This team will make a massive offer to Carlos Correa

If Carlos Correa leaves Minnesota this offseason, it apparently won’t be due to a lack of Twins tryouts.

The Twins won the Corra contest in Major League Baseball’s previous free agency installment, but there’s no guarantee the star shortstop will stay with the organization going forward. Corra recently waived his contract after a strong first season in Minnesota and his price will likely be increased due to the elite group of shortstops joining him on the open market.

Two-time All-Star numbers will have a very robust market, which will include the Twins, according to KSTP’s Darren Wolfson. In fact, the longtime Twins reporter suspects Minnesota will be one of the most aggressive teams chasing Correa.

“They’re going to make him a really nice offer,” Wolfson said on “Mackey & Judd,” as transcribed by Sports Illustrated. “In fact, I was told this week that they are pushing for closure as soon as possible. They are going to make the richest offer in team history.

Wolfson added that it would likely take a seven-to-nine-year contract worth between $265 million and $300 million to land Correa, who turned 28 at the end of September. Wolfson also reported that the Twins were “open” to giving Correa several player options, much like they did when they signed him to a three-year contract at the end of March.

These factors suggest Correa is likely to end up staying in Minnesota. The same goes for the betting market, where the Twins have the third-shortest odds to sign the star shortstop.
