It was fine for eight years… “Laments of FA shortstop who lost $195 million due to injury concerns

Minnesota Twins Carlos Correa (29) was confident in his physical condition.

MLB.com, the official major league media, 스포츠토토said on the 18th (Korean time), “Probably no professional athlete has ever undergone as many tests as Correa’s right ankle this offseason. San Francisco and the Mets were concerned about Correa’s injury, and in the end, the 7-year guarantee period and 150 million dollars (approximately 195 billion won) were lost.”

Prior to a six-year, $200 million (approximately 260 billion won) contract with Minnesota, Correa agreed to a 13-year, $350 million (approximately 455 billion won) contract with San Francisco and a 12-year, $315 million (approximately 409.5 billion won) contract with the Mets. All were canceled due to injury concerns.

MLB.com said, “I’m surprised that concerns about an ankle injury affected his free agency contract, as Correa felt his ankle was perfectly fine after undergoing surgery in minor league Single-A in 2014.” said that he did not understand the concern about his injury.

Correa said, “Think about it honestly. no need to lie I continued to play for 8 years after my surgery. I had no problems. So I’ll do the same thing I’ve been doing. I am really taking good care of my body. I will continue to do well for the rest of my career until I decide to retire.”

Correa, who recorded a batting average of .279 in 888 major league games (933 hits in 3346 at-bats), 155 homers, and 553 RBIs with an OPS of .836, is a top-notch shortstop who can always expect good performance if there are no injuries. Last season, he had a batting average of .291 in 136 games (152 hits in 522 at bats), 22 homers, 64 RBIs, and an OPS of .833.

MLB.com said, “Correa has never been on the disabled list because of his ankle injury. This gives him confidence in routines that maintain flexibility and overall strength of the body.” During the season, Correa spends 40 minutes to an hour each day working out her chest, shoulders, back, hamstrings, and core muscles. He doesn’t lift heavy when the season starts to avoid straining his body.

“Once the season starts, I don’t need to work harder,” Correa said. I just need to be healthy. Do only the exercise you need every day. He would rather develop flexibility and play in 150 games than become the strongest player in the league and only play 80 games. He is cultivating the good balance that a player should have,” he said, emphasizing the importance of his flexibility.
