Carlos Correa and the Minnesota Twins shocked Major League Baseball when they agreed to a three-year, $105 million contract this offseason. In reality, it was a one-year, $35.1 million deal with player options for 2023 and 2024. Virtually everyone expects Correa to opt-out after this season and seek a long-term contract.

In 86 games this season, Correa is slashing .264/.340/.427 with 13 home runs and 37 RBIs. He boasts a 1.6 fWAR and his wRC+ sits at 120. His numbers at the plate are down from his career-year in 2021, and his fielding numbers have fallen off as well -- he boasts a DRS of just two, compared to 22 last season. That said, he's Carlos Correa and he won't turn 28 until late September. There's a lot of juice left here.

What follows is a look at five potential free agency destinations for Correa if he does opt out this offseason.


Minnesota Twins

The Twins rolled the dice to bring Correa in this offseason, giving him a contract they knew he could opt-out of. The marriage has been relatively successful so far. While Correa isn't putting up career-best numbers, Minnesota is one game out of the Wild Card hunt in the American League. It wouldn't be crazy to see the two sides agree to a long-term deal.

Correa has a ton of good years left. He's still a premier player at his position and would almost certainly be worth the investment for the Twins.
