Cardinals' Andrew Kittredge: Healthy, steady in spring
Kittredge has allowed one walk and struck out one over two scoreless and hitless innings in two Grapefruit League appearances.
Kittredge is looking to put the last two years behind him, as injuries have limited him to 31.2 innings in that span. He has 15 saves and 12 holds to his name over parts of seven major-league campaigns, but he's topped 50 innings just once. Kittredge figures to be in the high-leverage mix this season, though Ryan Helsley and Giovanny Gallegos are the top incumbent closing options for the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Andrew Kittredge: Agrees to terms
Kittredge agreed to a one-year, $2.63 million deal with the Cardinals on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
He was just traded to St. Louis from Tampa Bay last week in exchange for Richie Palacios, so naturally the two sides came to an agreement. Kittredge, who has been limited to 31.2 innings over the last two seasons due to injury, should work in a setup capacity for the Cardinals. He has 15 saves in 96 appearances over the past four seasons.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Andrew Kittredge: Dealt to St. Louis
The Rays traded Kittredge to the Cardinals on Friday in exchange for Richie Palacios, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Kittredge missed the first half of the 2023 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June 2022. Upon returning, picked up where he left off, surrendering four earned runs in 11.2 innings while striking out 10 batters and walking just two. The 33-year-old righty recorded two wins, a save and a hold in 14 appearances and will maintain a high-leverage role in St. Louis, providing a much-needed boost to a Cardinals bullpen that finished 13th in the NL last season with a 4.47 ERA....

Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Makes return from IL
Kittredge (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Kittredge has finally completed the long road back from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in June of 2022. The right-handed reliever's numbers during his rehab assignment weren't great, as he held a 5.40 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with a 9:3 K:BB over 13.1 innings. That means he'll likely be eased back into high-leverage spots, although his track record suggests he's certainly capable of being a big asset for the Rays' bullpen eventually if he can knock off the rust and regain his pre-surgery form....

The 33-year-old righty has collected 13 saves and seven holds since 2021, though he will likely have to be eased back into high-leverage situations as he gets reacclimated to the majors....

Kittredge (elbow) shifted his rehab assignment Tuesday to Triple-A Durham, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
