When I returned from home, the contract was KRW 335.2 billion 18.4 billion less than the initial offer of Corea.
He left to get a better contract, but when he came back, the ransom was down. This is the story of Carlos Correa (29), who failed to pass the medical test twice and failed to make the contract.
The Minnesota Twins of the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) officially announced on the 12th (Korea Standard Time) that they have signed a free agent (FA) contract with Corea.
The terms of the contract are up to 270 million dollars (335.2 billion won) for 10 years. It guarantees a total of $200 million (2483 billion) for six years, and then extends the contract on a yearly basis depending on the performance. This time, it is a formal contract that passed the medical test.
Puerto Rican shortstop Corea, who won the 2015 American League Rookie of the Year award, batted 0.291, 22 home runs and 64 RBIs in 136 games last year. His MLB career record is 0.279, 155 home runs, and 553 RBIs. It was popular in the FA market 토토
However, MLB Dotcom described it as “the most unpredictable epic in FA history.” As such, Correa’s contract process was tough.
Corea signed a three-year $153 million (10.6 billion won) contract with Minnesota in March last year, with an opt-out clause that allows them to declare FA again after the 2022 season and the 2023 season, respectively. Corea announced an opt-out at the end of the 2022 season and entered the FA market.
Corea agreed to a 13-year, $350 million (434 billion won) contract with the San Francisco Giants. However, the press conference for joining the team, which was scheduled to be held on the 21st of last month, was canceled three hours before the event. This is because abnormalities were found in medical tests. Then, the New York Mets, which continued its astronomical investment this winter, offered Correa a 12-year total of $315 million (390.6 billion won). Like San Francisco, the contract was not announced because it failed to pass the medical test.
Eventually Correa returned to the ‘home’. The original team Minnesota reached out. It is a condition of up to $270 million over 10 years. This is 15 million dollars (18.6 billion won) lower than Minnesota’s first 10-year total of 285 million dollars (353.6 billion won) when Corea declared an opt-out and left the FA market. The total amount has decreased, but the conditions for the extension have become more difficult. From 2028, the contract will be automatically extended by one year only when 502-575 at-bats are digested for four years 토토사이트
After passing the medical test, Correa attended a press conference at Minnesota’s home in Target Field, Minneapolis, Minnesota. “Unexpectedly, I came here after traveling all over the U.S.,” he said. “The contract process was difficult, but the result was okay.”
