Cardinals' Trevor Rosenthal works overtime for win
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal pitched two innings on Monday, earning a win.
Both events were rarities for Rosenthal. His win, moving him to 1-0, was his first victory since September 3 of last year. The two-inning outing was his longest since April 28 of last year. Prior to Sunday, he'd gone longer than one inning just twice in 20 appearances this year.
"I'm always thinking about being efficient, but it was definitely good to have that quick inning and be in a spot where he felt comfortable putting me back out there and make his decision easy," Rosenthal said, per MLB.com.
Rosenthal entered a tie game and pitched the ninth and tenth innings, allowing two hits and a walk. He struck out a batter and earned the win when the Cardinals had a walk-off homer in the bottom of the tenth.

|(5/17/15) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal worked a nearly perfect ninth inning in St. Louis' 2-1 win over the Tigers on Sunday, earning his 13th save of the season.
Rosenthal got the first two hitters of the inning out in 11 pitches before allowing a single to James McCann. Rosenthal finished things off with a lineout to second base.
Rosenthal lowered his ERA to 0.95 in 19 innings of work.
Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal gets four outs for 12th save
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Some closers struggle when they arrive on the mound in the eighth inning. Cardinals right-hander Trevor Rosenthal could not be counted among them Thursday against the host Indians.
Rosenthal was summoned with a runner on second and two out in the eighth and fanned Nick Swisher. He then struck out two more in retiring Cleveland in the ninth to nail down his 12th save. He allowed a single to David Murphy, but fanned Zach Walters and red-hot Jason Kipnis to end it.
The St. Louis closer has pitched scoreless ball in 12 of his last 13 appearances.
Cardinals P Trevor Rosenthal earns 11th save of season Friday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Cardinals pitcher Trevor Rosenthal picked up his 11th save of the season during Friday's 8-5 win over the Pirates.
Rosenthal entered in the ninth inning with a three-run lead and he allowed one hit before recording the final three outs. Rosenthal is now 10 for 11 in save opportunities this season.
Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal snags 10th save
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal can thank pitching mates Kevin Siegrist and Seth Manness for an opportunity Thursday to snag his 10th save of the season.
Siegrist opened the ninth by walking Miguel Montero. Manness entered to allow a single to Jorge Soler, putting the tying run on-deck and Rosenthal in a save situation.
No sweat. Rosenthal induced a groundout, then fanned Matt Szczur and Welington Castillo to end it.
|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.
