Royals' Trevor Rosenthal: Contract selected by Royals

Rosenthal's contract was selected by the Royals on Wednesday.

Rosenthal endured a disastrous 2019, his first season back from Tommy John surgery. In 15.1 innings for the Nationals and Tigers, he posted a 13.50 ERA, a 2.41 WHIP and a 30.6 percent walk rate. He's evidently done enough to convince the Royals things have changed, however. The 29-year-old has 121 career saves and could theoretically enter the ninth-inning picture this season if he is indeed back to his previous level of performance. Eric Skoglund was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
