|Kevin Correia lets win slip away vs. Royals |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/13/14) Twins starting pitcher Kevin Correia had a pretty strong outing Sunday against the Royals, but couldn't earn the win in a 4-3 victory for Minnesota. Correia allowed three runs on six hits and one walk, while striking out two in seven-plus innings.
Correia was able to keep up with Royals starting pitcher Jason Vargas for most of the afternoon. Both pitchers exchanged zeroes until Minnesota took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Correia came back out for the eighth inning, but he issued a leadoff walk to Mike Moustakas. Lorenzo Cain followed with a single and Alcides Escobar then added a bunt single. Moustakas scored on Escobar's bunt single thanks to a throwing error by third baseman Trevor Plouffe. Correia was lifted from the game after Escobar's single, but he would be charged with two more runs as Cain and Escobar would both score.
Correia avoided taking the loss as Minnestoa plated two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to take the lead for good. Correia, who has a 5.30 ERA, will be back on the hill Saturday in a rematch with the Royals.

(4/7/14) Twins pitcher Kevin Correia gave up six earned runs on nine hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 8-3 loss to the A's Monday.
Correia (0-1) turned in a quality start in his debut Wednesday but struggled his second time out, surrendering two runs in the second inning and three in the third inning before giving up one more in the sixth. He'll square off against the Royals Sunday.

(4/2/14) Twins starter Kevin Correia was in line to earn a victory in his first start of the season, but closer Glen Perkins threw it away.
Correja surrendered three runs, including two earned, on five hits in six innings against the White Sox. He walked one and fanned five and appeared set for the win when his team entered the ninth inning with a 6-4 lead.
He didn't seem long for the game in the second inning, however, when he gave up four consecutive hits, including a two-run double by Alexei Ramirez, to fall behind 3-0. But he yielded just one hit and one walk in the next four innings combined while his team fought back to take the lead.
Correia will seek his first win of the year Monday against Oakland.
|Kevin Correia gets back on track in spring finale |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/27/14) Twins starter Kevin Correia finished his spring training campaign on a high note Thursday against the Red Sox.
Correia allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out one over five innings of work in a 4-1 defeat. He finished the spring with a 4.76 ERA and 3:2 K:BB ratio over 17 Grapefruit League innings.
|Twins, Kevin Correia table extension talks |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/25/14) The Twins have tabled extension talks with pitcher Kevin Correia, according to the Pioneer Press.
"We had discussions with the club regarding Kevin's status beyond his current contract," agent Damon Lapa said. Correia is entering the final year of his contract, and wants to remain with the club. "Kevin is excited by the improvements that have been made in the club for 2014, and he hopes to go out there and repeat his success and deal with things at the end of the season," Lapa added. The two sides have agreed to table discussions until the end of the year.
Correia posted a 4.18 ERA in 185 1/3 innings last year.
|The Twins have gained a reputation for acquiring and developing pitchers who are, shall we say, not afraid of allowing contact. When Kevin Correia signed with Minnesota last offseason, he seemed to be a perfect fit, as he had averaged fewer than five strikeouts per nine innings over the previous two seasons. He stayed beneath that threshold again in 2013, and not surprisingly, he registered his fourth straight season with an ERA over 4.00 and a WHIP of at least 1.30. Correia has never been an innings eater, but especially with the addition of Phil Hughes and Ricky Nolasco to the Twins' rotation, he may not amass as many starts (31) or innings (185 1/3) as he did last season. That leaves him as little more than a last resort in AL-only leagues.
