The MLB world was a little shocked when it was announced that Correa would sign with the Minnesota Twins prior to the 2022 season. Everyone expected the former Rookie of the Year to head to a big market and compete for a World Series. Instead, he went north and signed a three-year $105 million deal with opt-out clauses after the first and second seasons. Well, as of today, Correa took that offer.
Correa will hit the free-agent market for the second consecutive year. It’s clear he either wants a much larger contract, or to play in a much larger market. It’s more likely the latter than the former, given that he was already set to make over $30 million a year in Minnesota, so while a team like the Baltimore Orioles might seem like a perfect fit on the surface, it seems unlikely Correa would decide to go there. Here are a few places we believe he could land though.
