  • Jack Flaherty's Next Rehab Outing Scheduled For Tuesday

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is scheduled to throw roughly 40 to 45 pitches in his next rehab outing at the Double-A level on Tuesday, according to Katie Woo of The Athletic. His last outing didn't go so well as he allowed three runs over just one inning of work. Injuries have plagued Flaherty for several seasons; he has thrown 125.2 innings over the last three years, including just eight in 2022. He hasn't lasted more than four innings in a single outing (majors or minors) since August 18, 2021. Flaherty's ongoing recovery poses a headache for fantasy managers, who now might have to wait until at least September before he returns to an MLB mound.

  • Jack Flaherty Shaky During Rehab Start

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jake Flaherty (shoulder) made his first rehab start with Triple-A Memphis on Thursday. He allowed, four hits, three earned runs, and struck out two batters in his one inning of work. This wasn't the result the team wanted to see, but at least his velocity was still there. Flaherty isn't eligible to return for another two weeks, so expect at least one more rehab appearance from him. Fantasy managers will have to be patient as Flaherty might not return until closer to September.

  • Jack Flaherty To Start Rehab Assignment On Wednesday

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday. The hope is that Flaherty can throw around 30-35 pitches during his rehab debut. The 26-year-old has thrown a total of eight innings this season across three starts. He continues to deal with a lingering shoulder issue, but it sounds like he is finally making progress. Hopefully, Flaherty can make an impact for the Cardinals down the stretch of the season. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect much from Flaherty from a fantasy standpoint. It sounds like Flaherty is just beginning his rehab process, so he won't be ready to pitch in St. Louis for at least a few weeks.

  • Mechanics To Blame For Jack Flaherty's Injury?

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) thinks mechanical issues with his throwing motion could have been the reason behind his latest stint on the injured list. He missed the first two and a half months of the season and then returned for three starts before going back on the IL on June 27. Flaherty is currently on the 60-day IL, so he's not eligible to return until Aug. 25. The 26-year-old right-hander had a light throwing session on Saturday and threw a bullpen session on Sunday. A decision on an upcoming minor league rehab assignment for Flaherty should be decided soon. He had a 5.63 ERA and more walks (nine) than strikeouts (six) in his three June starts, but he's hoping for continued success this time around when he rejoins St. Louis' rotation to close out the year.

  • Jack Flaherty Could Return In Late August

    St. Louis Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said that right-hander Jack Flaherty (shoulder) will rejoin the team in St. Louis on Saturday. After he throws a bullpen session, the Cardinals will determine when and where Flaherty will head out on a minor league rehab assignment. There is hope from the team that he can return to the starting rotation by late August or early September. The 26-year-old landed on the injured list on June 27 with a strained right shoulder, and he could return when first eligible in the last week of August, barring any setbacks on his rehab assignment. Flaherty has made only three starts for the Red Birds due to injury, and he allowed five earned runs while striking out six and walking nine in eight innings, but he's worth stashing right now in fantasy leagues if you're in need of starting pitching down the stretch.

  • Cardinals Transfer Jack Flaherty To 60-Day IL

    The Cardinals announced a series of roster moves prior to today’s game, activating left-hander T.J. McFarland from the COVID IL. To create space on the active roster, fellow lefty Zack Thompson was optioned to Triple-A Memphis. To open a spot on the 40-man roster, righty Jack Flaherty was transferred to the 60-day IL.

  • Jack Flaherty To Be Re-Evaluated In A Couple Weeks

    St. Louis Cardinals right-handed pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is set to undergo physical therapy over the next couple of weeks, according to Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak. After he completes physical therapy, he will be re-evaluated by the team. The 26-year-old was placed on the 15-day injured list due to a right shoulder strain on Monday. We don't have a clear timetable for him at this point, but based on this physical-therapy news, it certainly doesn't sound like this stint on the injured list will be a short one. If you're pressed for roster space right now, Flaherty is someone who can be let go. Despite the high upside he's shown in previous years, he faces a lot of obstacles towards becoming a significant fantasy contributor at some point this year.

  • Jack Flaherty Dealing With Dead Arm?

    St. Louis Cardinals skipper Oliver Marmol said that starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) didn't have pain but tightness and more of a dead-arm sensation when he was removed from his start early on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs. The tightness isn't in the same area as Flaherty's previous shoulder injury, but the team is still evaluating him. The 26-year-old right-hander was making just his third start of the season after a right shoulder injury caused him to get a late start in 2022, so it's a bit concerning that he's already having more shoulder issues. He threw 49 pitches in two scoreless innings before departing, and it's unclear if he'll be able to make his next start. Fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if Flaherty skips a start or even lands back on the injured list.

  • Jack Flaherty Leaves Early With Shoulder Stiffness

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) left his start early on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs with right shoulder stiffness. Flaherty departed after tossing two scoreless innings. Fantasy managers should be pretty concerned, as the 26-year-old right-hander missed the first two and a half months of the season with right shoulder inflammation. Flaherty had allowed five earned runs on seven hits while walking seven and striking out four in six innings over his first two starts, and fantasy managers will need to be prepared for a return to the injured list. The Cardinals will likely put Flaherty through some tests to determine whether he'll need another stay on the IL. It's extremely disappointing in just his third start of 2022.

  • Jack Flaherty Activated, Set To Start On Wednesday

    The St. Louis Cardinals have activated right-hander Jack Flaherty (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list. He is set to make his season debut as the team's starting pitcher in Wednesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Flaherty has been sidelined all year with right shoulder inflammation. He made a pair of rehab starts over the past few weeks and produced strong results, allowing just one hit, one walk and one earned run over seven innings while striking out nine. Feel free to fire him up in all fantasy formats with a favorable matchup against a weak Pirates offense. He likely won't pitch very deep into the game but he has a good chance of coming through with four or five strong innings.

  • Jack Flaherty To Make Season Debut Wednesday

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was believed that Flaherty would make one more minor league start this week before rejoining St. Louis' rotation, but that won't happen. Instead, the 26-year-old will get a good matchup against the lowly Pirates, but Flaherty only reached 58 pitches in his last rehab start, so he could be on a short leash in his debut. The good news is that the right-hander struck out nine and allowed only one baserunner in seven innings in his two rehab starts, and he needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues moving forward. Flaherty went 9-2 last year with a 3.22 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 78 1/3 innings and has the potential to be a strong No. 2 starter for fantasy managers when healthy.

  • Jack Flaherty Scheduled For Wednesday Rehab Start

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is scheduled for a rehab start on Wednesday with Triple-A Memphis. He'll have a 75-pitch count target, according to beat writer Katie Woo. This will be Flaherty's third rehab start since early June and has the potential to be his last, barring any setbacks. He should make his 2022 season debut sometime in the middle of this month.

  • Jack Flaherty Throws Three Perfect Innings In Rehab Game

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) retired all nine batters he faced on 30 pitches for Double-A Springfield on Sunday in his first minor league rehab start. The right-hander touched 96 mph with his fastball in the first inning and struck out three total in three innings of work. The Cardinals will want Flaherty to move closer to 60 pitches in his next rehab outing, and he could be on track to rejoin the team and make his 2022 season debut by the end of the month. Flaherty's rehab start on Sunday was a nice first step, and the 26-year-old could be a solid No. 2 fantasy starter for the rest of the season once he returns from the injured list.

  • Jack Flaherty Should Start Rehab Assignment Next Week

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is aimed toward beginning his minor league rehab assignment with a start next week for Double-A Springfield. Flaherty threw a two-inning live batting practice session on Tuesday and will throw another bullpen session on Thursday. The 26-year-old right-hander is feeling much better physically after a right shoulder injury in spring training delayed his start to the 2022 campaign. It remains to be seen how many minor league starts Flaherty will need, but the Cardinals surely won't rush him back. When healthy, Flaherty has the goods to be a strong SP2 for fantasy managers, so he should be stashed now if he's lingering on your league's waiver wire.

  • Jack Flaherty On Cusp Of Rehab Assignment

    St. Louis Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said that starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session on Thursday, and the likely next step after that will be a minor league rehab assignment. "Jack felt good after his live BP yesterday. He woke up this morning and recovery has been really good so we'll take that next step," Marmol said. The 26-year-old right-hander threw between 40 and 50 pitches in a two-inning live batting practice on session and is nearing a return after suffering a shoulder injury in spring training. Flaherty is currently on the 60-day injured list, but barring any setbacks, it looks like he'll make his 2022 debut for the Cardinals early this month.

  • Jack Flaherty To Throw Bullpen Session Tuesday

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) will be throwing a bullpen session on Tuesday. He is expected to throw between 35 and 40 pitches in the workout. The right-hander faced live hitters five days back, throwing 25 pitches to his teammates Lars Nootbaar and Ivan Herrera. Flaherty has been on the injured list all year and he still doesn't have a clear return timetable. His high upside and promising track record make him worthy of keeping in an IL spot in most fantasy leagues. Last year, he went 9-2 with a 3.22 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 17 games (15 starts).

  • Jack Flaherty Uses All His Pitches Thursday

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) threw 25 pitches to live hitters on Thursday and used his whole mix of pitches. Manager Oliver Marmol said the session went well. The Cardinals will have Flaherty repeat this step a couple times before sending him out on a minor league rehab assignment. The 26-year-old right-hander was moved to the 60-day injured list last week, so he won't be eligible to be activated until early June. Flaherty has yet to pitch in 2022, but he should be stashed in most fantasy formats after going 9-2 with a 3.22 ERA and 1.06 WHIP while walking 26 and striking out 85 in 78 1/3 innings over his 17 appearances (15 starts) last season.

  • Jack Flaherty To Face Hitters Thursday

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) will face live hitters on Thursday. Flaherty started throwing bullpen sessions early this month and is making nice progress after he was moved to the 60-day injured list last week. The 26-year-old right-hander won't be able to rejoin the team's starting rotation until early June, but he's getting closer to going on a minor league rehab assignment. Flaherty has yet to pitch in 2022, but he went 9-2 with a 3.22 ERA and 1.06 WHIP while walking 26 and striking out 85 in 78 1/3 innings over 17 games (15 starts) for the Cardinals last year. He should be stashed in the vast majority of fantasy leagues with his season debut coming soon, barring a setback.

  • Jack Flaherty To Be Transferred To 60-Day Injured List

    The St. Louis Cardinals will be transferring starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list, according to Cardinals beat writer Katie Woo. The move is being made to make room on the 40-man roster for infield prospect Nolan Gorman, who is being called up for his big league debut on Friday. Woo emphasized that Flaherty's move to the 60-day injured list doesn't impact his timeline. He remains on the same schedule he has been on. Flaherty has been throwing bullpen sessions, but he still needs to progress to simulated games and then a rehab assignment. We're likely looking at a mid-June debut for him with the Cardinals at the earliest.
