Phillies @ Dodgers July 9, 2015: This Could Have Been Kevin Correia

I’m really digging this Phillies series because they’re forcing me to learn about players I’ve never heard of. Yesterday, it was Adam Morgan. Today, it’s Severino Gonzalez, who has been recalled from Triple-A for the fourth time this season to make the start. (This was supposed to be old friend Kevin Correia, but he was DFA’d earlier this week. Too bad.) Phillies...

Jonathan Pettibone could require a second surgery

The Phillies subtracted Kevin Correia and Sean O'Sullivan from their rotation this week and added young arms Severino Gonzalez and David Buchanan. With the team attempting to give young guys every opportunity to get playing time, it makes sense. Unfortunately, one young Phillies pitcher is still on the mend and...

Kevin Correia designated for assignment by the Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies are in need for a lot of pitching help, probably more so in the future than now but Kevin Correia is not part of those plans. Correia has been designated for assignment by the Phillies before he was scheduled to start on Thursday for the team. Correia went 0-3 with a 6.56 ERA in five starts, and spent some time down with triple A as well, where he wasn...
