Prior to this season, the San Francisco Giants signed Carlos Correa to a 13-year, $350 million contract.
However, the deal was never finalized due to problems with his physical.
Correa’s agent, Scott Boras, quickly tried to sign him with the New York Mets.
The Mets agreed to sign him, but when the physical came back with the same results, they waived him.
Correa eventually signed a six-year, $200 million deal with the Minnesota Twins.
According to NBC Sports in the Bay Area, San Francisco should be glad they waived Correa and saved 46.6 billion won. That’s because Correa’s performance this season has been below expectations.
According to NBC Sports, Correa has 14 home runs, 53 RBIs, and a career-low OPS+ of 91 in 409 at-bats. His offensive slash line is .227/0.300/0.399/.696.
Correa has the 11th highest salary this season ($33.3 million), but his WAR is just 1.0, ranking him 324th in MLB. He’s worth just $11.3 million.
His .696 OPS is 36 points below league average (.732) and 125 points below his career average (.821). Correa is also extremely poor in the on-base percentage department, hitting just .212 with runners in scoring position.카지노
NBC Sports concludes that San Francisco has been aggressive in its pursuit of the superstar for years and seemed to finally land him last winter, but based on Correa’s performance this season, they dodged a very expensive bullet.
