PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — After acquiring starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez, the Pittsburgh Pirates moved Kevin Correia from the starting rotation to the bullpen.

Now Correia is longing for another move. He wants to be traded.

According to a report by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Correia said he wants to be traded so that he can continue to be a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball.

It appears he has little to no chance of starting for the Pirates for the remainder of this season.

“I want to start,” Correia said. “For that to happen, I’ll have to go someplace else.”

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said he’s open to trading Correia if it can improve the team. Correia appeared in Sunday’s game in relief of James McDonald. He pitched two innings and allowed four runs on five hits.
