Twins-Miami series preview

  • Updated: June 24, 2013 - 11:47 PM


Tuesday, 6:10 p.m. • FSN, 96.3-FM

RHP Kevin Correia (6-4, 3.87 ERA) vs. RHP Jose Fernandez (4-4, 3.05)

Wednesday, 11:40 p.m. • FSN, 96.3-FM

LHP Scott Diamond (5-6, 5.27) vs. RHP Tom Koehler (1-5, 4.65)



This is the Twins’ second trip to Miami. They took two of three games in June 2007, when Justin Morneau had to spend a night in the hospital because of a bruised lung suffered in a home-plate collision with catcher Miguel Olivo. … Correia has given up 15 home runs this season and is well on the way to passing his single-season high of 24, given up in 2011. But his walks per nine innings (1.3) is well below anything he’s done in his career. … Lefthander Caleb Theilbar has handled the situations he’s been given very well, beginning his career with 13⅔ scoreless innings. … This is the Twins’ final interleague series of the season, although they also have a makeup game with the Mets on Aug. 19.


Jose Fernandez made just 11 starts in Class A last season, but Miami had him on the Opening Day roster. And the 20-year old has held his own, thanks to a powerful fastball and major curveball. This month, he is 2-1 with a 1.65 ERA with eight walks and 29 strikeouts in 27⅓ innings. … Kevin Slowey made the Marlins rotation out of camp and was 2-1 with a 1.81 ERA on May 5. That’s when his season went haywire, and the former Twins righthander was recently sent to the bullpen. … Koehler is making his first appearance ever against the Twins. He played at Stony Brook University, the same school that produced Joe Nathan.
