      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Six scoreless against Brewers

      Anthony DeSclafani (1-0) allowed two hits and one walk over six scoreless innings in a win over the Brewers on Saturday. He struck out six.After throwing 64 pitches last weekend in his return from a right teres major strain, DeSclafani built up to 88 pitches Saturday. The results were stellar once again -- DeSclafani has not allowed a run through 11 innings -- and in fact this ranks as a top-25 SP performance by Game Score this season. He lines up for a favorable home matchup against Pittsburgh next week.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Strong outing in 2020 debut

      Anthony DeSclafani allowed three hits over five scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Tigers in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.A right teres major strain put DeSclafani on the IL to begin the season. He showed very little rust in his return, working around a leadoff triple in the third inning and completing five frames on just 64 pitches. It was not the most dominant performance in terms of swinging strikes (six), but the right-hander averaged a strikeout per inning last season and the whiffs should come once he's fully up to speed. DeSclafani lines up to pitch in Milwaukee next weekend.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Activated prior to start

      The Cincinnati Reds activated Anthony DeSclafani (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list prior to his scheduled start Sunday in the first game of a doubleheader against the Tigers.DeSclafani will slide into the rotation spot vacated by Wade Miley (groin), who landed on the IL on Thursday. Since DeSclafani is returning from a right teres major strain, the Reds could be conservative with his workload in his first start of 2020, though manager David Bell hasn't specifically said whether the right-hander will be capped at a given number of pitches.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Set to return Saturday

      Anthony DeSclafani (shoulder) will start Saturday's game against the Tigers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.DeSclafani was placed on the injured list with a mild right teres major strain just before the season, but he progressed through his recovery quickly and will take the place of Wade Miley (groin) in the rotation since the latter is slated to land on the injured list Friday. DeSclafani pitched four innings in his final appearance in camp, but it's unclear whether he'll be at full strength in his first start back.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Getting innings built up

      Anthony DeSclafani threw four innings in Monday's scrimmage, and all the Cincinnati Reds' projected starting pitchers have worked at least three innings in one scrimmage so far, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.The Reds appear confident that they'll be at least close to full capacity by Opening Day. DeSclafani will go fifth in the Reds' rotation, meaning his first start will come on Tuesday, July 28 against the Cubs, followed by a Sunday start in Detroit on Aug. 1 if everything goes to plan.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Fine-tuning mechanics

      After overhauling his delivery last season, Anthony DeSclafani spent this offseason fine-tuning that more efficient delivery, with a specific emphasis on his curveball, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.The curveball is the key to improving DeSclafani's performance against left-handers. Last season, the hurler allowed a .795 OPS to left-handers as opposed to a .638 OPS against right-handers. That's actually a considerable improvement over 2018, when lefties had a .917 OPS against him, and that improvement can largely be chalked up to his curveball.
