Kevin Correia expected to be granted release by the Giants
ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that pitcher Kevin Correia is expected to be granted his release by the Giants on Saturday. The two sides agreed to a minor league deal in early April, which included an opt-out date for June 1.
Correia, 34, has a 3.58 ERA with a 25/11 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings with Triple-A Sacramento. Despite the Giants’ misfortune with injuries within the starting rotation, Correia hasn’t been a consideration for a promotion.
When he is granted his release, Correia will attempt to latch on elsewhere as a free agent. The veteran of 12 seasons, who played for the Twins and Dodgers last year, has a career 4.59 ERA.
