Cardinals state that Trevor Rosenthal remains the team's closer
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Trevor Rosenthal will continue in his role as the team's closer, indicated manager Mike Matheny.
"We need him. We need him right," said Matheny. "However we’ve got to do that we will. But right now (we’re) not making any major statement about what our plans are." Rosenthal has failed to overcome inconsistent play during the 2016 season, with the last week getting particularly bad.
On the season as a whole, Rosenthal holds a 4.91 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, and 31.13 strikeout percentage across 22 innings. Seung Hwan Oh and Kevin Siegrist are both worth stashing in deeper leagues. Our models currently expect Rosenthal to record a 3.55 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 26.70 strikeout percentage in 35 2/3 innings over the remainder of the season, assuming he holds down the role.
