Where is Carlos Correa’s favorite destination after switching agents? Adding Scott Boras to the mix makes an instant big difference.
Correa’s Contract Expectations Soar immediately after adding Scott Boras to the mix. Boras customers rarely get less than they deserve, MLB keyed or not. As one of the most outspoken agents in baseball, Boras can turn the market in his favor and expect him to do so after adding a player like Correa to his rolodex.
So what kind of contract is Correa looking for?
Before the start of the lockdown, Correa is said to want a deal in the range of $330 million – $350 million, albeit over the course of a decade. Such a contract would pay him more than Corey Seager, who signed a 10-year, $325 million deal with the Texas Rangers earlier this season.
Of course, Seager and Correa play the same position, with the latter being considered the better overall talent.
Carlos Correa Rumors: Could a Mysterious Team Appear?
When ranking those who are suitable for Correa, one must start with a possible mystery team. Heck, Correa wouldn’t have been Boras’ client if a mysterious group hadn’t appeared at some point during the negotiations.
Boras often discloses such information to the media in hopes of raising prices for its customers. It works in his favor most of the time. From time to time, the mysterious team says it doesn’t know where to sign a player of Correa’s caliber, especially for the money he’s asking.
A mysterious team for Correa could be – just spewed out here – or the Mets, Nationals or even the Tigers.
It’s correct, The Mets already have Lindor at the shortstop, but no one knows how much Steve Cohen will spend on offensive talent. With DH likely in the National League, the New York daily lineup could have room for Correa and Lindor.
The Nationals aren’t far out of the World Series, and pairing Correa with Juan Soto makes them a lot more dangerous, even after trading Max Scherzer last season.
The tigers, of course, is said to have been on Correa before they signed Javier Baez. But why not both? AJ Hinch has a connection to Correa from their Houston days. Baez has switched positions for Lindor once with the Mets, there is no stopping him from doing so again.
Mystery team aside, who else makes sense to Correa?
