Kittredge struck out three and allowed two hits and one walk over two scoreless innings in Friday's win over the Athletics.
The 29-year-old excelled as the opener and has given up just one earned run in 3.2 big-league innings this year. Jalen Beeks, the primary pitcher, allowed home runs in both of the next two innings, so it's impressive that Kittredge was able to limit the Athletics' production. The right-hander has been effective at recording strikeouts and limiting runs with Triple-A Toledo this season, so he could be a prime option to continue serving as an opener in 2019.
Kittredge will serve as the opener Friday at Oakland, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Kittredge had his contract selected from Triple-A Durham earlier this week and allowed one run over 1.2 innings during his season debut. The 29-year-old posted an impressive 1.93 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 55:6 K:BB through 37.1 innings with the Bulls prior to his promotion. Jalen Beeks is likely to follow as the primary pitcher.
Kittredge had his contract selected from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander is set to make his 2019 big-league debut following the demotion of Jake Faria. Kittridge has posted a 1.93 ERA and 0.81 WHIP with a 55:6 K:BB over 37.1 innings this season at Triple-A.
Contrary to a previous report, Kittredge's contract was not selected from Triple-A on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
They instead ended up summoning Hunter Wood, who is already on the 40-man roster. That said, Kittredge will probably join the big-league bullpen at some point this summer. He has a 1.93 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 37.1 innings (27 appearances) at Triple-A.
Kittredge is expected to have his contract selected from Triple-A Durham by the Rays on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Kittredge was removed from the 40-man roster this offseason and has responded with a 1.93 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and impressive 55:6 K:BB over 37.1 innings for the Bulls. The 29-year-old would likely fill a low-leverage role for the Rays, but he could also be utilized as an opener.

Kittredge will be in camp as a non-roster invitee after being outrighted from the team's 40-man roster in November. The right-hander appeared in 33 games for the Rays in 2018, posting a 7.75 ERA and 1.85 WHIP in 38.1 innings.

Kittredge (3-2) threw two scoreless innings and issued one walk while striking out one and was awarded the victory Sunday against Oakland.
Although Diego Castillo served as the opening pitcher, Kittredge came on in relief during the second inning and departed two frames later in a 2-0 ballgame. He's managed to nab two victories over the past two games, as he was called upon to record one out in Saturday's win. The 28-year-old right-hander sits near the middle of the pack within Tampa Bay's bullpen, so he figures to see mid-to-high-leverage opportunities in the final few weeks of the regular season.
Kittredge was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Kittredge will once again join the Rays to serve in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen. The 28-year-old has allowed 23 runs (22 earned) with a 16:11 K:BB across 24.2 innings at the major-league level this season.

Over 16 appearances with the Rays this year, Kittredge has "opened" three games and logged a 7.77 ERA and 1.82 WHIP with a pedestrian 15:10 K:BB across 22 innings. Look for him to be deployed in low-leverage situations, though he could be called upon to start a game or two should the Rays deem it necessary.
Kittredge was optioned to Triple-A Durham following Sunday's matchup against the Twins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
After getting called up to the big club July 11, Kittredge appeared in one outing, tossing 2.1 innings and surrendering one run on three hits and one walk while fanning two.

Kittredge was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Juan Toribio of The Athletic Tampa Bay reports.
He logged two scoreless innings while walking two and striking out one Sunday against the Mets, and the fact that he no longer qualifies as a fresh arm likely led to his demotion.

Kittredge will add extra depth to the Rays' bullpen while providing the ability to "open" a game for the club should it be required. He's appeared in 13 contests in the big leagues in 2018, posting an unsightly 9.72 ERA and 1.98 WHIP across 16.2 innings.
The Rays optioned Kittredge to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Kittredge's demotion comes shortly after he was pummeled for six runs on six hits and a walk while failing to record an out in his 24-pitch appearance during Sunday's 17-1 loss to the Orioles. Look for the Rays to bring a fresh reliever onto the 25-man roster ahead of Monday's series opener in Kansas City.
Kittredge fired a perfect eighth inning in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday, recording two strikeouts.
Four days after making a "bullpen day" start that lasted a quick two innings, Kittredge mowed through the potent trio of Ronald Acuna, Jr., Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis on an efficient 11 pitches, retiring the first two on swinging strikeouts. The right-hander has posted scoreless efforts in three of four May appearances, lowering his ERA from 7.36 to 5.63 in the process.
Kittredge started but did not factor into the decision in a win over the Blue Jays on Friday, allowing one earned run on two hits and a walk over two innings while also recording a strikeout.
The right-hander got the call to open Friday's "bullpen day" game, but he worked up to a robust 36 pitches over his pair of frames. Ryan Yarbrough ultimately bailed out manager Kevin Cash with five scoreless frames following Kittredge's exit. Kittredge was coming off back-to-back scoreless relief outings, and he's generated a solid 2.25 ERA over his first three May appearances.
Kittredge will start Friday's game against the Blue Jays, Mark Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.
This will mark the third start of the year for Kittredge as manager Kevin Cash has elected to go with another "bullpen day" during the series opener. During his last start -- which came against Boston on April 8 -- Kittredge allowed one run on two hits while striking out one over two innings of work. Since his longest outing of the year was just 3.1 innings against Boston in late March, it's unlikely that he will be able to last much longer than two or three innings after strictly serving as a reliever the past few weeks.
