MLB: Carlos Correa rejected ‘monstrous’ Detroit Tigers contract worth nearly $ 300 million

Carlos Correa he knows his worth and that is why he will not accept less than what he is aiming for. This situation made it clear, since it was announced that the Puerto Rican Turned down a mega contract offer to Detroit Tigers for nearly $ 300 million. The famed shortstop has made no secret that it doesn’t want anything less than the Lindor-Mets deal to pick its next team in MLB.

ESPN journalist Buster Olney announced this Thursday, December 16, that Carlos Correa rejected a contract offer to Detroit Tigers for 10 years and an economic amount of $ 275 million dollars.

Before this information was known, there was knowledge of the interest that the Detroit organization had for the Puerto Rican, since there were approaches between both parties which evidently did not transcend.

Correa’s main objective is to be the highest paid shortstop in all of the Major Leagues and overcome the negotiation that Francisco Lindor and the New York Mets closed for $ 341 million.

Carlos Correa continues to be available in the market and it will not be until after the employer stoppage that he can continue looking for a team to leave free agency for the 2022 MLB Season.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from minute one and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
