ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Twins are close to a two-year deal with right-hander Kevin Correia.

The 32-year-old right-hander posted an uninspiring 4.21 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 171 innings this past summer for the Pirates but should get a nice boost in fantasy value in making the move to the pitcher-friendly confines of Target Field. Correia also drew free agent interest this offseason from the Rockies, Orioles, Brewers, Royals and at least one team from Japan.
