Jack Flaherty strikes out eight in loss Tuesday

Jack Flaherty allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings in the Cardinals' 6-0 loss to the Marlins on Tuesday. He walked one and struck out eight while falling to 4-4.

Fantasy Impact

Once again, Flaherty piled up strikeouts but struggled to keep runs off the board. He served up a pair of bombs, and now has a 1.67 HR/9 on the year along with a 4.42 FIP. His 3.89 xFIP is a little more favorable, but Flaherty will need to curb the longball if he wants to maintain a sub-four ERA. His next start comes Tuesday vs. Oakland.

Jack Flaherty allows four runs in no-decision Thursday

Jack Flaherty allowed four runs on six hits over 5 1/3rd innings Thursday. He walked two and struck out eight. The Cardinals-Mets game was suspended in the bottom of the ninth with a 4-4 score.

Fantasy Impact

The game may not be in the books yet, but Flaherty is no longer the pitcher of record after a mediocre outing on Thursday. It was more of the same for Flaherty: inefficient with his pitches, walking multiple batters, and serving up a home run. He has a case for one of the best slider's in baseball, but there are still many flaws in this profile that must be worked out before Flaherty can take the next step. Ideally, those would be mid-season adjustments, but that's a tall order for a 23-year-old with one full season under his belt. His next start comes Tuesday vs. Miami.

Jack Flaherty can't make it through four Saturday

Jack Flaherty allowed four runs on five hits over 3 2/3 innings in the Cardinals' 9-4 loss to the Cubs on Saturday. He walked three and struck out none in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

This was the first start in Flaherty's career where he failed to record a strikeout. In fact, it was the first start where he failed to record at least two strikeouts. The young right-hander possesses massive potential, but is still inconsistent at this point in his career. His next start comes Thursday at the Mets.

Jack Flaherty strikes out eight in rain-shortened outing

Jack Flaherty allowed two runs on four hits over five innings in the Cardinals' 7-4 win over the Cubs on Saturday. He walked none and struck out eight in the no decision.

Fantasy Impact

Flaherty was cruising before the weather delay, punching out eight Cubs' hitters. Well, he was sort of cruising. He still gave up a pair of solo home runs. The long ball has been a problem for Flaherty this year, who now has a 1.53 HR/9 in 12 starts. Other that home runs and the occasional issue with control, Flaherty has been what we expected coming into the year. His next start comes Friday at the Cubs.

Jack Flaherty pitches six scoreless Sunday

Jack Flaherty fired six scoreless innings and struck out seven in the Cardinals' 4-3 extra innings loss to the Braves on Sunday. He allowed three hits, no walks, and took a no decision.

Fantasy Impact

Flaherty was on in this one, but unfortunately his bullpen couldn't seal the deal for Flaherty to get a win. The young right-hander has had his ups and downs this year, but he has the talent to crank out starts like this with regularity. He just needs to reign in his command with the slider before that can happen, and this outing was a great start. He'll next take the hill Saturday vs. Chicago.
