Kevin Siegrist notched his fifth win in relief with a hitless eighth inning against the Giants on Wednesday.
It's not going to matter much when it comes to arbitration, but Siegrist has been every bit as good of a pitcher as teammate Trevor Rosenthal this season. He's given up nine earned runs and posted a 66/20 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings. Rosenthal has allowed nine earned runs with a 63/19 K/BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings. Aug 19 - 11:19 PM

Kevin Siegrist tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Braves on Friday for his fifth save of the season.

Siegrist worked around an infield single and a walk to finish off the win. Trevor Rosenthal got the night off after pitching in the previous three games, but he should be back in there Saturday if a save opportunity arises.

Pitching for a second straight day in place of Trevor Rosenthal, Kevin Siegrist tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Twins on Tuesday for his third save of the season.

Eduardo Nunez hit a one-out double which nearly left the ballpark and Eddie Rosario drew a two-out walk, but Siegrist was able to escape the jam to secure the Cardinals' fifth straight victory. Rosenthal was out again Tuesday due to arm soreness, so Siegrist is a must-stash in fantasy leagues until there's some more clarity on the situation.

With Trevor Rosenthal unavailable, Kevin Siegrist tossed a scoreless ninth inning Monday against the Twins to record his second save of the season.

Siegrist hit Torii Hunter with a pitch with two outs but then got Kurt Suzuki to line out to preserve the one-run lead. The Cardinals think Rosenthal is going to be OK, but he has tightness in his pitching arm so fantasy owners would be wise to scoop up Siegrist just in case. The southpaw has had a big bounce-back season, holding a 1.57 ERA and 39/10 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings.

Kevin Siegrist was credited with the first save of his career after tossing two scoreless innings Friday against the Reds.

The Cardinals won by five runs, but they had a three-run lead when Siegrist entered the game in the eighth inning, so he was eligible for the save. The southpaw struck out three in his two innings of work while allowing one hit, one walk, and hitting a batter. Saves are going to be few and far between for him, but he's capable of being a valuable piece in this bullpen if he can avoid the injuries he dealt with last year.

Kevin Siegrist (arm) threw an impressive round of live batting practice Wednesday in Cardinals camp.

"It feels good to be back and get into a groove here and just get ready for the season," Siegrist told reporters after the workout. He battled neck and forearm issues in 2014, winding up with a brutal 6.82 ERA in 30 1/3 innings. The hard-throwing southpaw registered a ridiculous 0.45 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 50 strikeouts across 39 2/3 innings in 2013.

Kevin Siegrist (arm) said Sunday that he has "a lot of confidence moving forward to spring training."

Siegrist was bothered by forearm and neck issues throughout the 2014 season and wound up posting an ugly 6.82 ERA in 30 1/3 innings. The hard-throwing left-hander was among the most effective relievers in baseball in 2013 and will try to get it all back in 2015. "I can tell right away that it’s definitely better and it’s probably 100 percent," Siegrist said Sunday about his health. "Just the way the ball comes out of my hand throwing long toss and stuff like that compared to last year."

Fox Sports' Jim Hayes reports that Kevin Siegrist was "feeling really good" after throwing from 60 feet this week.

Siegrist is in the process of rehabbing from various injuries to his throwing arm. The lefty is still a 25-year-old with talent, but the injury-marred 2014 campaign resulted in poor numbers, as he posted a 6.82 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 37 appearances.

An MRI Monday revealed muscle tears in Kevin Siegrist's left hand and inflammation throughout the forearm.

It's the same issue that he had earlier this season when he missed two months of action. "It explains why I had problems with command," he said. Siegrist will do rehab and strengthening and even plans to throw some during the NLDS in hopes of being available at some point this month if the Cardinals advance.

Kevin Siegrist won't be on the Cardinals' NLDS roster.

Siegrist struggled through forearm and shoulder issues throughout the 2014 campaign and wound up posting a rough 6.82 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 37 appearances. The hard-throwing 25-year-old lefty remains a promising talent, but he needs a full offseason rest.

Cardinals optioned LHP Kevin Siegrist to Triple-A Memphis.

Siegrist hasn't looked the same since returning from the disabled list last month, showing diminished velocity while posting a 12.38 ERA over nine appearances. The lefty allowed a grand slam in Saturday's loss to the Padres. He'll try to sort things out at Triple-A before returning next month.

Cardinals activated LHP Kevin Siegrist from the 15-day disabled list.

Siegrist has been out since late May with a forearm strain and more recently a nerve issue in his shoulder, but he made it through five rehab appearances with no issues and is ready to rejoin the Cards' bullpen. Nick Greenwood has been optioned in a corresponding move.
