Milwaukee traded longtime starter Yovani Gallardo for three young players in January. The Brewers saved some money in the transaction and theoretically opened up a rotation spot for Jimmy Nelson.
Unfortunately, the side effect of the Gallardo deal was that it seriously weakened the starting pitching depth for the club. The Brewers now have question marks at the sixth starter...
The Dodgers have sent cash to the Twins to complete the Aug. 9 deal for pitcher Kevin Correia, according to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA. How much? Not sure, but I’m hoping that rumor of $1 to $200 is true, because … hahaha.
Correia put up a 8.03 ERA and 6.33 FIP during his stint with the team, which means he miraculously managed to be worth almost one negative win in a mere...
Three days after castoff Roberto Hernandez was really, really good, castoff Kevin Correia was… really, really good. This sport is so, so dumb sometimes. I love it. I hate it. Baseball!
You really, truly could not have asked for more from Correia, who went six innings allowed only four hits, and actually struck out five. He threw strikes. He was efficient. He avoided any serious...
Kevin Correia. Really. 34 years old in two weeks, a fourth-round pick of the Giants (of course) 12 years ago, a pitcher with a total inability to miss bats, good but not elite control, no particular standout skill in getting grounders or limiting homers, is starting for the Dodgers tonight.

It took until Correia's 50th start in a Minnesota uniform before collecting his first hit as an American League pitcher, and he helped his own cause in the process. Correia not only threw six innings of one-run ball Saturday against Colorado...
After Kevin Correia's latest clunker last week, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was asked about Correia's spot in the rotation. Minnesota's skipper gave the veteran pitcher a vote of confidence, saying Correia was going to remain as one of the team's starters.
Five days later, Correia showed he indeed belongs to stay in the starting rotation.
Minnesota's right-hander tossed six scoreless...
The Minnesota Twins have had no problems whatsoever producing runs this year. There has only been one game this year where the team has been shut out. However, the main area of concern is still in their pitching, and probably one of the weakest links so far is starting pitcher Kevin Correia.
In 5 game appearances so far this season, Correia is 0-3 and has the worst...
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have shown that they can score runs. That hasn't been a problem through the first three weeks of the 2014 season.
But when Minnesota's starting pitching puts the offense in the type of early hole that Kevin Correia did on Friday against Detroit, it's tough for any lineup to mount a comeback.
Correia allowed eight runs -- seven earned -- in just...
