Major League Baseball pitcher Kenny Rosenberg currently pitches for the Los Angeles Angels (MLB). During his college years, he played baseball for California State University, Northridge.
The Angels announced on April 21, 2022, that they had signed left-hander Kenny Rosenberg to their major league roster. Brian Moran, a fellow southpaw, has been assigned in a parallel move.
It is Rosenberg’s first call-up to a major league squad at the age of 26. Following his selection by the Rays in the eighth round of the 2016 MLB Draft out of Cal State Northridge, he played five seasons in the Tampa Bay minor system.
Last year, the 6’1″ pitcher advanced to Triple-A Durham, where he pitched 30 2/3 innings across 14 relief outings.
The Rays chose not to give Rosenberg a shot in the major league despite his 2.35 ERA and stellar strikeout percentage of 35% against the best hitters in the minors.
Additionally, Tampa Bay declined to shield Rosenberg from the minor league round of the Rule 5 draft last winter. He was chosen by the Angels with the eighth choice in that process, and this spring, he made enough of an impression on the front office to put himself on the list for an immediate call-up to the big leagues.
In his lone outing at Triple-A Salt Lake this year, he pitched four innings of one-run ball while striking out five and walking two. In 2019, Rosenberg pitched as a starter all the way to Double-A.
Although he spent the majority of the previous season in the bullpen, he started the aforementioned one game for the Bees so far in 2022.
He’ll probably fill manager Joe Maddon’s multi-inning relief role, teaming up with Aaron Loup, an offseason signing, as the left-handed alternatives in the middle innings.
