Kevin Correia, Jeff Francis on Rockies' radar, according to report

Doug Pensinger

After finishing with a 64-98 in 2012, the most losses in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies are looking for upgrades before the 2013 season. Two of the potential upgrades for the Rockies could be additions to the pitching rotation, as the team is interested in Kevin Correia and Jeff Francis, according to a report from Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

The pitching position was a particular struggle for the Rockies, as the team was the only one to finish the season with an ERA over 5.00.

Correia, 32, finished the 2012 season with a 12-11 record with the Pittsburgh Pirates, his fourth consecutive season with double-digit wins. He finished the season with a 4.21 ERA through 171 innings pitched.

Francis, 31, returned to the Rockies in 2012 after one season with the Kansas City Royals. He finished with a 6-7 record and 5.58, struggling with consistency, but could be a player that the Rockies bring back in 2013.
