Being the highest-paid position player in the league is cool, but playing where it snows on Opening Day is not ideal

Former NBA veteran Andrew Bynum once famously said he didn’t care where he played because, “There’s a bank in every city.” While that is true, there are only certain baseball cities where it might snow in April. Carlos Correa chose one of those cities.

The Twins’ new $35.1 million-a-year shortstop will have his debut delayed a day because of snowy conditions expected to hit Minneapolis on Thursday. 

The Twins’ opening day game against the Seattle Mariners at Target Field has been pushed back to 3:10 p.m. Friday, where it’s expected to be 39 degrees at first pitch, but at least no precipitation is expected.


The 27-year-old Correa looked good in spring training with the Twins, going 6-for-18 (.333) with a couple doubles and two home runs in six games. 

Correa left the Astros in March, signing a a deal with the Twins worth $105.3 million over three years with an opt-out at the end of each season, allowing him to test the free agent market again whenever he wants. Correa’s $35.1 million annual salary is the fourth-highest in baseball behind Mets pitcher Max Scherzer ($43.3 million), Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole ($36 million) and Angels outfielder Mike Trout ($35.5 million).
