Correia's quality start completes solid weekend for Twins rotation

MINNEAPOLIS -- Entering the weekend, the Minnesota Twins dropped to 3-6 following a three-game sweep at the hands of the Oakland Athletics.

Twins rotation off to rough start in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- The big emphasis for the Minnesota Twins this offseason was to improve the starting pitching. By signing a pair of veteran free agents, the Twins felt they did just that. Through seven games of the 2014 season, however, Minnesota has yet to see the dividends. That includes Monday's home opener against Oakland, where starter Kevin Correia gave up six runs in 5 2...

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Kevin Correia threw three hitless innings and a split squad of Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 12-2 Monday.

Correia off to good start as Twins' new ace

MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Correia may be surprising Twins fans with the start he's had to the season, but nobody in Minnesota's clubhouse seems stunned by what the veteran right-hander is doing. With eight scoreless innings in Sunday's 5-0 win over Texas, Correia is now 3-1 with a 2.23 ERA in five starts this season. In all five outings, he's gone at least seven innings...

Is Kevin Correia like, Good?

When the Twins signed free agent starter Kevin Correia to a 2 year, $10 million contract this year there were two distinct reactions from fans - you either got "who?" or "oh please god no tell me you're kidding what why?"  I was in the second group.  Correia had been a distinctly pedestrian pitcher for the Pirates and Padres, rolling up a grand total of...

Pirates Notebook: Correia’s Final Start as a Bucco?

Image Courtesy: Pittsburgh Pirates Kevin Correia walked off the mound with two-outs in the seventh inning to a warm applause from the home crowd at PNC Park.

First Pitch: Correia Isn’t to Blame, But His Pitching Style is Responsible

I’ve talked a lot about Kevin Correia this year, and how I feel the Pittsburgh Pirates should replace him in the starting rotation. I don’t have anything against Correia, and I actually think he’s a good pitcher for his role. I think that role is a 4th/5th starter in a bad rotation, and a 5th/6th starter in a good rotation. When the Pirates signed Correia, they had a bad rotation...

Kevin Correia asks Pirates to Trade Him

Rob Biertempfel reports: Right-hander Kevin Correia, who last week was taken out of the starting rotation, has asked the Pirates to trade him. “I want to start,” Correia said. “For that to happen, I’ll have to go someplace else.” I think that can be arranged. Seriously, at this point, just trade the guy to anybody who is willing to take him on. He is not one of the top...

Pirates Could Trade Karstens or Correia

Jayson Stark of has a report that the Pittsburgh Pirates could trade one of Kevin Correia or Jeff Karstens, following the recent acquisition of Wandy Rodriguez. Dealing one of those two would clear a space for Rodriguez in the rotation, although the Pirates can clear a spot by just moving Correia to the bullpen. We’ve heard that they’ve been shopping Correia earlier...
