Trevor Rosenthal set the Reds down in order in the ninth inning for his 31st save as the Cardinals won 4-1 on Monday.
Rosenthal struck out Eugenio Suarez, got Skip Schumaker to pop out, and Billy Hamilton to ground out to end the game. The right-hander has been battling some elbow troubles, responsible in some part for his allowing at least a run in five of 12 appearances this month. Rosenthal, this season, is 31-for-33 in save chances with a 1.71 ERA and a 52/16 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings. Jul 27 - 11:09 PM

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a third straight day Thursday, giving up one run in the ninth but earning his 30th save against the Royals.

We were pretty stunned to see Rosenthal called on for a third day in a row on the heels of his recent elbow concerns. He wasn't really sharp in his one, and it took him 25 pitches to get through the frame, though he managed to protect the lead. He'll certainly get Friday off now, perhaps creating a save chance for Kevin Siegrist.

Trevor Rosenthal pitched in a second straight game Wednesday, throwing a scoreless ninth against the White Sox to pick up his 29th save.

Rosenthal was shaky Tuesday, but this one was easy; he retired the side in order on nine pitches. Given his recent elbow concerns, he'll almost certainly get Thursday off now. That could lead to a save chance for Kevin Siegrist.

Trevor Rosenthal worked into and out of trouble Tuesday against the White Sox, pitching a scoreless ninth to earn his 28th save.

Rosenthal, making his first appearance since the day after the All-Star break, struck out two but allowed two singles to bring Jose Abreu to the plate representing the tying run. The powerful first baseman couldn't make Rosenthal pay, though, grounding out to end the game. The Cardinals are being careful with how they use Rosenthal of late, but there doesn't appear to be anything wrong physically. The 25-year-old now owns a 1.62 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 49/15 K/BB ratio through 44 1/3 innings of work this season.

Trevor Rosenthal struggled Friday against the Mets, but managed to hang on for his 27th save of the season.

Rosenthal was hit hard in back-to-back appearances last weekend and sat out the All-Star Game due to arm soreness, but the Cardinals weren't overly concerned. One wonders whether that's about to change. Rosenthal really labored in the frame, throwing 33 pitches while allowing one run one three hits. He struck out John Mayberry, Jr. swinging to end the ballgame, but he just didn't look right. At the very least, he's unlikely to be available Saturday. It still makes sense to have Kevin Siegrist around as an insurance policy in fantasy leagues.

Trevor Rosenthal won't pitch in Tuesday night's All-Star Game due to soreness in his right arm.

Rosenthal struggled in his last two appearances before the All-Star break and then came away with some discomfort after a throwing session Monday in Cincinnati. It doesn't sound like anything to be overly concerned about yet. The break comes at a good time for the 25-year-old flamethrower, who boasts a 1.49 ERA and 26 saves in 42 1/3 total innings this season.
Jul 14 - 4:09 PM

Trevor Rosenthal blew his second save of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits over 2/3 of an inning against the Pirates.

Rosenthal entered with a two-run advantage in the 10th inning. He allowed a leadoff single to Jordy Mercer, then retired Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen without any issues. Things began to get dicey though when Starling Marte delivered an RBI single to cut the lead to one. Jung Ho Kang and Francisco Cervelli followed with singles and Travis Ishikawa walked before Gregory Polanco walked it off with an RBI knock. Even with this debacle though, Rosenthal ends a terrific first half with a 1.49 ERA and 1.18 WHIP while converting 26 of his 28 save chances.
Jul 12 - 11:54 PM

Trevor Rosenthal secured his 23rd save of the season on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a three-run advantage against the Cubs.

He made things interesting, allowing a pair of singles to Chris Coghlan and Matt Szczur to bring the tying run to the plate, but was able to battle back and retire Addison Russell and Dexter Fowler to put the game on ice. For the season, he has blown just one save opportunity and owns an outstanding 0.52 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 37/11 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings.

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins to earn his 22nd save of the season on Tuesday.

Rosenthal gave up a one-out single to Donovan Solano but was otherwise perfect. He now owns a 0.56 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 34/11 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings this year.
Jun 23 - 10:12 PM

Trevor Rosenthal tossed a scoreless inning Saturday in the Cardinals' blowout win over the Phillies.

It was the first outing in a week for the flame-throwing closer, who had been bothered by upper arm discomfort. Rosenthal hit 100 mph multiple times Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park, which is obviously a very good sign. He remains a top-tier ninth-inning man. Kevin Siegrist picked up two saves while Rosenthal was sidelined but can probably now be dropped.

Trevor Rosenthal (arm) was available on Wednesday.

But he didn't wind up pitching in the Cardinals' 3-1 loss to the Twins. Rosenthal hasn't pitched since Saturday because of upper arm discomfort, but the hard-throwing 25-year-old right-hander will presumably handle the next save opportunity for the Cardinals. Kevin Siegrist is still worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues.
Jun 18 - 10:14 AM

Trevor Rosenthal explained Tuesday that he's had "kind of like a knot in my bicep" since Saturday but is "progressively getting better since."

Rosenthal was unavailable for a second straight day on Tuesday, as Kevin Siegrist was again used in a save situation. But, it appears that he's feeling much better and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that the disabled list is not a consideration at the moment. Siegrist is a wise pick-up for fantasy owners regardless of the bit of good news on the Cards' closer.
Jun 16 - 6:57 PM

Trevor Rosenthal (arm) was unavailable again Tuesday.

Kevin Siegrist was called on to protect a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning Tuesday and picked up his second save in as many days. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that Trevor Rosenthal's arm issue shouldn't result in a disabled list stint, but Siegrist is worth grabbing in standard mixed fantasy leagues just in case.
Jun 16 - 5:49 PM

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable to pitch Monday because of tightness in his pitching arm.

The skipper said Rosenthal wouldn't have been available Sunday, either, had the game not gotten rained out. Kevin Siegrist closed out the one-run victory over the Twins with Rosenthal unavailable, hitting one batter in a scoreless frame. The Cards aren't anticipating a disabled list stint for the closer, but fantasy owners might want to scoop up Siegrist just in case.
Jun 15 - 11:35 PM

Trevor Rosenthal shut down the Dodgers in the ninth inning on Sunday, protecting a two-run advantage to earn his league-leading 19th save of the season.

Rosenthal generated a foul pop out from Yasmani Grandal and then struck out Alex Guerrero and got Jimmy Rollins to fly out to put the game on ice. The 25-year-old hurler now boasts a 0.64 ERA and 29/10 K/BB ratio through 28 innings on the season while converting 19 of his first 20 save chances.
