Rosenthal shaky again in nailing down save


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:14 pm ET) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal continued to struggle and save Saturday. He gave up yet another run, this time against the Nationals, but escaped to earn his fifth save.

Rosenthal hurled a hitless ninth, but a walk, balk and groundout brought in a run before he fanned Jayson Werth to end it. He has given up six earned runs in the last seven innings covering six appearances.


Rafael Soriano fine after Friday scare


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:14 pm ET) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano took a ground ball off his leg during Friday's appearance against the Cardinals, but told MLB.com he did not suffer an injury as a result. He was able to stay in the game, and is expected to be available moving forward. 

Reds bring Sean Marshall up, send Curtis Partch down


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:21 pm ET) The Reds have activated relief pitcher Sean Marshall off the disabled list after a rehab stint and returned fellow right-hander Curtis Partch back to Triple-A Louisville.

Marshall has been out all season with a shoulder injury that also cost him most of 2013. He had been a productive member of the bullpen for the Cubs and Reds for several years before losing time to the injury.


Addison Reed blows first save on homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:30 am ET) Diamondbacks closer Addison Reed was given a one-run lead to protect Friday, and could not hold it as he blew his first save of the season vs. the Dodgers.

Reed allowed a solo home run with one out in the ninth, tying the game, 2-2. He finished the inning by recording consecutive flyball outs to send it into extra innings, where the Diamondbacks would go on to win, 4-2.

Reed now has three saves in four opportunities, and has allowed four runs in nine innings of work on the season.   


Steve Cishek picks up first win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:58 am ET) Marlins close Steve Cishek hasn't had many opportunities to pitch so far, as he entered Friday's game against the Mariners with the score tied, for just his fifth appearance of the season.  

Cishek pitched well in the 4-4 game, retiring all three batters faced on 16 pitches, including one strikeout. The Marlins then went on to get him his first win of the season, with Giancarlo Stanton hitting a walk-off grand slam to clinch the 8-4 victory.

Cishek is 1-0 with a pair of saves, and has yet to allow a run in five innings of work this season. 


Huston Street gives up homer, picks up sixth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:55 am ET) Padres closer Huston Street was touched for his first run of the season Friday, but still earned the save in a 2-1 win over the Giants.

Street surrendered a solo home run to Brandon Belt, making the insurance run the Padres picked up in the eighth inning even more important. He retired the side relatively easily from that point on, striking out three batters and walking one for his sixth save.

Street is 6 for 6 on save opportunities this season with nine strikeouts and two walks in seven innings of work. 


Francisco Rodriguez keeps rolling with fifth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez wasn't at his sharpest, but still picked up his fifth save of the season in a 5-3 win Friday over the Pirates.

Rodriguez battled control issues in his outing, walking one batter and throwing just nine of 19 pitches for strikes. Still, he was bale to retire the side in order, with one strikeout, to earn the save.

Rodriguez has yet to allow a run this season while recording five saves in as many opportunities. He is off to a great start, with 13 strikeouts and just two walks through his first eight innings of work.  


Rafael Soriano faces the minimum for fourth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano had a bit of cushion, and picked up his fourth save of the season pretty easily in a 3-1 win over the Cardinals.

Soriano walked one hitter to put the tying run at the plate with one out, but ended any possible threat by inducing a game-ending double play from the next batter. He is now perfect in four save opportunities, and has yet to allow a run in six innings this season. 


Tyson Ross dazzles for second win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:41 am ET) Padres starting pitcher Tyson Ross evened his record in a 2-1 win over the Giants Friday, as he twirled another gem for the win.

Ross tossed eight terrific innings, shutting out the Giants and allowing just four hits and a walk. After allowing a leadoff double to open the game, Ross was rarely in trouble in the start, allowing just the one extra-base hit. He struck out nine batters while throwing 66 of 100 pitches for strikes.

Ross wasn't sharp in his first two starts of the season, both losses, but has found his way over his last two. He has struck out 16 with just two walks over his last 15 innings of work, and is now 2-2 with a 2.13 ERA heading into his next start, Wednesday against the Brewers. 


Shawn Camp gets the call from Triple-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) The Phillies recalled reliever Shawn Camp from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday, after the bullpen was thinned out in a 12-1 loss to the Rockies. Camp was one of the final cuts in the spring.

Camp was a useful reliever as recently as two season ago, but posted an ugly 7.05 ERA in 26 appearances for the Cubs a year ago. Camp has a 3.00 ERA in six innings for Lehigh Valley this season. 


Blake Treinen will resume starting in minors


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Pitcher Blake Treinen spent his time with the Nationals pitching out of the bullpen, logging 6 2/3 innings over three appearances before being sent down Friday. The team wants Treinen to work as a starter at Triple-A Syracuse, in case he is needed for the rotation down the road.

"He is going to build his innings down there, certainly work on his secondary pitches. He has a pretty electric fastball," manager Matt Williams told MLB.com Friday. "He pitched really well for us."

Treinen will join the rotation Tuesday for Syracuse, a role he is used to. He made 20 of his 21 appearances for Double-A Harrisburg as a starter in 2013, posting a 3.64 ERA over 118 2/3 innings of work. 


Jonathan Broxton closes out win over Cubs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton picked up his second save in a row Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Cubs.

Broxton got through the ninth with little trouble, walking just one batter while striking out two. He has now appeared in three games since returning from the disabled list, allowing one hit and three walks while striking out four batters in three shutout innings. 


Mets receive Zack Thornton, PTBNL for Ike Davis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) The Pirates have agreed to send minor-league pitcher Zack Thornton and a player to be named later back to the Mets in exchange for first baseman Ike Davis, the team announced Friday.

Thornton has yet to appear in the majors, but has seen success as a reliever in the minors. He has a 3.31 ERA at Triple-A, and has struck out 285 batters to just 63 walks in 252 1/3 career innings in the minors.


Craig Kimbrel good to go Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Braves reliever Craig Kimbrel is healthy enough to pitch Friday against the Mets, after missing the team's previous four games with shoulder soreness. He told a local sports radio station he is good to go Friday, and will pitch in the event of a save situation.

Kimbrel has been effective when healthy this season, allowing just one run on three hits in 5 2/3 innings, with five saves and 12 strikeouts. 


Xavier Cedeno on his way up


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Nationals pitcher Xavier Cedeno is on his way to the majors. 

The team called up Cedeno Friday in order to get more help in the bullpen. Blake Treinen was sent down in order to make room for Cedeno. Last season, Cedeno posted a 6.57 ERA with the Astros and the Nationals. He tossed just 12 1/3 innings in the majors.


Blake Treinen sent back down Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen has been sent back to the minors Friday.

Treinen tossed 2 2/3 innings Thursday night against the Cardinals, giving up one earned run. Overall, he appeared in three games, posting a 1.35 ERA. He struck out seven and walked two in 6 2/3 innings.


Aroldis Chapman cleared to throw live batting practice


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Reds reliever Aroldis Chapman has been cleared to throw live batting practice, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

Chapman has progressed after he was hit in the face by a line drive during spring training. He's been able to get through bullpen sessions without any issues. That could change when he faces hitters for the first time, so throwing live batting practice will be a significant step in his recovery. 


LaTroy Hawkins needs just five pitches for fourth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins made quick work of the Padres Thursday, en route to his fourth save of the season.

Despite allowing a leadoff single to Chris Denorfia, Hawkins needed just five pitches to finish off the save. He retired the next batter on a flyball to right, and then induced a double play to end the game, closing out the 3-1 win.

Hawkins has four saves in four opportunities, and holds a 1.59 ERA in 5 2/3 innings of work.


Carlos Martinez not considered an option for spot starts


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) The Cardinals are not considered moving pitcher Carlos Martinez from the bullpen to the rotation, despite losing Joe Kelly to a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list Thursday, according to MLB.com.

"You'd be looking at stretching him out just to slow him back down again," Matheny said. "This is one of those scenarios where we just don't know how long it's going to be [for Kelly]. It's not set in stone, and I think you take that risk of pulling [Martinez] out, getting him going just to slow him back down if things [with Kelly] progress quickly."

According to the report, the team prefers to pick a starter from the Triple-A squad in Memphis, rather than move Carlos Martinez into a starting role for a few spot starts. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are both mentioned as possible options for the spot.

Martinez has a 1.86 ERA in 9 2/3 innings of the bullpen, and has yet to throw more than 31 pitches in any outing. 


Kenley Jansen struggles, picks up fifth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen was not sharp yet again Thursday, but still managed to pick up his fifth save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Giants.

Jansen entered the game with a two-run lead and allowed a run on one hit and a walk, the fifth time he has been scored on in 11 outings. He struck out two batters and was able to work out of trouble to close out the win.

Jansen has had an interesting start to the season, posting a 5.00 ERA through his first 11 appearances. He has 17 strikeouts and five walks, while allowing 13 hits in nine innings of work. He has five saves in seven opportunities. 


Jonathan Papelbon stays hot in shutting down Atlanta


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon remained on a roll Thursday by converting his fourth consecutive save, this time against Atlanta.

Papelbon toyed with the heart of the lineup, enducing Freddie Freeman to fly out before fanning Justin Upton and Chris Johnson.

Aside from one poor outing on April 2, Papelbon has given up just one hit in six scoreless innings.


Who would be hard-luck loser Thursday? Alex Wood


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Braves left-hander Alex Wood played the role of hard-luck loser in a fine complete-game performance Thursday in Philadelphia.

Wood matched shutout innings with A.J. Burnett until yielding an RBI single to Ben Revere with two out in the eighth. He surrendered eight hits, walked none and fanned seven in lowering his ERA to 1.89. His lone walk kept the eighth inning alive.

He will get a chance to improve his 2-2 record in a Tuesday showdown against Miami stud Jose Fernandez.


Cardinals make multiple moves with pitching staff


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) The Cardinals have made several moves in the wake of starting pitcher Joe Kelly being placed on the disabled list. They have promoted pitchers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Memphis and dispatched fellow right-hander Keith Butler to the Redbirds.

Joe Kelly placed on DL with hamstring injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) A hamstring injury sustained Wednesday while attempting to beat out an infield hit has landed Cardinals right-hander Joe Kelly on the 15-day disabled list. He had been sent back to St. Louis for an MRI, the results of which have yet to be revealed.

Kelly has been brilliant in three starts with one earned run surrendered in 15 1/3 innings, though he owns just a 1-1 record. His 0.59 ERA leads the National League.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Giants closer Sergio Romo picked up his fourth straight save to open the season Wednesday, in a 2-1 win over the Dodgers.

Pitching with just a one-run lead and little margin for error, Romo was perfect Wednesday. He retired all three batters in order on 11 pitches, including two via strikeout.

Romo has allowed just one run in seven appearances this season, and it came in his first trip to the mound. He has a 1.29 ERA in seven innings, with three hits and one walk allowed, while striking out four.
