But they quickly found out the Giants’ concerns were there for a reason.
They didn’t like something they saw in a 2014 surgery and the deal is on hold.
Fans are patiently waiting whether they will get to see Correa on their team or not.

Some people are losing patience.
Evidently, with each passing day, the odds of Correa securing a $300 million contract decrease.
Several outlets have reported that there is a great chance the deal looks “very different” once it’s finalized.
That’s probably one of the hold-ups: Correa’s camp probably won’t want to sign the deal the Mets will want him to sign.
Additionally, with each passing day, the odds of other teams entering negotiations will also increase.
Nobody knows what will happen, but time is ticking.
Correa didn’t let any injury concerns derail his season last year.
With the Minnesota Twins, he slashed .291/.366/.467 with 22 home runs in just 136 games.
His OPS was a fine .833, and he displayed the kind of defense that is considered Gold Glove-caliber.
He is willing to move to third base, next to his countryman Francisco Lindor.
The whole baseball universe is waiting to see how this saga ends.
Will Correa have to settle for a short-term deal once again?
Or will he get at least something in the $200 million range?
