Trevor Rosenthal allowed an unearned run over two innings pitched to earn the win on Sunday against the Mariners.
It's the first win of the season for Rosenthal, who has been operating as the Padres' closer since a midseason trade. He has a 2.08 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP in 21 appearances this year.
Trevor Rosenthal slammed the door on a 3-1 Padres win over the Giants on Sunday.
Rosenthal now has three saves since coming over from the Royals, which gives him 10 on the year. Established as the Padres' ninth-inning man, Rosenthal needs to be owned in every fantasy league down the stretch.
Trevor Rosenthal earned the save on Wednesday against Colorado, needing just 13 pitches to slam the door on a 5-3 victory.
That makes two straight save opportunities for Rosenthal, who would appear to be the ninth-inning guy in San Diego for the rest of 2020. This will allow Drew Pomeranz to stay in a setup role, which is the way the Padres intended things to operate back when Kirby Yates was fully healthy. Rosenthal remains must-own following his midseason trade from Kansas City.
Trevor Rosenthal tossed a scoreless ninth in Sunday's 5-3 win over the A's to pick up the save for the Padres.
It's notable since Drew Pomeranz was used in the eighth inning of this one. Perhaps Rosenthal will fill the original closer's role left vacant by Kirby Yates' season-ending injury. The Padres' bullpen is one to monitor moving forward but perhaps Rosenthal is the ninth-inning guy after all.
According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, the Padres are acquiring reliever Trevor Rosenthal from the Royals. The Royals are receiving two prospects in return.
Rosenthal to the Padres makes sense since they lost closer Kirby Yates to a season-ending injury. Also, Drew Pomeranz hit the 10-day injured list recently, so the Padres are adding bullpen depth. With the Royals, Rosenthal recorded seven saves and 21 strikeouts in 13.2 innings.
