Carlos Correa has agreed to a three-year contract with the twins.


A person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press that star shortstop Carlos Correa agreed early on Saturday to a $105.3 M, contract of three years with the Minnesota Twins. Correa’s seven-season tenure with the Houston Astros was ended by this move. Under the deal, he would earn $35.1 million annually, and to become a free agent again he can opt-out after the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

This was a pure piece of surprise of Correa picking the Twins, given Twins have lost 18 consecutive postseason games and also finished last in the AL Central a year ago at 73-89. The salary of Carlos Correa is now baseball’s fourth-highest behind New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer worth $43.3 million, Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole worth $36 million, and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout worth $35.5 million.

In the 2012 amateur draft, Correa was the first pick and led the Astros’ turnaround. Each year from 2011 to 2013 Houston lost more than 100 games, then in 2017, they won their first World Series title by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games. Last year, Correa had his career-best of 26 home runs along with a .279 batting average and 92 RBIs.


In AL MVP voting he finished fifth and won his first Gold Glove. In seven major league seasons, Correa has a .277 career average with 133 homers and 489 RBIs. In the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year, Correa has been a stellar postseason performer with 18 homers and 59 RBIs in 79 games.

It will be a change for Correa and his family moving to the Twins. Correa’s wife, Daniella Rodriguez was Miss Texas USA in 2016. Since the end of the lockout, the catcher Gary Sanchez, third baseman Gio Urshela from the New York Yankees, and right-hander Sonny Gray from Cincinnati were all acquired by the twins. Before the work stoppage, Pitcher Dylan Bundy was signed by Minnesota to a $5 million, one-year deal.

Combined with Nick Castellanos’ $100 million, five-year contract with Philadelphia late on Friday night, Carlos Correa’s deal was the 14th since the World Series of nine figures.

At a total of $1.0173 billion, six of them were negotiated by agent Scott Boras. In addition to agreements for Correa and Castellanos, he negotiated contracts for Marcus Semien ($175 million) and Corey Seager ($325 million) with Texas, Scherzer with the New York Mets ($130 million), and Kris Bryant with Colorado ($182 million).
