Jack Flaherty (shoulder) to throw bullpen session Saturday

Jack Flaherty will throw his first bullpen session since being shut down in March on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Flaherty has been taking it slow in his recovery from a shoulder injury. He's scheduled to use all his pitches in the bullpen, so it's a big step toward his return. The Cardinals should provide an update as to how Flaherty felt after the session at some point on Saturday, and if it goes well, his recovery should eventually continue to rehab starts. Still, at this pace, don't expect him back before mid-June, at least.

Jack Flaherty (shoulder) throws from 120 feet

Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) felt good after a pregame throwing session on Friday. "I was throwing at 120 feet, and we’re just continuing to build up while playing catch," he said. "We’ll continue to build off that.”

Fantasy Impact

Flaherty dealt with oblique and shoulder injuries last season and needed a platelet-rich plasma injection in his shoulder this past March. When the right-hander is healthy, he's dominant. Through 17 games in 2021, he went 9-2 with a 3.22 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and .199 OBA. He's worth stashing on your bench for the time being, but fantasy managers should understand that re-injury is very possible for someone like Flaherty.

Jack Flaherty has PRP injection for tear in shoulder

Jack Flaherty has tear in right shoulder, received PRP injection.

Fantasy Impact

Flaherty will not throw for at least two weeks when a treatment plan is set for him. A tear in your throwing shoulder is never ideal and a PRP injection usually just masks an issue to a bigger problem. Flaherty is someone to just scratch off your draft board even if he falls later in drafts.

Jack Flaherty getting second opinion on shoulder

Jack Flaherty is having a second expert opinion on his shoulder.

Fantasy Impact

It is never good news when we hear of a player getting a second opinion. Flaherty is having the Cardinals send his imaging from his MRI to another doctor to review. The official diagnosis has not been given, but it does not sound promising. Flaherty will miss Opening Day and could miss well beyond it.

Jack Flaherty undergoes right shoulder evaluation

Jack Flaherty underwent a right shoulder medical evaluation Tuesday afternoon per Katie Woo of The Athletic. The results remain unknown.

Fantasy Impact

Flaherty posted a 9-2 record alongside a 3.22 ERA despite the majority of his second half being spent battling back from injury. With less than a month remaining until Opening Day, any setback would hinder the 26-year-old's chance of staying off the IL to begin the season.
