Since signing with the Cardinals, Flaherty has been pitching for the Gulf Coast League Cardinals, a rookie league Cardinals affiliate team based in Jupiter, Fla. that plays in the Rookie Gulf Coast League. Flaherty holds a 2.79 ERA in 5 appearances for the team.
“Things are going really well right now. I have a little bit less than a month left in the season,” Flaherty said. “All in all, I’m enjoying my time out here.”
