Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Needs hip surgery, out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Resumes baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (shoulder) resumed baseball activities Tuesday and could start a throwing program sometime later this week, Justice delos Santos of reports.

Rosenthal underwent thoracic outlet surgery April 8 and was placed on the 60-day injured list. The reliever began a strength program earlier in June and is now very close to throwing again. Rosenthal still has many hurdles to jump before he's able to slot into the back end of the Oakland bullpen, but a mid-August return remains a decent possibility as of now.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Going through strength program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (shoulder) is participating in a strength program, but he has yet to resume throwing, Martin Gallegos of 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.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (shoulder) underwent thoracic outlet surgery Thursday, Martin Gallegos of 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.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Could require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Could have thoracic outlet syndrome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: More info coming Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The A's will release more information regarding Rosenthal's shoulder injury Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Rosenthal saw a doctor in Dallas on Tuesday so that he could be evaluated after his initial treatment to see what the next step should be. For now, it seems like a bit of a committee at the back of the bullpen, with Sergio Romo and Jake Diekman the most likely closing options while Rosenthal is out.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Doctor visit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (shoulder) was slated to be evaluated by a doctor Monday, the Associated Press reports.

The Athletics' projected closer remains in a holding pattern with respect to his regular-season debut as he continues to deal with shoulder inflammation. Manager Bob Melvin stated he expected to have more insight into Rosenthal's current progress shortly after the exam, so further word could be divulged at some point Tuesday.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: No MRI yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (shoulder) has not had an MRI yet, and the team hopes that medication he has taken will resolve the injury, Alex Coffey of The Athletic reports.

Rosenthal was originally placed on the injured list after struggling to throw on back-to-back days. His injury worsened after his last throwing session, at which point the team decided to sit him down. It takes six days for the medication Rosenthal received to become effective, so we should get some more clarity about his timeline next week.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Hits IL with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal is dealing with shoulder inflammation and will begin the season on the 10-day injured list, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Rosenthal missed time in March due to a groin strain, but an entirely different issue will send him to the injured list to open the year. It's certainly not the start the Athletics wanted from their prized offseason acquisition, who joined them on a one-year, $11 million deal in February. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss. Jake Diekman, J.B. Wendelken and Lou Trivino could be among the top options for saves until he returns.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Gives up run in spring, team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (groin) tossed an inning in relief in his Cactus League debut Wednesday against the Royals, giving up a run on two hits and a walk while striking out one.

The results weren't particularly strong for Rosenthal in his first game of the spring, but the Athletics were likely just happy to see their projected closer back on the mound after he had been slowed by a minor groin strain shortly after reporting to camp. According to Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle, Rosenthal pumped in 10 of his 20 pitches for strikes during the outing, tossing eight fastballs that sat in the 95-to-97 mile-per-hour range. He'll ideally iron things out in his final handful of appearances of the spring, but Rosenthal still shapes up as one of the top fantasy options among closers.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Likely to pitch in Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (groin) is expected to make a relief appearance in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Royals, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Rosenthal's strained groin has apparently checked out fine since he resumed throwing off a mound last week, clearing the way for him to make his spring debut. After signing a one-year, $11 million deal in February coming off a 2020 campaign in which he accrued a 1.90 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 38:8 K:BB in 23.2 innings, Rosenthal is expected to step in as the Athletics' new closer following the offseason departure of Liam Hendriks.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Throws another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (groin) threw a successful bullpen session Sunday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Rosenthal has been brought along slowly recently due to a minor groin strain, but he's now thrown successful bullpens twice in the last four days. The right-hander will rest again for two days but should make his next appearance in a Cactus League game.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (groin) threw a bullpen session Thursday and will throw to hitters Sunday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Rosenthal has been dealing with a minor groin strain for the past few days, but he was only shut down from throwing very briefly. He appears to be back on track in his throwing program and should still have time to get up to speed by Opening Day, barring setbacks.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal (groin) will resume throwing Tuesday and could be back on a mound by the end of the week, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Rosenthal had been shut down for two days, but his groin strain doesn't appear to be particularly worrisome. The fact that he's already throwing again bodes very well for his readiness for Opening Day, though the Athletics will likely remain cautious with him for now to avoid setbacks.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Battling minor groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal is dealing with a minor groin strain, Martin Gallegos of reports.

It's never good to see a pitcher battling an injury during camp, but at least this particular one isn't an arm problem and appears to be minor. Rosenthal hasn't thrown in the last two days and remains without a timetable to get back on the mound, but this could just be a case of the team being extra cautious with a prized offseason acquisition with Opening Day still more than three weeks away. If Rosenthal does wind up needing a trip to the injured list, Jake Diekman and J.B. Wendelken could be next in line for saves, with Lou Trivino and Sergio Romo also potentially in the mix.

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Shows off velocity in first bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal, whose one-year deal with the Athletics was officially announced Monday, was very impressive during his first bullpen session with the team Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

The flame-throwing veteran drew rave reviews for the session, showing off his trademark velocity on multiple occasions and leading manager Bob Melvin to jokingly remark he "thought" he saw the ball "a couple of times" while mostly just hearing it smack the catcher's glove. The strong start for Rosenthal is naturally highly encouraging for a player the Athletics plan to rely on as their full-time closer after allowing Liam Hendriks to walk this offseason. Rosenthal should have no competition for saves going into the season if Melvin's unequivocal endorsements are any indication, with Oakland's skipper labeling him "a true closer" and adding "with Trevor here now, we know that the ninth inning looks like."

Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Gets $11 million from Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal signed a one-year, $11 million contract with Oakland on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Rosenthal will wind up making the second-highest average annual value out of this class of free agent relievers, trailing only departed Athletics closer Liam Hendriks. Rosenthal should slide right into Hendriks' former role, assuming he proves he really is the same guy who recorded a 1.90 ERA last year and a 2.99 ERA over his first six seasons and not the guy who posted a 13.50 ERA in 2019. That terrible campaign can be explained away by the fact that it was his first year back from Tommy John surgery, so there's little reason to treat him as significantly more risky than most relievers. Not only did he strike out an incredible 41.8 percent of opposing batters last season, he also walked just 8.8 percent, well below his career walk rate of 11.3 percent.

Trevor Rosenthal: Mets circling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosenthal and the Mets could be close to reaching a deal, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

The flamethrowing right-hander regained his late-inning swagger last season, saving 11 of 12 games between the Royals and Padres with a 1.90 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 38:8 K:BB over 23.2 innings, but so far this offseason Rosenthal hasn't been able to parlay that performance into a contract. The Mets wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for his fantasy value with Edwin Diaz locked into the closer role, but Diaz has faltered before, and with Seth Lugo (elbow) potentially set to miss the beginning of the season, the team could use another high-leverage arm.
