MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Minnesota Twins General Manager Terry Ryan continues to add pitching to the team's new-look roster.

Several national media outlets report the Twins have agreed to terms with pitcher Kevin Correia on a two-year contract worth $10 million.

The 32 year-old right-handed pitcher went 12-11 last season for the Pittsburgh Pirates with an earned run average of 4.21.

Correia began his Major Leage career with the San Francisco Giants in 2003. He's also spent time with the San Diego Padres and the Pirates.

Correia has won 60 games in his career, and has won at least 10 games each of the past four seasons.

Correia will join a re-tooled Twins starting rotation that includes Vance Worley, who was acquired last week in a trade that sent outfielder Ben Revere to the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Twins also landed highly-touted Minor League pitcher Trevor May in that trade, and earlier sent outfielder Ben Revere to Washington for pitching prospect Alex Meyer.
