The Twins agreed to a deal with free agent starting pitcher Kevin Correia.

The Minnesota Twins bolstered their starting pitching depth on Monday agreeing to a two-year contract with free agent Kevin Correia, according to a report from ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

According to the report, the two-year deal is worth $10 million. Correia comes to Minnesota after spending the last two seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He started 28 games for the Pirates last season, finishing with a 4.21 ERA. The 32-year-old Correia has started 159 games over 10 MLB seasons.

In Minnesota, Correia will likely slot into the rotation behind Vance Worley and Scott Diamond. Correia's best season came in 2009 when he struck out 142 batters while posting a 3.91 ERA for San Diego. In addition to the Pirates and Padres, Correia also pitched for the San Francisco Giants.

The Twins entered the free agent period in search of multiple starting pitchers. With the addition of Correia and by acquiring Worley from Philadelphia, Minnesota has greatly improved its depth.
