The Dodgers acquired former All-Star right-hander Kevin Correia from the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night for a player to be named or cash. Correia, 33, is 5-13 with a 4.94 ERA in 23 starts this season. He has spent parts of 12 years in the Major Leagues, the last seven almost exclusively as a starter. General manager Ned Colletti said he was looking for a swing man to replace Paul Maholm, who is out for the year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Earlier in the week, the Dodgers acquired right-handed starter Roberto Hernandez from Philadelphia for two players to be named or cash. He replaced Josh Beckett, who is out indefinitely with a left hip impingement.
