Kevin Correia set to make Dodgers debut against Braves

Kevin Correia will make his Dodgers debut against the Atlanta Braves

As Manager Don Mattingly intimated the previous day, recently acquired right-hander Kevin Correia will start for the Dodgers when they open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves on Monday at Turner Field.

Correia was acquired Saturday night from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Correia was officially added to the Dodgers' 25-man roster on Monday. To create a place for him on the active roster, the Dodgers optioned right-hander Pedro Baez to triple-A Albuquerque.

Yasiel Puig will be back in the lineup. Puig didn’t play Sunday because Mattingly sensed he was fatigued.

Third baseman Juan Uribe will get a day off Monday. Justin Turner will start in his place.
