San Diego Padres
Jordan Lyles has made six starts and 13 appearances out of the bullpen so far this season. His relief numbers are noticeably better than his numbers as a starter, however.
Lyles is allowing a .278/.329/.489 opponent slash line as a starter and just a .194/.275/.319 opponent line as a relief pitcher.
You would think the Padres would try something different, but they will continue to run him out as a starter on Monday.
They may not see a lot of other options, but clearly Lyles’ numbers are suffering because of how he’s being used.
“Necessity is the mother of invention.” It would be nice to see San Diego try something to put its pitching staff in a better position to succeed.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals drafted Jack Flaherty in the first round in 2014. He made five starts last season without much success, finishing 0–2 with middling peripherals.
His rookie status remains intact this season and he’s looking a lot more comfortable as a 22-year-old. He’s 2–2 with an ERA+ in the 120s and a WHIP under 1.20.
With Alex Reyes on the shelf and the inevitable injuries that seem to bite the Cardinals, particularly in the pitching staff, every year, guys like Flaherty and Luke Weaver don’t have much time to be developing young pitchers.
The time is now for Flaherty, who is off of a loss to the Marlins to begin June after a fantastic month of May.

Free San Diego Padres vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: St. Louis.
San Diego has been a good bet this season but I like Flaherty over Lyles and St. Louis is always strong at home.
