For the second time this offseason, Carlos Correa's physical may complicate the completion of a long-term free agent contract.
After a deal with the San Francisco Giants fell apart earlier this month, his subsequent 12-year, $315 deal with the New York Mets may be in jeopardy.
Ken Rosenthal reports that: "The parties could agree to a restructured contract if the Mets continue to express reservations about the long-term stability of Correa's leg.
"It might be difficult for the Mets to back out of the agreement entirely after their owner, Steve Cohen, went on record talking about the deal. It also might be difficult for Correa to re-enter the free-agent market and land a comparable contract after two clubs identified the same issue in their physical examinations of him."
At least three teams have been in contact with Correa's camp in recent days, according to another report.
