The star shortstop initially agreed to a 13-year, $350 million pact with the San Francisco Giants, which fell through after the team expressed concern over his physical.
The New York Mets then took a chance on him, with the two sides agreeing on a $12-year, $315 million contract.
However, the same issue arose, causing the deal to fall through.
But this morning, the star shortstop passed his physical with the Twins, which made his new contract official.
On Twitter, the Twins celebrated the return of Correa by posting a cool graphic featuring the two-time All-Star in the team’s new uniforms.

Correa’s deal is for six years and $200 million.
It also includes several vesting options that can increase the length of the deal and the amount of money Correa ultimately makes.
But the first six years are guaranteed.
The Twins are certainly happy to have Correa back for at least six more years.
The team had all but lost the star shortstop earlier in the offseason.
But as fate would have it, he would get a chance to return.
The Twins tried to offset the potential loss of Correa by signing catcher Christian Vazquez and outfielder Joey Gallo to boost the offense.
But with Correa back in the fold, the Twins look prepared to bounce back from a disappointing finish to 2022 and unseat the Cleveland Guardians at the top of the American League Central.
