Twins Sign Right-Handed Pitcher Kevin Correia To A Two-Year Contract

|

The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have signed right-handed pitcher Kevin Correia to a two-year $10,000,000 contract.  Correia will earn $4,500,000 in 2013 and $5,500,000 in 2014.

Correia, 32, went 12-11 with a 4.21 ERA (171.0 IP, 80 ER), 89 strikeouts and 46 walks in 32 appearances (28 starts) for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012.  Last season marked his fourth straight season with double-digit wins and at least 26 starts.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound right-hander was a 2011 All-Star as a member of the Pirates after beginning the season 11-7, the fourth most wins in the majors at the All-Star break. Correia was originally selected by the San Francisco Giants in the fourth round of the 2002 First-Year Player Draft out of Cal Poly.

The San Diego native has a career record of 60-65 with a 4.54 ERA (1066.0 IP, 538 ER), 712 strikeouts, 381 walks and two complete games in 290 appearances (159 starts) over parts of 10 seasons with the Giants (2003-08), San Diego Padres (2009-10) and Pirates (2011-12).
