SP - STL - IL10
Cardinals' ace Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is set to begin throwing sometime over the next couple of days, according to Cardinals' manager Mike Schildt.
Flaherty landed on the 10-day IL with a strained right shoulder on August 25th, but after a brief "no throwing" period, it looks like he is set to resume throwing in the next few days. Cardinals' skipper Mike Schildt notes that this is a "huge step" for Flaherty, which is a good sign for Flaherty and fantasy managers alike. Flaherty is still without a defined timetable for his return, but hopefully he's back in time for the later stages of the fantasy playoffs.
The Cardinals placed RHP Jack Flaherty on the 10-day IL with a right shoulder strain.
Flaherty exited Tuesday's start with shoulder tightness and will be shut down for a bit. He had imaging taken, which revealed no structural damage, but time is running out this season. Flaherty could very well be done for 2021, which is a huge blow to fantasy managers. We'll see if the Cardinals update his status over the next few days.
Cardinals' ace Jack Flaherty was removed from Tuesday evening's game with right shoulder tightness.
Tuesday marked Flaherty's third start since coming off the IL with a left oblique strain, but he was forced to exit the game with right shoulder tightness. Flaherty exited after giving up four runs in two innings of work before being forced out of the contest due to injury. More information should become available at game's end.
Making just his second start since returning from the injured list, Jack Flaherty was sharp in a no-decision against Milwaukee on Wednesday. The Cardinals ace allowed just four hits, two runs, and a walk while striking out eight batters in six innings.
Both runs that Flaherty allowed were solo home runs, first to Willy Adames and then to Avisail Garcia. After pitching six scoreless innings his last time out, Flaherty has shown no rust in his return to the rotation after a lengthy injury absence and now boasts an electrifying 2.68 ERA and 0.96 WHIP on the season. He has an appealing home date with Detroit on tap early next week.
After missing nearly 2 1/2 months of action, Cardinals ace Jack Flaherty returned to the mound and did not miss a beat on Friday, pitching six shutout innings while allowing just a pair of hits and striking out five in a win over the Royals.
Flaherty cruised all evening, throwing just 81 pitches (52 strikes) in a dominant performance, surrendering just a pair of singles. The right-hander showed impressive command and improved his record to 9-1 on the season with a spectacular 2.65 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. The 25-year-old is an absolute difference-making addition for both the Cardinals and fantasy managers heading into the final stretch of the season. He'll face the division-leading Brewers at home his next time out.
