Kevin Siegrist has elected to become a free agent.
Siegrest came over from the Cardinals on waivers at the beginning of September. The southpaw was one of the best lefty relievers in baseball from 2013-2016, but struggled with St. Louis and the Phillies to a 4.98 ERA in 2017. Because of his previous success he should draw some interest, but is likely looking at a deal that will be incentive-laden. Oct 4 - 4:49 PM

Phillies claimed LHP Kevin Siegrist off of waivers from the Cardinals.

The 28-year-old left-hander has struggled to a 4.98 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 34 1/3 innings this season, but was a standout in the Cardinals' bullpen the previous four seasons. It's a nice low-risk move for the Phillies as he's capable of being a nice bullpen piece.

Cardinals activated LHP Kevin Siegrist from the 10-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

Siegrist had a sensational rookie season back in 2013 and he was good in both 2015 and 2016, but the 28-year-old left-hander stumbled to a 4.98 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 34 1/3 innings this season with St. Louis and he'd been sidelined for the last four weeks with a forearm injury. He'll get another shot with a new organization.

Jul 7 - 1:22 PM

Kevin Siegrist (neck) threw an aggressive bullpen session Wednesday without issue.

Siegrist declared himself game-ready after the workout and it sounds like he will be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

If he can avoid setbacks, he should be ready to return to the Cardinals' bullpen right after the All-Star break.

Mar 7 - 9:28 AM
