Rosenthal (shoulder) is participating in a strength program, but he has yet to resume throwing, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Rosenthal was described as "rapidly progressing" through the strength program by manager Bob Melvin. The next step for Rosenthal will be to play catch and the team has given a loose timetable of a potential mid-August return.
Rosenthal (shoulder) underwent thoracic outlet surgery Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Rosenthal was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, and he'll be sidelined for several months after he elected to have surgery. The right-hander will have a checkup in approximately eight weeks, but he's expected to miss at least 12 weeks, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The Athletics haven't yet named a closer to take Rosenthal's place, but Sergio Romo and Jake Diekman could be the favorites to see save chances over the first half of the season.
The Athletics transferred Rosenthal (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. A decision has yet to be made whether Rosenthal will require thoracic outlet syndrome surgery to address his inflamed right shoulder, but his move to the 60-day IL confirms the Athletics anticipate that he'll require extended rehab time regardless. Rosenthal's long-term absence and uncertain return date make him a drop candidate in shallow leagues or in deeper mixed leagues with limited IL spots -- a disappointing development for fantasy managers who drafted him as a No. 1 or 2 closer. Oakland has yet to settle on a primary option for the ninth inning, but Sergio Romo and Jake Diekman look to be the best bets for saves at the moment.
Rosenthal (shoulder) is considering whether to have surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Rosenthal visited with a surgeon specializing in thoracic outlet syndrome Tuesday, and manager Bob Melvin confirmed Wednesday that surgery is an option for the right-hander. Rosenthal is expected to make a decision in the coming days, but the surgery usually has a recovery timeline of at least 12 weeks. Sergio Romo and Jake Diekman should continue to be in the mix for save chances while Rosenthal is sidelined.
Rosenthal (shoulder) visited vascular surgeon Dr. Gregory Pearl -- a specialist in treating thoracic outlet syndrome -- in Dallas on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The 33-year-old landed on the 10-day injured list on Opening Day with right shoulder inflammation, but it appears he could be dealing with a much more serious injury. It remains unclear whether the right-hander is expected to require a procedure, and the A's are expected to provide more information Wednesday. Rosenthal will face a lengthy absence if he's dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome and needs surgery.
