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 disappoint. 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 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.
Jul 25 - 12:43 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.
Jul 18 - 10:40 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.
Jul 6 - 10:32 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed six runs on 11 hits over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

DeSclafani managed to stay mostly dry through the first six innings, allowing three runs but keeping the Twins from putting up a crooked number, but things didn't go so well in the seventh. Two inherited runners being allowed to score didn't help his cause. On the bright side, he did strike out seven in the effort. The loss dropped DeSclafani to 5-6 with a 3.68 ERA and 1.35 WHIP through 16 starts. The 25-year-old will try to bounce back Monday at the Nationals.
Jul 1 - 12:31 AM

Anthony DeSclafini surrendered four runs -- one earned -- in six innings Thursday against the Pirates.

A Eugenio Suarez error fueled the three-run second inning, but it's still on DeSclafini that he gave up a two-run single to A.J. Burnett afterwards. DeSclafini ended up allowing six hits, walking two and striking out five. He hit a little rough patch in the first half of May, but he has a 2.89 ERA over his last seven starts.
Jun 26 - 1:02 AM

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.
Jun 20 - 9:48 PM

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.
Jun 15 - 12:06 AM

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.
