Carlos Correa Hints At Possible Mets Deal Being Finalized

The New York Mets and Carlos Correa appear to have finally finalized a deal which will land the all-star player in Queens for the 2023 season and beyond.

Weeks after the best shocked the baseball world, when owner Steve Cohen and Carlos Correa agreed to a 12-year $315 million contract, it appears the deal will finally be announced in the upcoming days. Although it is unknown what kind of deal is in place, Correa’s Instagram post on Tuesday afternoon (January 3) provided Mets fans with hope.

Taking it to his IG Story, Correa shared a photo with his 1-year-old son and a caption that read, “Going to work with daddy today.” Pictured wearing an “I love New York” onesie, Correa’s son was all smiles and so was the all-star shortstop.

Long time Mets broadcaster also views the IG post as a good sign as he tweeted, “Well, unless he’s signing with the Yankees this would appear to be encouraging.”

Correa became available after his deal with the Giants fell through. A deal which had Correa earning $350 million over 13 years. The Giants pulled back from the deal after Correa’s physical raised a red flag. Unfortunately for the Mets, Correa’s physical also raised concern for Cohen and company.

Although Correa is currently not injured, he underwent arthroscopic surgery for a fractured right fibula and minor ligament damage while playing in the minors in June 2014. He sustained the injury sliding into a base and had a metal plate inserted to help stabilize his right leg. With that being said, Correa has not missed time due to the injury. Last season for the Twins, Carlos Correa did mention he had experienced numbness and vibrating in his lower right leg when he was tagged sliding into a base in September.

One can assume that an official announcement concerning an update with Correa and the Mets should come tomorrow Wednesday, January 4.
