Trevor Rosenthal earned his fourth save of the season Sunday in the Cardinals' defeat of the Cubs.
Rosenthal wasn't flashing his typical high-90s velocity -- it was more 94-96 mph -- and the Cubs were able to get to him for a run on two hits. But he entered the game with a three-run lead and was able to preserve the Cardinals' seventh victory of the young season. There's no reason to worry yet about Rosenthal. Some hard-throwers struggle to light up the radar gone in April. Apr 13 - 6:17 PM

Trevor Rosenthal took the loss Friday after giving up a go-ahead three run homer to Welington Castillo.

After pitching a scoreless top of the 10th inning, Rosenthal was curiously left in to hit with two outs and the winning run on second base in the bottom of the frame. He struck out looking in the at-bat and gave up the go-ahead blast to Castillo in the 11th. Not Mike Matheny's finest hour. Rosenthal's ERA isn't pretty at the moment, but we still expect him to be one of the game's top closers this year.
Apr 12 - 1:03 AM

A day after allowing two runs, Trevor Rosenthal rebounded to earn his third save in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Rosenthal showed no ill effects of his 27-pitch inning in Monday's win, as he worked around a Brayan Pena single en route to his third save. The hard-throwing right-hander struck out two in his inning of work. He'll likely get Wednesday off after working two straight days.
Apr 9 - 12:23 AM

Trevor Rosenthal struggled in a non-save situation versus the Reds Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over an inning of work.

Rosenthal was lacking fastball command and appeared to be having trouble with the mound after a rainy day in St. Louis. He allowed the first four batters to reach before retiring the next three to close out the win. Rosenthal hadn't allowed any baserunners in his previous two appearances.
Apr 7 - 8:41 PM

Trevor Rosenthal struck out one as he recorded a four-out save in perfect fashion Thursday against the Reds.

Rosenthal was asked to come in in the eighth inning to face Brandon Phillips with Billy Hamilton on first base. He got Phillips swinging before going through the heart of the order in the ninth, needing just 12 pitches to dispose of four hitters. Rosenthal will be among the best closers in the game this season.
Apr 3 - 8:23 PM

Trevor Rosenthal struck out two in a perfect ninth inning in Monday's win over the Reds.

Rosenthal was facing the bottom of the order, but it probably wouldn't have mattered who he was going up against given how his stuff looked. The 23-year-old hummed fastballs in the upper-90s and dropped nasty changeups in the upper-80s to retire the Reds in order. He should be an elite fantasy closer this season.
Mar 31 - 8:11 PM

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a hitless inning in his spring debut Saturday against the Nationals.

Rosenthal missed the last week and a half with a right groin injury. The Cardinals had no reason to rush him back from the injury, since it happened so early on in the spring.
Mar 8 - 5:11 PM

Trevor Rosenthal (groin) threw 15 pitches in a live batting practice session Wednesday.

Wednesday was the first time that Rosenthal faced hitters since he tweaked his groin last Tuesday. He showed no ill effects in the bullpen session or during fielding drills, so the next step should be game action. Good news for the Redbirds.
Mar 5 - 1:00 PM

Trevor Rosenthal (groin) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday afternoon.

Rosenthal tweaked his right groin while throwing batting practice, but he hasn't had any issues since. If all goes well Wednesday, he should be cleared to make his spring debut.
Mar 5 - 8:38 AM

Trevor Rosenthal (groin) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

It's the first time he's been on a mound since tweaking his right groin during a live batting practice session last Tuesday. Rosenthal is expected to appear in Grapefruit League action later this week as long as he can avoid a setback. The fireballer will be the Cardinals' closer this season.
Mar 2 - 10:16 AM

Trevor Rosenthal (groin) has progressed in his weight room workouts and is expected to return to the mound soon.

Rosenthal was forced to cut short a live batting practice session on Tuesday due to a strained right groin, but the issue appears to be minor. The Cardinals have yet to announce a date in which he'll return to game action, but it's expected to be in the coming week.
Mar 1 - 11:10 AM

Trevor Rosenthal has been diagnosed with a right groin strain.

Rosenthal had to halt a live batting practice session early Tuesday, but it's considered a minor issue. "If it was during the season, I feel like it would be something not worth stopping [for]," Rosenthal said. "With the situation being now, I just thought I would say something. I felt it once, so I said something as soon as I could." Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak added that the closer is considered "day-to-day."
Feb 25 - 6:31 PM

Trevor Rosenthal left workouts for precautionary reasons Tuesday due to discomfort in his right leg.

The sound you hear is Cardinals fans letting out a sigh of relief. Rosenthal decided to cut his workout short after feeling something in his upper quad, but it doesn't sound like a big deal.
Feb 25 - 12:50 PM

Trevor Rosenthal left the field during workouts Tuesday in apparent discomfort.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that it didn't appear to be arm-related, but that's just speculation for now. The Cardinals should provide an update soon.
Feb 25 - 11:45 AM

Trevor Rosenthal is expected to enter the 2014 regular season as the Cardinals' closer.

Rosenthal has stated publicly that he wants a chance to be a starter, but the Cardinals like him in the ninth inning for now. Jason Motte is not expected to return from Tommy John elbow surgery until early May. Rosenthal will carry massive fantasy value next season.
