Marcus Strowman took to Twitter after signing with the Cubs to recruit Carlos Correa, but the Astros shortstop took his own initiative to find out what it would be like to play for the team.

according to a Univision’s Mike Rodriguez reports, Correa called on former Cubs shortstop Javier Baez to ask about his experience playing for the organization.

The 27-year-old, two-time All-Star will have plenty of time to consider his options. Korea currently cannot sign after the collective bargaining agreement has expired and the league has been in lockdown, preventing players and teams from making deals.

Strowman beat the work stagnation on Wednesday by signing a three-year, $71 million deal with the Cubs, bypassing the Mets, who acquired him by the 2019 trade deadline.

Strowman announced his signing on Twitter and tweeted later that night, in Korea.

“Chicago needs you my dog!” Long Island native typed.

Correa has reportedly turned down multiple contracts – and, at the start of the year, contract extensions – that would have seen him stay with the Astros. Houston reportedly offered him another deal for five years and $160 million after the season.

Houston lost to the Braves in the World Series, falling in six games, as Korea batted .279 with 155 hits in 148 regular season games.
