The New York Mets signed star shortstop Carlos Correa to a 12-year, $315 million deal after the San Francisco Giants showed some hesitation because of concerns about Correa’s physical examination. And now, it appears that the Mets suddenly have concerns about the health of his leg that might put their deal in jeopardy.

Major League Insiders Ken Rosenthal and Dan Hayes of The Athletic broke the shocking story about Carlos Correa on Saturday afternoon, and the MLB world was quick to react on Twitter.

“The Mets are not currently responding to questions about the status of the deal, but I can confirm through 2 league sources that there is a some kind of concern about Correa’s physical. Scott Boras not immediately available for comment either. Stay tuned,” Mets reporter Andy Martino said on Twitter.

“Carlos Correa will be the first MLB player in history to sign with 3 teams in a week,” Korked Bats joked on Twitter.

“The Mets pulled an “Elon buying Twitter” on Correa,” Sean Keeley of Awful Announcing and The Comeback joked.

“Should read entirety of report from Ken & Dan here. There’s a lot of context, especially considering Cohen obviously wanted him badly enough to talk on record other night with NY Post. Concerns don’t necessarily mean a deal won’t be finalized. Regardless, quite a development,” said Mets writer Will Sammon of The Athletic.

It’s definitely a massive development that baseball fans will be following closely over the next few days.
