Andrew Kittredge
29-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Kittredge headed up a bullpen game in Tampa Bay's third game of the season and went on to make 32 additional appearances (two additional "starts") over the remainder of the season, covering no more than 2.1 innings in any of those outings. The slider remained Kittredge's primary pitch, but he cut its usage down from 71% to 54.7% and instead relied more heavily on his fastball. The altered mix was mostly unsuccessful as Kittredge's fastball velocity was down, his Ks were down as well and his walks and homers were up (the homers especially). The Rays outrighted Kittredge off the 40-man roster after the season but he remains in the organization. Read Past Outlooks
Strikes out three
PTampa Bay Rays
June 22, 2019
Kittredge struck out three and allowed two hits and one walk over two scoreless innings in Friday's win over the Athletics.
ANALYSIS
The 29-year-old excelled as the opener and has given up just one earned run in 3.2 big-league innings this year. Jalen Beeks, the primary pitcher, allowed home runs in both of the next two innings, so it's impressive that Kittredge was able to limit the Athletics' production. The right-hander has been effective at recording strikeouts and limiting runs with Triple-A Toledo this season, so he could be a prime option to continue serving as an opener in 2019.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 20 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kittredge is an interesting player. He throws his fastball close to 95 mph on average, but it basically never gets by hitters. In fact, he had just a 1.4 percent whiff rate with the fastball last season, according to Brooks Baseball. He only threw it 29 percent of the time in his first opportunity in the big leagues last year, instead relying primarily on his slider, which does generate swinging strikes unlike the fastball. Kittredge issued too many free passes with the Rays last year, but his history on the farm points to improvement ahead -- he's had identical 2.1 BB/9 marks at the Triple-A level over the past two seasons. The Tampa Bay bullpen is unsettled and Kittredge could rise through the ranks with more refinement, but first things first: he needs to lock down a roster spot in spring training.
