Carlos Correa celebrates Christmas with family while awaiting the fate of the Mets

Carlos Correa didn’t let his indie drama affect his Christmas festivities.

The Mets’ potential new third baseman was seen celebrating the holidays in a photo posted by his wife Daniella Rodriguez on Instagram.

Despite ongoing concerns about his medicals and a delay with his 12-year, $315 million contract with the Mets, there doesn’t seem to be any absence of Christmas cheer for infielder Platinum Glove. The former Astro and Twin wore matching onesies with his one-year-old son, Kylo, ​​and played with their Christmas toys. Correa, 28, and his wife are expecting their second child in 2023.

The jury is still out on whether the Mets and Correa will be able to seal the deal after his physical exam showed a problem related to ankle surgery in 2014. However, The Post’s Jon Heyman reported Sunday that the two parties were trying to work things out.

Before agreeing to join the Mets, the two-time All-Star had a 13-year, $350 million contract with the Giants after initially raising concerns about Correa’s surgically repaired ankle. When Correa became available again, Mets owner Steve Cohen pounced and struck a deal with Correa early Wednesday morning.

If Correa became a Met, the longtime shortstop would slide to third base while Francisco Lindor would stay short.
