According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Pittsburgh Pirates are motivated to deal right-hander Kevin Correia before Tuesday's July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. With the acquisition of Wandy Rodriguez, Correia has found himself as the odd man out and has been transitioned into the bullpen. But because he's only owed $1 million rest of the season, he could be a nice acquisition for a team with a limited budget (and assets) looking for a starting pitcher.


The 31-year-old has posted a 4.24 ERA across 108 1/3 innings of work (19 starts) on the season, along with a 4.2 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9. But, again, he's owed just $1 million rest of the season and is a free-agent at season's end. Correia would make sense for a team not looking to add payroll.
