Jack Flaherty News
Baltimore Orioles right-hander Jack Flaherty is being moved to the bullpen for at least the short term and he will be available in relief on Tuesday against the Houston Astros, according to manager Brandon Hyde. The skipper wouldn't rule out a potential return to the starting rotation for Flaherty down the road, possibly in the postseason. The former St. Louis Cardinals starter just hasn't been good in his seven starts for the O's after being acquired in a trade from St. Louis, as he's gone 1-3 in those seven starts while allowing 26 runs (25 earned) on 41 hits (seven homers) while walking 12 and striking out 38 in 31 2/3 innings. The 27-year-old will now lose what little fantasy value he had left to close out 2023.
Baltimore Orioles right-hander Jack Flaherty (general soreness) will start Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies. He was scratched from his scheduled start on Wednesday versus the Blue Jays due to general soreness. The 27-year-old was rocked for seven runs over three innings in his previous start. He owns a 4.73 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and a 125:62 K: BB across 123 2/3 innings in 2023. Flaherty has struggled recently by posting a 7.07 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP over his last three starts. Despite his recent struggles, Flaherty can be used as a streamer in a plus matchup against the Rockies.
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said that right-hander Jack Flaherty is dealing with "general soreness" that occurs between starts, which is why he didn't make his scheduled start on Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Hyde said the team is taking a precaution, but it remains to be seen if Flaherty will be able to make his next start. If the 27-year-old is able to make his next start, fantasy managers should be hesitant to rely on him. In his three starts with Baltimore since coming over at the trade deadline from the St. Louis Cardinals, he's allowed 11 earned runs on 14 hits (two homers) while walking and fanning 19 in 14 innings against the Jays, Astros and Padres.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty is coming off a miserable 2022 in which his injury woes continued to hamper him. He threw only 36 innings, going 2-1 with a 4.25 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, and 33 strikeouts. He walked too many batters (13.2%) while striking out a career-low 19.8%. His advanced numbers didn't look any better, with a 4.94 xERA and 4.97 FIP. Flaherty simply hasn't been the same pitcher since the shortened 2020 season, and multiple injuries since then haven't helped him either. All that being said, we all know the potential Flaherty possesses. If he can get healthy and pitch anywhere close to that level, he could be a terrific value at his 227.4 ADP. That is certainly a big if considering he hasn't come anywhere close to that level since, but a slightly positive sign is that he finished 2022 strong, posting two quality starts in which he struck out 15 batters in 12 innings. It's a small sample, but it's a glimmer of hope that he can be a productive pitcher again. Don't expect much from him, but he has upside and his ADP makes him a near-zero risk option.
