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.

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.

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

DeSclafani owns a 6.84 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings over five starts with the Marlins this season. The back-end of the Marlins' rotation is far from settled at this point, so he could make another start or two this month.

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

The 24-year-old right-hander has appeared in seven games for the Marlins (five starts), registering a 6.84 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 20/5 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. He should return once rosters expand in September.

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

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

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.
Fri, Jun 27, 2014 09:01:00 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.
