The San Francisco Giants are reportedly in agreement with Carlos Correa on a 13-year, $350M contract. The deal doesn’t contain any opt-out provisions but he will receive a full no-trade clause.
It’ll be the third team in as many years for Correa, who turned 28 in September. The longtime Astro hit free agency last winter. Correa gambled on himself, signing a three-year guarantee with the Twins that paid him the largest per-year salary ($35.1MM) for a free agent position player in MLB history. That deal allowed Correa to opt out and retest the market this winter.
Correa had a .291 batting average with 22 home runs and drove in 64 RBI in 136 games last season. He was Selected first overall by the Astros in 2012, Correa was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2015 and played in three World Series with Houston, winning a championship in 2017, now infamous due to club’s sign-stealing scandal.
