SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Andres Torres is returning to the San Francisco Giants for the 2013 season after one year in New York. The 34-year-old outfielder hit .230 with three homers, 35 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 132 games for the Mets.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins are bringing Kevin Correia (kohr-AY'-uh) on board in hopes of bolstering a rotation that had the second-worst ERA in the majors last season. The 32-year-old right-hander was a respectable 12-11 with a 4.21 ERA for Pittsburgh this year.
