with the twins Officially out of the comma row, shortstop Carlos Correa He has a lot to think about this off season in terms of his future with the team.
This season marked the first time in his eight-year MLS career that Korea did not participate in the playoffs. Korea made the playoffs for seven consecutive years while playing for the Astros.
The 28-year-old signed a three-year, $105.3 million deal with Minnesota ahead of the 2022 season. The contract included canceling the player’s subscription after each of the first two seasons, meaning that he is likely to leave Korea for Minnesota that season.
When asked about his future on Thursday, Correa offered an interesting metaphor to describe his thought process on the way out of the season.
“When I go to the mall, and I go to the Dior store and I want something, I get it,” Correa said, Via Fox 9 Sports. “I ask how much it costs, and I buy it. So, if you really want something, just get it. I’m the producer here, and if they want my product, they just have to get it.”
So, it looks like Shortstop wants the twins to put up a fight for his comeback next season. If the twins don’t show interest in him soon, Correa will likely withdraw from his current contract.
Thursday’s Correa quote comes about a month after he told reporters he sees himself “playing with twins for a long time” per MLB.com.
Through 130 games this season, Correa has averaged .287/.363/.463. He has 143 hits, 68 runs and 21 home runs.
