Flaherty has gone 4-0 with a 0.33 ERA over his first four starts in 2017, drawing rave reviews in his first taste of Double-A ball, Max Gelman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "The thing that really stands out for Jack is he has shown at each level, he's been able to command his fastball, a real quality that he has that separates him from younger pitchers," Cardinals farm director Gary LaRocque said. "He works his fastball to both sides of the plate and he gets himself into a lot of quality innings."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Despite missing almost two months with a back injury at the start of the season, Flaherty managed to pass his first test pitching in a full-season league with flying colors. The 6-foot-4 righty posted a 2.84 ERA (2.83 FIP) with a 1.29 WHIP and 97 strikeouts in 95 innings with Low-A Peoria. He probably should have been challenged with a late-season promotion to the Florida State League, as his four-pitch mix was more than enough to dominate Low-A hitters. Flaherty will get his chance with High-A Palm Beach to start his age-20 season, but this may not be a one level per year arm, as the Cardinals might want to see how he fares in the upper levels at some point in 2016. A first-round pick in 2014, Flaherty has three pitches that could reach plus status, giving him a No. 2 ceiling, with the realistic floor of a No. 4 starter.

2015

The Cardinals took Flaherty in the first round of the 2014 draft, inking the 6-foot-4 righty with a bonus well over the slot value for the No. 34 pick. He's several years away from contributing at the big league level but the Cardinals spent a lot to keep him from going to North Carolina for college. He was able to get in six starts in the Gulf Coast League for the Cardinals, posting an impressive 1.59 ERA and 28 strikeouts in just 22.2 innings as an 18-year-old. He could take some big steps forward in 2015, his first full year where his focus will be entirely on pitching, and if he can finish the season in High-A for the Cardinals it will be a great sign of things to come.
