Carlos Correa makes an unmissable comment about 2023

Before the season began, and after the lockout, the Minnesota Twins signed shortstop Carlos Correa to a three-year, $105.3 million contract.

The deal, however, had opt-out clauses after each year, allowing the talented infielder to re-enter the market if he felt he could get a better deal elsewhere.

At this point, whether or not Correa will return to Minnesota in 2023 remains an open question.

The team collapsed in September and will not make the playoffs.

Correa had to battle through some injuries, but has been excellent when he was healthy.

In 130 games and 565 plate appearances, he is slashing .287/.363/.463 with 21 home runs, 68 runs and 61 RBI for the Twins.

He made some really interesting comments about his future in Minneapolis.

He said that when he goes to the mall, to a store and wants something, he just buys it.

Minnesota may need to pay Correa more to stay

In the metaphor, he is the product: if the Twins really want him, they just want to pay him.

He appears to be hinting that he would be willing to opt out of the deal and renegotiate another to stay in Minnesota, but under different terms.

If you don’t like the market for it, you can just jump in and win $35.1 million in 2023.

Still, with those stats and his usual defensive excellence, Correa could find a team willing to give him more long-term security.

He could then use that hypothetical offer as leverage against the Twins, a team that will have a lot of money to spend in the offseason.

We’ll find out in the coming months if the Twins can retain the talented shortstop.

If they do, they will be well positioned to be successful next year.
