Sherriff (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Sherriff spent most of the 2018 season with the Cardinals but was cut loose at the end of summer after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June. It's unclear when -- or if -- the southpaw will return in 2019. Sherriff owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB across 20 career big-league innings (parts of two seasons).
Sherriff (elbow) was released by the Cardinals on Sunday.
Sherriff underwent Tommy John surgery in early June, but the Cardinals needed to create space on the 40-man roster for the return of Dominic Leone (biceps) from the 60-day disabled list, prompting the move. Sherriff will be unable to pitch at least through the first half of the 2019 season as he enters free agency at an unfortunate juncture.
Sherriff (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Sherriff was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Memphis on May 18 with an apparent elbow injury. He will now miss the remainder of the 2018 season and a good portion of the 2019 season as well. He held a 6.35 ERA over 5.2 innings of relief with the Cardinals before being optioned May 8.
Sherriff was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
Sherriff has allowed four runs in 5.2 innings for the Cardinals so far this season, striking out three batters while walking two and allowing eight hits. John Brebbia was called up to take his place in the bullpen.
Sherriff (toe) allowed an earned run on two hits over two innings in an extra-inning win over the Cubs on Saturday. He also recorded a strikeout.
Making his first appearance since April 5, Sherriff worked his longest outing of the season and experienced only one hiccup, a solo home run he allowed to Javier Baez. The 27-year-old southpaw encouragingly worked up to 26 pitches without any apparent setbacks and should be available without restrictions moving forward.
Sherriff (toe) was activated from the 10-dayd disabled list Friday.
The southpaw will return to the Cardinals' bullpen after missing just under a month of action. Sherriff will resume his normal role as a middle reliever for St. Louis. Austin Gomber was optioned to Triple-A to make room for him on the active roster.
Sherriff, who allowed two earned runs on four hits over an inning in Triple-A Memphis' 5-4 win over Oklahoma City on Tuesday, shed the shank that had been protecting his broken left toe in what was his third rehab appearance, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
It was an encouraging sign of progress physically, even as Sherriff's pitching was less than stellar. The 27-year-old has been able to log three appearances of an inning apiece over the last five days, certainly leaving him close to activation. However, since he just shed his protection Tuesday, it's possible Sherriff makes at least one more rehab appearance with the Redbirds.
Sherriff (toe) will throw batting practice at Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday and will officially begin his rehab assignment with the Redbirds on Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com.
Sherriff's right toe fracture appears to be almost fully healed, as general manager Michael Girsch has deemed him as "relatively close to being ready to go." The 27-year-old southpaw will need to be able to throw multiple innings and pitch on back-to-back days before being considered big-league ready, according to Girsch.
Sherriff (toe) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and then play in a couple rehab contests with Triple-A Memphis, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Sherriff will likely need longer than 10 days after being placed on the disabled list last weekend due to a fractured toe. The reliever will sport a piece a metal under the sole of his right shoe in order to protect the toe during his rehab assignment. Over the course of three appearances with the Cardinals this season, Sherriff has logged a 3.38 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.
Sherriff was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured toe Sunday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Sherriff suffered the toe fracture when he was hit by a comebacker on his foot during Friday's game against the Diamondbacks. An exact timeline for his return has not been established, so it's unclear if he'll be able to rejoin the roster following his required 10 days on the DL. John Brebbia was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to fill Sherriff's spot in the bullpen.
X-rays on Sherriff's big toe revealed a hairline fracture Sunday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Sherriff suffered the toe fracture after being drilled by a comebacker on his foot during Friday's contest. The emergence of a fracture likely indicates a move to the disabled list for 27-year-old. John Brebbia will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis to join the bullpen in his absence, though it's currently unclear how long Sherriff will be sidelined for.
Sherriff (toe) may not be available for Saturday's game against Arizona after being struck by a comebacker Thursday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Sherriff remains fairly sore after being drilled on his big toe, though he said that he will try to be available for Saturday's contest. Through three appearances this year, the reliever has allowed one earned run off two hits and two walks while striking out one over 2.2 innings.
Sherriff earned his first hold of the season by firing 1.2 scoreless innings in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Brewers, allowing a walk and recording a strikeout.
Sherriff followed up an impressive nine-strikeout, five-inning effort by starter Jack Flaherty by getting six outs on an efficient 24 pitches. The 27-year-old is likely to shuttle some between Triple-A Memphis and the big-league club this season, but his current stint is expected to at least last through Brett Cecil's stay on the disabled list due to a shoulder injury.
Sherriff was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
In a corresponding move, the club placed reliever Brett Cecil (shoulder) on the 10-day disabled list. Sherriff appeared in 13 big-league games in 2017, posting a 3.14 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 15 strikeouts in 14.1 innings. He will likely be deployed in low-leverage situations out of the bullpen.
Sherriff was moved from the Cardinals' spring training to minor-league camp Sunday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Sherriff was a liability on the mound this spring, as he allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over seven games (six innings). Although he's in line to start the year at Triple-A Memphis, Sherriff could be brought up to the big club if the Cardinals' bullpen needs another southpaw. Sherriff tossed 14.1 innings over 13 games for St. Louis last season, throwing to the tune of a 3.14 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in that brief time.
Sherriff surrendered three earned runs on three hits over two-thirds of an inning in Wednesday's 6-0 loss to the Reds.
Sherriff had yet to run into any serious trouble over his first six major-league outings, as he'd yielded just an earned run over his first 7.2 innings. However, he gave up a grand slam to Eugenio Suarez in Wednesday's appearance, with three of the four runs going on his ledger. The stumble caused Sherriff's ERA to balloon from 1.17 to 4.32, and his September figure to jump up to 9.00 in the process.
