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.
Jul 4 - 11:03 PM

Trevor Rosenthal notched his 25th save of the season on Wednesday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants.

Rosenthal's task of protecting a 2-0 lead took a precarious first step as Hunter Pence reached on an infield single, but the 24-year-old bullet dispenser calmly set down the next three batters, all the while declining to allow a ball to escape the infield. He began the year on a shaky note, but hasn't coughed up a run since June 3 to deflate his ERA to 2.97.
Jul 3 - 1:21 AM

Trevor Rosenthal earned his 22nd save of the season on Sunday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning against the Phillies.

Rosenthal allowed a one-out single to Cody Asche, but he worked around it for the save. The right-hander has now converted five save opportunities since blowing a chance on June 4, and he's thrown 7 2/3 scoreless innings in that span. His 22 saves are second-most in the National League.
Jun 22 - 8:08 PM

Trevor Rosenthal was called on to record the last out of the Cardinals' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

The Cardinals led 5-1 when Rosenthal entered with two men on base. He proceeded to allow a single and walked Adam LaRoche to make things interesting, but he got Jayson Werth to pop out to end the threat. After notching three saves in three days, the right-hander is now second in the National League with 20 saves.
Jun 15 - 5:35 PM

Trevor Rosenthal collected his 19th save of 2014 in the Cardinals' win over the Nationals on Saturday.

Rosenthal issued a leadoff walk to Ryan Zimmerman but pitched around the danger to protect a three-run lead for St. Louis. The hard-throwing right-hander has been sharper in recent weeks and has the ability to be a top-tier fantasy closer the rest of the way.
Jun 14 - 10:12 PM

Trevor Rosenthal tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Nationals on Friday for his 18th save of the season.

Rosenthal notched three strikeouts in the inning and worried around a two-out error by Kolten Wong. The young fireballer hasn't been as dominant as expected this season, but he has allowed just one run over his last 11 appearances, lowering his ERA from 4.76 to 3.69 in the process.
Jun 13 - 10:59 PM

Trevor Rosenthal worked out of an eighth inning jam and worked a scoreless ninth to record a four-out save against the Rays on Tuesday.

Rosenthal was called on to get the final out of the eighth with two runners on, and after hitting Jerry Sands he got Matt Joyce to pop out. He recorded two strikeouts in the ninth, including getting Kevin Kiermaier to end the game, for his 17th save of the year. His numbers are slowly coming back down after a rough start, as he's now got a 3.82 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 39/17 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings of work.
Jun 10 - 10:13 PM

Trevor Rosenthal allowed two inherited runners to score Wednesday night against the Royals.

Rosenthal was called on to close the game after Eric Hosmer reached on a passed third strike and Billy Butler singled. The hard-throwing right-hander did not do his job, though the Cardinals were able to pull out the win in the 11th inning. Rosenthal has struggled this season, but the Cardinals don't really have a better option at closer and will surely stick with the talented 24-year-old.
Jun 5 - 12:07 AM

Trevor Rosenthal threw a perfect ninth inning to earn his 16th save on Saturday afternoon against the Giants.

Rosenthal struck out all three batters he faced in vintage fireballing form. He's had some struggles this season, but the 24-year-old right-hander is among the league leader in saves and should remain a top fantasy closer.
