Anthony DeSclafani gave up five runs over five-plus innings in a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.
The Cubs scored in the final four innings in which DeSclafani appeared. He allowed a leadoff home run to Starlin Castro to begin the sixth and issued a walk before exiting. Overall, he gave up eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight. DeSclafani heads into the off-season with a 4.05 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 151/55 K/BB ratio over 184 2/3 innings. He finished with a few subpar outings but he could provide some late-round value in deeper drafts next season. Wed, Sep 30, 2015 10:26:00 PM

Anthony DeSclafani was knocked around for seven runs (six earned) over 6 1/3 innings Friday against the Mets.

The final run scored after he was pulled from the game. DeSclafani gave up allowed nine hits, including the first of two three-run homers from Lucas Duda. The rookie right-hander has allowed 12 runs (10 earned) over 10 2/3 innings over his last two starts, increasing his ERA from 3.67 to 3.91 on the year. He'll attempt to bounce back in his final start of the season next week against the Cubs.

Anthony DeSclafani struggled in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, surrendering five runs (four earned) on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

DeSclafani struck out 10 Cardinals in his last start, but he cratered back to earth in Sunday's loss to the Brewers. All five runs on his line scored in the fifth inning. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out three without walking a batter and will bring his 3.79 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 140/53 K/BB ratio across 173 1/3 innings into a home showdown with the Mets next time he toes the rubber.

Anthony DeSclafani was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Cardinals, racking up 10 strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball.

The right-hander allowed just four hits and a walk in his six frames. The only blemish on his afternoon was an RBI single by Jason Heyward in the first inning. DeSclafani has emerged as the ace in the Reds all-rookie starting rotation and now owns a respectable 3.67 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 137/53 K/BB ratio over 169 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he takes on the Brewers in Milwaukee on Friday.

Anthony DeSclafani yielded one run over 7 1/3 innings in Monday's 3-1 win over the Pirates.

The lone run scored in the eighth. DeSclafani scattered seven hits while walking none and striking out six en route to his first win since August 4. The 25-year-old right-hander has had some ups and downs this year, but he has managed a respectable 3.75 ERA and 127/52 K/BB ratio in 163 innings over 27 starts. He'll get the Cardinals this weekend.

Anthony DeSclafani allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

DeSclafani faltered in his final inning, allowing a single, a wild pitch, a walk, and a run-scoring single before departing with two outs. Reliever Sam LeCure allowed his inherited runner to score. On the evening, the right-hander gave up four hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. DeSclafani has mostly been solid for the Reds this season, carrying a 3.87 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP, and a 121/52 K/BB ratio over 155 2/3 innings. He'll face the Pirates in a home start next.

Anthony DeSclafani was on his game in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing just one run on six hits over seven innings.

DeSclafani bounced back nicely from a six-run fiasco against the Diamondbacks in his last start, holding off the Dodger offense over seven innings. The only run to score against him--and to score in the game--came home on a double play ball by Yasmani Grandal in the second inning. For the afternoon, he struck out six and walked one. He'll head to Wrigley Field in his next start, carrying a 3.84 ERA and 1.36 WHIP along with him.

Anthony DeSclafani was knocked around in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks, yielding six runs on 10 hits over five innings.

The game started out poorly enough, as DeSclafani allowed a pair of home runs in the very first inning. Ender Inciarte led off with a solo shot against the right-hander and Paul Goldschmidt followed that with a two-run dinger a short while later. This was one of the pitcher's tougher starts of the season and he'll take his 3.97 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into a home outing against the Dodgers as he attempts to right the ship.

Anthony DeSclafani suffered a tough luck loss against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing just two runs on six hits over his six frames.

DeSclafani fanned six on the day while walking two. He was locked in a scoreless duel with Zack Greinke until the fifth inning where Joc Pederson and Greinke himself hit back-to-back solo home runs, providing all of the offense the Dodgers would need. Tasked with being the ace of the current Reds staff, DeSclafani will head into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks looking to further improve upon his 3.72 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

Anthony DeSclafani posted a quality start in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, allowing three runs on 10 hits over six innings.

As you might guess by the 10 hits allowed, this was not a good start by DeSclafani. It didn't do much damage to his ERA, though, with a solitary run scoring in the first inning and two more scoring in the fifth before he left the game an inning later. The 25-year-old right-hander holds a 3.75 ERA and 1.36 WHIP, numbers which he'll take into a road match-up with the Dodgers.

Anthony DeSclafani allowed two runs over six innings to earn the win against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

DeSclafani, who beat the Cardinals his last time out, struck out nine while allowing seven hits over his six innings. The right-hander improved to 7-7 on the year with the win. DeSclafani now owns a 3.71 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 21 starts this year. He'll next take on the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Anthony DeSclafini shut out the Cardinals for seven innings, allowing just three hits, to win Wednesday.

DeSclafini won for the first time since June 9. He's been pretty mediocre since opening the season with a 1.04 ERA in April, but there's little reason to be disappointed. Some thought he might be a long-term reliever when the Reds picked him up from the Marlins in the Mat Latos trade, but he's shown enough to suggest he'll last as a middle-of-the-rotation guy instead.

Anthony DeSclafani yielded three runs over seven innings a no-decision against the Rockies on Friday.

DeSclafani held the Rockies scoreless over the first four innings before giving up two runs in the fifth and a solo shot to Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. He struck out five and walked two en route to completing seven innings for the first time since June 4, but he's winless over his last seven starts. He'll try to change that when he faces the Cardinals in St. Louis next week.
Sat, Jul 25, 2015 12:43:00 AM

Anthony DeSclafani was drilled for six earned runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Indians.

Michael Brantley homered off him in the top of the first inning and Brandon Moss launched one in the top of the third. DeSclafani now stands 5-7 with a 3.99 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 18 starts this season for the Reds. The inconsistency continues for the 25-year-old.
Sat, Jul 18, 2015 10:40:00 PM

Anthony DeSclafani got a no-decision after yielding two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but the Reds pulled out a late victory on Monday against the Nationals.

DeSclafani allowed five hits and walked four while striking out six. Despite allowing only two runs, it registers among his poorer outings on the season. He owns a 3.65 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 74/41 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. DeSclafani will take on the Marlins in a road start next.
