Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani trying to work out the kinks


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has fallen off from his strong start. DeSclafani is 0-4 with a 6.38 ERA in his last five starts of the season. He has also walked 17 batters in his last 24 innings, something he knows  will have to be fixed quickly, according to MLB.com.

"It's not going my way now, but I've got to keep working at it and trying to make adjustments and try to catch a rhythm in the next few starts," DeSclafani said.

Manager Bryan Price thinks getting him and the rest of the pitching staff some rest will help.

"We ran guys out there on fumes. That's the importance of good starting pitching, the guys that typically come in behind you are fresh and rested," Price said. "Our good fortune is we haven't seen a lot of that out of the rotation three games in a row -- five innings or less. ... I hope not to see it again or else we'll have a bullpen that's on fumes. I anticipate a lot better pitching from the rotation."


Reds' Anthony DeSclafani allows six runs in loss Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani took the loss on Sunday, giving up six earned runs on six hits and three walks in just three innings while striking out two in his team's 9-8 defeat against the Giants.

DeSclafani (2-4) was hammered for four runs in the second inning before surrendering a two-run home run in the third. He was then lifted for a pinch-hitter in the bottom half of the third, ensuring he wouldn't get the chance to pick up what would have been his first win since April 20.

DeSclafani jumped out to a hot start after three outings but now owns a 3.80 ERA and 34:21 K:BB ratio in 45 innings. He's scheduled to face the Indians in Cleveland Saturday.

Reds' Anthony DeSclafani walks four batters during Thursday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani had command issues during Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Pirates. DeSclafani walked four batters over five innings and he gave up three runs on seven hits.

"I got myself in a lot of jams. I definitely wasn't happy with this outing," DeSclafani said, per MLB.com. "I kind of felt like I was fighting myself mechanically and I wasn't getting ahead of hitters at all."

He also struck out one batter. His ERA rose from 2.03 to 2.50 after the outing and he recieved the loss. DeSclafani (2-3) has now failed to pitch past the fifth inning in each of his last three starts. He has walked nine batters over his last 10 innings.

"These walks are something that I'm not used to," DeSclafani said. "I don't like walking a lot of people. I like attacking hitters. I'm kind of just fighting myself these past few starts. I've got to make an adjustment and figure out something quick. I hate losing. I hate competing like this."

His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Braves.

DeSclafani's biggest mistake was a two-run home run he surrendered to Kelly Johnson in the fifth inning.

His next expected start is scheduled for Thursday at Pittsburgh.


Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani: 'I love it here in Cincinnati'


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/1/2015) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani, who was acquired from the Marlins this past offseason, has pitched well with his new team in 2015. After struggling in his first big-league season in 2014, "Disco", as his teammates call him, has adjusted nicely to life in Cincinnati. 

"I love it here in Cincinnati," DeSclafani said, per MLB.com. "Everyone's been really good to me, the coaching staff has been awesome, the vibe around the clubhouse is great and I couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity here. And it's a dream come true to be part of a starting rotation.

"I think it'll be good. I know what I'm capable of doing, just from the past couple years. I know when everything's feeling right. I try to keep a positive attitude and just do what I know I can do best. I think it'll all work out."

Desclafani has made four starts and is 2-1 with a 1.04 ERA for the Reds. He has recorded 21 strikeouts over 26 innings pitched. He had just 26 punchouts in 33 innings for the Marlins last year.

He's slated to face the Braves in Atlanta Friday.


Cubs-Reds game officially postponed due to rain


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Confidence a driving force behind Anthony DeSclafani's fast start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) 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
(4/20/2015) 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.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
