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.
This comes less than 24 hours after Texans QB Deshaun Watson waived his no-trade clause and was traded to the Cleveland Browns.
The deal is still pending and if approved, Correa’s time with Houston will end.
