453.5 billion won and 155 home run shortstop to SF… “ML’s all-time high, becoming a signboard for 10 years”
The destination of Carlos Correa, the top shortstop in the major leagues, has been decided.
MLB.com said on the 14th (Korean time), “According to reporter Mark Feinsand, San Francisco succeeded in signing a large contract with Correa for 13 years and 350 million dollars (approximately 453.5 billion won). There is no opt-out, and the right to refuse trade for all teams is included. The club has yet to make an official announcement.”
Correa signed a three-year contract with Minnesota in March last year for a total of 5.3 million dollars (137.5 billion won). He opted out after the season and eventually left Minnesota.
Correa, who jumped into the big leagues wearing a Houston uniform in 2015, played an active part in Minnesota this season. He has a batting average of . 2.7, 155 homers, and 553 RBIs in 888 big league games so far this year.
In 136 games this year, he batted 2.9 with 22 home runs and 64 RBIs. Besides, he has a lot of big game experience in Houston. Because of this, many teams showed interest before Correa headed to San Francisco. 스포츠토토
MLB.com said, “Correa will be the face of San Francisco for the next 10 years.” “According to John Heyman of the MLB Network, Minnesota offered $285 million over 10 years,” but Correa chose the San Francisco uniform.
Correa was rated as one of the big four free agent shortstops this winter, along with Trey Turner, Xander Bogarts and Dansby Swanson. MLB.com said, “Correa’s 39.5 WAR (contribution to wins over replacements) over his first 8 seasons is the 6th best shortstop in major league history.
