The Call-Up: Jack Flaherty

1

Jarrett Seidler and Wilson Karaman

Mike Leake's rotation replacement has improved his stock considerably.

The Situation: The Cardinals have fallen back to .500, 5.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot. While they’re not totally throwing in the towel for 2017, they did salary dump part of Mike Leake’s contract on the Mariners. That opens a rotation spot for their most MLB-ready starting pitching prospect, right-hander Jack Flaherty.

Background: Flaherty burst onto the national scene as a high school sophomore in 2012, rounding out a pitching staff at the prestigious Harvard-Westlake prep school in Los Angeles that included Lucas Giolito and Max Fried. Two years later, the Cardinals made him the 34th overall pick in the draft and signed him for a cool $2 million. After stout years at both full-season A-ball levels, he sliced and diced the upper minors this year, posting a 2.18 ERA and 147/35 K/BB ratio. Flaherty has ranked as high as second in the Cardinals' organization on our pre-2016 rankings, and just missed making the midseason top 50 this year.

Baseball Prospectus

Scouts' takes on Garrett Richards, Dellin Betances, Braden Shipley, and other interesting players.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike.
