Minnesota Twins Sign Kevin Correia


The Minnesota Twins have agreed to sign free agent right handed pitcher Kevin Correia to a two-year, $10 million deal, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Correia will earn a total of $10 million in the deal. The 32 year old right hander spent last season with the Pittsburgh Pirates where he had an earned run average of 4.21.

He is the second starting pitcher the Twins have acquired in the past week, as they acquired right hander Vance Worley from the Philadelphia Phillies in return for center fielder Ben Revere.

Corriea has been in the National League his entire career since being drafted by the San Francisco Giants, and also saw stints with the San Diego Padres and most recently, the Pirates, making this stint with the Twins his first ever attempt at pitching in the AL.

Reports had also mentioned potential deals with the Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals for Correia. He has a career ERA of 4.54.
