Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Monday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty won't start Monday against the Pirates as the game was postponed due to the Cardinals' COVID-19 outbreak, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

It was reported earlier in the day the Cardinals wouldn't be allowed to practice together for at least three days, so it's not much of a surprise Monday's series opener won't be played. The remaining two games of the series aren't overly likely to go on as scheduled, and that decision could be made Sunday. The Cardinals may not see the field again until Thursday against the Tigers, which would be over two weeks since their previous game.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Next start unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The date of Flaherty's start remains unclear, as there appears to be a significant chance the Cardinals' upcoming series against the Pirates will be canceled, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

When the Marlins had the first COVID-19 outbreak of the year, they wound up shut down for eight days. If the Cardinals followed a similar schedule, they would have already returned to play Friday, but players have continued to test positive, so their season continues to hang in the balance. The team isn't expected to practice together for at least three days, and they may not get the chance to play again until Thursday in Detroit, giving them more than two full weeks without any game action.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Will start Sunday or Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Shildt announced Thursday that Flaherty will make his next start either Sunday against the Cubs or Monday against the Pirates, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

According to Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com, the team has opted to get Flaherty another side session under his belt before starting a game for the first time in over two weeks due to the club's COVID-19 outbreak. St. Louis will go with Daniel Ponce de Leon in Friday's opener against the Cubs and Flaherty will make his second start of the campaign on either Sunday or Monday.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Sunday's twin bill postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty won't make his scheduled start during Sunday's doubleheader at Milwaukee since the games were postponed due to multiple positive tests for COVID-19, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

The 24-year-old was originally set to take the mound in Friday's series opener, but the numerous positive tests produced by St. Louis ended up postponing the weekend series in its entirety. Flaherty will presumably receive the starting nod for the Cardinals' next game, which is currently scheduled for Tuesday in Detroit, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Game postponed Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty won't make his scheduled start Saturday against the Brewers since the Cardinals produced multiple positive tests for COVID-19, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

After Friday's contest was postponed for precautionary means, the Brewers and Cardinals won't suit up Saturday as a result of several positive COVID-19 tests within the St. Louis organization. Sunday's doubleheader hasn't officially been called off, but it's unclear whether the teams will be able to play. If the Cardinals are able to resume play in the near future, Flaherty could line up to pitch Sunday or Monday, but no official announcements have been made.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Friday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty won't make his scheduled start Friday in Milwaukee since St. Louis produced multiple positive tests for COVID-19, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 25-year-old was scheduled to make his second start of the season against the Brewers, but the Cardinals are instead isolating themselves at the team hotel, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The game is set to be made up via a doubleheader Sunday, and Saturday's game is expected to be played as scheduled, per Anne Rogers of MLB.com. Flaherty is still set to pitch sometime this weekend, though the Cardinals haven't announced their updated plans for the rotation.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Picks up Opening Day win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty (1-0) earned the victory over Pittsburgh on Friday, completing seven innings and giving up two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out six.

Flaherty looked every bit an ace Opening Day, throwing 62 of 89 pitches for strikes in an efficient seven innings. He held the Pirates scoreless until the seventh frame and yielded only six singles on the night. The right-hander broke through with a dominant second half last season and will look to cement his place as one of the game's elite hurlers in the abbreviated 2020 campaign. His next test will come at Milwaukee on the final day of July.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Pitches to contact in final tune-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty, who'll start Opening Day against the Rangers, allowed three earned runs while recording 10 outs across 92 pitches in an intrasquad scrimmage Sunday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander faced plenty of regulars and gave up a first-inning home run to Matt Carpenter, a leadoff triple in the second to Lane Thomas, and a two-run double to Paul DeJong as far as extra-base hits. Flaherty also struggled with control, getting just 52 of his offerings into the strike zone. Despite the uneven performance from his ace, manager Mike Shildt didn't convey concern following the game, instead focusing on the progress the team's hitters seem to be making in getting their timing down ahead of the start of the season.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Starting season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Shildt announced Flaherty as his Opening Day starter for the July 24 opener against the Pirates, FOX Sports Midwest reports.

The 24-year-old will unsurprisingly remain the Cardinals' top option for Opening Day despite the multi-month shutdown. Flaherty was a legitimate ace in 2019 with a 2.75 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 231:55 K:BB over 196.1 innings, finishing fourth in NL Cy Young voting thanks to a dominant second half (0.91 ERA and .142 BAA).

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Solid in Thursday intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty allowed one run on two hits and two walks over three innings while striking out two in Thursday night's intrasquad game at Busch Stadium, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The staff ace threw 43 pitches overall, and he got out of a particularly tight jam in the third after loading the bases with a walk to Justin Williams and back-to-back singles from Edmundo Sosa and Dexter Fowler. Flaherty ultimately only allowed one run on an RBI fielder's choice by Tommy Edman and was able to get in a solid amount of work, lending credence to the notion he could be ready for at least a five-inning workload in a July 24 Opening Day start against the Pirates.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Impressive in first camp workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty received praise for his work during the Cardinals' first summer camp workout at Busch Stadium on Friday, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The staff ace and projected Opening Day starter wasted no time getting back into the thick of things, facing several of his teammates in live batting practice. Pitching coach Mike Maddux described Flaherty as being in midseason form to manager Mike Shildt, certainly an encouraging sign given the right-hander's importance to the team's fortunes.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Considered ace material
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty is tabbed as a potential ace of the Cardinals' staff by team beat writer Anne Rogers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander was arguably already worthy of the title during the second half of last season, when he posted an 0.91 ERA, .142 BAA and 124:23 K:BB across 99.1 post-All-Star-break frames. Flaherty ultimately finished fourth in NL Cy Young voting, and he was set for an Opening Day start before play was suspended. Rogers notes the one missing component for Flaherty's ascension to the next level is consistency, as the 24-year-old posted an elevated 4.64 ERA in the first half of the 2019 campaign. As such, Flaherty emphasized through the offseason and spring training that staying strong from start to finish was his main focus coming into 2020, and he'll still look to make good on that vow during what projects to be an abbreviated season.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Maintenance plan laid out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty is likely to throw at least 45 pitches in twice-a-week bullpen sessions while Grapefruit League play remains suspended, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Rogers reports manager Mike Shildt and his staff are in the process of setting up a maintenance program for the team's starting pitchers to follow during the suspension of spring training. The templates will be individualized to an extent for each player, but Flaherty's is likely to fall approximately within the 45-pitch, twice-a-week guideline. The right-hander will open the 2020 season as the ace of the staff and had already worked up to 68 pitches in his most recent start Tuesday, his fourth in Grapefruit League action.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Continues spring dominance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty fired three scoreless innings in a Grapefruit League win over the Red Sox on Tuesday, allowing three hits and two walks while recording five strikeouts.

The right-hander lowered his spring ERA to 3.09 in what was his fourth start of Grapefruit League play, but Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports the right-hander was actually frustrated with allowing five runners to reach base during the 68-pitch outing. The biggest source of Flaherty's ire was the second inning, when he surrendered two singles and a walk before snuffing out the threat with an impressive strikeout of Andrew Benintendi. Flaherty is likely to push his pitch count into the 75-80 range at minimum in his next spring start, projected for Sunday or Monday if he remains on his normal schedule.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Breezes through spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty opened Saturday's 2-0 Grapefruit League win over the Mets and fired two scoreless innings during which he allowed two hits and recorded three strikeouts.

Just named the Opening Day starter, Flaherty put on a performance worthy of the honor against a Mets lineup with several regulars. The right-hander worked around a one-out J.D. Davis double in the first with strikeouts of Brandon Nimmo and Dominic Smith before getting through a relatively uneventful second inning during which he yielded only a single to Luis Guillorme. Flaherty will build his innings/pitch count up over subsequent spring outings ahead of his aforementioned March 26 date with the Reds to kick off the 2020 regular season.

February 22, 2020 10:36 AM
Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty was confirmed as the starter for Opening Day on Saturday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Manager Mike Shildt declined to confirm Flaherty as the starter for Opening Day on Wednesday, but he gave the confirmation Saturday ahead of his scheduled start in the Grapefruit League opener. The 24-year-old was dominant last season, logging a 2.75 ERA and 0.97 WHIP over 196.1 innings in 2019.

February 20, 2020 12:00 AM
Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Starting Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty will start Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Mets and likely work two innings or up to 30 pitches, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander unsurprisingly will get the call after finishing the 2019 season in dominant fashion, generating an 0.91 ERA over 15 post-All-Star-break starts. Flaherty is also the likely Opening Day starter against the Reds on March 26, although manager Mike Shildt wouldn't confirm as much when asked Wednesday.

Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Named starter for NLCS Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty was named the starter for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Nationals on Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Flaherty was effective in his two starts in the NLDS, posting a 2.76 ERA with a 16:2 K:BB over 13 innings against the Braves. Miles Mikolas will start Game 1 of the series with Adam Wainwright handling the starting duties for Game 2.

October 10, 2019 12:48 AM
Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Six dominant innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty (1-1) earned the win with six innings of one-run ball, giving up four hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in Wednesday's 13-1 win over the Braves in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

Flaherty was spotted 10 -- yes, 10 -- runs by his offense in the top of the first but certainly did his part nonetheless. A solo home run by Josh Donaldson in the fourth inning accounted for the lone Atlanta run. The 23-year-old Flaherty was dominant throughout the regular season and posted a 2.76 ERA with a 16:2 K:BB ratio over 13 innings in his two NLDS starts. Flaherty and the Cardinals will face the Nationals in the National League Championship Series.

October 7, 2019 12:04 PM
Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Named Game 5 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flaherty will start Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Braves on Wednesday should it be necessary, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Flaherty will start Game 5 for the Cardinals if they can beat the Braves at home in the fourth game of the series Monday. The 23-year-old went seven innings in Game 2, allowing three earned runs off eight hits and one walk while recording eight strikeouts as he was charged with a loss. Wednesday's starting assignment will likely make Flaherty unavailable out of the bullpen for Game 4.
