Correa headed to the Twins

Carlos Correa will not be returning the Houston Astros for the 2022 season. Significantly, the former No. 1 overall pick inked three-year, $105.3 million contract with the Twins. Notably, he had  been with Houston since the team drafted him 2015.  Considerably, CBS sports had him as the No.1 free agent.

History with Stros

The Puerto Rican had a . 481 slugging percentage in seven seasons with the Astros.  In 2017, the Astros were found cheating using signal stealing devices. In a later interview Correa, said that he banged on a trashcan.

Reaction

Correa’s former teammate, Alex Bregman, is happy to see him get paid. Here’s what the All-Star had to say:

The business at baseball can be borderline cruel at times. Here’s how Astro’s manager Dusty Baker found out his star shortstop was taking his talents to the twin cities.

Losing Correa certainly hurts the defending AL pennant holders. Surely, former MVP Jose Altuve is sad to see his longtime teammate go.

 

Rumors

The Rumors of Correa leaving Houston began in 2021 after rumors said Correa would be heading to New York to play for the Yankees. This is where most projections had him going.

Twins making moves

If any team is making moves in the MLB it would be the Twins. Emphatically, they have traded away first baseman Josh Donaldson to get catcher Gary Sanchez  and Gio Urshela from the Yankees, and they also traded for pitcher Sony Grey from the Reds.
