The Los Angeles Dodgers today optioned right-handed pitcher Pedro Baez to Triple-A Albuquerque and activated right-hander Kevin Corriea, who was acquired on Saturday from Minnesota.
This season, Correia has gone 5-13 with a 4.94 ERA in 23 starts for Minnesota, including 13 quality starts and 16 starts of 6.0 or more innings. He has pitched well on the road this season, posting a 3.17 ERA (23 ER/65.1 IP) in 11 road starts. Correia, who will turn 34 on August 24, has won at least nine games while making 26 or more starts in each of the last five seasons since 2009.
Baez has pitched in four games for the Dodgers and has fired scoreless relief in his previous three outings, last appearing on Friday at Milwaukee.
