The Twins have traded starting pitcher Kevin Correia to the Dodgers for a player to be named later, the Twins announced after their game in Oakland Saturday evening. The move comes a few days after Roberto Hernandez to the staff in a trade from Philadelphia.

Correia, 33, is 5-13 with a 4.94 ERA (80 ERA+), 1.46 WHIP and 61 strikeouts against 32 walks in 129 1/3 innings this season.

With Josh Beckett -- and Paul Maholm, for that matter -- on the DL, this seems a depth move by the Dodgers and they'll obviously give up very little in return.

Also of note, Tommy Milone has been recalled by the Twins to take Correia's spot on the roster and in the rotation.
