Correia Scratched; Stauffer To Start

Kevin Correia has been scratched from his scheduled start due to the death of his younger brother. Tim Stauffer will start in his place–although Stauffer has shown he fits best in the bullpen. Correia will not go on the bereavement list for the time being; if he does, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Portland starter (Cesar Ramos, perhaps), making Correia’s next scheduled start.

Anyway, it’s obviously a tough time for Correia, and anytime someone as young as his brother passes away, it’s a real shock. I can’t imagine what he must be going through right now. My condolences and prayers to Kevin and his family.
