Source: Carlos Correa agrees to 12-year, $315M deal with Mets 3:19 AM ET ESPN News Services In a stunning turn, shortstop Carlos Correa has agreed with the New York Mets on a 12-year, $315 million deal, a source confirmed to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez. The news was first reported by the New York Post. Correa previously agreed to a 13-year, $350 million contract with the San Francisco Giants and had been scheduled for an introductory news conference Tuesday.

Correa and the Giants agreed on Dec. 13 to the record-long deal, the richest ever for the position. Correa, the 2015 American League Rookie of the Year, has a .279 career average with 155 homers and 553 RBIs in eight big league seasons. He also has been a stellar postseason performer with 18 homers and 59 RBIs in 79 games. Just about the only knock on Correa's résumé is durability. He has played at least 150 games in a season just once because of various injuries and has been placed on the injured list seven times. Correa, 28, was a free agent one year ago after leaving the Houston Astros , and he reached a $105.3 million deal with the Minnesota Twins . That agreement gave the two-time All-Star the right to opt out after one year and $35.1 million to hit the market again. He terminated his deal and went back on the free-agent market.
