  • Brewers Acquire Trevor Rosenthal from Giants

    What a whirlwind of a few days it’s been for the Milwaukee Brewers. After dealing star closer Josh Hader to the San Diego Padres for Taylor Rogers, they then acquired Matt Bush, and have rounded out a new pen trio with the Giants Trevor Rosenthal.

    Just a handful of days ago, in late July, the San Francisco Giants signed Trevor Rosenthal to a one-year deal worth $4.5 million. He hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2020, and at the time of his signing, manager Gabe Kapler said he was multiple weeks away while recovering from a hamstring strain.

    Rosenthal’s list of injuries has been substantial of late. Despite signing a contract with the Oakland Athletics before the 2021 season, he underwent Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, and then went under the knife again to repair a torn labrum in his right hip. When healthy, Rosenthal has been a very good closer with high-velocity stuff.

    Back in 2020 the Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres saw Rosenthal pitch to the tune of a 1.90 ERA across 23 2/3 innings. His 14.5 K/9 was a career best, and there’s never been a question as to whether he can punch big leaguers out.

    Joining the Brewers, Rosenthal will continue working back from his hamstring injury and should be a back-end bullpen option to go along with the newly acquired talent. He brings a veteran presence along with Postseason experience for a club looking to hold serve atop the NL Central division.
