Rookie Trevor Rosenthal opens spring training as the closer ahead of Jason Motte, who’ll be eased back into the mix coming off reconstructive elbow surgery that sidelined him all of 2013.

Mozeliak said it was “hard to imagine” a better closer than Rosenthal the way he finished the year.

The Cardinals know Rosenthal wants to be a starter but they’re loaded in that department with rookie Michael Wacha near the top of the list, right behind 19-game winner Adam Wainwright, coming off a phenomenal postseason.

Also in the mix are Joe Kelly and Lance Lynn, along with youngsters Miller and Carlos Martinez, plus Matheny thought Jaime Garcia was almost ready to return from shoulder surgery at the end of the season.
