Carlos Javier Correa Oppenheimer Jr., a professional baseball shortstop for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball, was born in Puerto Rico on September 22, 1994. He had previously been an Astros player for Houston. Correa was selected by the Astros as the first overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. With a height of 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 m) and a weight of 220 pounds (100 kg), he is a taller shortstop who uses footwork and a more upright ready stance to hop to the ball. In order to take advantage of his long arms and range, he also uses a one-handed pickup. When fading towards third base while throwing to first bases, he also uses a leap hop.

Given that Correa reportedly had a prior asking price of more than $300 million, the parameters of the agreement are somewhat stunning. The fact that a 3-year deal worth $105.3 million gained his services is by far the biggest surprise of the offseason, even though it was also claimed that he was not seeking as large of a contract post-lockout. The Twins have gained an outstanding shortstop in his prime without taking on any long-term risks, specifically durability concerns in Correa's case, thanks to the two opt-outs that are included in the contract.
