"Heyman reports that Correa will play third base, with the Mets’ incumbent. Francisco Lindor, keeping his shortstop job. This isn’t an Alex Rodriguez/Derek Jeter situation; Lindor is a very good defensive shortstop, and by some measures better than Correa is. Between the two, you’d likely project Correa, taller and with some back issues in his past, to have to move off shortstop first. Steamer pegs this as a 3 1/2-win upgrade for the Mets, and as someone very high on Correa, I think it’s closer to five wins."
