Minnesota Twins Carlos Correa (29) announced that he would not participate in the World Baseball Classic (WBC).
On the 7th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported that Correa, who was scheduled to participate in the WBC held in March as a member of the Puerto Rico national team, was unable to attend due to her second child.
Minnesota’s absence from the WBC is entirely a family affair. There is no health problem,’ he said, saying that he had nothing to do with Correa’s injury issue. This is a statement conscious of Correa’s injury discovered during the FA contract process.
Correa’s second son is due on March 12. Puerto Rico, which is in Group D, will have a preliminary round from the 12th to the 16th. Correa intended to play for Puerto Rico, but after consulting with the club, he decided not to attend the WBC.
Minnesota general manager Derek Palvey said, “We had careful discussions with Correa. It came to the conclusion that not participating in the WBC was the best option. Correa was also proud of playing for his country, and he sincerely wanted to participate.”
The media said, ‘If Correa participated in the WBC, she had to go on maternity leave in an incomplete body condition and have to digest the schedule to play the tournament again. And it would have started the season,’ said Correa, explaining why he did not compete in the WBC. 먹튀검증
Correa heated up the Stove League this time. After becoming a free agent, Correa signed a 13-year, $350 million mega deal with the San Francisco Giants, but an abnormality was found in his right ankle during a medical test, and his final contract was terminated.
The New York Mets immediately approached Correa. He agreed to a 12-year, $315 million contract. However, for the same reasons as in San Francisco, his final contract was not finalized.
In the end, Correa signed a free agent contract with Minnesota, the original team, for a total of 200 million dollars over 6 years.
