    • DeSclafani (elbow) said he threw all his pitches during instructional league games in Arizona and feels he'll be ready for the start of spring training, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. DeSclafani was limited to a pair of minor-league rehab appearances in 2017 while battling a UCL sprain in his right elbow last spring that prevented him from toeing the rubber for the MLB club at any point. He was shut down while rehabbing after experiencing tendinitis, but his strong showing during instructionals set the right-hander up for a normal offseason. The Reds are hopeful that DeSclafani, who is eligible for arbitration this winter, will re-emerge as an anchor for the rotation in 2018.

    • Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Taken off DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      DeSclafani (elbow) was removed from the 60-day DL on Friday. The right-hander missed the entire 2017 season with elbow problems, and was officially ruled out in late August after being diagnosed with elbow tendinitis just a few weeks prior. Looking ahead, the 27-year-old should be fully healthy and ready for action by the time spring training begins.

    • Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: May not return this season
      By RotoWire Staff

      Reds manager Bryan Price suggested Wednesday that DeSclafani (elbow) isn't likely to come off the 60-day disabled list to pitch for the big club in September, Andy Call of MLB.com reports. "We have to get [DeSclafani] to the point where we have somewhat of an idea of a workload that can help make sure his elbow is in a good enough spot to go into the offseason," Price said. "We need to build up a body of work that builds confidence he is going to be able to get through this elbow issue." DeSclafani has been sidelined all season with elbow problems, with his most recent setback coming during his July 29 rehab start with Low-A Dayton. The right-hander was later diagnosed with elbow tendinitis and was cleared to resume a throwing program last week, but it doesn't sound like the non-contending Reds are eager to rush him back into action with the big club in the season's final month. After throwing a 20-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Desclafani will pitch off the mound again Friday, before perhaps facing hitters during the upcoming week. If DeSclafani is able to avoid any further hiccups in the recovery process over the next few weeks, the Reds could allow him to pitch in some Arizona Fall League games in attempt to build his arm back up heading into next spring.

    • Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Resumes throwing
      By RotoWire Staff

      DeSclafani (elbow) resumed a throwing program after a second opinion confirmed he was dealing with elbow tendinitis, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. DeSclafani is back on track after forearm discomfort briefly interrupted his rehab from a strained UCL. He'll need to build his pitch count back up, so a return to the Reds this season remains up in the air. A revised timetable for his possible return should become clearer once he's able to resume a rehab assignment.

    • DeSclafani (elbow) isn't expected to miss much time due to the forearm discomfort he experienced in his most recent rehab start, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The injury appears to be fairly minor, thankfully, and Buchanan adds that no further operations (including Tommy John surgery that's frequently associated with forearm tightness) are expected to be necessary. DeSclafani appears to be close to returning from the DL, although this setback likely pushes his return timetable into late August at the earliest.
