Correia was crushed by the Braves on Saturday. He allowed nine runs on 10 hits over 3.1 innings.

Correia has yet to get through six innings in his five starts since joining the Phillies. He is 0-3 with a 6.56 ERA and a 14:8 K:BB ratio in 23.1 innings.

Correia was charged with three runs (one earned) in 5.1 innings Sunday against the Nationals in Game 1 of a doubleheader, giving up seven hits and three walks while striking four.

He had struggled in his last two starts, and while Sunday's performance was by no means spectacular and he did take the loss, Correia at least held his own. The 34-year-old was undone by poor defense from outfielder Jeff Francoeur in the fifth inning, who misplayed a line drive that ultimately led to the Nationals' first run. It's uncertain if Correia will stick in the rotation upon Chad Billingsley's return from the DL.

Correia will start Game 1 of Sunday's double-header against the Nationals, Stephen Gross of The Morning Call reports.

Philadelphia won't push back Correia's start as a result of Saturday's rainout, so he'll still be on the mound Sunday against the Nationals. He'll be going against Stephen Strasburg in the opening game of the double header, marking his first start against Washington this season. Correia was touched up by the Yankees in his last outing, allowing five earned runs on eight hits through four innings of work.

Correia allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk over four innings in a no decision Monday against the Yankees.

The Phillies put up a rare 11-spot up behind him, but Correia couldn't last long enough to earn the decision. He drew just two swinging strikes in 78 pitches and struck out just one batter. He has a 4.30 ERA in three starts and has allowed 20 hits in 14.2 innings.

Correia gave up two earned runs on seven hits across five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Correia gave up six runs, but only two were earned runs as he walked one batter and struckout four. Correia is now 0-1 on the season with a 1.69 ERA. He'll look to get back on track in Ney York against the Yankees in his next start.

Correia tossed 5.2 shutout innings, allowing five hits, walking one, and striking out four, but came away with a no-decision against the Pirates on Friday night.

Just signed earlier this week, it was quite a first outing for the veteran, however both the Pirates and his team failed to put up a tally until Pittsburgh scored in the bottom of the 13th inning. Despite the initial success, it should be remembered that Correia compiled a 7-17 record with a 5.44 ERA between the Twins and Dodgers last season, so it might be prudent to see how his next start or two goes before hitting the waiver wire.

Correia is expected to start Friday against the Pirates, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Correia signed with the Phillies on Monday, and it won't take long for him to see a start on the mound, facing his former team. In six starts with Triple-A Sacramento, the 34-year-old hurler posted a 3.58 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 25 strikeouts in 37.2 innings before being released by the Giants on May 30 and subsequently picked up by the Phillies.

Correia signed a major league deal with the Phillies on Monday. He's expected to join the team for their series against the Reds.

Although it's not certain, it appears that Correia will begin his tenure with the Phillies by replacing Severino Gonzalez in the starting rotation. Correia posted a 3.58 ERA in 37.2 innings with Triple-A Sacramento this season, but he holds a 4.91 career ERA and was dismal last season for the Twins and Dodgers, going 7-17 with a 5.44 ERA in 154 innings. His fantasy value figures to be minimal.

Correia was released from his contract, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Correia has played in six games with a 3.58 ERA for Triple-A Sacramento. He had a player opt-out clause in his contract that could have come into play in Monday, June 1.
