Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable Friday night due to arm soreness.
Rosenthal said that decision was made by the team's medical staff. It sounds like Rosenthal is just going through the usual wear and tear of a long season. The former closer has fared well in a setup role this year, producing a 2.93 ERA with a stellar 15.85 K/9 over 16 outings. Rosenthal should be available for Saturday's game against the Giants.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out two in a clean inning to pick up his third save on Tuesday against the Brewers.

Seung Hwan Oh had the night off after throwing a bunch of pitches Monday, so Rosenthal was tasked with protecting a one-run lead Tuesday. He did so with ease, getting a couple swinging strikeouts in addition to a lineout. Oh has rebounded from a rough start and isn't in danger of losing his job, but Rosenthal looks excellent and would have plenty of value if something happened to Oh.

Trevor Rosenthal wasn't available to pitch Tuesday due to some general arm soreness.

The Cardinals have avoided using Rosenthal on back-to-back days so far after he suffered a lat strain and subsequently aggravated the injury twice this spring. It wasn't the lat that kept him out Tuesday, but regardless the club is going to continue being careful with his workload. Rosenthal returned to pitch Thursday and was electric, striking out two in a scoreless frame. He has a 13/0 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 relief innings this season.
Apr 28 - 9:33 AM

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in Thursday's nightcap win over the Blue Jays.

With closer Seung Hwan Oh having pitched in the afternoon contest, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny called on Rosenthal to protect the two-run lead in the night game. Rosenthal responded, striking out two while needing just 13 pitches to get the job done. Healthy after a lat injury to start the year, the 26-year-old has a 2.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 13/0 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 innings and seems to have the inside track on the closer gig should Oh vacate it at any point.

Trevor Rosenthal earned his first save of the season Wednesday afternoon against the Pirates.

Seung Hwan Oh was used Monday and Tuesday and has not been sharp through the early part of this season, so Rosenthal got the call in the ninth inning Wednesday to finish up a three-game sweep of Pittsburgh. Rosenthal hit 101 mph and struck out two in his scoreless frame, though he did allow a single to John Jaso and needed a total of 23 pitches. We wouldn't expect Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to make a change at closer quite yet, but Rosenthal makes for a smart stash.
Apr 19 - 4:29 PM

Trevor Rosenthal worked a scoreless eighth inning Monday night against the Pirates.

Rosenthal struck out one batter in a 1-2-3 frame, earning his second hold of the season while hitting 100 mph with his fastball and throwing 12 of his 15 pitches for strikes. Rosenthal looks way sharper than he did in 2016 and closer Seung Hwan Oh has struggled out of the gate this year, but it doesn't sound like a role change is coming soon.
Apr 17 - 9:32 PM

Trevor Rosenthal struck out three batters in a perfect seventh inning Monday versus the Nationals.

The hard-throwing right-hander was making his 2017 regular-season debut after needing some extra time to recover from a late-spring lat strain. He looked like the Rosenthal of old, zipping 98 and 99 mph fastballs past Wilmer Difo, Adam Eaton, and Anthony Rendon. Rosenthal could potentially work his way back into the ninth-inning mix in St. Louis if Seung Hwan Oh's early-season struggles continue.
Apr 10 - 10:58 PM

Cardinals activated RHP Trevor Rosenthal from the 10-day disabled list.

Rosenthal got some extra time to recover from a lat strain to begin the year, but didn't require a minor league rehab assignment. It's unclear what role he'll fill in the Cardinals' bullpen, as he could be used in a set-up role or as a multi-inning reliever.
Apr 10 - 12:09 PM

Trevor Rosenthal (lat) is on track to be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday.

That's assuming he recovers well from his simulated game Saturday. Rosenthal began the season on the DL with a strained right lat but it appears he'll return without going on a rehab assignment first. The Cardinals have discussed using the former closer in a multi-inning role, but he could also fill a traditional setup role.
Apr 9 - 10:18 AM

Trevor Rosenthal (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list before going on a rehab assignment.

Rosenthal threw a successful bullpen session Thursday and had no issues with the strained right lat that landed him on the DL. The reliever is eligible for activation on Sunday and he could return that day if he recovers well from Thursday's session.
Apr 7 - 11:54 AM

Trevor Rosenthal (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a low-intensity bullpen session on Tuesday.

If that goes well, he'll throw with more intensity on Thursday or Friday. Rosenthal, who landed on the 10-day disabled list at the end of spring training because of a right lat strain, is currently on target to join the Cardinals' bullpen in a setup capacity sometime next week.
Apr 4 - 4:38 PM

Cardinals placed RHP Trevor Rosenthal on the 10-day disabled list with a right lat strain.

This is not a new injury for Rosenthal, but he hadn't been bothered by it for the last few weeks. Apparently there has been a setback. Sam Tuivailala has been recalled from the Triple-A roster and will open the 2017 season in the Cardinals' bullpen.
Mar 30 - 2:54 PM

Trevor Rosenthal threw a pair of scoreless frames Thursday in a start against the Twins.

Rosenthal allowed two hits, walked two and struck out two against a lineup that didn't include a single regular. It was Rosenthal's first appearance in two weeks after he was shut down with tightness in his right lat. Barring a setback, he should be ready to open the year in the Cardinals' pen.
Mar 16 - 4:03 PM

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday that the team needs to see Trevor Rosenthal (lat) in a game this week in order to know whether he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Rosenthal has pitched in two Grapefruit League games but none since March 3 because of a sore right lat. He's resumed throwing off a mound, although he hasn't done it at full effort yet. Rosenthal should be ready for game action at some point this week as long as he doesn't have a setback.
Mar 12 - 11:30 AM

Trevor Rosenthal (lat) threw a bullpen session Thursday.

He didn't throw at full effort and will need at least one more bullpen session before being cleared to return to game action. The good news is that Rosenthal appears to be over his minor lat strain. The bad news is the injury surely killed whatever chance he might have had at a rotation spot.
