Reds' Anthony DeSclafani takes first loss Sunday vs. Cubs
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani was stuck with his first loss of the season Sunday, giving up five runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks in five innings while striking out five in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Cubs.
DeSclafani (2-1) surrendered a solo home run in the second inning then watched the Cubs plate four runners in the fourth as his defense committed two errors in the inning. The Reds starter has yet to surrender more than two earned runs in any of his four starts while posting a 1.04 ERA and 21:6 K:BB ratio in 26 innings. He's slated to face the Braves in Atlanta Friday.

|(4/25/15) The Cubs and Reds have officially postponed Saturday's game in Chicago due to inclement weather, the team's announced. The game, originally scheduled to be played at 1 p.m., was delayed over four hours before officials decided to move the game to a later date, which is yet to be determined.
Cubs scheduled starter Jake Arrieta and Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani will be Sunday's starters, pushing back everyone in both rotations one day, the teams announced.
Confidence a driving force behind Anthony DeSclafani's fast start
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Reds starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has been pitching like a Cy Young candidate to begin the 2015 season, opening the year with a 2-0 record and 0.86 ERA in three starts.
It's been a nice turnaround for the right-hander, who struggled in his first stint in the majors in 2014 with the Marlins.
"Obviously, I believe in myself," DeSclafani said, per MLB.com. "Any big leaguer who is up here believes in himself. I just try to stay consistent in my mindset, on a day-to-day basis, on an outing-to-outing basis.
"You've just got to do your best to execute your pitches and let the defense play behind you. And they've been phenomenal. I've felt great with this team since Day 1. They've been really great and supportive, and I can't ask for anything more than that."
The Reds have been particularly impressed with DeSclafani's approach, makeup and demeanor.
"He's just an inherently confident guy," manager Bryan Price said. "That's one thing we ask our pitchers to do, is to be emotionally stable when they pitch. He's throwing the ball really well; he's throwing three pitches for strikes. He's doing all the little things. He's got a really nice changeup that he's developed here through spring training and into the early part of the season. I think it's a necessary pitch for Anthony to be a quality starting pitcher.
"There's something to be said for young guys getting their feet wet at the big-league level and he's done it with some style. He's been very effective for us. We hope to see that trend continue."
Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani dominates in win Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani tossed eight scoreless innings in Cincinnati's 6-1 win over the Brewers Monday.
DeSclafani worked efficiently throughout the start, allowing just two hits in the outing. He did not allow a baserunner to get past second base in his eight innings.
"He was locked in," Reds manager Bryan Price said per the Associated Press. "This is what we heard about when we were in the trade discussions with Miami but no one can expect anybody to come out and throw as well as he has."
DeSclafani, now 2-0 on the year, has allowed just two runs in his first three starts of the season and owns a 0.86 ERA.
He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Cubs. DeSclafani allowed two hits in his last start against Chicago.
Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani tosses seven shutout innings in win
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/14/15) Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani (1-0) held the Cubs to just two hits and no runs in seven innings on Tuesday to record the win.|
DeSclafani struck out five in the victory.
Reds manager Bryan Price was impressed with the DeSclafani's performance.
'"Very much so, because here's a rookie coming in with this team on a three-game skid where let some leads get away," Price said.
DeSclafani's next start is scheduled for Monday in Milwaukee.
|2014 Summary: Though a far less heralded prospect, Anthony DeSclafani got the call to make his major league debut for the Marlins more than a month ahead of Andrew Heaney. In his five starts and eight relief appearances, DeSclafani pitched with sharp control, just like he had in the minors, though that might not be apparent from his 6.27 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. Perhaps through little fault of his own, DeSclafani was hurt by opponents batting .306 on ground balls and baserunners getting stranded at a puny 54 percent rate. The Reds, seeing the promise behind DeSclafani's lackluster results, acquired him this offseason in the trade that sent Mat Latos to the Marlins.|
Playing time status: DeSclafani has already been awarded a rotation spot this spring, though considering what the Reds gave up for him, you had to think that was coming. Whether or not he'll stick in the role remains to be seen, but at least in NL-only leagues, his minor-league successes make him worth a flier.
2015 Outlook: DeSclafani's poor 2014 showing may have been partially the product of bad luck, but a 3.71 xFIP hints at the potential for dramatic improvement. If DeSclafani can grasp a rotation spot and hold onto it, he could become a streaming option in standard mixed leagues.
