RP - OAK - IL60
Oakland Athletics pitcher Trevor Rosenthal (hip) will undergo surgery next week to repair a torn labrum in his hip and will miss the rest of the season.
Rosenthal underwent thoracic surgery in April has been sidelined since. He will undergo hip surgery and is out for the rest of the season. Rosenthal signed a one-year deal with Oakland but was unable to make his debut for the A’s in 2021. Fantasy managers can move on from Rosenthal if they haven't already.
A's RHP Trevor Rosenthal (shoulder) is progressing "rapidly" through his strength program, per manager Bob Melvin.
Rosenthal still hasn't played catch yet, but the hope right now is that he can return sometime in August. The right-handed reliever signed a one-year deal with Oakland over the offseason but hasn't pitched at all this season.
Athletics reliever Trevor Rosenthal officially underwent surgery today. The operation "involved the removal of his first rib, a pec minor release, and scalene release," according to a release from the Athletics.
Rosenthal, who officially landed on the 60-day IL today, underwent the surgery in Dallas under the expertise of Dr. Gregory Pearl. The right-hander will recover for roughly eight weeks before returning to Texas for a follow-up visit. Rosenthal agreed to a one-year, $11 million deal following an incredible bounce-back year in 2020.
The Athletics' bullpen was dealt a major blow on Thursday as reliever Trevor Rosenthal landed on the 60-day injured list. He's been dealing with a shoulder injury. Thoracic outlet surgery seems like the most likely outcome for the 30-year-old right-hander. Such a procedure would hold him out for at least three months.
The timeline on Rosenthal has only gotten bleaker. He was initially dealing with minor aches and pains but pitched through the ailment. He then landed on the 10-day injured list without a timetable for return. Days later, he visited a specialist in Dallas who specializes in thoracic outlet surgery. Now, he's out for quite some time. It's tough news for the Athletics and Rosenthal, who agreed to a one-year, $11 million deal following an incredible bounce-back year in 2020.
A's manager Bob Melvin told reporters on Wednesday that "surgery is on the table" for Trevor Rosenthal because of his shoulder injury.
It was reported on Tuesday that Rosenthal had seen a doctor who specializes in surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, so Melvin's comments aren't exactly out of left field. Unfortunately, if Rosenthal does need surgery, it will almost certainly sideline him for the season and, as we've seen with pitchers like Matt Harvey, could have a significant impact on his career. Reading the tea leaves, it seems increasingly unlikely that Rosenthal will pitch this year, and his fantasy managers should try to secure either Jake Diekman or Sergio Romo to accrue at least some saves from Oakland.
