Comments on: Kevin Correia On The Trade Block http://www.piratesprospects.com/2012/06/kevin-correia-on-the-trade-block.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

We can include a minor league RP like Tim Wood and get David DeJesus back; then the Cubs can energize their fan base by calling up Rizzo. DeJesus immediately becomes our 3rd best hitter.

There are thirteen “fifth” starters who have an xFIP higher than Correia’s. Two teams have two regular starting pitchers with an xFIP higher than Correia’s 4.89. But that leaves eighteen teams with a fifth starter who has a better xFIP than Correia.

Most fifth starters have an xFIP that is at least that high. But, with the Pirates, 4.89 might not be good enough to stay in the rotation.

Keep on running him out there, if he pitches well there will be a market for him. And who knows if Karstens is really ‘back’. He hasn’t shown it yet this year.

Good thing there are GMs out there that are out of their minds!
