Kevin Correia likely needs to cut down on walks to end his recent struggles.
It's an issue the Minnesota Twins hope Correia resolves as they look for a fourth straight victory when they face the visiting Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.
Correia (6-6, 4.23 ERA) has been Minnesota's most reliable starter this season, posting a team-leading nine quality starts. He's been plagued by control problems lately, however, issuing 13 walks over 22 13 innings of his last four starts, in which he's gone 0-2 with a 5.64 ERA.
The right-hander walked the same number of batters in 88 13 innings over his first 14 starts, during which he went 6-4 with a 3.87 ERA.
The Indians (51-45) might not be the ideal opponent against which to find his control, as they average a walk every 10.8 plate appearances, among the best rates in the major leagues.
