|Cardinals Place Fuentes on Restricted List
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have placed relief pitcher Brian Fuentes on the restricted list after the left-hander told the team he needed time off due to personal reasons.
Right-hander Trevor Rosenthal was recalled from Triple-A Memphis for Tuesday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The 37-year-old Fuentes signed as a minor league free agent last month and has appeared in six games, totaling five innings. The four-time All-Star closer had been released by Oakland.
The 22-year-old Rosenthal was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in four games covering four innings with the Cardinals last month and made his major league debut on July 18. Since being optioned back to Memphis on Aug. 1, Rosenthal had 13 strikeouts in 10 innings.
