Orioles Acquire Flaherty to Boost Playoff Push

The Baltimore Orioles made a big splash at the trade deadline on Tuesday, acquiring right-hander Jack Flaherty from the St. Louis Cardinals. The deal sends infielder César Prieto, left-hander Drew Rom, and right-hander Zack Showalter to St. Louis.


Flaherty is a two-time All-Star who has been one of the best pitchers in the National League over the past few seasons. He is 7-6 with a 4.43 ERA this season, but he has been much better in recent weeks. In his last five starts, Flaherty has a 2.03 ERA and 0.97 WHIP.

The acquisition of Flaherty is a major boost for the Orioles, who are currently in first place in the American League East. The Orioles have a young and talented pitching staff, but they have been lacking a true ace. Flaherty gives them that ace, and he could be the difference-maker in their playoff push.

“We’re excited to add Jack to our team,” said Orioles general manager Mike Elias. “He’s a proven winner who has been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the past few years. He’s a great addition to our rotation, and he’ll help us make a run at the playoffs.”

Flaherty is a two-time Gold Glove winner, and he is known for his ability to miss bats. He has a fastball that can reach 97 mph, and he also has a nasty slider and changeup. He is a tough matchup for any hitter, and he will be a major asset for the Orioles down the stretch.

The trade for Flaherty is a sign that the Orioles are serious about winning this year. They have made several other moves at the deadline to improve their roster, and they are now one of the favorites to win the AL East. With Flaherty in their rotation, the Orioles are a force to be reckoned with.
