SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - St. Louis Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal was put on the paternity leave list Friday as the club opened a weekend series at San Francisco.

The NL Central leaders recalled right-hander Sam Tuivailala from Triple-A Memphis, and he could be used late in games. Manager Mike Matheny didn’t specify who would close out games in Rosenthal’s absence, saying he might consider matchups and the state of the bullpen.

Rosenthal is 2-1 with a 1.52 ERA in 58 games and earned his 41st save Thursday night at Arizona as the Cardinals won their fifth straight. He began the day with a share of the NL saves lead with Pittsburgh’s Mark Melancon.
