Rosenthal suffered a cramp in his hamstring area at the end of his showcase Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Rosenthal reached 95-96 mph during his showcase that was attended by 14 teams, but he's dealing with a hamstring injury afterward. The right-hander has reportedly drawn interest from several clubs over the last few months, and he could be in contact with some teams after Tuesday's showcase as long as his injury isn't a significant concern.
Rosenthal will throw in a showcase Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. It was reported a few months prior that several organizations were showing interest in the veteran right-hander, but he's yet to put pen to paper. Even if he were to sign a contract in the near future, he would likely need some time to ramp up his throwing before having a chance to pitch in the majors. A timeline for Rosenthal's return to the big leagues should become more clear if he officially signs a deal.
Rosenthal (hip) has drawn heavy interest from organizations in free agency and could soon sign with a team, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Rosenthal missed the entire 2021 season after undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in April and then another procedure in July to repair a torn labrum in his hip, but he should be at or near full health as Opening Day approaches. Because he's far removed from his last competitive action and hasn't been working out in a team environment during spring training, Rosenthal will likely require some ramp-up time when he eventually signs, but if he looks healthy during his throwing sessions, he could end up settling into a key bullpen role no matter where he lands. Rosenthal was one of MLB's top closers during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign, compiling a 1.90 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 38:8 K:BB across 23.2 innings while notching 11 saves in 12 chances between stops with the Royals and Padres.
Rosenthal will soon be re-examined by the doctor that performed his surgery for a torn hip labrum earlier this year, the Associated Press reports. The veteran closer was never able to throw a pitch for the Athletics after signing a one-year deal during the offseason. Rosenthal turned 31 in late May and will be coming off a major procedure going into next season, so it remains to be seen whether the Oakland or any other organization will be inclined to make anything more than a modest financial commitment.
Rosenthal (shoulder) will undergo surgery next week to repair a torn labrum in his hip and miss the rest of the 2021 season, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports. The veteran right-hander has been on the recovery track since undergoing thoracic outlet surgery in early April, but he won't return during the second half of the season due to the hip procedure. Rosenthal inked a one-year, $11 million deal with the A's during the offseason but won't end up taking the mound for the team in 2021.
