Carlos Correa’s 12-year, $315 million deal with the New York Mets has yet to be made official following concerns with his physical.
However, a contract “resolution could come sooner than later,” per SNY’s Andy Martino, who added that negotiations between Correa’s camp and the Mets are “fluid.”
Jon Heyman and Greg Joyce of the New York Post reported there is belief that a deal is “likely” to get done and that there’s a chance that it gets completed by the end of this week.
Heyman and Joyce noted that the initial terms (12 years and $315 million) are unlikely to be changed, though the Mets may look to protect themselves with “important language additions and/or alterations.”
Correa and the Mets agreed to a deal after his 13-year, $350 million agreement with the San Francisco Giants fell through over similar worries regarding his physical.
Both the Giants and Mets expressed concern about Correa’s surgically repaired right leg. He underwent surgery to repair a fractured right fibula and ligament damage in 2014, when he was a Houston Astros minor leaguer.
