HOUSTON – Houstonians are waking up to the news of one of the Astros’ most prized players reportedly leaving the team.

Multiple reports said early Saturday that Astros SS Carlos Correa has signed a 3-year deal with the Minnesota Twins, totaling $105.3 million, with a yearly payout of $35 million, making his salary the fourth highest in Major League Baseball.
