Cardinals pitcher Jack Flaherty celebrates arbitration win by tweeting Michael Jordan meme

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jack Flaherty won his arbitration hearing Saturday and is set to make $3.9 million this coming season. 

The Cardinals offered Flaherty $3 million following a 2020 season in which he finished 4-3 with a 4.91 ERA in 40 1/3 innings. 

This is Flaherty's first time going through the arbitration process; he will be eligible for free agency following the 2023 season. 

A year removed from declining a contract from the Cardinals that he was unsatisfied with, Flaherty — who finished fourth in National League Cy Young voting in 2019 —  didn't shy away from making his feelings on the arbitration process (and his victory) known and channeled a popular Michael Jordan line from "The Last Dance."
