John Gant tendered contract by Cardinals

Entering his fourth season with St. Louis, John Gant has received a tendered contract from the Cardinals for his 2020 campaign. The right-hander was the sole player that St. Louis needed to make a decision on before the "non-tender deadline." Salary figures will be determined later either via the arbitration process or by team negotiations before mid-January.

Fantasy Impact

This is great news for the Cardinals and Gant's fantasy value. Gant has proved to be incredibly versatile out of the bullpen - he can spot-start, throw multiple innings, or simply "get his guy" (get one batter out). Gant posted a career high 11 wins, suffering only one loss in his 2019 season maintaining a 3.66 ERA over that stretch. The Cardinals will look to Gant and his multi-faceted talent as the centerpiece of their bullpen again for the 2020 season.

John Gant records 14th hold Thursday

John Gant threw a perfect seventh in the Cardinals' win in Pittsburgh Thursday. His struck out two.

Fantasy Impact

Gant's ERA was lowered to 2.55. He continues to be heavily utilized out of St. Louis' bullpen. Gant's SP/RP eligibility could provided an additional advantage to fantasy owners.

John Gant could see saves chances if Hicks misses time

Cardinals president John Mozeliak says John Gant could receive save chances if Jordan Hicks (triceps) needs an IL stint.

Fantasy Impact

Gant has been solid this season, posting a 1.54 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP through 34 appearances. He doesn't miss an elite number of bats but would be worth picking up if Hicks does indeed wind up on the injured list.

John Gant improves to 5-0 Thursday

John Gant picked up his fifth win in relief in the Cardinals' 3-1 win over the Reds on Thursday. He fired one and a third perfect innings with a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Gant has been dominant out of the pen for St. Louis, and now has a 1.10 ERA on the year. His .149 BABIP and 100% LOB rate both indicate some rather good fortune on Gant's part, but he still seems to have made some strides as a reliever. He is likely next in line for saves should Jordan Hicks falter.
