Kevin Correia SP MIN 6 Days

Kevin Correia allowed three runs over seven-plus innings in taking a no-decision against the Royals on Sunday.

Correia was strong for most of the day, throwing seven shutout innings before allowing three runs without recording an out in the eighth. The big inning blew his chance of picking up his first win of the year, and he'll continue to search for it in a rematch with the Royals next weekend.

Kevin Correia was lit up for six runs over 5 2/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Athletics.

He yielded nine hits -- including a home run -- while walking two and striking out three. Correia posted a quality start last week in Chicago, but as rarely as he misses bats he's going to be vulnerable when his stuff isn't spot-on. The veteran right-hander will try to get back on track this weekend against the Royals.

Kevin Correia yielded four runs and seven hits in three innings versus Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Pedro Alvarez hit a two-run homer off him. If the Twins had succeeded in their bid for Ervin Santana, they could have made Correia available in trade talks. As is, it looks like he'll be back in their rotation as the third or fourth starter. He's a poor bet in AL-only leagues.

Kevin Correia allowed just one run over seven innings but the Twins fell to the Tigers on Wednesday.

Correia got zero support from the Minnesota offense, which was foiled all night by Detroit starter Max Scherzer. Correia struck out one and walked none. He'll finish the 2013 regular season with a 9-13 record, 4.18 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 101/45 K/BB ratio in 185 1/3 innings. The 33-year-old right-hander is under contract with the Twins for $5.5 million in 2014.

Kevin Correia yielded two runs over five innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Athletics.

Correia allowed six hits and five walks while throwing just 53 out of 101 pitches for strikes, so things could have been much worse. It was his shortest start since August 5. He'll bring a 4.29 ERA into a tough matchup against the Tigers next week. Don't trust him as a fantasy option.

Kevin Correia delivered a quality start in Friday's loss to the Rays, allowing three runs on eight hits over his six-plus frames.

Correia racked up five strikeouts on the evening while issuing just one free pass. The Rays never mounted a serious rally against him, instead striking for single runs in the second, third and seventh innings. While he hasn't been tremendous, Correia has at least logged some quality innings for the Twins this season, registering a 4.31 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 99/40 K/BB ratio over 173 1/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.

Correia has gotten stronger as the season has progressed, too -- he's now thrown at least 6 2/3 innings in each of his last four starts, allowing just six earned runs in those 28 innings. He's got a very tough matchup looming against the Rangers in Arlington on Sunday.

Kevin Correia allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings to suffer the loss against the Tigers on Wednesday.

It was a particularly painful way for Correia to lose, as he got Prince Fielder to swing at strike three to end the inning but the ball got away from catcher Ryan Doumit, allowing a run to score and letting Fielder to take first base. The next batter, Victor Martinez, doubled in another run, ending Correia's otherwise decent night. Alas, Correia fell to 8-10 and owns a 4.52 ERA heading into his Tuesday start against the Royals.
