The signing marks the end of a highly unusual foray into free agency for the 28-year-old, two-time All-Star, who saw two prospective agreements fall through over apparent concerns about his injury history.

First, Correa had reached terms with the San Francisco Giants on a whopping $350 million contract. When that was nixed, he agreed to a $315 million pact with the New York Mets.

That, too, never went official, leaving Correa to re-up with the Twins, with whom he spent 2022 after beginning his career with the Houston Astros, a run that included a World Series title in 2017. The Twins deal could be worth as much $270 with vesting options, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Tuesday's development brought closure to a near monthlong saga that is virtually without precedent in MLB history.

On social media, journalists and fans reacted with a wide array of responses, from disbelief to humor.
