Is Carlos Correa fit to play baseball for the San Francisco Giants?
One of the biggest names, and most opinion-dividing players in MLB has had his introduction as a Giant delayed amid “medical concerns” that have arisen.
Just a week after Carlos Correa signed a mammoth 13-year, $350 million contract with the San Francisco Giants, it looks like all may not be a rosy as it first appeared.
Giants beat writer Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the official club introduction was postponed due to the Giants “awaiting test results.” Ronald Blum of the Associated Press reported that “a medical issue was flagged” during Correa’s physical examination.
There is no information about what that issue might be, and in fact it may in the end be nothing. The Giants may simply want further tests or have evidence of something far more serious, but the fact that they postponed the introduction may indicate that this is something that we should keep our eye on.
Carlos Correa is one of the best shortstops in baseball, and has been for most of the last decade. A key member of the Houston Astros scandal-plagued 2017 World Series championship team, Correa has been one of the few players who have been unable to move beyond the fans’ ire, due in part at least to his unapologetic stance toward the criticism.
It looked as is if Correa might sign for the Dodgers and management were reportedly a whisker away from finalizing a deal with him, when they suddenly closed off negotiations citing the fact that signing Correa would antagonize a large part of their fan base.
He subsequently did a massive deal with west coast rivals the San Francisco Giants, a deal which now may be jeopardized by this development.
