Phils call upon Correia to aid starting rotation

Philadelphia,  PA -- The  Philadelphia Phillies plucked veteran starter Kevin Correia from obscurity, signing him to a major-league contract on Monday.

The 34-year-old right-hander split last season between Minnesota and the Dodgers, combining to finish 7-17 with a 5.44 earned run average over 32 appearances (26 starts). He was 0-1 with a 3.58 ERA in six outings for Triple- A Sacramento this year.

Correia, who began his career in San Francisco in 2003, has accumulated a 76-95 mark and 4.59 ERA over 353 games (216 starts) for the Giants, Padres, Pirates, Twins and Dodgers in 12 MLB campaigns.

The club said Correia will head to Cincinnati and join his new teammates before the commencement of a three-game set at Great American Ball Park.
