Kevin Correia has multi-year offers on the table

Dec 6, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

Maybe it’s the lack of sleep I’ve gotten this week, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman seems to be implying that free agent right-hander Kevin Correia is a pretty popular guy right now.

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reported earlier today that the Royals are considering Correia along with Brett Myers and Jair Jurrjens, but the Twins and Orioles have also been mentioned as possible landing spots.

Correia, 32, posted a 4.21 ERA and 89/46 K/BB ratio over 171 innings this past season with the Pirates. He’ll likely latch on somewhere as a backend starter, as he throws strikes and induces his fair share of ground balls, but only five pitchers (min. 200 IP) have a lower strikeout percentage since the start of 2011.

    We could barely tell about the doobie… I’m shocked!

    I’m guessing you have a fine scotch pouring as well.

      Fine Scotch and a blunt of some ‘Magic Johnson’ will cause a post like that from time to time…I for one welcome it.

    Sadly I believe that Milwaukee is one of them with a 2 yr deal….god, I can see the bombs flying now. Ideally this guy takes his ‘talents’ to Japan and makes zero MLB fans suffer next season.
