Rosenthal struck out all three batters during a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is posting excellent numbers from a setup role with a 2.66 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 15.6 K/9. Rosenthal has also collected a win, three saves and nine holds. Seung Hwan Oh has converted each of his past five save opportunities and settled in after a rough start to the season, so Rosenthal projects to only see sparing save chances going forward.

Rosenthal (1-2) gave up an earned run on a hit and a sacrifice fly in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The hard-throwing setup man couldn't preserve the 2-2 tie, as the inning-opening RBI double he gave up to Anthony Rizzo ended up coming back to bite him when Jason Heyward plated him with a sacrifice fly. Rosenthal has largely been effective, with Friday's run representing only the third he'd surrendered since April 30. He continues to be candidate for plenty of hold opportunities, while also seeing the occasional save chance when closer Seung-Hwan Oh is unavailable.

Rosenthal (arm) pitched one scoreless inning in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal wasn't available to pitch Friday due to arm soreness, but was used in Saturday's 13-inning outing. During his single frame, Rosenthal struck out one batter and didn't allow any hits. Now that he's back in full health, look for Rosenthal to continue his role as one of the Cardinals' go-to setup relievers.

Rosenthal was not available during Friday's game against the Giants due to soreness in his arm, Derrick Goold of the St. Loius Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal didn't appeared too worried by the issue, and said it was ultimately the medical staff's decision to hold him out. He also noted that his arm was feeling better Saturday, but didn't note if he would be available for the nighttime contest against the Giants. While resting Rosenthal appears to be precautionary, he should be considered day-to-day until the Cardinals update his status.

Rosenthal was charged with his first blown save of the season in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox, giving up two earned runs on a hit and a walk. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Rosenthal took over in the eighth and was charged with serving as a bridge to Seung-Hwan Oh while protecting a 4-2 lead. He started the frame impressively enough by getting Mookie Betts on a swinging strikeout before walking Dustin Pedroia and subsequently giving up two runs on a Xander Bogaerts triple and Andrew Benintendi sacrifice fly. The stumble snapped a seven-appearance scoreless streak for the former closer, who also hadn't yielded a hit in his previous five trips to the mound. Rosenthal did notch a pair of strikeouts for the third straight outing, and his 27:4 K:BB makes him particularly valuable in both the strikeout and WHIP categories.

Rosenthal fired a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Cubs, recording two strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The former closer now has an excellent 25:3 K:BB over 14.1 innings, numbers that are complemented by an equally impressive 1.88 ERA and 0.91 WHIP. Rosenthal retains plenty of fantasy value in leagues that account for holds, as he's racked up five in that category to go along with three saves in as many opportunities.

Rosenthal (1-1) fired a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Marlins, issuing a walk.

EDGE Analysis

The former closer and current set-up man continues to thrive in his role, with Tuesday's effort representing his fourth straight scoreless appearance and sixth overall in the last seven. Rosenthal has also compiled three holds and three saves in addition to Tuesday's win and boasts an excellent 20:3 K:BB across 11.1 innings. He offers solid fantasy value in a variety of categories, and the fact manager Mike Matheny affords him occasional save opportunities serves to enhance his appeal further.

Rosenthal struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to pick up his third save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Seung Hwan Oh was shaky Monday in taking the loss but has hardly been overworked lately, and with Rosenthal notching saves in three of his last six appearances it's looking increasingly like the Cards' closer situation is turning into a timeshare. The 26-year-old fireballer has recorded double-digit saves in three straight seasons, and if this arrangement continues he should easily be able to make it four in a row in 2017.

Rosenthal (0-1) gave up an earned run on two hits and two walks over an inning in Sunday's 5-4 loss. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The former closer was on the hook for the loss after unraveling in his sole inning of work. Rosenthal dug himself a hole by issuing two walks and giving up a single before recording an out in the eighth, and he then yielded a go-ahead RBI single to Joey Votto. It was Rosenthal's third one-run outing of the season, and the pair of free passes he handed out were his first on the season. On the positive side, the 26-year-old notched two strikeouts for the fifth straight appearance, giving him 15 whiffs over just 7.1 innings.

Rosenthal nailed down his second save of the season in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Blue Jays in the nightcap of a double-header, firing a clean ninth inning and recording two strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The former closer was back in his element with Seung Hwan Oh unavailable after having closed out the matinee of the twin bill. Rosenthal flashed pinpoint control, throwing 12 of 13 pitches for strikes while steamrolling Ryan Goins, Justin Smoak and Devon Travis. Rosenthal has been effective while primarily serving as a setup option thus far this season, but he's also been perfect in both of his save opportunities. He continues to confound plenty of hitters, as he's notched a pair of strikeouts in each of his last four appearances and boasts a sparkling 13:0 K:BB.
