After coming up short in their pursuit of the reigning American League MVP, the Giants won the Carlos Correa sweepstakes
They agreed to a 13-year, $350 million deal with the star shortstop. The club has not confirmed the move.
Earlier on Tuesday evening, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported that the Mets were entering the fray for Correa, likely driving the Giants to move quickly to get this deal done.
Correa’s arrival will usher in a new era for the Giants, who had been looking for a new face of the franchise following the retirement of Buster Posey in 2021 and were in the mix for Aaron Judge before he agreed to return to the Yankees.
Correa’s megadeal easily ranks as the biggest contract in club history, surpassing the nine-year, $167 million extension Posey signed in March 2013.
Correa’s megadeal also exceeded Francisco Lindor's $341 million deal for the largest shortstop contract by total value and tied Bryce Harper for the longest free-agent contract in history.
