In a series of roster moves on Tuesday, the St. Louis Cardinals placed veteran reliever Brian Fuentes on the restricted list to let him tend to some personal matters and recalled Trevor Rosenthal from Triple-A Memphis to take his spot before their game with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
St. Louis signed the 37-year old Fuentes to a minor-league contract earlier in the month, and the 6'4 230 left-hander has allowed 6 runs in 5 innings with the Cardinals. He began the season in Oakland, where he had a 6.84 ERA in 25 innings of work before the A's let him go.
This will be Rosenthal's second stint with the majors, as the 22-year old righty made his MLB debut with St. Louis earlier in the season, allowing 2 runs in 4 innings of work. He's pitched 104 innings in both Double-A Springfield and Memphis in 2012, with a combined ERA of 3.12.
