Carlos Correa’s megadeal with Giants hits snag after physical: report

Last week, Carlos Correa and the San Francisco Giants reportedly agreed on a 13-year deal worth $350 million.

The shortstop was scheduled to be introduced as a member of the Giants on Tuesday morning, but a medical concern arose during Correa’s physical, putting the deal on hold for the moment.

Correa’s deal is the second-largest for any free agent in the history of baseball, only behind Aaron Judge‘s $360 million that was also signed this offseason, and the fourth-largest total value ever.

Two separate people told the AP that Tuesday’s scheduled press conference was put on hold due to the physical — one said the team was awaiting results, the other said a medical issue was flagged.

Correa has been placed on the injured list seven times in his eight-year career and has not played at least 140 games just twice in his career (2016, 2021). The 28-year-old played in 136 last season.
