The Twins are playoff candidates with the return of Carlos Correa

Carlos Correa has officially returned to Twins Wednesday, ending one of the most bizarre free agency sagas in baseball history.

To this day, the 28-year-old shortstop’s journey is well documented. He first agreed to sign with the giants for 13 years and $350 million, a deal that fell apart after Correa failed a physical due to a right leg injury that was surgically repaired in 2014 (when he was still a minor ). The Dishes stepped in hours later and struck a 12-year, $312 million deal with Correa, only for their doctors to show concern about the same injury. Three weeks later, he was reintroduced at a press conference in Minnesota after signing a six-year, $200 million deal with built-in acquisition and club options that could keep him in the Twin Cities for the next decade. His first foray into free agency last year landed him a three-year, $105.3 million contract with Minnesota, largely because the lockout ended the offseason 21-22 and a delayed its market.
