Correia agreed to a minor league contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

The Giants have already had to scratch two of their first three scheduled starters (Jake Peavy and Matt Cain) due to injury, so signing Correia for depth only makes sense. Peavy (back) is expected to make his next start, but Cain (forearm) was placed on the DL. Correia will report to extended to spring training to get stretched after pitching in relief with the Mariners in spring training.

Correia has been granted his unconditional release from the Mariners, Fox Sports reports.

Correia was expected to opt-out of his contract after being assigned to minor league camp over the weekend. He will now be a free agent, but it's unclear whether he'll land with a major league club this season.

Correia plans to opt-out of his contract and become a free agent, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

He was assigned to minor league camp over the weekend, and apparently has no interest in starting the season at Triple-A Tacoma. He has a 4.59 ERA and a 14.6 percent K-rate for his career, so it's understandable that he is having a hard time finding a big league job at this point in his career.

Correia was reassigned to minor league camp Sunday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Correia entered spring training looking to nab a bullpen spot with the Mariners, but was a long shot to begin with. He will now begin the season in Triple-A, though an injury could lead to him surfacing back with the major league club.

Correia signed a minor league contract with the Mariners with an invite to spring training on Monday, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

He was in big league camp with the team Monday, and will serve as organizational rotation depth. Given the Mariners' young pitching talent and his 4.59 career ERA, Correia would likely need an injury ahead of him to see any starts with the big league club in 2015.

Correia is expected to move back to the bullpen on a more permanent basis following Hyun-Jin Ryu's (leg) activation from the 15-day DL on Sunday.

The Dodgers had already tipped off Correia's return to the bullpen by using him in relief Friday against the Padres. He figures to see mostly mop-up duty for the Dodgers during non-competitive games, which will sink most of his fantasy value since he'll have more difficulty picking up wins.

Correia allowed seven runs (five earned) on seven hits while striking out one in three innings of work in the Dodgers' 11-3 loss to the Mets on Sunday.

Correia has allowed 10 earned runs in three starts since coming over from the Twins. The three innings is the lowest he's pitched in a game since April 25. If he continues this poor streak, he might lose a spot in this Dodgers rotation.

Correia pitched five innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six batters before picking up his second-straight win (2-0) with the Dodgers in Tuesday's game against the Padres.

After an less-than inspiring year with the Twins, Correia has so far done the job in his two outings with the Dodgers, getting victories in both his starts. Correia has a 4.09 ERA and 11:2 K:BB ratio with the Dodgers. Still, we need more of a sampling size with his new team before we can fully trust Correia. His next start is set for Sunday at home against the Mets.

Correia will start Tuesday in place of Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute), David Vassegh of AM 570 Los Angeles reports.

An under-the-radar acquisition from the Twins last week, Correia will start Tuesday and should stick in the rotation until Ryu returns from the DL so long as he performs even adequately. In 24 starts in total this season, Correia has posted a 4.79 ERA and 1.43 WHIP, but he held the Braves to one run over six innings Monday in his Dodgers debut.

Correia is the likely replacement should Hyun-Jin Ryu (leg) not be able to make his next start early next week, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Correia fared well in his last start, so he could be a decent streaming option in deeper leagues should he get the nod next week.
