Carlos Correa is headed West.

The star shortstop agreed to record-setting 13-year, $350 million deal with the San Francisco Giants, The Post’s Jon Heyman confirmed on Tuesday night.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan first reported the contract, which comes with no opt-outs and a full no-trade clause, per Heyman.

Carlos Correa agreed to a 13-year, $350 million contract with the Giants.

It’s the fourth-largest guaranteed money deal in MLB history, behind Mike Trout ($426.5M), Mookie Betts ($365M) and Aaron Judge ($360M) and relegates Francisco Lindor’s deal ($341M) to the second-largest for a shortstop.

Last year, the 28-year-old turned down the Giants’ $160 million offer, instead taking a three-year deal with with the Twins that paid him $35.1 million in 2022 before he opted out this offseason.

The two-time All-Star hit 22 homers with an OPS of .834 this past season — his sixth time with an OPS of over .800 to go with a Rookie of the Year award and a Platinum Glove.

Correa sent an early warning to teams in the market for his services in September: be ready to spend.

“I go to the mall and I go to the Dior store and I want something, I get it,” Correa told reporters. “I ask how much it costs and I buy it. So if you really want something, you just go get it. I’m the product here, and if they want my product, they’ve just got to come get it.”

The Giants did just that, making Correa the latest star shortstop to take home big money this offseason, following the likes of Trea Turner (11 years, $200 million with the Phillies) and Xander Bogaerts (11 years, $280 million with the Padres).

The Mets were considering making a play for Correa to play third base, but the Giants got the the shortstop locked up now.

The Twins reportedly tried to keep Correa in the fold, offering $285 million over 10 years, but will now have to return to the shortstop market with Dansby Swanson the biggest remaining name. They’ll have competition, with the Cubs, Dodgers, Twins and Red Sox also potential suitors for Swanson’s services.
