Anthony DeSclafani was marvelous in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Padres, tossing eight innings of five-hit shutout ball.
DeSclafani struck out five without walking a batter. He figures to sleep well tonight after throwing 117 pitches (77 strikes). Through his first four starts -- an oblique injury kept him off the mound for the first two months of the season -- the 26-year-old right-hander holds a sharp 1.52 ERA and slightly more dull 1.31 WHIP. He will look to continue rounding into form when he takes to the road for a date with the Nationals in his next scheduled start. Jun 26 - 3:56 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

His third start since coming off the disabled list was his best yet, as the right-hander gave up five hits and a walk while striking out six. He now owns a 2.30 ERA through those three starts, but his 1.66 WHIP speaks to the fact that he's still rounding into form. DeSclafani made a name for himself in 2015 and will look to continue knocking the rust off Sunday against the Padres.

Anthony DeSclafani was lifted with two outs in the third inning on Wednesday versus the Braves, having allowed four runs (only one earned) on six hits and three walks with two strikeouts.

There has been no word of an injury to account for the early trip to the showers. DeSclafani was making just his second start of the season after missing the first two months to an oblique injury. Due to the six hits, three walks and an error his pitch count was mounting quickly and he was relieved after making 76 offerings. He now has a 2.08 ERA in eight innings pitched for the season, even though he has walked more batters (six) than he has whiffed (four).

Returning from injury, Anthony DeSclafani held the Athletics to one run on eight hits in six innings but took a no-decision in his first start of the season in a 2-1 Reds victory on Friday.

DeSclafani did not blow Oakland hitters away, striking out only two while walking three. He gave up eight hits, including a home run to Stephen Vogt, but that was all the damage the Athletics could muster. This was DeSclafani's first game of the year after missing the first two months to an oblique injury. Pundits were high on the Reds' young righthander this winter after he finished his rookie campaign in strong fashion strong last year.

Reds activated Anthony DeSclafani from the 60-day disabled list.

When DeSclafani takes the mound against the A's on Friday night, he will be making his season debut. An oblique strain sidelined for the first two months of the season. For reference's sake, DeSclafani held a 4.05 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 151/55 K/BB ratio over 184 2/3 innings. If he is floating around on the waiver wire, those in deeper mixed-league formats would do well to take a chance here.

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) has been cleared to make his season debut Friday versus the Athletics.

DeSclafani made it through three rehab starts without issue and threw a successful side session on Tuesday in front of Reds management. He's been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with an oblique strain. The 26-year-old right-hander impressed to the tune of a 4.05 ERA and 151/55 K/BB ratio in 184 2/3 innings last season with Cincinnati and is a worthwhile pickup in deeper mixed leagues.
Jun 7 - 4:19 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) is on track to make his season debut for the Reds on Friday against the Athletics.

DeSclafani got through his final rehab start Saturday with no issues, so he'll officially be cleared to return Friday as long as his between-starts bullpen session goes well. The righty has been out all season with an oblique injury but makes for a fine stash in fantasy leagues if he's still available.
Jun 5 - 11:17 AM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) could join the Reds' rotation next week against the Cardinals.

He struck out seven batters over four innings of one-run ball Monday in his second rehab start with Triple-A Louisville. DeSclafani will make one more minor league appearance on Saturday before possibly taking the ball for the Reds next Thursday versus St. Louis. The right-hander has been out all season with an oblique strain. He was a popular fantasy sleeper before the injury and is worth a stash in deeper leagues.
May 31 - 6:20 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) will make two more rehab starts with Triple-A Louisville before rejoining the Reds' rotation.

DeSclafani's next rehab start is slated for Monday. "He threw 37 (pitches) and will get up close to 60 next time and we’d like to get him close to 85 in the third outing," manager Bryan Price said. "Then we’ll reassess." DeSclafani has been out all season with a strained oblique, but he's nearing a return and is a worthy roster stash if he's available in your league.
May 29 - 9:50 AM

Reds transferred RHP Anthony DeSclafani from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move frees up a 40-man roster spot. It doesn't change DeSclafani's timetable, as he's not far off from 60 days missed already. He's slated to resume a rehab assignment Wednesday and should rejoin the Reds' rotation in a couple weeks.
May 22 - 9:28 AM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) will resume his rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

DeSclafani made it through a live batting practice session without any issues on Friday and is ready to proceed to the next stage of his rehabilitation process. He's expected to need three rehab starts before being ready to rejoin the Reds rotation.
May 21 - 1:59 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) is set to resume his rehab assignment next week.

DeSclafani threw a 45-pitch live batting practice session on Friday without any issues. He had to shut down his rehab assignment three weeks ago after feeling more discomfort in his side, but it appears he's back on track. He's expected to make three rehab starts before rejoining the Reds' rotation, assuming all goes well.
May 20 - 4:03 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) threw a successful 25-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

It's the first time he's been able to throw off a mound since getting shut down last month. "I think this should be the last go-round, hopefully," said DeSclafani. "We'll see how I recover and how I feel after the next bullpen." DeSclafani was lined up to be the Reds' Opening Day starter but an oblique strain has kept him out since late March.
May 14 - 10:43 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) will throw his first bullpen session Saturday since having his rehab assignment shut down in late April.

DeSclafani injured his oblique during spring training and has since had two setbacks, most recently during a rehab start April 30. "It’s turned into the injury we were trying to avoid, and that’s one that has lasted as long as it has lasted," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "We thought we had it licked the last time and we obviously didn’t." The team is being more cautious this time around, leaving his timetable up in the air for now.
May 14 - 11:29 AM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) long-tossed from a distance of 100 feet on Monday.

It was his first time throwing since he felt discomfort in his side during a rehab start with Low-A Dayton on April 30. The plan is to bring him along slowly before resuming a minor league rehab stint, so he's still a ways off from joining the Reds.
