Trevor Rosenthal: Cut loose by Detroit
Rosenthal (elbow) was released by the Tigers on Sunday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The veteran right-hander joined the Tigers on a minor-league deal in March but appeared in just three minor-league games before requiring UCL reconstruction revision surgery. Rosenthal last pitched in the majors during shortened 2020 campaign when he had a 1.90 ERA and 11 saves between the Royals and Padres, and he likely won't be back on the mound until at least the second half of 2024....

Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Set for UCL revision surgery
The Tigers announced Wednesday that Rosenthal is scheduled to undergo a UCL reconstruction revision surgery for his right elbow next week, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Rosenthal hasn't pitched in the big leagues since submitting a 1.90 ERA and 0.85 WHIP while saving 11 games in the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign, and with another major arm operation on tap, the 33-year-old looks like he'll have to wait until at least late in the 2024 season to potentially make another appearance in the majors. The right-hander's surgery will be a revision of the Tommy John surgery he underwent in 2017, and he'll presumably be facing a 12-to-14-month recovery timeline if the upcoming procedure goes as anticipated. Rosenthal previously had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in April 2021 and hip surgery in July 2021, then missed significant time in 2022 with hamstring and lat injuries. He joined the Tigers on a minor-league deal in March but suffered a sprained elbow while pitching for Triple-A Toledo in April and then had a setback during his recent rehab appearance with Single-A Lakeland before the UCL revision surgery was deemed necessary....

Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Begins rehab assignment
Rosenthal (elbow) was sent to Low-A Lakeland on Thursday to begin a rehab assignment.
Rosenthal made two appearances with Triple-A Toledo in April before suffering a sprained right elbow. He's evidently been cleared for game action again and should eventually return to Toledo when healthy.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Nursing sprained elbow
Rosenthal is currently sidelined at Triple-A Toledo by a right elbow sprain, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Rosenthal made two appearances with Toledo before getting hurt, allowing one run with a 1:3 K:BB over two innings. He's now going through physical therapy, and it's not clear how long it might be before he's allowed to throw again. Rosenthal had Tommy John surgery back in 2017 and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2020 due to shoulder and hip issues.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Sent to minor-league camp
Detroit reassigned Rosenthal to minor-league camp Monday.
The Tigers held Rosenthal back for most of spring training while he ramped up from the right lat strain that sidelined him late in the 2022 season, but the 32-year-old looks to be healthy now after he made his Grapefruit League debut Sunday versus the Rays. As was to be expected after a lengthy layoff from game action, Rosenthal looked rusty in his appearance, giving up two earned runs on four hits while retiring two of the six batters he faced. Rosenthal has shown the ability to be a dominant reliever at the big-league level when healthy, but he'll first have to regain his pre-injury form at Triple-A Toledo before the Tigers give him a look in their bullpen....

Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Spring debut coming Sunday
Rosenthal is scheduled to pitch in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Rosenthal will make his first appearance of spring training in the final game of Grapefruit League play Sunday. The 32-year-old has been ramped up slowly in camp due to his injury issues over the past few years and won't make the Opening Day roster, but it shouldn't be too long before he joins the big-league club if he is throwing well....

Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Expected to get into spring game
Rosenthal is expected to get into a Grapefruit League game before the end of camp, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Rosenthal has been throwing live batting practice sessions and will have another one Wednesday. Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday that the reliever's velocity and secondary pitches have looked good. Rosenthal is considered healthy, but the team has slow-played him this spring as he comes back from multiple surgeries and missed seasons. He will not be on the Opening Day roster but could conceivably be an option at some point in April.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Throwing live batting practice
Rosenthal (lat) will throw live batting practice Tuesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Rosenthal insists that he's fully recovered from a lat strain he suffered last August, but the Tigers are taking a conservative approach with him this spring after he's missed so much time due to injury. The reliever will throw multiple live batting practice sessions before being cleared for game action and he will begin the season in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Won't be ready for Opening Day
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch conceded Tuesday that it's "not feasible" for Rosenthal (lat) to be ready for Opening Day after the reliever finalized a minor-league contract with Detroit over the weekend, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
According to Evan Woodbery of MLive.com, Rosenthal said he's 100 percent healthy and has fully recovered from the right lat strain he sustained in a minor-league rehab appearance in late August, but due to his late signing, the Tigers won't rush the 32-year-old to be ready for the start of the season. In addition to the lat strain, Rosenthal has dealt with numerous injuries over the past several years, with an August 2017 Tommy John surgery and April 2021 thoracic outlet syndrome surgery being the most notable black marks on his medical record. Despite his checkered history, Rosenthal has shown the ability to be a dominant reliever as recently as 2020, so he makes sense as a low-risk and potentially high-reward signing for Detroit. He'll likely ramp up gradually in spring training and perhaps make a few appearances at Triple-A Toledo to begin the season before the Tigers determine if he's worthy of a spot in the big-league bullpen....

Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Will be ramped up slowly
Rosenthal will be ramped up slowly by the Tigers and is not going to be ready for Opening Day, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Rosenthal is currently healthy, but with the multitude of injuries he's dealt with the last few years the Tigers are going to ease him into things after inking him to a minor-league deal over the weekend. The reliever hasn't appeared in the majors since 2020 due to thoracic outlet and hip surgeries as well as hamstring and lat injuries. The 32-year-old could theoretically work his way into late-inning situations with the Tigers eventually, but he's a poor bet to stay healthy at this point.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Trevor Rosenthal: Signs NRI deal with DET
Rosenthal agreed Saturday to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Rosenthal has not thrown a pitch in the majors since 2020 while dealing with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. The right-hander returns to the Tigers after appearing in 10 games with the club back in 2019 where he had a 7.00 ERA over nine innings. When healthy and at his best, Rosenthal has been a dominant reliever, but injuries and an inability to throw consistent strikes have limited that version considerably since 2017. He'll compete for a relief role with the Tigers, and if he can stay healthy while limiting the self-inflicted damage, he could compete for saves with Detroit this summer.... See More ... See Less
Trevor Rosenthal: Feels healthy heading into '23
Rosenthal (lat) said Thursday that he's back to full health and intends to continue his career in 2023, Jim Hayes of Bally Sports Midwest reports.
The 31-year-old Rosenthal appeared to revive his career during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, when he logged a 1.90 ERA and 0.85 WHIP while saving 11 games across 23 appearances with the Royals and Padres. He inked a one-year, $11 million deal with the Athletics following that season, but he never pitched for the club after undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in April 2021 and then surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip that July. Rosenthal appeared poised to make a late-season return in 2022 after signing with the Giants -- and later being traded to the Brewers -- this summer, but a hamstring injury and then a lat injury prevented him from resurfacing in the majors. Due to his poor health record over the past couple years, Rosenthal may have to settle for an incentive-laden minor-league deal in free agency this winter.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Trevor Rosenthal: Likely out for season
Manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that Rosenthal (hamstring/lat) is "probably" out for the remainder of the season, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Rosenthal spent the last several months recovering from a hamstring injury, but he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment in mid-August. However, he left his rehab appearance Tuesday with a lat injury that will likely cost him the remainder of the season. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander is expected to be available for spring training in 2023 after missing two full seasons.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Trevor Rosenthal: Dealing with lat injury
Rosenthal (hamstring) left his rehab appearance Tuesday with a lat injury and will be re-evaluated Friday, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.
The Brewers picked up Rosenthal from the Giants at the trade deadline, but his unfortunate injury history hasn't changed with his new team. Surgeries to address thoracic outlet syndrome and a hip issue wiped out his entire 2021 season, and he's since dealt with both hamstring and lat troubles. Whether or not he has time to make it back from his latest setback before the end of the season is unclear.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Trevor Rosenthal: Rehab assignment on tap
Rosenthal (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Rosenthal reached 98 mph during a workout Friday and has now been cleared to return to game action with the minor-league club. The right-hander missed the 2021 season after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, and he's been dealing with a hamstring issue since early June. He'll likely require multiple rehab appearances before he's cleared to join the Brewers' bullpen, but the team hopes that he'll be able to return sometime in late August.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Trevor Rosenthal: Traded to Brewers
Rosenthal (hamstring) was traded from the Giants to the Brewers on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
According to Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Brewers GM David Stearns said the team is targeting late August for Rosenthal's debut. The veteran right-hander missed last season after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome and has recently dealt with hamstring soreness after signing with the Giants on July 21....

Giants' Trevor Rosenthal: Signs with Giants
Rosenthal (hamstring) signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Giants on Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Rosenthal dealt with a cramp in his hamstring area following a showcase in early June, and he'll land on the injured list due to the issue. He's rehabbing in Arizona, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return. The right-hander hasn't pitched in the majors since 2020 due to shoulder and hip issues that he dealt with last year. Rosenthal has earned double-digit saves in four of his last five seasons. However, given his lengthy layoff, he'll likely take on some lower-leverage work once cleared to pitch at the big-league level.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Trevor Rosenthal: Won't contribute immediately
Rosenthal (hamstring) is "several weeks" away from appearing in a game with the Giants, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Rosenthal signed with the Giants on Thursday, but his debut with the team is not imminent. He's begun throwing off a mound recently but will need a rehab assignment prior to being activated from the injured list. Depending on how quickly Rosenthal can return, he may be a candidate to pick up saves as manager Gabe Kapler remarked that Rosenthal "is just healthy away from being one of the more effective closers in the game."...

Trevor Rosenthal: Dealing with hamstring cramp
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....

Trevor Rosenthal: Interest picking up again
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.... See More ... See Less
