Cardinals' Kevin Siegrist dealing with muscle tears in left hand
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/3/14) Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist underwent an MRI on his left arm, which revealed muscle tears in his hand and inflammation throughout the forearm, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Siegrist, who was left off the NLDS roster, is expected to rehab and work on strengthening his arm while his team takes on the Dodgers, in hopes of returning down the stretch in the postseason should the Cardinals make a deep run.
Siegrist was sidelined for approximately two months earlier in the season because of a similar issue. He went 0-1 with a 6.82 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP over 30 1/3 innings of relief this season.
"It explains why I had problems with command," he said.
Kevin Siegrist struggles again, takes loss Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist took a loss Tuesday, allowing one earned run on one hit and one walk in one inning while striking out one in his team's 3-2, 12-inning defeat against the Brewers.
Siegrist (1-4) has now surrendered at least one earned run in six of his last nine outings, with Tuesday's blemish coming on an RBI single in the 12th. His ERA has jumped from 3.86 to 6.30 since the end of July, and the reliever owns a 37:12 K:BB ratio in 30 innings.

Kevin Siegrist surrenders grand slam, takes loss Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(8/17/14) Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist was charged with a loss after serving up a grand slam in his team's 9-5 defeat against the Padres Saturday.
Siegrist (1-3) struck out the first batter of the seventh inning before loading the bases on two singles and a walk. The next batter he faced took him deep, and after retiring one more batter and issuing one more walk, he was removed from the game. Siegrist owns a 6.11 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 28 innings after giving up at least one run in four of his six August appearances.
|Though a starter for most of his minor-league career, Kevin Siegrist transitioned to the bullpen full time in 2013 and gave the Cardinals little incentive to transition him back. After reaching the majors in early June, he quietly emerged as one of the top left-handed relievers in the game, recording 11.3 strikeouts while surrendering just 3.9 hits per nine innings, best among pitchers with at least 35 innings. He was equally effective against lefties and righties, so he could emerge as a legitimate setup man this year. He won't be closing any time soon, but if he can come anywhere close to last year's ratios, he'll matter in Rotisserie leagues. Siegrist is already worth drafting in NL-only formats.
