Cardinals' John Gant: Gets second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gant earned his second save by retiring the lone batter he faced in a 5-2 win over the Reds on Sunday.

After Dominic Leone allowed two runs in the ninth inning, Gant promptly retired Derek Dietrich to nail down his second save of the season. Jordan Hicks was used in the eighth inning for one out but is not in any danger of losing his grip on the closer's role. Gant has a 0.96 ERA with a 17:7 K:BB through 18.2 innings this season.

Cardinals' John Gant: Nabs first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gant grabbed his first save in an extra-innings win over the Pirates on Monday, allowing just a walk over a scoreless 11th inning.

Closer Jordan Hicks had worked the prior two innings and alternate option Andrew Miller had been utilized earlier in the day as well. That left Gant as the next man up in the 11th, and he was able to shut down the Pirates on 12 pitches after St. Louis had taken the lead on a passed ball in the visitors' half of the frame. Despite the rare save Monday, Gant is much more likely to see an occasional hold opportunity or garner a decision as a sixth- or seventh-inning option.

Cardinals' John Gant: Picks up win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gant (1-0) walked one and struck out two in 1.2 scoreless innings to record the victory in Friday's 9-5 win over the Brewers.

Taking over for Jack Flaherty in the fifth inning, Gant kept Milwaukee at bay while Paul Goldschmidt broke the game open with his second of three homers on the night in the seventh inning. The right-hander has appeared in each of the Cards' first two games this season, and his long relief/swing man role could keep him busy all year.

Cardinals' John Gant: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gant will open the season in a "hybrid" bullpen role, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

The Cardinals confirmed that Dakota Hudson will open the season as the team's fifth starter, leaving Gant to fill a swingman role. In 26 appearances (19 starts) for the big club in 2018, the right-hander compiled a 3.47 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 95:57 K:BB in 114 innings.

Cardinals' John Gant: To make team as starter or reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gant will make the Opening Day roster, though his role is still undecided, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Gant is battling Dakota Hudson for the Cardinals' fifth starter job, with the loser expected to fill a mop-up role. Gant's 3.46 ERA in 13 spring innings is perfectly fine, but it trails Hudson's 1.72 mark.
