RHP Jack Flaherty
A season before finishing fifth in National League Rookie of the Year voting, Flaherty opened the 2017 season in Springfield by posting a 1.42 ERA and a 7-2 record over 10 starts. Flaherty, who struck out 62 in 63.1 innings with Springfield, earned Texas League Pitcher of the Week (4/23/2017) and MiLB.com Texas League Player of the Month (4/2017) honors before earning the call to Triple-A Memphis. Flaherty was later named to the Texas League Post-Season All-Star team. That dominance continued with the Redbirds in 2017, and Flaherty debuted with St. Louis on September 1, 2017. After starting the 2018 season in Memphis, he again got the call to St. Louis and stuck, delivering a 3.34 ERA and 182 strikeouts (151.0 IP) over 28 starts.
