JUPITER, Fla. — After ending Tuesday’s live batting practice early due to tightness in his right groin, Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal returned to the mound on Sunday and threw without issue during a 25-pitch bullpen session.

The injury was never considered serious, and relievers don’t typically need as much spring game action as starters and position players. Rosenthal has ample time to get himself prepared for the opening of the 2014 regular season.

“I was lucky that it wasn’t too [serious an injury] and that it was early,” the hard-throwing right-hander told reporters on Sunday in Cardinals camp. “I feel like I’m pretty close to being right on track.”

Rosenthal, 23, owns a stellar 2.66 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 12.2 K/9 in 98 major league innings.

He also has a 0.00 ERA, 0.54 WHIP, and 33 strikeouts in 20 1/3 postseason frames.
