The star shortstop joined Minnesota on a three-year, $105.3 million contract with player opt-outs after the first two years.
The Twins look like a team that is trying to build a winner and contend for a spot in the postseason.
Correa is a good first step.
However, something funny happened yesterday as Correa arrived at Twins camp.
MLB Network insider Jon Heyman tweeted a photo of a Brinks Home Security truck sitting outside the Twins’ spring training complex and commenting that the Twins were prepared to take on Correa’s salary for this season, which comes to $35.1 million.

Well Timed, Jon
This is great timing and absolutely hilarious.
The Twins should be covered this season for Correa’s salary if they’ve got a Brinks truck to help take care of it.
And if he doesn’t opt out at any point, the Twins should be covered for that too.
But even if he does, the Twins have Brinks Home Security on their side to potentially give him a larger deal if he wants to return to Minnesota.
After all, Correa took the deal as a way to bet on himself and ultimately get a better deal down the road.
But Heyman won the internet with his photo.
It’s always nice to have a little humor injected into baseball.
Not that there isn’t already a good amount of it, but more certainly can’t hurt.
The most important thing is that the Twins are covered by Brinks, and with their help, they should be able to not only pay Correa, but potentially go out and find some more stars to sign.
