Trevor Rosenthal picked up his 39th save despite giving up an Andrew McCutchen solo homer Monday against the Pirates.
Rosenthal has been living dangerously pretty much all year long, but the big reason he's been able to keep his job anyway is that he hasn't given up the longball; just one in 59 innings prior to tonight. He's now given up runs in four of his last six appearances. Aug 25 - 10:15 PM

Trevor Rosenthal earned his 38th save of the year Saturday in the Cardinals' 6-5 defeat of the Phillies.

It was the cleanest inning for Rosenthal in a while. He retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the 12th -- one via flyout, one via strikeout, and one via foul pop-out. Rosenthal has been pretty shaky all year, sporting a 3.51 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 59 total innings, but the 24-year-old right-hander is tied with Craig Kimbrel and Francisco Rodriguez for the National League lead in saves. St. Louis is a half-game back of Milwaukee for the NL Central division lead.

Trevor Rosenthal was needed in an emergency in the ninth inning and extinguished a fire, recording his 37th save in the process as the Cardinals escaped with a victory over the Reds on Wednesday.

The Cardinals entered the ninth inning with a seven-run lead, but Carlos Martinez allowed three runs to score on three singles, a double, and a pair of fielding errors by his teammates. Rosenthal entered with runners on second and third and one out. He was able to get Billy Hamilton to ground out, but walked Jay Bruce to bring the tying run to the plate. Cardinals fans exhaled when Todd Frazier grounded out to end the game. Rosenthal is now 37-for-42 in save chances with a 3.57 ERA and a 74/35 K/BB ratio.

Trevor Rosenthal blew his fifth save of the season, but the Cardinals were able to come back and win in 10 innings against the Reds on Monday.

Rosenthal has allowed runs in each of his past three appearances, ending what had been a solid run of pitching following a shaky month and a half to begin the season. The right-hander made the mistake of walking Billy Hamilton, who wreaked havoc on the basepaths and scored on Jay Bruce's double. Rosenthal is now 36-for-41 in save opportunities with a 3.61 ERA and a 74/34 K/BB ratio.

Trevor Rosenthal walked three of the four batters he faced in a save situation Sunday against the Padres.

Rosenthal was called on in the top of the ninth inning to protect a 7-4 lead but couldn't get the job done. He walked Will Venable, walked Alexi Amarista, and then got a friendly call on a strikeout of Rymer Liriano. A walk to Yangervis Solarte followed and then Cardinals manager Mike Matheny finally pulled him. Seth Maness gave up a two-run single to the next batter, Abraham Almonte, but then rallied to record the final two outs. It's time to stash Pat Neshek in all mixed fantasy leagues. Matheny said after the game that he is sticking with Rosenthal for now, but the young right-hander has been flirting with danger all season.

Trevor Rosenthal had his feet to the fire, but narrowly escaped with his 36th save in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Rosenthal entered the ninth inning with a two-run lead and proceeded to allow three hits and two walks. The Padres only managed to push across one run, however, and Rosenthal was able to strike out Tommy Medica to end the game. Rosenthal has been much better in recent months following a tough start to the year. He's 36-for-40 in save chances with a 3.21 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and a 72/30 K/BB ratio.
Aug 14 - 11:36 PM

Trevor Rosenthal earned his 35th save of the season on Tuesday, tossing a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the Cardinals' 3-2 win over the Red Sox.

Yoenis Cespedes added some drama to the frame with a leadoff single, but Rosenthal retired Daniel Nava, Xander Bogaerts and Christian Vazquez in order to snuff out any threat of a rally. The save was his ninth-straight successful conversion without a blown save. He now has 35 saves, the most in baseball, in his first full season as a closer.

Trevor Rosenthal escaped a jam to earn his 34th save in the Cardinals' 3-2 win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Khris Davis muscled a leadoff single against Rosenthal, and he walked eighth-place hitter Elian Herrera to put two runners on with one out. But Rosenthal buckled down to strike out pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett and got Carlos Gomez swinging to end the game. The right-hander has an NL-leading 34 saves to go with a 3.14 ERA and 68/27 K/BB ratio over 51 2/3 innings this year.
Aug 3 - 6:44 PM

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Cubs on Sunday to earn his 32nd save.

Rosenthal allowed a two-out single to Chris Coghlan but struck out Welington Castillo to end it, the second straight game Castillo was Rosenthal's game-ending strikeout victim. His 32 saves are most in the majors, and he's allowed just one run in his last eight appearances to lower his ERA to 3.33.
Jul 27 - 6:56 PM

Trevor Rosenthal earned his 30th save of the season Saturday in the Cardinals' defeat of the Dodgers.

Rosenthal gave up a one-out single to Scott Van Slyke but erased that threat by inducing a game-ending double play from Andre Ethier. Rosenthal has been shaky all season, but he's tied with Braves closer Craig Kimbrel for the major league lead in saves.
Jul 19 - 7:15 PM

Trevor Rosenthal delivered a perfect ninth inning Friday against the Dodgers for his 29th save of the season.

Rosenthal struck out two batters in the frame and has successfully converted each of his last three save opportunities. The hard-throwing right-hander has now gone back-to-back outings with a walk. He hasn't done that since late May.
Jul 19 - 12:43 AM

Trevor Rosenthal delivered a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Brewers to convert his 28th save of the season.

Rosenthal struck out two batters in the inning and worked around a leadoff single from Aramis Ramirez to finish off the victory. It hasn't always been pretty for the 24-year-old this season -- he has walked 26 batters in 43 2/3 innings to go along with a 1.37 WHIP -- but he's tied with Atlanta's Craig Kimbrel for the MLB lead with 28 saves.
Jul 12 - 12:35 AM

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth against the Pirates for his 27th save on Wednesday.

Rosenthal got some help from Peter Bourjos, who made a nice jumping catch at the wall in center to rob Russell Martin of at least an RBI double and end the game. Rosenthal has pitched back-to-back scoreless innings since blowing a save Saturday. He's hardly been a shutdown closer this year, but with 27 saves in 31 chances, he's gotten the job done.
Jul 9 - 11:53 PM

Trevor Rosenthal blew his fourth save of the season Saturday in the Cardinals' loss to the Marlins.

Rosenthal allowed two earned runs in the ninth inning Friday before converting his 26th save and was shaky again on Saturday, yielding a one-out single to Donovan Solano and then a game-tying RBI double to Casey McGehee. The game could have ended on a perfect throw home to nab Solano, but Yadier Molina dropped the ball on the tag. Rosenthal has been inconsistent throughout the 2014 season but his job is probably safe.
Jul 5 - 5:52 PM

Trevor Rosenthal bent but didn't break en route to his 26th save of the season Friday against the Marlins.

Rosenthal was handed a 3-0 lead to begin the top of the ninth inning, but he quickly loaded the bases with two hits and a hit-by pitch before giving up an RBI single to Christian Yelich. He bounced back to strike out Ed Lucas swinging, but then walked Giancarlo Stanton to force in another run. However, he was able to get Casey McGehee to ground into a double play to escape disaster. It wasn't easy Friday, but Rosenthal has successfully converted each of his last 10 save opportunities.
