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.
Mar 14 - 11:44 AM

Mariners signed RHP Kevin Correia to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 34-year-old right-hander posted a rough 5.44 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 154 innings last season between the Twins and Dodgers. Correia will function as organizational rotation depth this year for Seattle.
Mar 9 - 2:33 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Astros are "among the team" looking at Kevin Correia.

The Astros weren't able to land Ryan Vogelsong, so they're moving on to other back-end starter types. In addition to Correia, they've also been connected to Kyle Kendrick. Correia held a 5.44 ERA in 26 starts and three relief appearances last season between the Dodgers and Twins, so he shouldn't cost much.
Jan 26 - 7:24 PM

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, free agent Kevin Correia has become "more engaged" with 3-4 teams.

In other words, he may be getting close to choosing a team. Correia posted a rough 5.44 ERA in 26 starts and three relief appearances this past season between the Dodgers and Twins. He should come very cheap.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Rockies are among a "group of teams" showing early interest in free agent right-hander Kevin Correia.

Correia, 34, had a rough 5.44 ERA over 26 starts and six relief appearances this season between the Twins and Dodgers. He has decent career numbers at Coors Field, but things probably wouldn't get much better with a move to Colorado.

Kevin Correia was rocked on Sunday, allowing seven runs -- five earned -- including three home runs in a loss to the Mets.

Correia gave up home runs to Travis d'Arnaud, Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada on the afternoon. He gave up seven hits in all, striking out just one. The loss was his first since joining the Dodgers, but the right-hander owns a 6.43 ERA in three starts with the club. Correia is headed to the bullpen when Hyun-Jin Ryu returns from the disabled list.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly confirmed Sunday that Kevin Correia will return to the bullpen when Hyun-Jin Ryu returns from the disabled list.

The date of Ryu's return is still up in the air, but it sounds as though Correia will have at most one more trip through the Dodgers rotation. After Sunday's debacle, he shouldn't be touched in fantasy leagues anyways.

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.

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.

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.
