St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal was not unavailable in a save situation against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, Sept. 22, and neither was RP Jonathan Broxton. The Cardinals went with RP Kevin Siegrist to lock the game down in the eighth and RP Steve Cishek recorded the save. It was the 95th save of Cishek's career, and he became the sixth Cardinals reliever to record a save in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal has been one of the more consistent closers in the league this year. He has 47 saves, a 1.49 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Continue to run with Rosenthal as your closer to finish out the season.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist threw a perfect ninth inning against the San Diego Padres Sunday, July 5, to pick up his fourth save in six chances. RP Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable to close after having appeared in three straight games.
Fantasy Tip: Siegrist has been impressive in a setup role, posting a 1.45 ERA and striking out 48 in 37 1/3 innings. He should already be owned in leagues that count holds as a category, and he is a must-add player in all formats if Rosenthal were to miss time for any reason.

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist filled in for RP Trevor Rosenthal (biceps) for the second time in two days Tuesday, June 16, against the Minnesota Twins.
Fantasy Tip: Siegrist is worth picking up as a handcuff for Rosenthal owners in NL-only fantasy leagues, or if Rosenthal should ever be forced to the 15-day disabled list.

St. Louis Cardinals RPs Kevin Siegrist (hand, neck, forearm) and John Gast (shoulder) lacked explosiveness on their pitches last year after dealing with various injuries. Siegrist dealt with muscle tears in his hand, nerve pain in his neck and forearm irritation, but he said he's healthy after resting in the offseason. Gast underwent shoulder surgery that included rotator-cuff cleanup. Siegrist could start the year at Class AAA if he's not ready. Both threw bullpen sessions Tuesday, Feb. 17, and felt much better compared to last season.
