Anthony DeSclafani failed to give the Reds length in Saturday's loss to the Marlins, yielding three runs on four hits in five innings.

All three runs off DeSclafani scored in the fourth inning when the 25-year-old right-hander allowed a monster solo homer to Derek Dietrich (the bomb was measured at an estimated 439 feet), an RBI ground out to Justin Bour and an RBI double to J.T. Realmuto. DeSclafani struck out three and walked three in the contest. He's pitched well on the whole this season and holds a 3.48 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 56/33 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings. He'll take to the road against the Pirates in his next start.

Anthony DeSclafani pitched well in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday, allowing just one run on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

DeSclafani racked up five strikeouts on the evening while walking two. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly by Dexter Fowler in the seventh inning. He's enjoying a sold season in the middle of the Reds rotation, compiling a 3.36 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 53/30 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Marlins on Friday.

Anthony DeSclafani picked up his fifth win, limiting the Phillies to two runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Reds skated to an 11-2 victory on Tuesday.

DeSclafani worked around 10 hits and a walk as the Phillies were only able to go 2-for-9 with runners in scoring position. He also struck out seven batters. The right-hander has been productive in 12 starts thus far, carrying a 3.53 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 48/28 K/BB ratio over 71 1/3 innings. DeSclafani will toe the rubber against the Cubs at Wrigley Field next.
Jun 9 - 11:01 PM

Despite striking out none, Anthony DeSclafini picked up a win against the Phillies on Thursday, allowing four runs over seven innings.

DeSclafini struck out at least five in each of his first five starts. He's done so just twice in his last six outings, which is a big reason why his ERA continues to rise. He doesn't seem like a good bet to reemerge as a mixed-league option.
Jun 4 - 10:03 PM

Anthony DeSclafani gave up two runs over six innings in a 5-2 win over the Nationals on Friday.

DeSclafani held the Nationals to a pair of RBI singles. He gave up eight hits in all while walking two (one intentional) and striking out just one batter. This was his first win since April 20. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 3.41 ERA through 10 starts this season, but he owns a mediocre 41/25 K/BB ratio in 58 innings.
May 29 - 10:27 PM

Anthony DeSclafani was left with a no-decision despite hurling seven innings of one-run ball Saturday against the Indians.

DeSclafani gave up only three hits and struck out six, but Cincinnati's offense didn't muster much support in an eventual 2-1 loss at Cleveland's Progressive Field. DeSclafani stands 2-4 with a 3.46 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 40/23 K/BB ratio in 52 innings this season. The 25-year-old right-hander continues to show flashes of promise.
May 23 - 6:55 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed six earned runs over three innings Sunday in the Reds' loss to the Giants.

DeSclafani was tagged for four runs in the top of the second inning and two in the top of the third on a wet, ugly day at Great American Ball Park. The right-hander walked three and gave up six hits while striking out only two. He's been shaky now in four straight outings. DeSclafani will try to right the ship next week in Cleveland.
May 17 - 5:10 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed three runs in six innings, taking a no-decision as the Reds won 4-3 over the Braves in walk-off fashion on Tuesday.

DeSclafani was staked to an early 2-0 lead, but gave it back in the third inning on a Kelly Johnson double and an Alberto Callaspo sacrifice fly. In the fourth, he allowed another run to score when Nick Markakis doubled in the go-ahead run. He gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out five. DeSclafani sports a 2.79 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a 32/18 K/BB ratio in 32 innings. He'll match up with the Giants at home the next time he takes the hill.
May 12 - 10:48 PM

Anthony DeSclafini gave up three runs and walked four in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Pirates.

After opening the season with a 0.86 ERA in three starts, DeSclafini has allowed 12 runs -- eight earned -- over 15 innings in his last three outings, walking 11 batters in the process. There's just no reason for him to be issuing so many free passes, and unless he reverses the trend quickly, there could be some Triple-A time in his future.
May 7 - 11:08 PM

Anthony DeSclafani struggled in a losing effort against the Braves on Friday, allowing four runs on four hits over his five innings.

DeSclafani struck out five but also issued five walks on the night. He cruised through the first three innings unscathed until opposing starter Mike Foltynewicz slashed a two-run double in the fourth inning and Kelly Johnson blasted a two-run bomb in the fifth. Even with the rough outing, the young right-hander will carry an impressive 2.03 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 26/11 K/BB ratio into Thursday's start against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
May 1 - 10:20 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed five runs -- one earned -- over five innings Sunday in the Reds' loss to the Cubs.

DeSclafani was victimized by fielding errors from Todd Frazier and Brandon Phillips in taking his first loss of the 2015 season. Because four of the Cubs' runs were unearned, DeSclafani still boasts a shiny 1.04 ERA in 26 innings to go along with a 0.77 WHIP and 21/6 K/BB ratio. He'll hope for some better defense next Friday in Atlanta.
Apr 26 - 4:10 PM

Saturday's game between the Cubs and the Reds has been postponed due to rain.

The teams sat through a four-hour rain delay before the game was called. No makeup date has been announced. Anthony DeSclafani and Jake Arrieta will have their starts pushed back to Sunday. The Cubs won 7-3 Friday in the series opener.
Apr 25 - 5:33 PM

Anthony DeSclafani held the Brewers scoreless over eight innings on Monday as the Reds won 6-1.

Though it was against the lowly Brewers, DeSclafani gave up only two hits and a walk while striking out five. DeSclafani was a popular sleeper pick coming into the season and he's already paying dividends. The right-hander owns a 0.86 ERA, a 0.62 WHIP, and a 16/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings. DeSclafani will attempt to remain undefeated in his next start at home versus the Cubs.
Apr 20 - 9:59 PM

Anthony DeSclafani threw seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits, as the Reds edged the Cubs 3-2 on Tuesday.

DeSclafani walked two to go with his two hits allowed, striking out five in the win. He's now turned in two good starts to begin the year, owning a 1.38 ERA and 0.77 WHIP through 13 innings. The win was his first of the season, and he'll look to add another Monday at the Brewers.
