Trevor Rosenthal slammed the door on the Dodgers on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a three-run advantage.

Rosenthal picked up his seventh save of the season for his troubles. He made things interesting by walking Adrian Gonzalez to start the inning, but battled back to strike out Yasmani Grandal and then induce a double play ground ball. The 25-year-old hurler now boasts a 1.50 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through his first 12 innings on the season.

Trevor Rosenthal blew his first save of the season Saturday against the Pirates.

Rosenthal was credited with the victory after Matt Carpenter smashed a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. He entered the game with a 4-3 advantage but lost it when David Freese scored on a two-out double by Starling Marte. Rosenthal was extremely fortunate as Marte's hit bounced over the wall for a ground-rule double. Had it stayed in play, Gregory Polanco certainly would have scored from third base. Rosenthal remains one of the game's best closers with five saves and an excellent 1.80 ERA. Saturday was just a blip on the radar.
May 7 - 6:23 PM

Trevor Rosenthal collected his 100th career save Wednesday in the Cardinals' 5-3 defeat of the Cubs.

Rosenthal was locked in for this one, whiffing all three batters he faced on just 13 pitches. And those batters: Miguel Montero, Javier Baez, and Jorge Soler. The flamethrowing Cardinals closer is 4-for-4 in save opportunities this season with 14 strikeouts in six innings. He should remain a top-tier fantasy closer all summer long.
Apr 20 - 7:56 PM

Trevor Rosenthal earned his third save of the season Sunday in the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Reds.

Rosenthal has struggled this year in non-save situations, but he's been excellent when given a lead. He blew the Reds away on 12 pitches Sunday, and nine of those pitches for strikes. The flamethrowing right-hander whiffed two of the three batters he faced.
Apr 17 - 5:13 PM

Trevor Rosenthal collected his second save of the season in Sunday's 12-7 win over the Braves.

Rosenthal was called into the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with the bases loaded and Jeff Francoeur stepping to the plate as a pinch-hitter. The young fireballing closer had no problem with the veteran outfielder, striking him out on four pitches. Rosenthal allowed a run in the bottom of the ninth, but it came on another bad fielding error by Kolten Wong and so it went down as unearned.
Apr 10 - 5:37 PM

Trevor Rosenthal notched his first save of the season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Cardinals on Friday.

Rosenthal threw 14 pitches and struck out two batters along the way. The 25-year-old struggled with his control during his first season in the closer role in 2014, but he cut down on his walks last season while finishing with a 2.10 ERA and 48 saves. We wouldn’t expect an ERA repeat, but he misses plenty of bats and should find himself among the league leaders in saves once again.
Apr 8 - 11:20 PM

Trevor Rosenthal told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he has not engaged in any substantial long-term contract negotiations with the Cardinals.

"As far as contractual, multi-year type things, I guess we haven’t had any talks," said Rosenthal. "I don’t know what they’re thinking, what we’re thinking. I don’t know how any of that looks because I haven’t gone through it." Rosenthal is a Scott Boras client, and Boras usually advises his best players to go year-to-year through arbitration before hitting it big on the free agent market. St. Louis will pay the closer $5.6 million in 2016 -- his first year of arbitration eligibility. He'll be eligible for salary arbitration again in 2017 and 2018.
Jan 21 - 10:43 AM

Cardinals and RHP Trevor Rosenthal avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.6 million contract.

It's a massive raise for Rosenthal in his first year of arbitration eligibility, although it's significantly less than the $6.5 million MLBTradeRumors.com projected him to earn. Rosenthal held a 2.10 ERA while striking out well over a batter per frame in 2015 and will be trying for his third straight 40-save season in 2016.
Jan 15 - 2:09 PM

Trevor Rosenthal got into and out of ninth inning trouble, snagging his 48th save in Monday's shutout win over the Pirates.

Rosenthal walked Andrew McCutchen and allowed a single to Starling Marte, bringing the tying run to the plate with no outs. He rebounded by striking out Neil Walker, getting Francisco Cervelli to fly out, and inducing a game-ending line out from Aramis Ramirez. The hard-throwing closer is now 48-for-51 in save situations with a 2.10 ERA and an 83/25 K/BB ratio in 68 2/3 innings.

Trevor Rosenthal absolutely bombed in the ninth inning of Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Brewers, allowing four runs on two hits without recording an out in the ninth inning.

Rosenthal entered the proceedings with the Cardinals holding a 3-1 lead. He proceeded to absolutely light the field on fire, putting the first three runners on base before surrendering a grand slam to the pinch-hitting Jason Rogers before being relieved of duty. After allowing just one homer over 66 2/3 innings prior to this series against the Brewers, Rosenthal's given up two bombs in the last three days. Despite the little tough stretch, he still holds a 2.13 ERA and 82/24 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings. He's now 47-for-50 in save chances.

Trevor Rosenthal gave up a go-ahead homer to Khris Davis in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

Rosenthal entered the game with the score tied 3-3 in the top of the ninth inning before Davis led off the frame with a homer. It was just the second home run allowed by Rosenthal in 67 2/3 innings this season.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 12:16:00 AM

Trevor Rosenthal snagged his 47th save of the year on Monday, closing out a 2-1 win against the Reds.

Rosenthal allowed back-to-back one-out singles but got Jay Bruce to fly out and Brayan Pena to ground out to end the game. He's one off of the major league lead in saves, as Mark Melancon has 48. Rosenthal has found himself in 49 save situations and posted a 1.49 ERA with an 81/23 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings.
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 11:02:00 PM

Trevor Rosenthal slammed the door on the Brewers to earn his 44th save of the season on Tuesday.

Rosenthal gave up a harmless two-out single to Logan Schafer in the bottom of the 10th, but he struck out Scooter Gennett to end it. The right-hander struck out two in the frame, giving him a 75/23 K/BB ratio over 63 1/3 innings this year. Rosenthal, who owns a 1.56 ERA and 1.20 WHIP, is one save shy of recording 45 saves in back-to-back years.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 11:34:00 PM

Rosenthal came in after the Cardinals' big rally in the bottom of the eighth inning and shut down the rival Cubs with a 1-2-3 inning. He is now tied with the Pirates' Mark Melancon for the MLB lead in saves.
