LOS ANGELES -- Former Dodgers pitcher Kevin Correia has found a new home, signing a minor league contract with the Mariners, including an invitation to big league camp in spring training, per Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times.

Correia, 34, was acquired from the Twins for cash on Aug. 9, but his main contribution to the Dodgers was making sure everyone missed Paul Maholm. Thrust into the swing man role with Los Angeles, Correia allowed 28 runs and 42 baserunners in 24⅔ innings over nine games, including three starts.

Overall Correia was 7-17 with a 5.44 ERA and a 4.67 FIP in 32 games in 2014, including 26 starts, with 79 strikeouts and 40 walks in 154 innings.

Of all the Dodgers free agents, all but two have signed minor league deals for 2015, with only Brian Wilson remaining on the market. The Dodgers are on the hook for Wilson's $10 million salary this year, so any team that signs him to a major league deal would only be on the hook for the major league minimum of $507,500, or a pro-rated share thereof.
