Cardinals right-handed prospect Jack Flaherty will start against the Giants on Friday.
Flaherty has been putting up big numbers while splitting time between Double- and Triple-A this season In 25 starts covering 148 2/3 frames in the minors, the 21-year-old right-hander owns a 2.18 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 147/35 K/BB ratio. A spot in the rotation freed up following the Cardinals' trade of Mike Leake earlier on Wednesday. Flaherty holds some appeal for streaming purposes now that he is set for his major league debut. Aug 30 - 5:19 PM
