Nats release Cla Meredith


(3/11/2011) The Nationals released pitcher Cla Meredith on Friday, less than two weeks after he underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time.

Meredith has TJ surgery


(3/2/2011) Nationals RP Cla Meredith had Tommy John surgery on Wednesday, the second time in the last five months he has had an arm procedure. Meredith left Sunday's practice early with an injury to his right elbow. Manager Jim Riggleman dismissed the idea that Meredith may have already had the injury when he was signed this offseason, saying, "I don't think there was any concern...It could be a wear-and-tear injury that's been going on for years, but when they did the bone chips, there was no reason to do anything more at that point, I assume." Meredith underwent surgery to remove bone chips in the same elbow last October.

Meredith going for more tests


(2/28/2011) Nationals RP Cla Meredith will have more tests in Washington after leaving Sunday's practice early with an injury to his right elbow. He underwent surgery to remove bone chips in the same elbow last October and could need surgery again. Manager Jim Riggleman hinted that Meredith might need Tommy John surgery.

Meredith waiting on MRI results


(2/27/2011) Washington RP Cla Meredith underwent an MRI on his right elbow, reports MLB.com on Sunday. Meredith will not receive the results of the MRI until Monday, when the Nationals' doctors arrive in Florida. Meredith believed his elbow to be feeling better until playing catch on Friday. He had bone chips removed from the elbow this last offseason. He is also dealing with back issues as well.

Meredith has another injury


(2/25/2011) The Washington Post reports that Nationals RP Cla Meredith, who dealt with some elbow pain last week, hurt his back fielding grounders on Friday. He is being listed as day to day.

Meredith gets good news


(2/19/2011) Washington RP Cla Meredith "more relieved today" after he underwent an MRI, reports CSNWashington.com. Meredith cut short a throwing session Friday. He walked off the field with a trainer, pointing to his surgically-repaired elbow. The MRI showed Saturday that there was no new damage to the elbow. He hopes he only bust through scar tissue when he threw a slider Friday.

Meredith stops throwing Friday


(2/18/2011) The Washington Post reports that Nationals RP Cla Meredith cut short a throwing session Friday. He walked off the field with a trainer, pointing to his elbow "I'm four months out of surgery," Meredith said. "That's all I'm going to comment on that."

Meredith moves on to D.C.


(2/2/2011) The Nationals signed RP Cla Meredith to a minor league deal with a spring training invite on Wednesday. The 27-year-old Meredith was 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in 21 games for Baltimore last season.

Meredith outrighted to minors


(6/30/2010) The Orioles outrighted reliever Cla C. Meredith to the minor leagues. He had been designated for assignment.

Meredith DFA'ed by Orioles


(6/22/2010) Orioles RP Cla C. Meredith, who was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on June 16, was designated for assignment on Tuesday. He has given up seven earned runs in 4 2/3 innings since arriving at Norfolk.

Meredith struggling in minors


(6/16/2010) Orioles RP Cla C. Meredith has an ERA of 17.18 in four games since being sent down to the minors.

Meredith sent down after loss


(5/28/2010) According to the MLB.com, the Orioles have optioned RP Cla C. Meredith to Triple-A Norfolk after their 5-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Friday and have called up top prospect Chris Tillman. "I've been in a rut before, I don't panic, but I'm not the one who calls shots around here," Meredith said. "I'm kind of at the mercy of my employer. I'm 26 years old, my arm's very healthy as is the rest of my body and I envision pitching for a long time whether it's here or somewhere else."Meredith was 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in 21 appearances this season.

Meredith candidate for save chances?


(5/26/2010) From The Sports Xchange notes: It is possible the presence of Alberto Castillo, a left-hander, could allow the club to slot effective lefty specialist Will Ohman into a ninth-inning role. Frank J. Mata closed at Norfolk, and David Hernandez has a power repertoire that eventually might lead to a late inning role. It is most likely Mata and Hernandez will work in the seventh and eighth innings initially. Ohman closed out Tuesday's win with two strikeouts in an efficient 15-pitch, 11-strike inning. If Ohman isn't named full-time closer, right-hander Cla C. Meredith could split save opportunities. In all likelihood, the club will get Gonzalez and Simon back in the second week of June, meaning the present closer's role might be a temporary gig.

Meredith due for bigger role?


(5/11/2010) From The Sports Xchange notes: RHP Cla C. Meredith hasn't allowed a hit in five appearances, spanning 4 1/3 innings. Meredith has a 2.00 ERA in 13 games, and after allowing two earned runs and four hits in his first two innings, has allowed just two hits in his last seven frames. Meredith could see an expanded role if RHP Koji Uehara is forced into the closer role.

Meredith gets first career save


(4/25/2010) Baltimore RP Cla C. Meredith needed 10 pitches to get the Orioles out of a monstrous jam in the 10th inning in Boston on Sunday. Jim R. Johnson gave up two runs in the 10th, and the Red Sox pulled to within 7-6 before Meredith got the final two outs. It was his first career save.

Johnson, Meredith favorites to close?


(4/14/2010) With the Orioles placing RP Mike Gonzalez (shoulder) on the 15-day DL, it looks like Jim R. Johnson and Cla C. Meredith are the leading candidates to take over closing duties while Gonzalez is out.

Meredith serving as a setup man?


(4/13/2010) From The Sports Xchange notes: Orioles RP Cla C. Meredith has stepped up as a late-inning reliever, being used in the eighth inning as RP Jim R. Johnson was unavailable last week. But Sunday, he allowed an insurance run when Edwin Encarnacion launched a towering home run on a pitch that was up. Meredith, with his submarine style, is prone to elevate pitches when he misses a spot, and with an upwards trajectory on some pitches, he can be prone to the long ball when he hangs a pitch.

Meredith on deck for closer spot?


(4/9/2010) Orioles closer Mike Gonzalez blew his second save in three chances in Friday's home opener against Toronto, leaving the field to a chorus of boos from the sellout crowd. He entered the game with a one-run lead in the ninth and promptly walked the leadoff batter. He then thew a wild pitch and gave up an RBI double to tie the game. A sacrifice moved the runner to third, after which Gonzalez allowed a sacrifice fly to give up the winning run. Cla Meredith came on to record the final out of the inning and received a strong round of applause as he left the mound.

O's re-sign Meredith, Albers


(12/12/2009) RPs Cla Meredith and Matt Albers agreed Saturday to one-year contracts with the Orioles. Meredith will make $850,000 under the deal announced ahead of the deadline to offer 2010 contracts to players on 40-man rosters. Albers received a split contract calling for $680,000 if he is in the majors and $275,000 if he is in the minors. Neither deal is guaranteed.

O's add Meredith, option Mickolio


(7/21/2009) The Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles have officially added RP Cla C. Meredith to the active roster and optioned RP Kam Mickolio to Triple-A Norfolk.

Meredith traded to Baltimore


(7/19/2009) Baltimore traded 1B/DH Oscar Salazar to San Diego for RP Cla C. Meredith on Sunday, reports MASNSports.com. Meredith, 26, is a submarine-stylist who was described by O's GM Andy MacPhail as a "poor man's Chad Bradford." "He gets a lot of ground balls and can pitch every other day," MacPhail said. "The ground ball ratio becomes more important later in the summer in our ballpark."

Meredith struggling of late


(7/13/2009) Padres RP Cla C. Meredith has not pitched since July 9 at San Francisco as San Diego heads into the All-Star break. Meredith last saw action against the Giants when he gave up three runs on four hits and a walk over an inning of work to raise his ERA from 3.63 to 4.29.

Meredtih gets inning of work in


(6/18/2009) San Diego RP Cla C. Meredith worked a scoreless inning in relief on Wednesday in a 4-3 loss to the Padres. He did not allow a hit or a walk in the inning as his ERA dropped to 2.70 on the season.

Gregerson taking Meredith's role?


(5/18/2009) From the The Sports Xchange: The ninth inning is not a problem for the Padres. It is the eighth inning that has Padres manager Bud Black searching for answers. When the season opened, Black planned to split the eighth inning between veteran Duaner Sanchez and side-winding Cla Meredith. But Sanchez was released May 15 with a 9.00 ERA after 12 appearances. And Meredith has allowed nine of the 10 runners he's inherited to score while allowing seven of the 16 first-hitters he's faced to reach base. So the setup role is there for the taking. Leading the list of candidates is rookie Luke Gregerson, who came to the Padres during spring training as the player to be named later in the trade that sent shortstop Khalil Greene to the Cardinals last winter. Although Gregerson, who turned 25 on May 14, is pitching above Double-A for the first time, he has shown signs of being suited to the role, especially at Petco Park.

Meredith gives up grand slam


(5/5/2009) Edwin Moreno (1-3) allowed a leadoff double Monday to Todd Helton in the Colorado seventh before walking Garrett Atkins. Brad Hawpe flied out but Troy Tulowitzki walked to load the bases. Cla Meredith replaced Moreno and grooved a 2-2 pitch that Chris Iannetta hit for his fifth home run. "I knew I hit it well," Iannetta said. "I knew at the very least it was going to be a sacrifice [fly]."
