MLB: Carlos Correa officially rejects qualifying offer from Astros

Apparently the Puerto Rican Carlos Correa is the main free agent of MLB during this low season And the Houston Astros are reluctant to lose it although apparently it will be very likely that the Puerto Rican will sign elsewhere, after the “poor offers” that have been made, being among them the famous qualifying offer, which is a renewal for 18.4 million dollars for one year, and has a deadline for acceptance or decline of November 17.

Now, what was expected to happen from the beginning ended up happening, since according to information from Jon Heyman of, Carlos Correa has rejected the qualified offer that the Houston Astros offered him, which they also extended to Justin Verlander , with the latter still to accept or decline said contract.

By rejecting the qualifying offer, if the Astros don’t end up signing Carlos Correa and going to another franchise, the team that ends up taking him will have to give him a draft pick from that same year as compensation to Houston, with this pick usually being top-notch. or second round.

The Astros had already offered a 5-year, $ 160 million contract within days of the World Series ending, which was rejected. According to several reports, Correa is looking for a contract of more than 300 million dollars and several years, similar to those signed in 2021 by other top SS men such as Francisco Lindor and Fernando Tatis Jr.

Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
