Andrew Kittredge to have Tommy John surgery

Andrew Kittredge will undergo Tommy John surgery on his elbow. He will miss the remainder of the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

This is tough news for the 32-year-old reliever who was having a solid 2022 (3.15 ERA, 6.3 K/9) season after a breakout 2021 season (1.88 ERA, 9.67 K/9). This surgery will likely keep Kittredge out for most of the 2023 season as well. The Rays' bullpen is tough to navigate right now with JP Feyereisen recently hitting the IL as well. Jason Adam recorded a save on Thursday, so it would seem he will be in a position for more saves down the line.

Andrew Kittredge (elbow) likely headed for surgery

Andrew Kittredge is likely headed for surgery to have a loose body removed from his elbow and will be out at least a month, according to Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Impact

That escalated quickly, as Kittredge was just placed on the IL with elbow soreness this morning, and now will be out for several weeks. He's obviously the leader of the committee for saves in Tampa Bay when healthy, but that hardly makes him one of the more valuable relievers in fantasy. If you have a free IL slot, then of course, stashing Kittredge is worthwhile. But otherwise, given his injury and the Rays' bullpen usage, managers can feel free to move on.

Andrew Kittredge (elbow) placed back on 15-day IL

The Rays placed Andrew Kittredge back on the 15-day IL on Thursday with right elbow discomfort.

Fantasy Impact

Kittredge had pitched in only two games since returning from his last stint on the IL, and had allowed one run in two innings. He was previously sidelined with a back injury, so elbow discomfort is obviously a more ominous sign. Expect the Rays to be careful with Kittredge and for him to likely miss more than the minimum 15 days. The Rays should continue to go with a closer by committee approach in Kittredge's absence.

Andrew Kittredge blows third save of 2022

Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge was tasked with preserving a 1-0 lead in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. However, he did not convert, instead allowing one run on two hits, a walk, and a strikeout. Kittredge was charged with the blown save, though Tampa Bay ultimately defeated St. Louis by a score of 4-2 in 10 innings.

Fantasy Impact

This was Kittredge's third blown save of the season; he's now 5-for-8 during save situations. Through 20 innings of work, the right-hander owns a 3.15 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, and .205 OBA. His 6.30 K/9 isn't much to get excited about, but on the other hand, his 0.90 BB/9 is quite impressive. Kittredge is still a solid waiver wire option in most fantasy leagues given his established role as Tampa Bay's closer.

Andrew Kittredge (back) delivers scoreless frame in return

Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge, who had spent the last two weeks on the injured list with lower back tightness, threw a scoreless ninth inning against the White Sox on Sunday. However, it was all for naught as the damage had already been done earlier in the game. Tampa Bay ultimately fell to Chicago by a score of 6-5.

Fantasy Impact

Kittredge is 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA, 0.74 WHIP, and .191 OBA through 19 innings out of the bullpen this season. He has logged five saves over seven opportunities and should be the Rays' primary closer going forward. As such, he's worth rostering in most leagues.
