Struggling Nationals reliever Trevor Rosenthal has agreed to go to extended spring training in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The 28-year-old right-hander was placed on the 10-day injured list on April 26 with a viral infection. Rosenthal (0-1) has appeared in seven games with Washington, pitching to a 36.00 ERA. He did not record an out until his fifth appearance.

“There’s no timetable,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Monday. “We just have to get him built up again.”cheap nfl nike jerseys from china7

Rosenthal — an All-Star in 2015 with St. Louis — underwent Tommy John surgery in 2017 and missed all of last season.

“Health-wise, everything feels good, just ironing out some timing and getting just really the reps in to let my body figure it out,” Rosenthal said.

Signed in the offseason as a potential setup man for closer Sean Doolittle, Rosenthal has walked nine of the 28 batters he has faced and has thrown five wild pitches.

Washington entered Monday with the second-worst bullpen ERA in the majors at 6.57, ahead of only Baltimore.
