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.
Apr 14 - 11:23 PM

Anthony DeSclafani limited the Pirates to two runs over six innings Thursday in the Reds' win.

DeSclafani was left with a no-decision because the Reds didn't take the lead until the ninth inning. The 25-year-old right-hander pitched pretty well overall, holding the Bucs to five hits and a walk while striking out six. He had a very good spring and is a favorite fantasy sleeper for some in 2015. DeSclafani will face the Cubs at Wrigley Field next time out.
Apr 9 - 4:43 PM

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.
Mar 30 - 8:45 PM

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.
