giving up the contract with Carlos Correa.”
Correa, the largest free agent, succeeded in signing a 13-year, 350 million dollar (approximately 441 billion won) contract with the San Francisco Giants last year, and the choice to break up with the Minnesota Twins after one year seemed to be paying off. However, a variable occurred that no one expected. It was a medical problem. San Francisco canceled the event three hours before Correa’s induction ceremony.
After his contract with San Francisco fell apart, Correa was soon looking for a new destination. It was the New York Mets, owned by ‘billionaire’ Stephen Cohen. The Mets found an agreement on a 12-year, $315 million contract less than a day after Correa and San Francisco parted ways. However, in the Mets’ medical test, a problem with Correa’s physical condition was found, and he is unable to sign the contract.
‘MLB.com’ said on the 4th, “There is no sign that the Mets want to withdraw from the contract with Correa. They are looking for a middle ground that satisfies both sides,” suggesting that there is no major problem with their contract front. But within a few days, the atmosphere completely changed. The possibility of the Mets abandoning Correa’s contract has increased. 스포츠토토
The Mets want to reduce the size of Correa’s contract out of concern for his physical condition. However, Correa and ‘The Devil’s Agent’ Scott Boras are fighting back saying they have no medical problems. The US’SNY’ said, “The Mets are very disappointed in Correa’s negotiations. Negotiations are still ongoing, but they are thinking of canceling the contract.”
As the contract with the Mets is on the verge of collapse, Correa is also busy moving. The ‘New York Post’ noted that “Correa has had re-contact with at least one or two non-Mets clubs.” And one of these clubs turned out to be ‘parental’ Minnesota.
Meanwhile, Correa started his professional career after being nominated by the Houston Astros with the first overall pick in the first round of the 2012 rookie draft, and won the American League Rookie of the Year title in 2015. It is recording 0.279 OPS 0.836.
