The Efficiency Of Rosenthal

There were so many people worried about Trevor Rosenthal earlier this season. He was a walking medical emergency on the mound. Walking batters. Creating big counts. Throwing a ton of innings. Rosenthal didn’t settle down until two men were on base and the count was full on batter #3. Some guys just can’t make it easy. That’s [...]

Aaron Sanchez and the Trevor Rosenthal Experiment

On Thursday night, preseason consensus top-50 prospect Aaron Sanchez made his first appearance of the season out of the bullpen for the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Sanchez’s move to the pen is notable for several reasons, even though he already had 14 relief appearances on his minor league resume (though […]

Marlins get to Trevor Rosenthal this time, sting Cardinals with two run comeback in the 9th

Another day, another shutout -- this time Lynn, Rosenthal put up the zeroes

ST. LOUIS -- If the Cardinals' starters are looking for a slogan to define their work this season, here's a suggestion: If you can't shut 'em out, don't show up. Friday night at Busch Stadium, it was Lance Lynn's turn to put up the zeroes, and he did so in the runs and the hits columns. The big right-hander didn't allow a hit until the sixth and worked...

Trevor Rosenthal Bodies A Poor Ball Boy To Make Play On Foul Ball

We’ve seen many times in the past that foul territory bullpens provide the opportunity for the opposing team’s relief pitchers to mess with ball boys, an under-appreciated pastime that Trevor Rosenthal is apparently quite good at. The Cardinals closer denied a Rays’ ball boy the chance to make a play on a rolling foul last night by bodying him out of the way and making the...

Could Jason Motte replace Trevor Rosenthal as Cardinals closer?

Last night Trevor Rosenthal blew a save in the Cardinals eventual 4-3 victory over the Cubs.  While that isn't very concerning, considering that Rosenthal had converted 10 straight saves prior to last night, what is concerning is that Trevor now has a 5.19 ERA while allowing 5.7 BB/9.Could Rosenthal's struggles open the door for Jason Motte to return to the closer role?Its...

Rosenthal's velocity drop is worth noting but not obsessing over

ST. LOUIS -- Of the 25 pitches Trevor Rosenthal threw against the Cubs on Sunday, 17 were fastballs. Of those, only one was timed as slow as 95 mph. Twelve registered at 96 mph, three at 97 and one at 98, according to's play by play. But despite throwing with greater speed than most pitchers in the big leagues, there's concern about diminishing velocity of the Cardinals...

Trevor Rosenthal's ninth inning was pretty good

Before these 2013 playoffs, Trevor Rosenthal had recorded four professional saves in his career. He had one in the minors in 2010 and three at the end of this current Major League season. And yet, after his ninth inning against the Dodgers on Saturday, can you picture anyone else closing games for the Cardinals? His ninth inning might have been one of the most dominant post season...

What does the Trevor Rosenthal promotion mean?

As many St. Louis Cardinals fans already know, right-handed pitching prospect Trevor Rosenthal has been promoted from Double-A Springfield to the big league bullpen. Maikel Cleto was optioned to Memphis, with Jaime Garcia being moved to the 60-day disabled list to clear a 40-man roster spot. The unusual move has led to a number of questions today, so I decided to jot down my thoughts...
