People ask me if I put pressure on myself. Honestly, I don’t. To me, pressure creates distractions and there is no time for distractions in baseball. To play this game you need to be as focused as possible. When you work hard every single day and you prepare yourself the right way, there should be no doubt in your mind you are going to perform out there.
That’s what I’m focused on, during the season and during the offseason. My goal is just to get better every single day so I can make my team better — improve my skills so I can help our team compete for a ring.
If the season started today, I’d be ready.
I’m good to go.

I always pictured myself getting to the big leagues, but I didn’t visualize it happening so quickly. Now it’s about building on last year and staying focused on what’s ahead.- Carlos Correa
