St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation Tuesday, July 26.
Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal was recently ousted from the closer role, which eliminated his fantasy value in the majority of settings. Now, he's officially replaceable in all fantasy leagues. Current closer Seung-Hwan Oh has been lights out all season, after all.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal will not be used in high-leverage situations, according to manager Mike Matheny. RP Jonathan Broxton and RP Matthew Bowman could be used in such situations for now.
Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal has always been a closer that keeps you on the edge of your seat before ultimately nailing down the save. However, something is different this season. His offspeed stuff and fastball command haven't been good. Hitters have looked for the fastball and made hard contact. He has a 5.46 ERA, a 1.98 WHIP and 45 K's in 31 1/3 innings. He has only allowed three homers, which signals he may not be far off. However, his changeup and/or curveball have to return for him to be successful. That may not happen this season. It's tough to drop a guy with a 12.93 K/9, a career high, so stash him and hope he finds what he's lacking. Broxton and Bowman offer little in fantasy for now.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal (hamstring) underwent a precautionary MRI on Saturday, July 9, after leaving his team's game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, July 8, with a spasm.
Fantasy Tip: It is going from bad to worse with Rosenthal, who was removed from the closer role after a horrid June. He can be dropped in most normal-sized leagues. His replacement, Seung-Hwan Oh, has been dominant for most of the first half and should be added in whatever leagues he might still be available. Oh has picked up a pair of saves since Rosenthal's demotion.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal (hamstring) was removed from the ninth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, July 8, due to spasms in his hamstring. He walked one and allowed a run in 1/3 of an inning and was tagged with the loss.
Fantasy Tip: As if things weren't already bad enough for Rosenthal, the erstwhile closer has a leg injury. The team says he won't undergo an MRI, but they don't yet know the severity of the injury. Rosenthal should be jettisoned in all standard leagues, and those in deeper mixed can cut bait as well if they need a roster spot.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal failed to record an out in a relief appearance against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, July 3, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk.
Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal seems to have lost all confidence, and there is a good chance he never reclaims the closer's job.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal is out as closer and will be used in a different role going forward, manager Mike Matheny said Saturday, June 25. RP Seung-Hwan Oh, RP Kevin Siegrist and RP Jonathan Broxton will all see save chances, according to Matheny.
Fantasy Tip: Oh has been outstanding this year and is your best bet if you are hunting for saves. However, Siegrist and Broxton could also be worth speculative adds in what is likely to be a messy situation for fantasy owners to deal with.
