Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal survives shaky outing for 41st save
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/28/15) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal made this dicey, but he settled down to preserve the 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal allows run, but notches save
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/25/15) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal was due to give up a run - and he did Monday against the host Diamondbacks. But he emerged with his 39th save anyway.
Rosenthal yielded two hits in the ninth, incuding a run-scoring single by David Peralta. But he struck out Yasmany Tomas to end it.
It marked his first run allowed in 11 appearances dating back to July 23.
Cardinals' Trevor Rosenthal strikes out two, records 38th save
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(8/19/15) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal continued his stellar season by recording two strikeouts in his team's win over the Giants on Wednesday.
Rosenthal closed out the ninth inning without allowing a hit, and earning a league-high 38th save of the season. He has a 1.44 ERA in 56 1/3 innings this season.
|2014 summary: After blowing everyone away as a setup man in 2013 and thriving in his audition for the closer role that postseason, Trevor Rosenthal recorded 45 saves in his first full season closing and continued to pile up strikeouts, recording 87 a year after topping 100. But some uncharacteristic wildness prevented him from joining the Craig Kimbrel/Greg Holland/Aroldis Chapman/Kenley Jansen tier as hoped and nearly cost him his job. It never really got better either. His 5.4 walks per nine innings were the eighth-most among relievers with at least 50 innings. |
Playing time status: The Cardinals have a deep bullpen but are lacking closers-in-waiting, which is partly what saved Rosenthal last year. Former closer Jason Motte never posed a threat in his return from Tommy John surgery and is gone now, as is All-Star setup man Pat Neshek. So despite his struggles, Rosenthal enters 2015 with good job security.
2015 outlook: Because his strikeout rate remained high, you know the potential is there for Neshek if he can get his stuff back under control. But that's a big if. Closing for a perennial contender, he's likely to pile up saves either way, but the game has an abundance of dominant closers right now who come with far more assurances than him. He's a top-20 reliever on potential, but you'd be taking a big risk drafting him as your top closer.
