Slugger San Francisco Giants and Carlos Correa reach a $350 million, 13-year agreement

According to a person familiar with the talks, star shortstop Carlos Correa and the San Francisco Giants have reached a $350 million, 13-year agreement.

The arrangement was conditional on a positive physical, so the person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday night.

Following his release from the Houston Astros, Correa became a free agent as well. He signed a $105.3 million contract with the Minnesota Twins at that time. He had the option to withdraw from that agreement after a year and $35.1 million to reenter the market.

The Giants squad that just failed in its attempt to sign free agent Aaron Judge received the 28-year-old Correa after he relocated once more.

The fourth-largest guarantee in baseball history will be made by Correa. Mike Trout signed a $426.5 million, 12-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels, Mookie Betts signed a $365 million, 12-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Aaron Judge, the new American League MVP and home run leader, will sign a contract worth $360 million for nine years with the New York Yankees, subject to a physical.

Correa was a star shortstop free agent along with Trea Turner, Xander Bogaerts, and Dansby Swanson; Swanson is the only one from that group that is still available.

Correa received the most recent lucrative contract during a spending binge in the first offseason of baseball’s new labour agreement.

Turner was signed by Philadelphia for $300 million over 11 years, Bogaerts by San Diego for $280 million over 11 years, Jacob deGrom by Texas for $185 million over five years, and Brandon Nimmo by the New York Mets for $162 million over eight years.

In his one season with Minnesota, Correa batted.291 with 64 RBIs, 22 home runs, and 22 doubles.

Three-time All-Star Brandon Crawford has served as the Giants’ shortstop since 2011. Crawford, who will turn 36 next month, had a dismal year in 2018, dropping from a.298 average with 24 home runs and 90 RBIs in 2021 to a.231 average with nine home runs and 52 RBIs.

Crawford’s salary is $16 million in 2023, after which he will be a free agent. The Giants were looking for a future shortstop because he has fought with ailments in recent seasons and might contemplate retiring at the end of his contract.

A year after achieving a franchise-record 107 victories, the Giants had an 81-81 record in 2017.

With the first overall pick in the 2012 amateur draught, Houston chose Correa, who was instrumental in the Astros’ ascent from the bottom of the AL West to their first World Series victory in 2017.

In 2021, his final season with Houston, he hit a career-high 26 home runs, finishing the season with a.279 batting average and 92 RBIs. He received his first Gold Glove and second All-Star selection.

Correa recently attended an Ultimate Fighting Championship event in Las Vegas with a number of his former Astros teammates.

In eight seasons in the major league, Correa, the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year, has a. 279-lifetime average, 155 home runs, and 553 RBIs. He has been an outstanding player with 18 home runs and 59 RBIs in 79 games during the postseason.

A sign-stealing plot marred the Astros’ 2017 victory, and since the controversy broke, Correa has received lusty jeers in several locations.

Deals for Correa, Bogaerts, and Nimmo were arranged by agent Scott Boras. With Correa’s deal, Boras’ free-agent contracts for nine players this offseason now total $1.01 billion.
