Post er-high losses this year. "He
NEW YORK -- Reliever Kyle Farnsworth has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Mets and will report to spring training as a non-roster player. The 37-year-old right-hander was 3-1 with two saves and a 4.70 ERA in 48 games last year with Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, which signed him in August after he was released by the Rays. His fastball averaged 95-98 mph early in the season, according to fansgraphs.com, then dropped to 92-96 mph later in the year. Farnsworth would get a $1 million, one-year contract if added to the 40-man roster and could earn $1.5 million in performance bonuses. He could make $500,000 based on games: $75,000 each for 40, 45, 50 and 55, and $100,000 apiece for 60 and 65. He also could earn $1 million based on games finished: $100,000 each for 30 and 35, $250,000 apiece for 40 and 45, and $300,000 for 50. Farnsworth has a 43-63 record with 54 saves and a 4.26 ERA and 945 strikeouts in 960 innings. Hes pitched for the Chicago Cubs (1999-04), Detroit (2005, 2008), Atlanta (2005, 2010), the New York Yankees (2006-08), Kansas City (2009-10), Tampa Bay (2011-13) and Pittsburgh (2013), and had a career-high 25 saves for the Rays in 2011.

Correia was told late Saturday after the Twins 9-4 loss at Oakland that he was headed home to Southern California to be part of a pennant race in the familiar NL West. Minnesota will call up left-hander Tommy Milone from Triple-A Rochester to start Monday at Houston. Milone was acquired from the Athletics on the July 31 trade deadline after he requested to be moved following a demotion to the minors. Minnesota sent outfielder Sam Fuld back to Oakland in the swap. A fourth-round draft pick by San Francisco in 2002, Correia (5-13, 4.94 ERA) has pitched for the Giants and San Diego Padres. "Its nice to be able to go somewhere and play some important baseball games at the end of this year and its a place Im very familiar with, so its exciting," Correia said after saying his goodbyes to Twins teammates at his locker. "Its why we play this game. "Im getting toward the end of my career and you want to play in some meaningful games and Ill have the opportunity to do that over there." The NL West-leading Dodgers, who lost earlier Saturday at Milwaukee, were looking to boost the back end of their rotation. This past week, they acquired veteran right-hander Roberto Hernandez from the Phillies to fill Josh Becketts spot. Beckett went on the 15-day disabled list for the third time this season Friday. Beckett, who is 6-6 with a 2.88 ERA in 20 starts for the Dodgers this season, has a left hip impingement. The move is retroactive to Aug. 4. He is expected to be out about two weeks.dddddddddddd The 14-year veteran made three starts since being reinstated on July 22 from the same injury, which occurred on July 8. His first time on the disabled list was March 22 when he had a right-thumb contusion. Correia has ties to general manager Ned Colletti, the former Giants assistant GM, and medical director Stan Conte. "Its a division Im familiar with and theres a couple of familiar faces from when I was with the Giants: Ned Colletti and Stan Conte, the trainer," Correia said. "So its not going to be a completely foreign situation for me and I think thatll help." Twins manager Ron Gardenhire praised Correia for his work with the club over two seasons in spite of his struggles with a career-high losses this year. "Hes been nothing but a pleasure. Last year he was our best pitcher, most consistent pitcher," Gardenhire said. "This year I know he had some ups and downs but he always seemed to give us a chance. A great guy in the clubhouse. ... Its a good situation. Hes going to a team in the pennant race. He deserves it." Milone went 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA over 11 starts with the As when he was sent down July 5 following the trade for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs. The 27-year-old Milone made one start at Triple-A on Aug. 5, allowing one run on six hits in seven innings. "We are really excited to get him. We didnt want to give up Sammy Fuld," Gardenhire said. "We got a nice pitcher out of the deal, a guy that knows how to pitch in the big leagues, good track record. Were going to get him up here. ... Weve made a spot now, and hes going to get the ball."
