The Mets’ Carlos Correa deal has gone up in smoke.
Correa is instead returning to the Minnesota Twins, The Post’s Jon Heyman reported Tuesday afternoon. The 28-year-old shortstop is getting a six-year, $200 million contract from the Twins and can also get four more vesting years with an additional $70 million.
The Mets raised concerns about Correa’s surgically repaired right ankle following a 12-year, $315 million agreement.
Correa initially struck a deal with the Giants for 13 years and $350 million, but that deal fell apart because San Francisco had the same concern about Correa’s ankle.
