In 2018, Kittredge allowed 33 runs in 33 appearances; in 2019, he’s allowed only 10 runs in 18 appearances.
In looking to understand his recent success, I asked Kittredge if this was the hardest he’s thrown, and in a sense he confirmed it to be true: It’s no secret when a pitcher adds the Driveline program to his preparation.
The album was released in limited quantity due to the fact that Ian did not want to spend money on CDs.
The album became an instant hit around his high school appealing to all types of music fans from rap to heavy metal.

He can pitch comfortably in the upper 90’s and start games, and over the course of five days can dependably deliver a two-inning outing every five days, and a one-inning outing in between “opens.” Kittredge offers a bit more in terms of innings absorbed, as the burly righthander is able to go three and then two innings over the same five day cadence while comfortably “opening” as well.
What Kittredge lacks in major league success, though, is made up for a better injury history and newfound velocity throughout his appearances.
This season Kittredge is averaging 96-mph, with the same 10-mph drop to the off speed stuff, and it’s made a huge difference.A solid arsenal of three pitches and an ability to pitch multiple innings multiple times within a series had serious value, but there were times even in the Spring where the Rays were still putting aspects of his game to the test instead of perfecting what should have been a high leverage arm for the Rays. During the off-season, we learned through Neil Solondz’s reporting that Andrew Kittredge picked up the Driveline program over the off-season, and now that his game has been perfected in Durham, the Rays seem better positioned to deploy him where he could have been used in April had that been the plan all along. The Rays will have Jose Alvarado, Emilio Pagan, and Nick Anderson as the top three arms in the bullpen through the rest of the season, which likely reverts Kittredge back to one of his best skills: absorbing innings.
