Phillies designated RHP Kevin Correia for assignment.

Correia had an ugly 6.56 ERA across five starts with the Phillies. Severino Gonzalez will take his place in the starting rotation.
Jul 7 - 2:20 PM

Kevin Correia was hit early and often in Saturday's loss to the Braves, yielding nine runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Correia found himself in trouble almost immediately, starting the game in single-double-walk fashion. Four runs would come in to score on a pair of RBI singles and an RBI fielder's choice before the inning ended, and the Braves would put up another four-run frame in the fourth to end his evening. He entered the game holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over his first four starts with the Phillies, but following Saturday's debacle, he's now allowed five or more runs in three of his five starts.
Jul 4 - 10:24 PM

Kevin Correia pitched reasonably well in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, serving up three runs (one earned) in 5 1/3 innings.

Correia had shut the Nationals out through four innings, but an error by Jeff Francoeur in right field in the fifth inning helped set up the Nationals for their first run. In the sixth, a passed ball by Cameron Rupp on reliever Jake Diekman's pitch allowed a runner Correia had put on to score. All told, Correia allowed seven hits and three walks while striking out four. In four starts with the Phillies, he owns a 3.60 ERA with a 1.65 WHIP, and a 13/7 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. He'll match up with the Braves in a road start next.
Jun 28 - 4:27 PM

Kevin Correia yielded five runs over four innings of work but took a no-decision as the Phillies out-hit the Yankees to win on Monday.

The Yankees rallied for a couple of first inning runs, and Correia settled down from there. However, he served up back-to-back two-out singles in the fourth, which was followed up by a three-run Brett Gardner home run. Correia gave up eight hits overall while walking one and striking out one. Fantasy anathema, he'll bring a 4.30 ERA, a 1.57 WHIP, and a 9/3 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings into a home start versus the Nationals.
Jun 23 - 12:00 AM

Kevin Correia wasn't as effective in his second start for the Phillies, yielding six runs (two earned) in five innings versus the Orioles on Wednesday.

The Phillies were fresh off of a 19-3 beatdown on Tuesday, so Correia's outing was a day at the spa, comparatively. Chris Parmelee took him yard in the first inning for a run. They used a Freddy Galvis error in the fourth to score four runs. Travis Snider hit another solo home run in the fifth to cap the scoring. Correia, overall, allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out four. Fantasy owners are advised to keep away from Correia. He'll face the Yankees in the Bronx next.
Jun 17 - 10:11 PM

Kevin Correia held the Pirates scoreless over 5 2/3 innings Friday, but didn't factor into the decision.

Signed by the Phillies less than one week ago, Correia was surprisingly effective in his debut, allowing five hits (four of them singles) and one walk while striking out four. Of course, the 34-year-old had a 5.44 ERA in 26 starts and six relief appearances between the Twins and Dodgers last season, so we're not expecting many outings like Friday's in his future.
Jun 13 - 1:05 AM

Phillies signed RHP Kevin Correia to a one-year, $650,000 contract.

Correia exercised the opt-out in his minor league contract with the Giants at the end of May after posting a 3.58 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 25/11 K/BB across 37 2/3 innings at Triple-A Sacramento. The 34-year-old will presumably join the Phillies' rotation immediately. He can earn another $400,000 in performance-based incentives on top of the $650,000 base.
Jun 8 - 2:54 PM

Giants released RHP Kevin Correia.

He had a 3.58 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Sacramento but didn't receive consideration for a promotion, so Correia has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract. He should catch on quickly elsewhere on a minor league pact.
May 31 - 9:37 AM

Kevin Correia is expected to be granted his release by the Giants, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

Correia had a June 1 opt out. Even with all of the Giants' injuries, he hadn't been called up to the majors yet this season. He had a 3.58 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Sacramento.
May 30 - 4:11 PM

Giants signed RHP Kevin Correia to a minor league contract.

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News first reported that a deal was close, and now CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says it's finished. Correia will report to extended spring training initially to continue to get stretched out before then heading to Triple-A Sacramento. He's a depth addition for the Giants.
Apr 7 - 8:48 PM

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports that the Giants are nearing a minor league contract with Kevin Correia.

Correia was cut loose by the Mariners after posting a 16.88 ERA in three Cactus League appearances. The 34-year-old spent his first six seasons in the majors with the Giants and is now apparently close to going back there with San Francisco in need of starter depth. The Giants will be in trouble if Correia winds up spending much time in their rotation.
Apr 7 - 8:28 PM

Mariners released RHP Kevin Correia.

Correia was going to use his April 1 opt-out, so the M's just decided to cut ties with him here on March 30. The 34-year-old right-hander posted a 16.88 ERA in three appearances this spring in the Cactus League. He'll likely have to settle for another minor league deal wherever he winds up.
Mar 30 - 2:29 PM

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Kevin Correia plans to opt out of his contract with the Mariners.

The minor league deal carries an April 1 opt-out date and Correia is going to look for a new opportunity on the open market after struggling in Mariners camp. The 34-year-old right-hander posted a 16.88 ERA in three appearances this spring in the Cactus League.
Mar 30 - 2:08 PM

Kevin Correia is set to make his Mariners debut on Tuesday.

He'll work in relief of starter Hisashi Iwakuma in that contest. It's unclear at the moment if the M's view Correia solely as organizational depth for the rotation, or if he has a chance to compete for a long relief role in the bullpen.
