Reds | Anthony DeSclafani stays unbeaten

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:43:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed five runs over five innings, struck out six and walked two Monday, July 25, in a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Not bad for a pitcher who missed the first two months of the year due to a strained oblique. DeSclafani is now 6-0 overall and one of the few bright spots for the Reds. Start him in DFS formats and regular leagues as well.

Reds | Rangers looking at Anthony DeSclafani

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 09:29:13 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani is among the "rotation names" being considered by the Texas Rangers as the trade deadline approaches.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani's stock has risen considerably since returning from an oblique injury that sidelined him the first two months of the campaign. He's 5-0 in eight starts with a 2.50 ERA, while registering a solid 40-to-9 K/BB ratio across 50 1/3 total innings. The right-hander would get a sizable boost if dealt to Texas, as although Arlington doesn't feature favorable conditions for pitchers, it's not that different from Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, plus he would be in a much better position for wins.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani improves to 5-0

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:28:55 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani upped his record to 5-0 after beating the Atlanta Braves in his start Wednesday, July 20. The right-hander churned out eight strong innings, yielding only two runs on eight hits, including a solo homer. He also struck out three and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani is someone whom fantasy owners should be looking at, as he's now hurled quality starts in seven of his eight assignments since making his season debut after missing the first two months with an oblique issue. He's worthy of being added in deep mixed leagues and if this keeps up, he'll be a valid option in standard formats, too.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani keeps on rolling

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 16:45:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani registered his fourth straight quality start in defeating the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field Wednesday, July 6. The youngster worked six efficient innings, yielding three runs on eight hits, including a homer. He also struck out six and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani became somewhat of a forgotten name after missing the first couple of months of the season, but he's quickly re-established himself by going 3-0 in his six starts since returning. Not only that, he's impressively allowed two runs or less, while pitching six or more innings, in five of those outings. Based on his current run right now, DeSclafani shouldn't be available in deep leagues, and is worth monitoring even in standard formats. He's far and away Cincinnati's best pitcher at the moment.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani has strong outing

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 13:35:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani gave up five singles, struck out five, and didn't allow a runner to reach second base Sunday, June 26, in a 3-0 shutout of the San Diego Padres. DeSclafani also hit an RBI single in the sixth inning off Padres SP Luis Perdomo,

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani has been strong in his return from oblique problems that cost him the first two months of the season. The Reds are still a subpar team, however, so analyze how DeSclafani does against certain squads before putting him in your DFS lineup.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani cruises to first win

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:59:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed a two-run home run to Texas Rangers INF Jurickson Profar but little else on Tuesday, June 21. DeSclafani yielded five hits and a walk while striking out six over seven innings for his first victory since Sept. 12, 2015.

Fantasy Tip: This was easily the best of DeSclafani's three starts this season since coming off the disabled list due to oblique strain. The 26-year-old New Jersey native has a tidy 2.30 ERA so far, although his 1.66 WHIP suggests he is still rounding into form. DeSclafani doesn't figure to be a must-start anytime soon, but he should be able to hold his own a back-end starter in most mixed leagues.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani has short night

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 22:48:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani gave up four runs -- one earned -- and six hits in 2 2/3 innings of work against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani was victimized by Joey Votto's error, but clearly he wasn't sharp as he needed 76 pitches to record eight outs. It was a disappointing outing after he shut down Oakland in his 2016 debut, and he'll get tested next time out when he goes against the Texas Rangers in Arlington. His appeal lies in NL-only setups for now.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani solid in 2016 debut

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:48:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed one run on eight hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Oakland Athletics Friday, June 10, with three walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani was making his first start of 2016 after being sidelined with a strained left oblique and proved that he was both healthy and effective in Friday's outing. He has a very favorable matchup for his next scheduled start versus the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, June 15, making him a recommended option for DFS contests.

Reds | Billy Hamilton placed on concussion DL

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:01:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, June 10. In a corresponding move, SP Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) was activated from the disabled list to start against the Oakland Athletics Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton's speed is worth stashing in all fantasy formats, but know, concussions can be finicky and linger. Stay tuned for updates. Take a wait-and-see approach with DeSclafani in all fantasy formats before starting him, and he likely should only be owned in deep mixed and NL-only setups.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani likely for Friday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 23:31:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) threw in the bullpen Tuesday, June 7, and he's on track to make his season debut Friday, June 10, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani's numbers last year were nothing to write home about, but he was spectacular last April. He went 2-1 with a 1.04 ERA and 21 K's in 26 innings. He didn't have an ERA under four after that. He's a depth option in NL-only leagues for now, but keep that April split in the back of your mind.
