Correa is one of the top free agents this winter and still on the market with MLB's lockout underway. The Cubs are among five teams who have reached out to him, along with the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers and Braves, according to Houston reporter Mark Berman.
Shortstop is one of the Cubs' top priorities this offseason. Teams are unable to make transactions during the lockout, so if there is a match between the Cubs and Correa, it won't come until a new collective bargaining agreement is in place.
