Kevin Correia released by the Mariners

The Mariners have released right hander Kevin Correia.

Correia just didn’t have a place in the M’s rotation given the presence of five dudes who are, well, better than Kevin Correia, and the 34-year-old was knocked around like crazy in three relief appearances since being signed earlier this month.

Two years ago the Twins gave Correia a two-year, $10 million deal and was awful in those two years. He was traded to the Dodgers late last season and posted an ugly 8.03 ERA in 25 innings.

Barring a team needing some cannon fodder after multiple injuries to starters, Correia may have reached the end of the line.
