Season Recap: Kevin Siegrist

Kevin Siegrist led the league in games pitched. In 81 appearances, he tossed 74 innings of 2.17 ERA just three years ago. Two years ago, he had a 2.77 ERA in 64 games. He hasn't been that good since.

In the coming days, we're going to recap every player who spent a part of  2017 with the Philadelphia Phillies. The previous post looked at relief pitcher Casey Fien. We even have a landing post with a link to each player's season.

He did pitch in seven games for the Phillies this year. He didn't pitch too poorly either, tossing five innings of 3.60 ERA ball. He allowed one home run, two walks and four hits against seven strikeouts. I thought there was a chance the left-hander would stick with the Phils.
He didn't. They cut him loose today.

I was hoping to keep Siegrist around. He has 2 seasons of arbitration left and he's a good bounceback candidate. Maybe they sign him to a minor league contract.

He is a candidate to be brought back on cheaper contract/minor league with spring invite.
