Carlos Correa could return to Houston Astros after reports he has resumed talks with the team

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — It was long considered a foregone conclusion that Astros star shortstop Carlos Correa would leave the team this offseason in free hands to pursue a long-term, $300 million plus contract with the only the market rich have Yankees, Dodgers and Cubs would be willing to pay.

Time is working against Correa, made even more pressing by the MLB suspension that prevented him from speaking to other teams for months.

Now, with the start of the season just weeks away, multiple reports say that the Astros owners and their star have resumed talks over the past 48 hours and that a short-term return to the Astros could be brewing.

Late Sunday night, MLB insider Hector Gomez reported that the Astros had “intensified talks to bring Carlos Correa back to Houston.” ESPN’s Buster Olney then reported, “Agents have been predicting for weeks that Correa could land a six-year contract with the Astros, at a high salary, with an opt-out after the first year.”

Correa, the 27-year-old two-time All Star who led the Astros to the 2017 World Series title, entered the offseason looking for a long-term contract near 10 years and $350 million. However, the 99-day lockdown limited the ability to secure a deal of this magnitude.

Nonetheless, signs suggest that Correa wants to remain in Houston in the short term, with the flexibility to go free again soon.
