St. Louis Cardinals Media Notes (Tuesday September 3)
MOLINA IS NL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Yadier Molina was recognized today as National League Player of the Week for the Aug. 26-Sept. 1 period. The 37-year-old catcher slashed .579/.636/1.368 (11-19) with four homers, three doubles, eight RBI, and a 2.005 OPS in six games played.
This is Molina’s first Player of the Week award of his 16-year career and first by a Cardinal since Paul Goldschmidt (July 22-28, 2019).
FLAHERTY IS NL PITCHER OF THE MONTH
Jack Flaherty was recognized today as National League Pitcher of the Month of August after going 4-1 with a 0.71 ERA and 47 strikeouts in six starts, while limiting the opposition to 19 hits and nine walks. The 23-year-old right-hander ranked among August NL leaders in wins (4, T1st), ERA (0.71, 1st), innings (38.0, T3rd), strikeouts (47, T3rd), opp. AVG (.145, 2nd), and WHIP (0.74, 1st).
Flaherty is the first Cardinal to win Pitcher of the Month since Adam Wainwright in September 2014.
