It’s already been reported that the Tigers offered Correa -- the top shortstop in a loaded free-agent class -- a 10-year deal worth $275 million.
But Morosi broke down more details about the offer. He said the Tigers gave Correa three separate opt-out clauses and included a provision that would give him a $10 bonus for finishing top five in MVP voting. That provision would have been active for half of the 10-year contract, Morosi said.
Here’s the full excerpt:
Corey Seager received 10-year, $325 million deal from the Texas Rangers, so it’s easy to understand why Correa would reject the Tigers’ offer.
In the end, Detroit reached a six-year, $140 million pact with Baez.
