From -- thru  --


Reds | Brandon Finnegan, Josh Smith set to start

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:43:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SPs Brandon Finnegan and Josh Smith are set to start this weekend, with Finnegan going Friday, Sept. 18, and Smith pitching Saturday, Sept. 19. SPs Anthony DeSclafani and John Lamb will follow.

Fantasy Tip: Both Finnegan and Smith will be priced cheaply on FantasyScore against the Milwaukee Brewers. We don't recommend using either youngster in your daily lineups, though.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani solid in victory

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 21:46:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed just one earned run, seven hits and no walks with six strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings in a win Monday, Sept. 7, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) snapped a five-start winless drought dating back to Aug. 4. However, he hasn't pieced together quality starts in since a five-start span from July 24 to Aug. 16. If he pitches well next time out he can be trusted again in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) had his sixth quality start in his last seven outings but received no run support Thursday afternoon. He will make his next start Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani picks up win

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:53:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed two earned runs, seven hits and no walks with season-best nine strikeouts over six innings in a win against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has won back-to-back starts, both against the contending Cards, and he has lasted six or more starts in three in a row. He is a solid mid-level FantasyScore option, especially on the road where he is 4-2 with a 2.41 ERA in 11 outings while the opponent is hitting just .202.

Reds | Cincy youngsters to be limited

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:31:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said all of the team's young pitchers, including SPs Anthony DeSclafani, Michael Lorenzen, Raisel Iglesias, David Holmberg, Keyvius Sampson, Robert Stephenson, Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb will have their innings monitored as the season wears on. "The biggest challenge is for a lot of guys who will be considered for call-ups for September or even earlier. We'll have guys who don't have that first major-league season where they pitched in September and had a chance to take their workload from 145 innings or 150 to 175 or 185. We'll have a lot of guys who we'll have to be cautious with their innings."

Fantasy Tip: That's not what owners of any of these pitchers want to hear, but it's a reality that often affects all young pitchers and their fantasy owners as the season winds down. On FantasyScore, none of the Reds young pitchers is ever a slam dunk, and their daily value will likely only continue to plummet if they are kept on pitch counts or innings limits.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani tosses up donut

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:52:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed just three hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings in a win Wednesday, July 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was surprisingly effective for FantasyScore players, but looking at his splits he is usually better on the road than at Great American Ball Park. He is 4-2 with a 2.41 ERA in 11 road outings, while he is 2-5 with a 5.69 ERA in nine home starts.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani to return after break

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:21:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani (gluteus) is expected to miss only one turn through the rotation, and he will rejoin the rotation after the All-Star break, according to manager Bryan Price.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) should be held onto in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Raisel Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will come off the DL and start Saturday against the Miami Marlins. Iglesias, who had a 5.11 ERA but a 9.1 K/9 in four starts earlier this year, is a risk/reward option on FantasyScore tomorrow as your second pitcher against the offensively challenged Fish without Giancarlo Stanton.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias starting Saturday

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:38:37 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias (oblique) is starting against the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 11, instead of SP Anthony DeSclafani (gluteus). DeSclafani pitched through a glute strain during his last start.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) could be a sneaky No. 2 pitcher for FantasyScore players Saturday. The Miami lineup is much easier to navigate without slugger Giancarlo Stanton (hand), and Igelsias has a 2.91 FIP with a 9.12 K/9 through four starts and six appearances this season.

Reds | CIN adjusts rotation

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 17:38:26 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds have adjusted their starting rotation following the rainout Thursday, June 18, against the Detroit Tigers. SP Mike Leake will pitch Friday, against the Miami Marlins, SP Anthony DeSclafani will go Saturday, against the Marlins and SP Michael Lorenzen will pitch the series finale Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: All three Reds' starters carry sizable risk on FantasyScore, with that risk being elevated at the hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. With the Marlins in town, however, any of the three could be considered in GPP tournaments.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 17:02:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Sunday, June 14. C David Ross will start and is hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is known more for his defensive skills, and with a .157 average for the year, he can be ignored at FantasyScore.
