DeSclafani signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Giants on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
DeSclafani should land a spot in the Giants' rotation in 2021 after spending the past five seasons in Cincinnati. The right-hander struggled last season, posting a 7.22 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 33.2 innings, and he wasn't included on the Reds' roster for the NL Wild Card Series. DeSclafani has been effective as a starter in past seasons, and he'll attempt to return to form in San Francisco.
DeSclafani did not make the Reds' roster for the NL Wild Card Series.
If he had made the roster, he would have only been used as a mop-up man out of the bullpen. DeSclafani has a 10.72 ERA and 2.25 WHIP over his last 22.2 innings.
DeSclafani gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over 4.2 innings during Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against Pittsburgh. He didn't factor into the decision.
DeSclafani surrendered a run in the first, one in the fourth and two in the fifth, but his team would rally for three runs in the fifth, ultimately resulting in a 9-4 victory. He struggled to work ahead in the count, throwing first-pitch strikes to just 12 of the 22 batters he faced. DeSclafani owns an ugly 7.28 ERA and 1.75 WHIP with a 23:15 K:BB over 29.2 frames this year.
DeSclafani is scheduled to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Pirates, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The Reds bypassed DeSclafani for a start this past weekend in favor of Tejay Antone, but the former will re-enter the rotation as Cincinnati kicks off its four-game series against Pittsburgh with a twin bill. Given that the Reds moved Sonny Gray (back) to the 10-day injured list Sunday, DeSclafani should be in a good position to stick in the rotation when Cincinnati pares its starting staff back down to five men beginning Wednesday. DeSclafani hasn't lived up to the sleeper potential he held heading into fantasy drafts, posting a 7.20 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through six starts.
DeSclafani is not scheduled to start this weekend against the Cardinals, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 30-year-old hasn't completed five innings during a start since Aug. 8 and has surrendered 20 runs over those four outings, and he won't be taking the mound this weekend in St. Louis. Tejay Antone will receive another start in his place for the Reds, though DeSclafani could still start during Monday's doubleheader against the Pirates.
DeSclafani didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Pirates, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over four-plus innings. He struck out two.
The right-hander appeared headed for his second win of the season after a four-run third inning by the Reds, but after DeSclafani walked Bryan Reynolds to lead off the fifth he got the hook and fell short of qualifying. DeSclafani threw 83 pitches (49 strikes) in this one but hasn't been able to complete five innings in any of his last four appearances. He'll carry a 7.20 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 16:14 K:BB through 25 IP into his next outing Friday in St. Louis.
DeSclafani (1-2) took the loss Monday as the Reds fell 7-5 to the Cardinals, surrendering seven runs on seven hits and four walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out three.
The right-hander had no feel for the strike zone after returning from the paternity list over the weekend, throwing only 48 of 92 pitches for strikes. When he did get the ball over the plate, bad things tended to happen -- DeSclafani was scored upon in all four of his frames, and his last pitch left the yard for a grand slam. The disastrous outing inflated his ERA by two whole runs, and he'll take a rough 7.71 mark into his next start Saturday in Pittsburgh.
DeSclafani was activated from the paternity list Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 30-year-old was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, but he'll rejoin the team for the weekend after spending some time with his family. DeSclafani could take the mound during Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.
DeSclafani was placed on the paternity list Tuesday.
He can miss no more than three games on the paternity list, so he will be able to return to the team in time for his scheduled start Friday against the Cubs.
DeSclafani allowed two runs on three hits and four walks over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Cardinals on Friday. He struck out two.
It wasn't a spectacular outing for DeSclafani -- the four walks were a season-high for the righty -- but he left the Reds in a good position. A pinch-hit grand slam from Matt Davidson took DeSclafani off the hook. He's posted a 5.71 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 17.1 innings. The 30-year-old lines up to face the Brewers on the road Thursday.
DeSclafani (1-1) allowed nine earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out one across two innings to take the loss Thursday against the Pirates.
DeSclafani surrendered two solo home runs in the first inning, but really came unraveled in the second frame. He allowed nine of the first 10 batters he faced to reach base, including a leadoff home run to Gregory Polanco. After the game, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that DeSclafani was tipping his pitches. DeSclafani had yet to allow an earned run across 11 innings this season prior to this outing, so he'll look to get on track on his next turn through the rotation, currently projected to come Wednesday at Kansas City.
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.
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.
The Reds activated 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.
DeSclafani (shoulder) will start Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Tigers.
The 30-year-old opened the season on the injured list with a right teres strain, but it won't end up costing him too much of the season. DeSclafani made 31 starts for the Reds last season and had a 3.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 167:49 K:BB over 166.2 innings.
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.
DeSclafani (right teres major strain) has resumed throwing already and is on pace to return after missing only one start, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Tyler Mahle will replace DeSclafani against the Cubs on Tuesday night. His next turn is scheduled for Sunday against the Tigers. Wade Miley had a disastrous start Monday against the Cubs, though, so the Reds could consider that spot as a possibility as well.
DeSclafani was placed on the injured list Thursday with a mild right teres major strain.
This is a tough break for DeSclafani, who was on track to start the fifth game of the season for Cincinnati. Per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, the injury isn't thought to be anything overly serious, and the right-hander could return after missing just one start. Tyler Mahle will likely take his place in the rotation for the time being.
DeSclafani threw four innings in Monday's scrimmage, and all the 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.
DeSclafani pitched in two official spring training games (with his other work coming in simulated games), allowing just one earned run on three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out four.
Just making it to the Opening Day bell has been a challenge some years for DeSclafani, but he made it through 2019 unscathed. The Reds are hoping for continued health and progress against left-handed hitters from the 29-year-old.
