OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Minnesota Twins have traded veteran right-hander Kevin Correia to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named or cash.

Correia was told late Saturday after the Twins' 9-4 loss at Oakland that he was headed home to Southern California to be part of a pennant race in the familiar NL West.

Minnesota will call up left-hander Tommy Milone from Triple-A Rochester to start Monday at Houston. Milone was acquired from the Athletics on the July 31 trade deadline after he requested to be moved following a demotion to the minors.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire praised Correia (5-13) for his work with the club over two seasons in spite of his struggles with a career-high losses this year.

Milone went 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA over 11 starts with the A's when he was sent down July 5 following the trade for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs.
