Disappointment – T. J. McFarland
He’s not playing to the expectation the Cardinals had when they signed him to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million. It’s frustrating to see, for sure.
On Thursday, he pitched 1.1 innings, giving up three hits and two earned runs. For the season, he’s had 18 outings, pitching 20 innings with an ERA of 7.65.
Will the Cardinals allow him to improve in reward for what he brought to the team in 2021 or ask what he’s done for them lately? As the Cardinals gain more options from the minor leagues and through returns from the injured list, it will be interesting to see what, if anything, this could mean for McFarland.
