Rosenthal (shoulder) will resume throwing next week, Frank Cusumano of KSDK Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal has made good progress in his recovery from a sore shoulder and is just a few days away from resuming throwing. He still has several steps to go in the process, but the Cardinals are hopeful that he will be able to rejoin the big club before the end of the month.

The Cardinals are hoping that Rosenthal (shoulder) will be back before the end of August, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A visit to an orthopedic specialist Tuesday yielded favorable results, as Rosenthal was cleared of any structural damage. However, he was treated with a PRP injection and will remain shut down for up to a week as the treatment takes effect, before ultimately resuming a throwing program. Seung Hwan Oh has been excellent since taking over in the ninth inning for the Cardinals and Rosenthal will be hard pressed to earn the closer job back.

Rosenthal had his follow-up exam on Tuesday and no structural damage was found, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal will rest for 5-7 days before he throws next. Rosenthal, who is eligible to return on August 9, will probably need more time to fully recover his shoulder. Rosenthal was removed from his closer's role in late June due to poor performance.

The Cardinals placed Rosenthal on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not clear when Rosenthal first started experiencing soreness, but he will now be sidelined at least a couple weeks while recovering from his setback. He has pitched mainly in middle relief of late, so his absence should not have much of an effect on the Cardinals' current late-inning bullpen roles.

Rosenthal (hamstring) pitched one-third of an inning in Friday's loss to the Marlins and allowed an earned run while giving up one hit and posting a 1:1 K:BB.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal recovered from his hamstring injury during the All-Star break and was able to get back on the mound Friday, but he allowed an earned run for the third time in five outings, and saw his WHIP rise to 2.04. He has not been given a ninth-inning save opportunity since June 24, and with the way he is pitching lately, it seems unlikely he will see one anytime soon.

Rosenthal (hamstring) won't have to spend time on the DL, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal's MRI revealed that there was no tear in his hamstring and that he'd only experienced discomfort. Team management reported that Rosenthal shouldn't miss any further playing time and that there are no concerns about the overall health of his hamstring. However, while Rosenthal is healthy, he's been seeing fewer save opportunities, as the Cardinals have opted to use Seung Hwan Oh as their closer in recent outings.

Rosenthal (hamstring) left the team to get an MRI on Saturday, Jim Hayes of Fox Sports Midwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal, who left Friday's game against the Brewers with hamstring spasms, will get an MRI to diagnose the problem. He'll likely miss two to three games as the MRI is conducted and he nurses the injury. The 26-year-old reliever has given up earned runs in six of his last 14 appearances, compiling a 9.90 ERA and 2.80 WHIP during that time.

Rosenthal left Friday's game with hamstring spasms, ESPN's Mark Saxon reports.

EDGE Analysis

He is not scheduled for an MRI, but the trainers won't know the severity of the spasms until Saturday. Rosenthal has allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six in six innings since being removed from the closer's role in late June.

Manager Mike Matheny informed Rosenthal on Saturday that he will be removed from the closer role, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Matheny stuck by Rosenthal through the highs and lows for nearly two and a half years, but after another blown save Friday, the team decided it was time to make a change. Rosenthal gave up three runs on two hits and a walk while failing to record an out against Seattle, the second time in four appearances he failed to retire a batter. Seung Hwan Oh appears primed to take over in the ninth inning but lefty Kevin Siegrist could always vulture some saves.

For the second straight night, Rosenthal picked up a stressful save, his 14th of the year, against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

After a shaky performance on Monday, Rosenthal gave up a one-out single to Addison Russell and walked Javier Baez with two outs before pinch-hitter Matt Szczur grounded into a force play to end the game. It would be an understatement to say that Rosenthal has been a bit off as of late. Over his last six appearances, the closer has given up 10 hits and four walks in four innings. However, he's still 14-for-16 in save chances this year, and owners shouldn't fret too much about his recent slump.
