The Cardinals announced on Tuesday afternoon that they are putting recent acquisition Brian Fuentes on the restricted list after he informed the club that he needs to be away from the club because of personal reasons. Rookie Trevor Rosenthal, who was pulled from his start last night, will be called up from AAA-Memphis to take Fuentes’ spot on the roster. A Cardinals press release did not indicate how long Fuentes will be away from the team.
In his only four Major League appearances with the Cardinals, Rosenthal is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA. He has struck out three and walked two batters in four innings.
