According to MLB insider Jon Heyman, Correa may ultimately decide between signing with the Dodgers or Houston Astros, on the “Big Time Baseball” podcast:
“Carlos Correa, the question has been is he going to get the most money, or is it going to be Seager? It will be very interesting to see. Houston is certainly still interested. They weren’t anywhere near it with their $160 million offer. I think the big question is could the Dodgers do it if they don’t don’t do Freeman? I thought they would only go for Seager and if they didn’t get Seager, they have Turner there. But with Seager not there now, so much extra money that they’re not spending, you can’t rule out the Dodgers for Correa. Those would be my two thoughts for Correa right now: Houston or the Dodgers.”
Correa last season hit .279 with 34 doubles, 26 home runs and 92 RBI over 640 plate appearances.
