Kevin Correia beat the Padres despite allowing four runs on eight hits over five innings Tuesday.
Correia struck out six and walked one against his former team (he's also a San Diego native). Like a jilted lover forced to have dinner with an ex, Correia took his lumps but was just effective enough to come out victorious, thanks to his wing men (who scored eight runs in an 8-6 victory). He was filling in for the injured Hyun-Jin Ryu. The veteran right-hander posted a rough 4.94 ERA in Minnesota earlier this season, but has made a nice first impression in Los Angeles, winning each of his first two starts (4.09 ERA). He's not to be used outside of NL-only formats. Aug 20 - 1:42 AM

Date:

Kevin Correia will fill in for the injured Hyun-Jin Ryu in the Dodgers rotation, making his next start on Tuesday against the Padres.

The veteran right-hander fared well in his first start with his new club, limiting the Braves to one run on four hits over six innings in Monday's victory. He is still nothing more than a matchup play in mixed leagues.
Aug 15 - 7:28 PM

Kevin Correia picked up a win in his Dodgers debut by holding the Braves to one run and four hits in six innings Monday.

Correia struck out five batters for the first time in 14 starts. One could say it says more about how lousy the Braves lineup is right now than anything Correia did, but we'll just congratulate Correia on a solid first outing and victory for his new team. Whether he'll start again this weekend is unclear; the Dodgers don't figure to use a six-man rotation going forward, leaving Correia and Roberto Hernandez fighting for one spot.

Kevin Correia could make his Dodgers' debut on Monday versus the Braves.

The Dodgers are looking to give their rotation a rest, so they could elect to go with six starters for a while. Roberto Hernandez and Correia have been added in recent days in hopes that they can provide some innings, though neither of them are safe bets.
Aug 10 - 11:18 AM

Dodgers acquired RHP Kevin Correia from the Twins for a player to be named,

Presumably, the Dodgers aren't giving up a prospect of any consequence here. The Twins should just be happy to be out from under the $1.5 million or so he's still owed. The Dodgers get another fifth starter option to go along with Roberto Hernandez to help out in Josh Beckett's absence, but Correia doesn't appear to have much left in the tank.
Aug 10 - 12:41 AM

Kevin Correia took a no-decision in spite of a quality start Wednesday, allowing three runs over six frames in a loss to the Padres.

He yielded five hits, walked one and struck out three. Correia was in line to pick up his sixth win of the season but saw Glen Perkins fail to hold a one-run lead in the ninth. The veteran righty has five quality starts over his last seven tries but just one win over that stretch. He'll take a 4.94 ERA into Houston next week.
Aug 6 - 5:06 PM

Kevin Correia turned in a quality outing against the Royals, allowing two runs (one earned) in six innings, but went home with a no-decision as the Twins lost on Thursday.

Last Friday's outing aside, Correia has made great strides lowering his ERA and that continued on Thursday. The right-hander allowed only five hits without issuing a walk while striking out four. His ERA now sits at 4.89 along with a 1.48 WHIP and a 58/31 K/BB ratio. Correia will face the Padres at home next Wednesday.
Jul 31 - 11:23 PM

Kevin Correia didn’t do his trade value any favors on Friday, getting blasted for six runs on 10 hits over four innings in a losing effort against the White Sox.

Correia walked two and didn’t record a strikeout on the night. The White Sox jumped on him right out of the gate, with a pair of singles and a three-run homer from Jose Abreu to start the ballgame. He now owns a horrifying 5-13 record on the season with a 5.06 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over his 117 1/3 innings. He’ll take on the Royals in Kansas City on Wednesday.
Jul 25 - 11:04 PM

Kevin Correia fell to 5-12 after allowing four runs in four innings as the Twins lost 5-3 to the Rays on Sunday.

Correia had been on a roll, lowering his ERA from 6.11 to 4.61 over his last seven starts. The Rays stopped his momentum, pounding out seven hits and drawing three walks. The right-hander also struck out four. He'll take a 4.76 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP, and a 54/29 K/BB ratio into Friday's home start against the White Sox.
Jul 20 - 6:32 PM

Kevin Correia tossed six innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Twins' 9-3 win over the Rockies.

Correia flirted with danger, yielding seven hits and a walk while striking out just one batter, but he operated well in situations that required damage control to earn a victory in his final start of the season's first half. He's 5-11 with a 4.61 ERA and 1.42 WHIP.
Jul 12 - 8:04 PM

Kevin Correia gave up two earned runs in seven innings in a loss to the Mariners on Monday.

The veteran right-hander has now posted quality starts in five of his last six outings, a stretch that has slashed his ERA to 4.79. Correia logged a 6.11 ERA through his first 12 outings, but has collected a 2.43 ERA during the aforementioned six-start stretch. That's the good news. The bad is that the loss ties him with San Diego's Eric Stults for the most in the majors with 11. Correia closes out the first half with a rough matchup; he's in Colorado on Saturday.
Jul 8 - 12:48 AM

Kevin Correia was dealt a tough-luck loss Wednesday, surrendering just two runs on six hits and two walks over six frames against the Royals.

It was a nice showing from Correia, but Jason Vargas was simply a bit better. The veteran right-hander has now posted quality starts in four of his last five outings to lower his ERA to 4.95, which is the lowest it's been since his first start of the season. Correia will try to keep it going next week in Seattle and Colorado.
Jul 2 - 4:35 PM

Kevin Correia gave up four earned runs in six innings in a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Correia surrendered two runs in the first and two in the fifth as his record fell to 4-9. He walked two and struck out three. Though his ERA is still north of five (5.08), he had only allowed two earned runs in his previous three starts. For the month of June, he's posted a 2.74 ERA. He'll try to get back on track against the Royals as the calendar turns to July.
Jun 27 - 11:14 PM

Kevin Correia held the White Sox to two runs (one earned) over six innings Saturday as part of a victory.

Correia gave up an RBI single to Jose Abreu in the first inning and hit Gordon Beckham with a pitch with the bases loaded in the second inning, but he managed to avoid trouble the rest of the way. He struck out two and walked two in the victory. The veteran right-hander has allowed one run or fewer in three out of his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 6.34 to 5.02 in the process, but he shouldn't be trusted in most fantasy leagues.
Jun 21 - 5:28 PM

Kevin Correia limited the Red Sox to one run in six innings Monday, but still fell to 3-8 on the season.

Correia's night could have ended a lot differently, as David Ortiz didn't miss a three-run homer in the sixth by much. Still, this makes two straight effective starts for him, as he's lowered his ERA from 6.11 to 5.19. It enhances his job security, but we still think the Twins would be better off moving on.
