Ex-Minnesota Twin Kevin Correia Signs With Seattle Mariners


Do you remember Kevin Correia? Does he still haunt your dreams? Well, he is now going to be haunting the dreams of Seattle Mariners fans. Probably more like their minor league affiliates fans…

Seattle Mariners camp just got a lot more interesting with Correia trying to redeem himself with a invite to camp.

Correia lasted 54 games with the Minnesota Twins in a year and a half of work. Correia started all 54 of his appearances with the Twins finishing with a 14-26 record and a 4.49 ERA. His stint with the Twins saw his worst strikeout to walk ratio of any team he spent more than a year with at 2.10.

The Twins dealt Correia to the Los Angeles Dogers on August 9 of last season. The Dodgers granted him free agency after the season ended. Correia started three games and appeared in nine with the Dodgers last season. He had a 8.03 ERA in 24.2 innings of work.

Correia’s career peaked in 2011 when he was an All-Star with the Pittsburgh Pirates. That season paired with a decent 2012 campaign saw Correia as a free agent target for the Twins prior to the 2013 season. The Twins signed him to $10 million deal over two years.

The Twins were the first team outside of the National League for Correia and Correia certainly struggled in his time with the Twins. Not only a league switch struggle, but it looked like the bullets were not there anymore as well.

Correia is 34 and will turn 35 in August.
