According to several sources such as Jon Heyman from MLB Network and Mark Feindsand, also from the same medium, they leaked information that finally the Houston Astros had reached a salary agreement with the Puerto Rican shortstop Carlos Correa, one of the ten players of MLB that they were awaiting arbitration hearings.
According to both journalists, the agreement is for one year and US$11.7 millones In return. It should be remembered that at first, Correa rejected the US $ 9.75 million that had been offered to the shortstop, since he requested to win neither more nor less than US $ 12.5. Given that both parties negotiated successfully, it can be said that the final agreement was just over half a million dollars above the midpoint.
Had it not been for the pandemic that brought down plans for a full MLB season, the Puerto Rican would have earned US $ 8 million, however his salary, like the rest of the Major League Baseball players, was prorated because they were played only 60 regular role games.
It is worth mentioning that this is the last year of refereeing for the one who was once named Rookie of the Year in 2015 at 20 years of age. It is not yet clear if the Astros have formally discussed a contract extension with the Ponce, Puerto Rico native, but what is clear is that the lanky shortstop wants to remain part of the organization – in fact, recently. stated that his wish is “to be an Astro for life.”
