Cardinals make qualifying offer to Lance Lynn, release Trevor Rosenthal

Cardinals make qualifying offer to Lance Lynn, release Trevor Rosenthal”

Trevor Rosenthal, the fireballing but oft-injured St. Louis reliever, is a Cardinal no more.

This comes as no surprise because Rosenthal underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and will miss the entire 2018 season as a result.

A right-hander, Lynn hadn't pitched for St. Louis since the end of the 2015 season.

The qualifying offer to Lance Lynn is for one year and $17.4 million, which is the mean salary of the league's 125 highest-paid players. It came after he reclaimed the closer's job from Seung Hwan Oh earlier last season after Oh struggled.

Having a draft pick attached to his signing may suppress Lynn's market value somewhat, but given the relatively shallow market for starting pitching, he is expected to secure a lucrative deal. He would have been a free agent next year. He is expected to reject the $17.4 million offer and become a free agent, though he has until November 16 to decide.

The team also outrighted infielder Alex Mejia and catcher Alberto Rosario off the team's 40-man major league roster.
