According to Fangraphs.com, over the past two years Correia had the highest contact rate (80%) and the lowest swinging strike percentage (5.7%).
"I enjoyed every minute of it," Correia told reporters in the clubhouse after the game and being told the news. "The guys on the team, the coaching staff, everything was great. I wish we would have won more games, obviously. Besides that, I couldn't have enjoyed the time any more in Minnesota and this organization."
To fill Correia's roster spot, the Twins recall left-handed pitcher, Tommy Milone, who they received in the Sam Fuld trade with Oakland. Milone will start on Monday.
