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.

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.
