Marlins recalled RHP Anthony DeSclafani from Triple-A New Orleans.

DeSclafani holds a 7.40 ERA over five starts for the Fish this season but will be used in relief this time. He'll give the Marlins an option to eat innings in the middle of a game.

Marlins recalled RHP Anthony DeSclafani from Triple-A New Orleans.

DeSclafani will presumably join the rotation, though it's unclear when he'll make a start. The young right-hander has posted a 7.40 ERA over 24 1/3 innings this year for the Marlins.

Marlins optioned RHP Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans.

DeSclafani has a 7.40 ERA in 24 1/3 innings this year for Miami. It could be a while before he gets another try.
Jun 28 - 9:21 PM

Anthony DeSclafani gave up two earned runs over three innings in a 9-5 loss to the Oakland A's on Friday. DeSclafani did not factor into the decision.

DeSclafani was pulled after only 42 pitches with what the Marlins are calling a "right forearm contusion." Brandon Moss smacked a hard liner off of DeSclafani in the first inning, and while DeSclafani stayed in for another two frames, the Marlins pulled him to start the fourth in favor of Brian Flynn. To that point, he had given up two earned runs and five hits, to go with three strikeouts. It remains to be seen if DeSclafani makes his next start. Beyond the injury concern, his ERA sits at a robust 7.40.

Anthony DeSclafani was forced to leave Friday's start against the Athletics after three innings due to a right forearm contusion.

He sustained the injury when he was hit by a batted ball off the bat of Brandon Moss in the first inning. He was able to tough it out through three frames, surrendering a pair of runs on five hits, before giving way to Brian Flynn. He should be cleared to make his next start, provided the Marlins wish to give him another trip through the rotation.
Jun 27 - 9:01 PM

Anthony DeSclafani was hammered for seven earned runs over 3 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Mets.

DeSclafani surrendered two walks and seven hits in the disastrous outing. He now has a 7.59 ERA in 21 1/3 innings this year and probably isn't long for the Miami rotation.
Jun 22 - 4:23 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Tuesday.

Making his third start of the season, and first as a bonafide member of the Marlins rotation, DeSclafani struck out five and walked one. He's given up a home run in each of his first three starts, a trend that could become an issue, but he's got a 14/3 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings. The right-hander has a date with the Mets on Sunday.

Marlins recalled RHP Anthony DeSclafani from Triple-A New Orleans.

DeSclafani earned a win in his major league debut last month against the Dodgers and will now get an extended look in the Marlins' rotation. The 24-year-old righty may be worth a try in NL-only fantasy leagues.
Jun 16 - 2:56 PM

Marlins optioned RHP Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans.

DeSclafani had a nice outing to earn his first major league win in his debut, but the right-hander allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Tuesday. He should get another shot with the club later in the season. The Marlins will make a corresponding roster move before Thursday's game.
May 21 - 11:13 PM

Anthony DeSclafani struggled in his second career start, allowing five runs in 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

DeSclafani gave up two first-inning runs, then settled down. The Phillies caught up to him as the rookie tired in the fifth and sixth innings, however. The 24-year-old right-hander allowed six hits and walked one while striking out only two. He'll look to bounce back in his next start against the Brewers at home.
May 20 - 11:56 PM

Anthony DeSclafani will remain in the Marlins' rotation for now.

The thought was that the Marlins would add the newly signed Randy Wolf to their rotation, but DeSclafani pitched so well in his major league debut Wednesday that he'll be given another shot. The 24-year-old is worth a look in NL-only leagues.
May 15 - 8:37 PM

Making his major league debut, Anthony DeSclafani fired six innings of two-run ball in Dodger Stadium to lead the Marlins to a 13-3 victory.

He allowed seven hits, walked one, punched out seven batters, and even had two RBI at the plate. DeSclafani, recalled from Double-A Jacksonville earlier in the day, took Jose Fernandez's (elbow) spot in the rotation. Miami's No. 5 prospect (according to Baseball America) came over in the 12-player Jose Reyes trade with the Blue Jays. DeSclafani is a late bloomer, a shaky college reliever whom Toronto taught to refine secondary pitches during a transition to starting. He doesn't have the ace upside of Andrew Heaney, but DeSclafani could be a reliable inning muncher for years. NL-only owners should snap him up.
May 15 - 1:34 AM

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Anthony DeSclafani from Double-A Jacksonville.

DeSclafani will make his major league debut on Wednesday versus the Dodgers, taking Jose Fernandez's (elbow) spot in the rotation. It's a bit of a surprise that the Marlins dipped into the minors and didn't come out with Andrew Heaney, but they probably have service time issues in mind. Ranked before the season by Baseball America as the team's No. 5 prospect, DeSclafani has posted a 4.19 ERA and 38/10 K/BB ratio over 43 innings this season at Jacksonville. He's worth a shot in NL-only leagues.
