Kyle McPherson and Justin Wilson to Join the Team; Correia Could Start

I just spoke with Kristy Robinson, who is on the road traveling to West Virginia for minor league coverage. According to her sources, Kyle McPherson and Justin Wilson are both joining the team today in San Diego. Kristy also mentioned that no starter had been announced, but that Kevin Correia could get the start.

Correia pitched two innings last night, so he wouldn’t be able to go deep in to the game. McPherson or Wilson could pick up those innings, if the club decided to go with Correia, per Kristy’s sources.

More information as it becomes available.

    Staring Correia would be ridiculous, give one of the AAA kids the ball in a manner in which they are used to performing. Don’t jerk them around any more than need be. Nevermind that both of these guys are likely better than Correia right now.

      I’d like to see anyone other than Correia

    I spoke with Kyle early this am and they were told Correia was going to start, doesn’t mean that they can’t change their minds before game time. Being that I know Kyle, I would much rather see him start than KC but that is definately a biased opinion :)
