Athletics' Trevor Rosenthal: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Athletics transferred Rosenthal (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.A decision has yet to be made whether Rosenthal will require thoracic outlet syndrome surgery to address his inflamed right shoulder, but his move to the 60-day IL confirms the Athletics anticipate that he'll require extended rehab time regardless. Rosenthal's long-term absence and uncertain return date make him a drop candidate in shallow leagues or in deeper mixed leagues with limited IL spots -- a disappointing development for fantasy managers who drafted him as a No. 1 or 2 closer. Oakland has yet to settle on a primary option for the ninth inning, but Sergio Romo and Jake Diekman look to be the best bets for saves at the moment.
