St Louis Cardinals Bullpen Details

Solidifying his grip as one of the National League's best closers, Trevor Rosenthal should be clockwork again for the Cardinals in 2016. Jordan Walden, Kevin Siegrest and Jon Broxton are overqualified setup men, here, and any of them could fill-in well, should Rosenthal suffer injury. Siegrest, in particular, was unhittable as fill-in closer last season. Deeper in this very deep stable, IFA signee Seung-Hwan Oh, a very capable closer himself, may struggle to get even seventh inning work, at least in April.

Closer Watch

Scouting Book Home Page

Closer Watch key and words of caution: Bolded names are best-bets to be closing for the immediate future; other pitchers are sorted from backup options right now (usually setup or short-relievers) to less-likely or future candidates. The order is hand-chosen and updated only every week or two based on who we would bet on, ourselves, for the future. Data is much more current than commentary, and readers may draw their own different conclusions based on the data displayed here or elsewhere. Game by game graphs show up to ten most recent outings for each pitcher, scored from poor (one red dot) to excellent (four green dots), based on counting stats, with special bonus points for saves and holds. Closers with more than a couple of red dots probably won't be closing much longer. Rate stats are shown for up to ten of a pitcher's most recent outings. Players whose most recent outing was in the minor leagues are labeled with the level of that most recent appearance. A gray star indicates a prospect who is also tracked as a prospect at ScoutingBook.com. Disabled List status is courtesy published MLB information and may lag behind conventional wisdom by a day or two. Pitchers who have thrown two, three or more days in a row, including yesterday, are flagged as 'Tired'. Data auto-publishes several times per day from Scouting Book's own data feeds, but can lag behind reality, and sometimes gets further delayed by gremlins, especially when feeding after midnight.
