Monday, The Athletic’s Dan Hayes and Ken Rosenthal reported that talks between the Minnesota Twins and Correa have “begun to accelerate,” leaving the fate of the Mets deal questionable. However Hayes and Rosenthal note talks with the Twins are “fluid” and the Mets “are not necessarily out of the bidding.”

And apparently they aren’t the only other team in the mix for the 28-year-old. SNY’s Andy Martino reports: All focus is on Twins and Mets with Carlos Correa, but those 2 teams are not alone in at least reaching out to Correa’s side recently.

The Mets and Correa struck a deal last month after his 13-year, $350 million contract with the Giants fell through. San Francisco balked after getting a look at Correa’s medicals, and now the Mets appear to be having the same concerns.
