  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Tosses quality start Saturday

    Flaherty allowed one run on seven hits and one walk while striking out four batters over seven innings in a no-decision against Cleveland on Saturday.

    Flaherty has struggled mightily with free passes this season -- he entered Saturday with 33 walks over 51 innings -- so it was a a big step in the right direction for him to walk just one batter in the outing. The improved control helped the right-hander tie his season high with seven innings, and he picked up just his third quality start over 11 appearances. Flaherty induced only six swinging strikes and posted a modest four punchouts, but this was nonetheless one of his best starts of the campaign. Though his 4.81 season ERA is nothing to celebrate, it's trending in the right direction again after ballooning to 6.29 following a 2.1 inning, 10-run blowup against the Angels on May 4.

  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Control issues pop up again

    Flaherty allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Flaherty has walked four or more batters in four of his 10 starts this season, but he'd done so only once in his last six outings. The Dodgers were able to run up his pitch count quickly, and he exited with 103 pitches (61 strikes) while failing to qualify for the win. The right-hander is now at a 5.29 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 54:33 K:BB through 51 innings this year. He's projected to make his next start on the road in Cleveland.

  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Enjoys best start of campaign

    Flaherty (3-4) earned the win in Monday's 18-1 victory over Milwaukee, pitching seven scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and two walks while striking out 10 batters.

    Flaherty had been struggling mightily entering Monday, allowing 18 runs (17 earned) and walking eight batters over his previous 12 innings. He turned things around by limiting the Brewers to three singles and two walks while posting a season-high 10 punchouts. Flaherty racked up 17 swinging strikes in the outing, and he completed seven frames for the first time this season en route to just his second quality start. While this was a very positive start for the veteran, he still has an unimpressive 5.24 ERA on the season. He'll try to build upon this outing in his next start, which is lined up to come against the Dodgers this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Another wild performance

    Flaherty allowed three runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out three over five innings in a no-decision versus the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Flaherty has walked five or more batters in three of his eight starts this season, though he'd seemingly gotten the issue under control recently. He avoided taking a third straight loss Tuesday, but it was still a less-than-impressive outing. The right-hander is at a 6.18 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 39:27 K:BB across 39.1 innings. He's tentatively projected for a tough home start versus the Brewers next week.

  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Gets green light to start Tuesday

    Flaherty (hand) is listed as the Cardinals' probable starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

    Though Flaherty was struck on his left hand by a comebacker in his most recent start last Thursday against the Angels, he didn't suffer any sort of significant injury and was pulled from the contest mostly for performance-related reasons, as he surrendered 10 earned runs over just 2.1 innings. Flaherty will thus be good to go on his normal four days' rest to take the hill Tuesday, but a road matchup against the Cubs along with his dreadful numbers this season (6.29 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 36:22 K:BB in 34.1 innings) no longer make him the must-start fantasy option he has been for most of his career.

  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Removal Thursday not injury-related

    Flaherty's exit from Thursday's game against the Angels was not due to the comebacker that struck his left hand, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Flaherty was lit up Thursday, yielding 10 earned runs over just 2.1 innings, so it's easy to believe poor performance was the reason for his early exit rather than the comebacker. The right-hander will likely be able to make his next scheduled start, though the team may still keep an eye on his hand over the next few days as a precaution.

  • Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Exits after comebacker to hand

    Flaherty was lifted from his start Thursday against the Angels after taking a comebacker off his left hand, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The good news is that the injury is to Flaherty's non-throwing hand, and he didn't appear to be in too much pain. The bad news is that he was charged with 10 earned runs on nine hits and two walks over just 2.1 frames as his season ERA ballooned from 3.94 ERA all the way to 6.29. Flaherty's next turn through the rotation lines up to come next week against the Cubs, and he should be considered day-to-day until the Cardinals update his status.
