In 2023, Correa will earn a base salary of $32,000,000 and a signing bonus of $4,000,000, while carrying a total salary of $33,333,333.

Correa will have an opportunity to receive an additional $70 million over four vesting years with the Twins, based on plate appearances.

The Mets’ original agreement with Correa was for 12 years and $315 million. After examining Correa’s physicals, the Mets were willing to guarantee $157.5 million over six years with the rest of the contract contingent upon plate appearances and innings played in the field.

Correa was set to earn $350 million with the Giants, then $315 million with the Mets. Now, he reportedly make $200 million guaranteed before incentives with the Twins.

It is certainly possible that Minnesota becomes the third team to back off a deal with Correa over injury concerns, but since Correa played for the Twins last year, they know him better than the Giants or Mets do.

Until the Twins make it official, there is still a hurdle before Correa’s free agency saga is finally over. For now, though, the Twins seemed to come out on top after being spurned twice.

At first it seemed Correa’s winter would proceed straightforwardly. He became one of the best players in the game with the Astros but did not receive the kind of long-term offer he desired in his first foray into free agency, a year ago.

He signed with the Twins for three years and $105.3 million with an opt-out after each year, and after posting an .834 OPS in 2022, he exercised the first one.
