John Gant picks up a save Monday

John Gant pitched a scoreless 11th inning in the Cardinals' 6-5 win over the Pirates on Monday. He walked one and struck out zero.

Fantasy Impact

This was the first career save for Gant, and he likely won't be in line for many more in St. Louis. The Cardinals had burned through the majority of their bullpen thanks to a truncated outing from Adam Wainwright, so by the time the 11th inning rolled around there weren't many other options for Mike Schildt. Gant has little to no fantasy value.

John Gant in the running for final rotation spot

John Gant is one of the finalists for the Cardinals' fifth rotation spot.

Fantasy Impact

Gant is competing with prospect Dakota Hudson for that fifth spot, nudging out Alex Reyes and Austin Gomber. Gant had decent surface numbers last year, going 7-6 with a 3.47 ERA in 114 innings, but the underlying numbers don't paint a pretty picture. He had a 4.88 SIERA and 1.67 K/BB ratio, and his 11.7% walk rate is untenable for a major league starter. Gant is the least interesting option of the remaining candidates.

John Gant hit hard in loss

John Gant allowed six runs on six hits with four walks and four strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings against the Dodgers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Gant struggled mightily in what was his worst outing in over a month. He hasn't been going deep into games and has struggled with command overall, making him hard to trust down the stretch despite his decent ratios on the season.

John Gant secures quality start against Tigers

John Gant allowed two runs on five hits, while walking one and striking out six over 6 2/3 innings, earning the win over the Tigers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The Dodgers will be his next opponent on Friday in St. Louis. His 31/17 K/BB and .226 BABIP over his last seven starts suggest he's been lucky recently. although he has yet to allow more than two earned runs over his last seven starts. A blowup could be coming at any time now.

John Gant struggles against Nationals

John Gant allowed three runs (none earned) on two hits with five walks and two strikeouts against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Gant struggled with command which limited his outing. He escaped without an earned run, but it wasn't a very pretty start. He was coming off a pair of impressive outings in which he allowed one run over 12 2/3 frames. He'll look to rebound in his next appearance against the Pirates.
