The Twins have traded starter Kevin Correia to the Dodgers for a player to be named later, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. Left-hander Tommy Milone has been recalled from Triple-A Rochester to take Correia’s spot in the rotation.

Correia, 33, struggled in 23 starts with the Twins, leading the league in two categories a player doesn’t want to lead in with 13 losses. He has a 4.94 ERA and a 61/32 K/BB ratio over 129 1/3 innings.

The Dodgers, however, just lost Josh Beckett for the season and though they recently acquired Roberto Hernandez from the Phillies, they are still thin on starting pitching depth.

Kevin Correia is eligible for free agency after the season, when the two-year, $10 million deal he signed with the Twins in the 2012 offseason expires.

Milone was acquired from the A’s for outfielder Sam Fuld on the July 31 trade deadline. In his only start with Rochester, he allowed a run on six hits and a pair of walks while striking out three over seven innings.
