KANSAS CITY, Mo., August 13, 2021 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced this afternoon that they have placed left-handed pitcher Wade LeBlanc (left elbow) on the 10-day Injured List, and activated right-handed pitcher Jack Flaherty (left oblique strain) from the 60-day Injured List.

LeBlanc, 37, who celebrated his birthday last Saturday, exited Thursday afternoon’s game in Pittsburgh after pitching two innings. The southpaw has made eight starts and 12 appearances all-together for the Cardinals in 2021, posting an 0-2 record with a 3.61 ERA compiling 42.1 innings.

Flaherty, 25, is returning off the 60-day Injured List with a left oblique strain suffered during a start at Los Angeles on May 31. The Cardinals hurler was 8-1 with a 2.90 ERA in 11 starts when he went on the Injured List and was leading all National League pitchers in wins at the time.

Since July 27, Flaherty has made three rehab starts between Memphis (AAA) and Springfield (AA) and increased his pitch count to 75 in his most recent start at Springfield on August 6 vs. Tulsa.
