2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

While it wasn't without its bumps, Rosenthal's 2014 season was still pretty impressive for a first-time closer. He finished fourth in baseball with 45 saves and seventh among regular closers with 87 strikeouts. What has to be encouraging for his owners and the Cardinals is that despite having some occasional dust-ups, Rosenthal never lost all control as so many new closers do. The few bad runs he had last season were just long enough to get some whispers about a possible change but short enough that a change was never necessary. His 1.41 WHIP reflects some of those bad runs, as he did have some trouble with the free passes in 2014, something he'll have to work on moving forward. Rosenthal still proved capable of handling the role and should only get better in 2015. With the Cardinals expected to again be one of the top teams in the NL, Rosenthal should have no problem eclipsing 40 saves if he stays healthy, and could very easily join the ranks of Craig Kimbrel and Kenley Jansen if he can turn some of those walks into strikeouts.

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.
