Correia joins a Twins team looking for starters

The Minnesota Twins have reached an agreement with right-hander Kevin Correia on a two-year deal worth $10 million.

Correia pitched for the Pirates last year to a 4.21 ERA , 1.30 WHIP and 89 strikeouts over 171 innings of work.

Twins GM Terry Ryan has set out to improve starting pitching this off-season.

The Twins traded center fielder Denard Span to the Washington Nationals for prospect Alex Meyer and traded what would have been Span’s replacement, Ben Revere, to the Philadelphia Phillies for Vance Worley and Trevor May.
