Siegrist gets activated

Kevin Siegrist gets the Cardinals out of a jam against the Giants. (May 19, 2017)

To complete the roster moves made the other day, the Cardinals will activate left handed pitcher Kevin Siegrist from the 10 day disabled list. The reliever had been on the DL since June 23rd for a cervical spine sprain.

Siegrist had a 4.50 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 27.1 innings for the Cardinals this season before his disabled list trip this season, including a 4.15 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over his last 10 appearances.

He made a pair of rehab appearances at Double-A Springfield where he pitched 2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk.

It had been speculated that left handed reliever Zach Duke would get the call to return today. He had Tommy John surgery last fall and has thrown 5 scoreless outings across three levels of the minors during his rehab stint.
