MLB (w/ LA)
What happened in 2014: The man with many names was acquired from the Phillies in August and was, predictably, bad.
It’s hard to believe the Dodgers, with all their resources, had to acquire guys like Kevin Correia and Roberto Hernandez Faustowhatever to fill out their rotation. That should have been...
What Happened In 2014: That could have gone better.
When the Dodgers traded for Roberto Hernandez, Andrew Grant posted this tweet:
Gonna go with "at least it's not Kevin Correia" on this one

At the same time, the front office was also hinting that...
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...
2014 was yet another miserable season -- pitching wise -- for the Minnesota Twins. Heading into 2014, the Twin's plan was to have a rotation anchored by veterans. Phil Hughes produced a quality season, but other starters like Kevin Correia, Ricky Nolasco, and Kyle Gibson all struggled. The Twin Cities could be a potential landing spot for one of the free agent market's top pitchers...

Do you remember how sad you were at this time last night? Do you? You should. Think about it. Hyun-jin Ryu lasted one terrible inning, then left, injured. You had to suffer through Chris Perez, Carlos Frias and Kevin Correia. The offense couldn’t touch Madison Bumgarner. It was, all around, awful. The season had crumbled, some said. The Dodgers had shown no heart, cried others...
This week’s list has a bit of a Mets vibe to it…of course, New York only benefited from the first homer you’re going to see on this list. 1. Lucas Duda vs Kevin Correia, 457 feet (August 24th) Lucas Duda’s power stroke this season is one of the best things to happen in years for the Mets. He hit this one a long way up the Dodger Stadium bleachers. 2. Mike Napoli vs Sergio...
No team should have to have Roberto Hernandez, Kevin Correia, and decline-phase Dan Haren in the rotation at the same time. That the Dodgers have done it for a few weeks and managed not only to survive but to thrive is a massive achievement unto itself, but this was never the plan, and that’s why so many wanted to see the Dodgers get David Price or John Lackey or someone before...
A day off yesterday. Two games in Arizona, then a day off on Thursday before starting a series in San Diego, just a short flight away, and no games scheduled on three of the four September Thursdays.

In case you were wondering how badly the Dodgers were concerned about a starting rotation that has recently had Dan Haren, Kevin Correia and Roberto Hernandez in it, apparently the answer is “not that bad.” Bartolo Colon cleared waivers, meaning that no team claimed him and he’s now eligible to be traded to anyone. It’s a bit surprising that Colon made it through, because...
Miguel Rojas ended up playing left field in this game, in case you were wondering if you missed anything.
Today is Kevin Correia‘s 34th birthday, so I feel bad bagging on him, I guess, but then, I think we knew when the Dodgers acquired him that he was joining the rotation more out of injury-fueled desperation than out of any actual qualifications on his part. He may have unfairly...

The night started off poorly for the Dodgers, but the offense showed up to lead them to an 8-6 win over the Padres on Tuesday night.
Kevin Correia served up a 3-run home run to Jedd Gyorko (hitting .199 at the time) to give San Diego an early 3-0 lead. It was vintage Correia, unfortunately. He wasn’t nearly as good as he was in his Dodgers’ debut, but he did enough to get the...
After a very limited Monday, there are plenty of opportunities to spot start on Tuesday. Let’s look at the rankings:
Scott Kazmir takes the top spot for two reasons: He’ll face the Mets, who are 29th in wOBA over the last two weeks (.268) and he’ll face Dillon Gee, who Steamer doesn’t like. That 50/20 W%/L% split seems a bit drastic to me, but I think Kazmir probably has...

Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu has been placed on the 15-day DL with two strained muscles in his right buttock. Ryu was injured while pitching in Atlanta on Wednesday. Kevin Correia will replace Ryu in the starting rotation. Correia is 6-13 with a 4.79 ERA. Ryu was having a terrific season going 13-6 with a 3.28 ERA. Ryu joins...
The RubberDucks (67-56) went on a bit of a hot streak, winning six of their last seven games thanks to some great pitching. The team swept New Britain and took two out of three from the Fisher Cats, as well as winning in comeback fashion against the Sea Dogs in the first of three games on Tuesday night. Akron is now just 1.5 GB of first-place Richmond and 6.5 games ahead...
ATLANTA -- Coming off their most successful series since the All-Star break, the Atlanta Braves' wheels once again fell off. The Los Angeles Dodgers pulled away with two big innings in Monday night's 6-1 win, leaving the Braves with their 10th loss in the past 12 games and searching for answers. Here are three observations from the game:
1. Since All-Star Weekend concluded last month...
ATLANTA (AP) Kevin Correia won in his debut with the Dodgers, outpitching All-Star Julio Teheran and leading Los Angeles over the slumping Atlanta Braves 6-2 on Monday night.
Los Angeles has won four of six to increase its NL West lead to five games over idle San Francisco. The Braves have dropped 10 of 12 and fallen four games behind NL East-leading Washington.
Correia was tied...

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...
We don’t know what the Twins will ultimately receive for Kevin Correia yet from the Dodgers, but we do know that with Josh Willingham’s trade today, the Twins will receive Jason Adam from the Royals, a middle reliever from the triple A Omaha Storm Chasers. Any time you get something in return for what was essentially going to bring you no value, it’s a good trade. Kevin Correia...
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.
4:10 p.m. PT
The Los Angeles Dodgers made another move in their rotation, acquiring Kevin Correia from the Minnesota Twins for either a player to be named later or cash.
It’s against journalistic ethics, but I’m really tempted to just copy+paste my article from last week about the Dodgers acquiring Roberto Hernandez, and change some names and numbers.
Many baseball minds think there is no...
The acquisition of Kevin Correia not only provides the Los Angeles Dodgers with a veteran arm, but immediately gives manager Don Mattingly a chance to give his starters some extra rest.
Correia is expected to make his debut for the NL-leading Dodgers as they try to halt Julio Teheran's success at home for the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.
Amidst 20 straight days without a day off...

Sources are reporting that Ned Colletti and the Los Angeles Dodgers have traded for Minnesota Twins righty, Kevin Correia. Correia, 33 (will turn 34 later this month) has bounced around the league since making his debut in San Francisco in 2003. The move comes just days after the Dodgers sent two prospects to Philadelphia for […]
The last few days have been so much fun around Dodger-land — Roberto Hernandez! Kevin Correia, who might start tomorrow! – that it’s easy to forget that if they don’t win today’s series finale in Milwaukee, they’ll limp out of Wisconsin having been swept by a potential playoff opponent. (Colt Hynes, by the way, was DFA’d to make room for Correia on the 40-man roster...
