Ron Gardenhire says Kevin Correia starting job safe


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Correia is coming off a Thursday night start in which he surrendered five earned runs on 10 hits, including two homers, in five innings.

"Kevin's one of our starters," Gardenhire stressed. "Paid good money to do that and he's still going to get paid no matter, so he's one of our starters. We need him to be a little more consistent."

Correia, who is in the final year of a contract that pays him $5.5 million this year, has been consistent - consistently bad. He is 2-7 with a 6.11 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 66 1/3 innings. Opposing hitters own a .321 average against him.

Tigers jump on Kevin Correia with big third inning


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Twins starting pitcher Kevin Correia was rocked Friday, as he couldn't get out of the third inning in a 10-6 loss to the Tigers.

Correia ran into trouble allowing a two-run homer in the second inning, but that was just a prelude for what the next inning would hold. He got the second batter faced out after a leadoff double, but the Tigers would just tee off from then, and Correia was pulled after allowing five straight players to reach base safely.

Correia was ultimately charged with eight runs  -- seven earned -- on eight hits and a pair of walks, without recording a strikeout in 2 1/3 innings. His record fell to 0-3 with the outing, while his ERA rose to 7.33.

He will look to settle down in his next start, scheduled for Thursday against the Dodgers. 


Big inning proves costly for Kevin Correia


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Twins starting pitcher Kevin Correia got an early lead Saturday, but a big Royals' inning sunk him in a 5-4 loss.

Correia had a 2-0 lead heading into the fourth inning, but that's where he came unraveled. The Royals only got to Correia during that fourth inning, but he gave up five runs in the frame, four of which were earned, and that was enough to cost him the game.

Correia ultimately pitched six innings despite his fourth-inning meltdown. He was charged with four earned runs on nine hits and a pair of walks, while striking out two. He took the loss to drop his record to 0-2 on the season.

Correia's ERA rose slightly to 5.47 in the start, a number he will try to lower in his next outing, scheduled for Friday against the Tigers. 


Kevin Correia lets win slip away vs. Royals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) 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.

Kevin Correia pitches well, but bad luck costs him win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) 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.
