RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

The 21-year-old Flaherty may not have the upside of some of the other pitchers in the St. Louis organization, but he achieved a good deal of success at High-A in 2016. The former first-round pick posted a 126:45 K:BB in 134 innings at that level. His fastball sits in the low-90s and is certainly not overpowering, but it does have a lot of movement. His changeup is above average, and Flaherty also features an emerging curveball and slider. In addition, Flaherty possesses an ideal frame at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds that should hold up to the rigors of being a rotation workhorse. Flaherty has the upside of a No. 2 starter and will begin the 2017 campaign at Double-A working to improve his secondary offerings.

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.
