Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist due back Friday

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 05:30:44 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist (illness) will be ready to return when eligible Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Siegrist has a 2.78 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP, but he hasn't been the same pitcher this year. His K/9 is down nearly one-and-a-half to 9.46. With Seung Hwan Oh looking to have captured the closer role, Siegrist remains a ratios guy in most formats that may see an occasional save chance.

Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist placed on DL

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 13:50:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist (illness) was placed on the disabled list with mononucleosis Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Through the past four seasons, Siegrist has proven to be a viable option in deep mixed leagues and has returned 16 wins and seven saves with a 2.69 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP and 10.7 K/9. However, the injury should keep Siegrist out long enough that he can be dropped in most cases. Seung-Hwan Oh projects to be the go-to closer for the immediate future with Siegrist out.

Cardinals | Seung-Hwan Oh the new closer?

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 10:14:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Seung-Hwan Oh was in line to serve as the closer Sunday, June 26, and Oh is expected to have the first shot at the ninth-inning role now, in the opinion of the St. Louis Dispatch's Derrick Goold. "I'd imagine he gets the first crack at closing. They'll look at matchups. It seems to be trending towards Oh getting the first crack… and if he does in the ninth what he's been doing in the eighth, it's hard to imagine (RPs Kevin Siegrist or Jonathan Broxton getting the save opportunities unless Oh falters)," Goold said.

Fantasy Tip: For now, Trevor Rosenthal will work in less stressful situations in middle relief. He still has the most strikeout upside, though, and should remain stashed in most formats. Oh should be your first target off the waiver wire if he's still available in your league.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal out as closer

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 18:54:24 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal is out as closer and will be used in a different role going forward, manager Mike Matheny said Saturday, June 25. RP Seung-Hwan Oh, RP Kevin Siegrist and RP Jonathan Broxton will all see save chances, according to Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Oh has been outstanding this year and is your best bet if you are hunting for saves. However, Siegrist and Broxton could also be worth speculative adds in what is likely to be a messy situation for fantasy owners to deal with.

Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist adding curveball

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:57:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist threw consecutive curveballs to strike out Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez Thursday, May 19. He had only thrown the pitch three times to that point in the season. Siegrist experimented with a curveball during spring training to add to his fastball-changeup mix.

"Loved it," manager Mike Matheny said of the sequence. "I don't know if the camera caught us over here, but I jumped up and yelled and whistled as soon as the first one happened. I was happy to see it. That should have been very affirming to him when he sees one of the best left-handed hitters in the league approach that like he did."

Fantasy Tip: Dating back to the beginning of last season, Siegrist has a 2.26 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 11 wins, seven saves and 115 strikeouts over 91 2/3 innings. Those numbers make him a viable option in deep mixed leagues, and adding another pitch to keep hitters off balance does nothing but increase the likelihood of him sustaining his dominance.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal shaky Thursday

Fri, 13 May 2016 07:42:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal walked the bases loaded on 14 pitches in a save situation and was removed from the game in favor of RP Kevin Siegrist against the Los Angeles Angles of Anaheim Thursday, May 12. Rosenthal was pitching on back-to-back days for the first time this year. "He's got good stuff and needs to trust it," manager Mike Matheny said of Rosenthal. "You're going to have those days and you're going to have to figure it out, or someone is going to have to bail you out, which is exactly what happened today."

Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal still has an elite strikeout rate, fanning 14.7 hitters per nine innings, but spotty control has always been his weakness. He's walking an alarming 7.4 hitters per nine this year. However, there remains plenty of rope for him in the ninth, and no change is in the immediate future. Continue trotting Rosenthal out there on a daily basis.

Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist adds new pitch

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 06:28:25 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist has added a curveball to his repertoire, which will replace his slider as his breaking pitch. Siegrist has sought tips from SPs Adam Wainwright and Tyler Lyons, and he plans to fine-tune the pitch in camp. "Waino told me to really focus on the shape of the pitch," Siegrist said. "That actually really helped me. Maybe that's why I never had a really good breaking pitch, because I never could understand the thought process of how you throw one. This year, with the grip I have, I don't really have to think about manipulating the ball. I can just throw it."

Fantasy Tip: Siegrist was one of the top non-closers in fantasy last season with seven wins, six saves, a 2.17 ERA and 90 K's in 74 2/3 innings. Adding a curveball to his fastball-changeup mix should only make him more difficult to hit, and he'll be a popular reliever in fantasy drafts again.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 14:40:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal was not unavailable in a save situation against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, Sept. 22, and neither was RP Jonathan Broxton. The Cardinals went with RP Kevin Siegrist to lock the game down in the eighth and RP Steve Cishek recorded the save. It was the 95th save of Cishek's career, and he became the sixth Cardinals reliever to record a save in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal has been one of the more consistent closers in the league this year. He has 47 saves, a 1.49 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Continue to run with Rosenthal as your closer to finish out the season.

Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist picks up save

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 18:53:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist threw a perfect ninth inning against the San Diego Padres Sunday, July 5, to pick up his fourth save in six chances. RP Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable to close after having appeared in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Siegrist has been impressive in a setup role, posting a 1.45 ERA and striking out 48 in 37 1/3 innings. He should already be owned in leagues that count holds as a category, and he is a must-add player in all formats if Rosenthal were to miss time for any reason.

Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist fills in again

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:48:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist filled in for RP Trevor Rosenthal (biceps) for the second time in two days Tuesday, June 16, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Siegrist is worth picking up as a handcuff for Rosenthal owners in NL-only fantasy leagues, or if Rosenthal should ever be forced to the 15-day disabled list.
