Carlos Correa heads West.
The star prospect has signed a record 13-year, $350 million contract with the San Francisco Giants, The Post’s Jon Heyman reports. confirmed on Tuesday evening.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan first reported the deal, which Heyman said came with a full opt-out and no-trade clause.
It is the fourth-largest guaranteed money deal in MLB history behind Mike Trout ($426.5 million), Mookie Betts ($365 million) and Aaron Judge ($360 million), surpassing Francisco Lindor’s deal ($341 million). relegated to second place for short payment. .
Last year, the 28-year-old turned down a $160 million offer from the Giants, instead signing a three-year deal with the Twins that would have paid him $35.1 million through 2022.
The two-time All-Star hit 22 homers with an .834 OPS last season — his sixth time with an OPS above .800 to go with the Rookie of the Year award and the Platinum Glove.
Correa sent an early warning to teams in the market for his services in September: Be prepared to spend.
“I go to the mall and I go to the Dior store and I want something, I get it,” Correa told reporters. “I ask how much it costs and I buy it. So if you really want something, go get it. I’m the product here, and if they want my product, they should bring it.”
The Giants did just that, making Correa the latest star to take home big money this offseason, joining Trea Turner (11 years, $200 million with the Phillies) and Xander Bogaerts (11 years, $280 million with the Padres).
The Mets considered making a play for Correa to play third base, but the Giants now have the shortstop spot locked up.
The Twins reportedly tried to keep Correa by offering $285 million over 10 years, but now have to return to the shortstop market with the biggest name left, Dansby Swanson. They compete with the Cubs, Dodgers, Twins and Red Sox as potential suitors for Swanson’s services.
