Cardinals' Rosenthal finds initial sucess pitching out of stretch


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal has adopted the team's suggestions of abandoning his windup and pitching solely out of the stretch, and after striking out the side for the save in the regular-season opener Sunday, the early results are promising, MLB.com reports.

"I'm a fan of the stretch, period," manager Mike Matheny said. "And I've been asking this question in the game for 20 years now, having someone prove to me the benefit of the windup. It would be an interesting case study. … In the end, your most important pitches are going to come out of that stretch, so why not take away those extra movements that could cause room for error, simplify without sacrificing stuff? I've never completely understood it."

Rosenthal welcomed the recommendation and now warms up only out of the stretch, reducing his preparation time.

"I felt like it was just a good spring training, working on everything I wanted to," Rosenthal said. "I feel like I have a good game plan of what I want to do with my pitches, giving different looks."

Rosenthal struck out the side just three times in 72 appearances last season.

Cardinals' Rosenthal considering abandoning the windup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal is considering ditching the windup this season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Rosenthal had trouble against the first batter he faced last season, and believes he may be able to get around that by pitching from the stretch. The idea has been discussed, but it's unclear if Rosenthal will follow through with it. 

He did stress that getting ahead of batters is his main goal this season. "Working ahead (in the count). Making quality pitches early in the count. These are the big goals for this year," he said. 

The 24-year-old posted a 3.20 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last season.


Cardinals getting Trevor Rosenthal ready to be 2015 closer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) While other relievers have been told to condition themselves as starters before spring training opens, Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal has been told he will stay in the bullpen, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Rosenthal, who had 45 saves in 2014, has not started since the 2012 season in the minors.

"We need Trevor to prepare to be a closer," manager Mike Matheny said. "This was the first full season that he pitched in that role. There's a learning curve to that, to understanding how to make it through a long season as a closer, and how to have the effectiveness, and how to stay in the strike zone and adjusting your workload as far as what you’re doing in between your appearances."


Matheny: Trevor Rosenthal 'still our closer'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He has surrendered two earned runs on seven hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings this postseason, though Sunday's blown save was his first during the playoffs.
