Report: Twins pursued Story, Andrus before landing Correa
Things could've turned out very differently for the Minnesota Twins.
The Twins were open to signing Trevor Story to a four-year deal worth more than $100 million and told the two-time All-Star he would play shortstop, according to Dan Hayes and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. However, talks between Minnesota's front office and Story stalled when the Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants got involved.
Story reportedly wanted a longer contract. He ended up signing a six-year, $140-million pact with the Red Sox.
Minnesota eventually landed Carlos Correa, arguably the best shortstop in baseball, on a three-year, $105.3-million contract. The deal will pay Correa $35.1 million annually and contains an opt-out after each of the first two seasons.
