Carlos Martinez
RHP, 0-2, 6.30 ERA, 5 SO
Two turns through the rotation, no Cardinals starter was more reliable than Martínez by durability standards as he was the only one to pitch at least five innings each start. Not the highest bar, but the right-hander will look to build off allowing three runs over five frames last outing.
vs.


Zach Eflin
RHP, 0-0, 3.46 ERA, 10 SO
Following a rainout in the series finale against the Mets on Thursday, Zach Eflin will instead take the bump Friday when the Phillies host the Cardinals. Eflin has made just one career regular-season start against St. Louis, when he pitched 4 2/3 innings in a 7-6 Phils win on May 19, 2018.

Kwang Hyun Kim
The Cardinals' left-hander will make his awaited 2021 debut in Philadelphia after a stellar rookie season. Sidelined by a back issue, Kim struggled in Spring Training and will now be relied upon heavily to help a scuffling rotation.
vs.


Matt Moore
LHP, 0-0, 7.56 ERA, 9 SO
Moore has struggled in his first two starts with the Phillies, getting tagged for 13 hits, seven runs, four walks and two home runs in just 8 1/3 innings. The Phillies will be patient with Moore, whom they signed to stabilize the back of the rotation.

John Gant
RHP, 0-1, 3.00 ERA 8 SO
Surviving the first round of rotation shuffling, Gant will look to cement his place as a starter after battling through five innings, allowing three runs, last time out. Though Gant has been inefficient at times, he's been able to find the strikeout pitches he's needed.
vs.


Aaron Nola
RHP, 0-1, 3.45 ERA, 18 SO
Nola was not at his sharpest against the Mets on April 13, needing 92 pitches to get through five innings in which he allowed three runs on seven hits. He hasn't had a good feel for his sinker, to date.
