Anthony DeSclafani was touched up for six runs over six innings of work on Monday against the Padres.
He walked just one and struck out four, but DeSclafani was undone by the longball, serving up three homers. It's a hiccup in what has otherwise been a great spring, as the soon-to-be 25-year-old entered the day with a 1.83 Cactus League ERA. DeSclafani will open the season in the Reds' rotation.

Date:

Anthony DeSclafani went four scoreless innings in Saturday's start against the Rockies.

DeSclafani scattered two hits and two walks while fanning three. The right-hander is in the mix for a spot at the back of the Reds' starting rotation. DeSclafani made his major league debut with the Marlins last season and wrapped up the season with a 6.27 ERA over 33 innings.
Mar 14 - 7:24 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed one run over two innings in Wednesday's Cactus League loss to the Indians.

DeSclafani gave a one-out double to Carlos Moncrief, who advanced to third base on a fielding error by first baseman Chris Dominguez and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. The right-hander, acquired from the Marlins during the offseason, appears to have a good shot at making the Reds' rotation. Despite a 6.27 ERA in 33 innings last season, DeSclafani posted an impressive 26/5 K/BB ratio, which gives him a lot of utility if he can repeat it over a larger sample size.
Mar 4 - 5:49 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said that Anthony DeSclafani is "certainly one of the favorites to make our rotation."

As it stands right now, Tony Cingrani and DeSclafani look like the favorites to come away with the No. 4 and No. 5 spots, respectively. However, they'll face competition from Cuban Raisel Iglesias, David Holmberg, Dylan Axelrod and Jason Marquis. Acquired from the Marlins in the Mat Latos trade, DeSclafani struggled in his brief time in the majors in 2014 but boasts a career 3.23 ERA in the minors and has middle-of-the-rotation upside.
Jan 25 - 9:52 AM

Reds acquired RHP Anthony DeSclafani and C Chad Wallach from the Marlins for RHP Mat Latos.

DeSclafani registered a troubling 6.27 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 33 innings (five starts and eight relief appearances) this past season for the Marlins, but he has good minor league numbers. The 24-year-old right-hander will presumably compete for a spot in the Reds' Opening Day starting rotation next spring in Arizona.

Anthony DeSclafani was reinstated from his suspension on Friday.

The 24-year-old hurler was given a three-game ban after intentionally hitting Carlos Gomez with a pitch on September 11. He's in the midst of a brutal season, compiling a 6.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP through his 31 1/3 frames.
