  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Sloppy in save

    Kittredge allowed two runs on four hits and struck out two in one inning to earn the save in Friday's 4-3 win over the Yankees.

    Kittredge ran into trouble in the ninth inning, but he was able to make a three-run lead hold. The right-hander has been a bit shaky lately, allowing seven runs (six earned) in his last 9.2 innings. He's collected eight saves and seven holds while logging a 1.88 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 77:15 K:BB in 71.2 innings overall as a high-leverage arm for the Rays.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Returns from injured list

    Kittredge (neck) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Kittredge wound up missing the minimum 10 days with neck tightness, an injury which never sounded particularly severe. The Rays were able to rest one of their best relievers as they coast into the playoffs, and he'll now get the chance to stay fresh with an appearance or two in the final week of the season as the team prepares for more important games on the horizon.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Stiffness 'pretty much gone'

    Kittredge (neck) threw a bullpen session Saturday and manager Kevin Cash noted afterwards that the reliever's stiffness was "pretty much gone," the team's official site reports.

    The right-hander was put on the injured list retroactive to Sept. 18 as a largely precautionary measure, as the Rays were intent on not having him pitch through any discomfort and worsen a relatively minor issue. That strategy seems to be paying off as the season enters its final week, and it appears Kittredge, who's posted an excellent 1.55 ERA over 54 appearances, will be at full health for the postseason. Expect Tampa Bay to activate Kittredge from the injured list within the next couple of days.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Makes progress Wednesday

    Kittredge (neck) threw from 60 feet off flat ground Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

    The veteran reliever is hoping to spend a minimal amount of time on the injured list with the neck tightness that landed him there, and Wednesday's activity level was encouraging in that regard. Kittredge is eligible to return as early as Monday, and if he's able to continue upping his activity level without setbacks over the next few days, he could have a good chance of a minimum stay on the shelf.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Out with neck tightness

    Kittredge landed on the 10-day injured list with neck tightness Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The initial diagnosis doesn't sound too severe, so this could simply be the Rays looking to give one of their best relievers a bit of rest as they coast to the finish, trusting that their 6.5-game division lead should be more than enough with two weeks left to play. Kittredge has been excellent this season, and while his 1.55 ERA isn't quite backed up by his 2.93 FIP and 3.08 xFIP, his combination of a 27.5 percent strikeout rate, 5.6 percent walk rate and 54.0 percent groundball rate makes him a very reliable option. He hasn't pitched since Friday, so the Rays can backdate his assignment by two days, leaving him eligible to return Sept. 28 for the final two series of the season.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Grabs ninth win

    Kittredge (9-3) was credited with the win in an extra-inning victory over the Tigers on Friday, firing a perfect 10th inning during which he recorded a strikeout.

    Kittredge preserved a 4-4 tie with an ultra-efficient frame in which he got seven of his nine pitches into the strike zone. He was then rewarded with the victory courtesy of Brett Phillips' game-winning three-run home run in the home half of the 10th. The veteran right-hander's season win total is easily a career best, and the fact he's been able to combine it with seven saves, six holds, a 1.55 ERA and 0.90 WHIP has made him a fantasy goldmine as far as non-full-time closers go.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Secures save Tuesday

    Kittredge tossed a perfect ninth inning on his way to securing a save versus the Blue Jays on Monday.

    The 31-year-old was called upon to protect a 2-0 lead and registered three consecutive outs to grab his seventh save of the year. After two consecutive shaky outings including a blown save, Tuesday's performance was a welcomed one for the right-hander.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: More hittable than usual of late

    Kittredge, who allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over two innings in an extra-innings loss to the Tigers on Sunday, has pitched to a 5.79 ERA over the 4.2 innings covering his last four appearances.

    Kittredge has allowed an earned run in three of those outings, along with seven hits overall. That's a lot more contact than Kittredge, who still boasts an impressive 0.93 WHIP for the season, typically surrenders. However, given his overall body of work this season (8-3, 1.60 ERA, 9.7 K/9), the veteran right-hander is still slated to see plenty of high-leverage work for what remains of the regular season.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Slams door for sixth save

    Kittredge struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning and earned a save over the Twins on Friday.

    Kittredge allowed one Twin to reach base via error but still needed only nine pitches to finish off the 5-3 win. He's been dominant of late, recording a save in each of his last four outings while allowing just one hit and striking out 10 batters through 5.2 innings. Kittredge has converted all six of his save chances this season and is now sporting a 1.29 ERA.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Locks down save No. 5

    Kittredge struck out two and did not issue a hit or a walk over two-thirds of an inning as he picked up the save in an 8-5 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Kittredge wasn't needed immediately heading into the ninth with the Rays comfortably leading 8-3, but things changed quickly after Dietrich Enns allowed four straight hitters to reach and two to score before with one out. Kittredge was called upon to prevent any further damage and fanned the only two batters he faced. The Rays haven't gone with a set closer all year long, but Kittredge has been excellent with a 1.31 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 69:14 K:BB over 62 innings and figures to continue in the mix for high-leverage opportunities.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Slams door on Baltimore

    Kittredge earned a two-inning save Saturday against the Orioles, striking out a pair without allowing a baserunner.

    The 31-year-old came on in the bottom of the eighth inning and recorded the final six outs of the night to earn his fourth save of the season, and his second in his last two appearances. Kittredge has allowed just one run in his last 13 outings, lowering his already-microscopic ERA and WHIP to 1.32 and 0.90, respectively. He's 8-2 in 46 appearances on the year with a 67:14 K:BB over 61.1 innings.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Grabs eighth victory

    Kittredge (8-1) was credited with the win Tuesday against the Red Sox, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and struck out five.

    The veteran right-hander was exceedingly sharp, throwing 26 of 29 pitches for strikes. Kittredge was rewarded for his efforts with his eighth win courtesy of Francisco Mejia's go-ahead ninth-inning single, and he's now posted eight straight scoreless appearances during which he's generated a 2-0 record, 0.93 WHIP and 15:3 K:BB across 9.2 frames.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Standing out in second half

    Kittredge, who now sports a 7-1 record after earning the win Saturday against the Red Sox, has generated six consecutive scoreless efforts and owns a 1.08 ERA and 9.7 K/9 in the 8.1 innings covering his seven post-All-Star-break appearances.

    The veteran reliever's career-best season, which included his first All-Star nomination, continues rolling along without a hitch as the last two months-plus of the regular season begin. Kittredge's seven wins are already a personal best by a comfortable margin, as are his 1.40 ERA and 0.90 WHIP. The 31-year-old boasts a diverse fantasy profile that also includes five holds and two saves, and with Diego Castillo now in Seattle, it's conceivable Kittredge even sees some save opportunities down the stretch.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Two impressive innings

    Kittredge fired two scoreless innings during which he allowed a hit and a walk in a win over Cleveland on Friday.

    The first-time All-Star has mostly picked up right where he left off prior to the Midsummer Classic, as Kittredge has now fired four innings of one-run ball over his first three second-half appearances. The right-hander hasn't qualified for any decisions during that brief span, but with six victories and four holds on the season, he's proven an asset to fantasy managers.

  • Rays' Andrew Kittredge: Nabs win in relief

    Kittredge (6-1) picked up the win in Friday's 7-1 victory over the Blue Jays, striking out two over two perfect innings of relief.

    The right-hander replaced Shane McClanahan to begin the fifth inning with the Rays ahead 3-1, and Kittredge was credited with his first win since May 22 after an impressive performance. He's been scored upon only once in his last 11 appearances, and Kittredge sports a 1.47 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 43:10 K:BB through 43 innings on the season with two saves and four holds in addition to his vultured wins.
