Player News
  • Wittgren allowed a run on three hits and struck out one in 1.1 innings in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles. Through five appearances in May, Wittgren has allowed three runs in 5.1 innings. He allowed all of one run in April, so this is a discouraging downturn for the righty reliever. For the season, the 30-year-old has a 3.09 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB across 11.2 innings while picking up four holds.

  • Wittgren walked one batter in a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Friday's 4-2 win over the Reds. Wittgren has picked up three holds through six appearances this season. The right-hander has been effective in limited time, as he's only covered a full inning in three of his outings. He's yielded one run, five hits and two walks while striking out two in 4.1 innings. Wittgren amassed 31 holds over the last three years with Cleveland, and he appears to be reprising a similar role as part of the high-leverage bridge to closer Giovanny Gallegos.

  • Wittgren agreed to a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Cardinals on Sunday, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Wittgren elected free agency after being outrighted off Cleveland's 40-man roster in November, and he'll continue his career in St. Louis. The right-hander posted a 5.05 ERA over 62.1 frames during 2021 but had a 2.97 ERA over the previous three years, and the Cardinals will undoubtedly hope he can rediscover that form.

  • Wittgren elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A Columbus by Cleveland on Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Wittgren began the 2021 campaign as a potential closing option for Cleveland, but he quickly fell out of favor for high-leverage opportunities and posted a 5.05 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 61:17 K:BB over 62.1 innings. The right-hander had a 2.97 ERA in 112 appearances across the previous three seasons, so he should be able to latch on somewhere during the offseason.

  • Wittgren (2-9) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk in one inning, taking the loss versus Kansas City on Wednesday. Wittgren was responsible for Hunter Dozier's two-run triple, and the right-hander let him come across to score on a wild pitch. An uneven September has seen Wittgren post an 8.18 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in his last 11 innings. He has a 5.14 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 61:17 K:BB with one save and nine holds through 61.1 innings.
