Wainwright, 36, was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday morning and pitched in the series finale in San Diego – a 5-3 loss. The right-hander was pulled after he re-aggravated his elbow injury, Sunday.

Flaherty, 22, made two starts for the Cardinals earlier this season (April 3 at Milwaukee and April 28 at Pittsburgh), going 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA while striking out 11 batters in 10.0 innings pitched.

In five starts for Memphis, Flaherty was 4-1 with a 2.27 ERA (2nd in the Pacific Coast League) and 41 strikeouts (T5th in PCL).   He fanned a season-high 13 batters in his most recent start on May 9 at Oklahoma City.

Flaherty wears uniform no. 32.
