BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Kevin Correia allowed 14 hits per nine in the majors last year, but on the bright side, he only had the third-highest mark in at least that many innings for the Phillies since 1947.
2015 Kevin Correia has pitched in 12 major-league seasons, made an All-Star team and thrown over 1,400 career innings, all as a replacement-level pitcher. Life, man.
2014 Last year analysts were uniformly dismissive when Minnesota signed Correia to bring his patented mix of ... hey, wait a minute. Correia doesn’t own the patent on soft-tossing junkballers with microscopic walk and strikeout rates, the Twins do! Perhaps the organization thought it would be cheaper to buy out the veteran righty than hire attorneys to sue him, which would at least provide some semblance of logic to the otherwise questionable decision for a rebuilding team to shell out $10 million over two years for a replacement-level starter. Correia was Correia last season, if not more so, and is just one randomly low BABIP away from earning another multiyear deal.
2013 In a surreal late-season moment, Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle informed the media that the Pirates had attempted to trade Correia at the deadline, but that 20 teams replied with variations of “No thanks.” Apparently nobody checked in with Minnesota, who proceeded to court Correia with great gusto and saw fit to reward him for having a right arm and being the pitching-to-contactiest guy around (his 4.6 SO9 ranks last among righty starters) with a two-year, $10 million contract. With a little hard work and a lot of luck, he just might fare better than Jason Marquis did last year in Target Field.
2012 Correia blew another good April to smithereens by pitching poorly after the calendar flipped to May. His earned-run average worsened in each sequential month and he forgot to pack his strikeouts when moving from San Diego, yet the community’s attention focused on Correia’s win-loss record and his questionable All-Star bid. The Pirates lineup did provide him with the most run support on staff, but he also managed a quality start in 11 of his 12 wins. Given a two-year deal, Correia can recover from an oblique injury that ended his season in August with the knowledge that his job is safe for now.
2011 It was a tough season for Correia: He started out strong in April, sustaining the success he had found with the Padres in 2009, but his younger brother's death in a hiking accident in mid-May coincided—understandably—with a drop in his performance. From June on Correia had a 5.95 ERA, 4.2 walks per nine, and an uncharacteristically high home run rate. There are reasons to be optimistic about his 2011 season: his 4.27 SIERA was solid and also tells us that he should be able to pitch to that level even if he continues to walk more batters than average, and his career high in strikeout rate despite major distractions was laudable, as was his continuing metamorphosis from a fly-ball pitcher into a ground-baller. That last point may not work out with the Pirates' infield defense behind him, but Correia's new deal demands that he brave Pittsburgh for two years regardless.
2010 Correia became the Padres' notional ace last season after Jake Peavy was injured (and later traded to the White Sox). Correia had bounced between the rotation and various relief roles while spending all or parts of six seasons with the Giants, but in the way any middling talent would welcome the chance to pitch in Petco, the San Diego native found a home with the Padres after signing as a free agent. He has always had a live arm with a hard sinker and cut fastball, but the biggest difference in 2009 was his doing a better job of throwing his changeup with command. He certainly isn't a true front man in a big-league rotation, but he fits in nicely as the voice of experience amongst a crew of much younger starters.
2009 After a solid start to the season, Correia strained an intercostal muscle on his left side six pitches into his fifth start and missed a month and a half. When he returned, it took him nine tries to turn in a quality start, and he was ultimately pulled from the rotation in September having posted a 5.66 ERA with a 1.41 K/BB ratio in 14 starts since his return from the DL. Dropped from the 40-man after the season, he has caught on with his hometown Padres as a non-roster invitee and could benefit from the Padres’ soft roster and big ballpark.
2008 Correia was effective out of the pen all of last year and, like Chulk, saw his role change as pitchers around him flailed and failed. Given a crack at the rotation in September, he showed well, with a 2.81 ERA, three quality starts, and four others that were short on length but not effectiveness. There's an important caveat that also applies to Cain's strong finish: the Giants ducked most of the league's good lineups down the stretch. Correia has a better than 2-to-1 K/BB over the last two seasons, and is certainly one of the 120 best starting pitchers in baseball. The Giants could do worse.
2007 Correia was demoted to Fresno out of spring training, but he was called up before the Triple-A season even started and never went back. The Giants used him in low-leverage situations last year--such as when the starting pitcher had been chased before the fourth inning and the team was looking at a 17-run deficit. The PA announcer saying, `Now pitching, Kevin Correia,` rapidly became a kind of folk code for, `If you head for your car now you might beat the traffic out of the parking lot.` The Giants were only 2-14 in games in which they used Correia in April and May, but, as he continued to pitch well, they started using him in more competitive games. Further development is unlikely.
2006 The organization tried to convert Correia into a reliever in Fresno so that he`d have a role on the 25-man roster, but that turned into a fiasco. When the starters started dropping like flies in mid-summer, Correia was brought up to the bigs and did what he does: pitch slightly better than replacement level. That`s not a bad thing to have hanging out in Triple-A for emergencies, but if you`re gunning for the postseason, you have to hope the emergencies are few and far between.
2005 The first player from the 2002 draft to reach the major leagues, due more to fluky circumstances than great ability or boffo results. Correia's a soft-tosser who can benefit from SBC Park's generous dimensions; he'd make a reasonable fifth starter. More likely he'll shuttle between Fresno and San Francisco for the next few years, until he's dealt or outrighted.
2004 If we had told you last off-season that Correia, a 2002 fourth-round draft pick with all of 37.2 Northwest League innings under his belt, would be in the Giants starting rotation by August, you would have laughed. After all, the Giants had tons of pitching prospects who were both better regarded and at more advanced levels than Correia?Boof Bonser, Noah Lowry, Jeff Clark, Ryan Hannaman, Francisco Liriano, and others. That Correia was the one who ended up getting the call says as much about the tough season the suffered by Giants' pitching prospects as it does about Correia. He's to be commended for responding well to being thrown into the fire, but there's little in his record so far that screams star potential.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Twins have the worst starting rotation in the AL?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
Man, maybe. It's bad. Dig up my Transaction Analysis on the Kevin Correia signing if you want to know what I think about that. (Spoiler: I didn't like it.) I might be writing about the Twins' pitching this week. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hopefully now that the Padres Pitching Plague is behind them, I feel a solid starter is a pressing need for the Padres. When Luebke returns back from the dead we should have Volquez, Luebke, Stultz, Richard, [body]. Whom do you think the Padres should throw in there? Personally, and I know this is a pipe dream, but I'm liking James Shields.
(Brandon from San Diego)
Hi Brandon, thanks for the question. I like Shields, too, but we're gonna need a bigger pipe. The tricky thing with the fences moving is that they can't just go get some random Kevin Correia type and hope it works. Clayton Richard led the NL in homers allowed last year despite calling Petco Park home. Some of the guys I mentioned above as being candidates for the Cardinals might be good fits in San Diego as well. Edwin Jackson wouldn't be a bad idea, but do the Padres have what it takes to sign him? I don't know. (Geoff Young)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you fall on the fence debate concerning Petco Park and do you think the Padres have done an adequate job in utilizing the park's spaciousness as an advantage?
(Venzor from North Park)
You could say I'm [removes shades] on the fence. But seriously, I think the team should be extremely careful in modifying the dimensions. The law of unintended consequences can be a cruel mistress. As for utilizing the park to their advantage, the Padres have been hit or miss. Having athletic outfielders like Maybin and Venable is good. Right-handed power hitters are useful if they aren't Ryan Ludwick. And the team has done a good job bringing in pitchers (Kevin Correia, Jon Garland, Aaron Harang) who look better than they are thanks to the park. Volquez could be another one of those. (Geoff Young)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chen, Francis, and Hochevar are the AL version of Hamels, Lee, and Halladay right? Just kidding... Can Francis and Hochevar combine for 22 wins and a sub 4.5 ERA though? Can anything good come from the Royals rotation?
(Nelly from Kansas)
Yes to the wins, but I don't think they will so far below a 4.5 combined ERA that it's worth celebrating. I thought it was very odd for Royals fans to mock the Pirates for signing Kevin Correia, when he would have been their second-best starter after Greinke left. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gorzelanny should have decent value to a small-mid mkt team at his price point, shouldn't he? That seems to be one decent chip the Cubs have.
(Matt from Chicago)
A team like the Pirates could use Gorzelanny, since he can actually miss bats and isn't too expensive. They really should see about getting him back if they can. Kevin Correia is their second-best pitcher after they signed him yesterday. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Does pitching in this cavernous space give our boys on the bump more confidence?
(Dan from PETCO)
Who cares!? I mean, if it can't be quantified, it doesn't mean anything! Kidding of course. I think it definitely helps their confidence, but confidence can only take you so far. Kevin Correia might be really confident but it doesn't mean the opposition pees their pants when he takes the mound. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tea! If you were a Padre fan, who went into this season expecting that the games wouldn't matter except in a development sense, only to find your team in first place and with peripherals to support it, what possible calamity would you fear MOST right now? Latos going sproing? Tejada playing everyday at shortstop, with hitters deliberately punching the ball his way? Kevin Correia staying in the rotation?
(Douglas Adams from Restaurant at the End of the Universe)
Man, if the Padres make it deeply into the playoffs, this would be one of the most amazing stories in baseball history. They came out of nowhere. They have little but pitching to offer. Yes, Tejada-the-shortstop scares me. The Padres lead the NL in defensive efficiency, and since they're not going to put too many runs on the boards, they really need every out they can get. I don't think that Tejada's bat at this stage of his career makes up for the sacrifice you're making with the glove. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Some love for KT and his young guys in San Diego? You saw them at 60 wins this year.
(JC from Hoboken)
Yeah, they've played better than I expected them to. They play the park well, finding relief pitchers who can be effective there. Chase Headley has started to come around, and Everth Cabrera isn't that bad. I'm just wondering how many guys responsible for the decent season are good enough to contribute to a real contender. Is Will Venable or Kevin Correia someone you build around? I doubt it. (Joe Sheehan)
