RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Rosenthal had a terrific first full season with the Cardinals, posting 29 holds while striking out an impressive 108 batters in just 75.1 innings pitched. His xFIP (2.34) indicates he was even better than his ERA shows. Rosenthal is a heavy fastball pitcher who averages around 97 mph on his heater but in 2013 began using his changeup much more, and with very good results. Rosenthal was inserted into the closer's role for the final weeks of the 2013 season and into the playoffs where he proved plenty capable for the job. He'll head into 2014 as one of the top closers in baseball and in fantasy, likely a top five option in all league formats.

2013

Lost among the Shelby Millers and Carlos Martinezes and Michael Wachas in the St. Louis system is the unheralded Rosenthal, who at 22 already has 19 MLB appearances under his belt. Although Rosenthal only appeared as a reliever for the Cardinals, he was used exclusively as a starter in the minors and will likely get a chance at a rotation spot in the bigs this spring. His numbers at three stops last year: (131 IP, 92 H, 129:49 K:BB, 2.95 ERA) indicate that he deserves that shot. Consider him to be a nice sleeper if he's able to secure a starting job with a good showing in spring training.
