Cardinals To Place Jack Flaherty On 10-Day Injured List With “Significant” Oblique Injury

The Cardinals will place Jack Flaherty on the 10-day injured list, but St. Louis is preparing to miss Flaherty for more than just a couple weeks, per MLB.com’s Jeff Jones (via Twitter). Flaherty suffered a “significant” oblique injury, adds the Athletic’s Katie Woo. There is no timetable for his return, but the initial word choices here do not paint a positive picture for the Cardinals’ right-hander, who may be looking at a Grade 2 or Grade 3 oblique strain – though no official designation has been given.

Johan Oviedo will take Flaherty’s spot in the rotation. Oviedo was recently optioned to Triple-A. The 23-year-old has a 5.40 ERA/6.02 FIP in 20 innings this season.
