SP - SF
RHP Anthony DeSclafani took a no-decision on Wednesday when he surrendered three runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts over four innings in the Giants' 6-5 loss to the Phillies.
DeSclafani served up a three-run homer to Mickey Moniak in the bottom of the second inning before Brandon Belt hit for him in the top of the fifth inning. The right-hander only threw 68 pitches so he was the victim of bad luck and the circumstances of the game on Wednesday. He's registered an impressive 2.14 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 21:6 K/BB ratio over 21 innings (four starts) this year and gets the Rockies at home in his next turn. He should garner some DFS and streaming attention for that one.
RHP Anthony DeSclafani earned a quality start and a no-decision on Friday when he surrendered one run on four hits with four strikeouts and no walks over six innings in the Giants 4-1 loss to the Marlins in Miami.
DeSclafani looked sharp on Friday, keeping the Fish off balance with his fastball and slider combination. His counterpart on the other side, Dan Castano, also did an excellent job, which prevented DeSclafini from factoring into the decision for the second time this season. The 30-year-old right-hander is quietly having an excellent season, registering a 1.06 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 16:4 K/BB ratio over 17 innings (three starts). He gets the Phillies in his next start and if he performs well there then you can expect his stock to skyrocket as he's just rostered in 35% of Yahoo! leagues currently.
RHP Anthony DeSclafini earned his first win of the year on Sunday when he limited the Rockies to six hits and no runs with eight strikeouts and one walk over six innings in a 4-0 win.
DeSclafani looked sharp on Sunday, scattering six hits and whiffing eight. He only issued one free pass and fired 64 of his 94 pitches for strikes to pick up his first quality start and win of the season. He'll take his 0.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 12:4 K/BB ratio into a road start against Miami in his next turn. He's most definitely in the streamer conversation in that one.
Anthony DeSclafani took a no-decision on Monday when he allowed just one run on four hits with three walks and four strikeouts over five innings in the Giants 3-2 win over the Padres.
DeSclafani was making his Giants' debut and he did enough to give San Francisco a chance to beat the Friars. It was an inefficient start as he needed 86 pitches, only 47 strikes, just to get through five frames but he held the high-powered San Diego offense to just one run. He punched out four but did issue three walks. The 30-year-old righty doesn't have a very high ceiling but he should be a decent back-end starter for the Giants this season. He gets the Rockies at home in his next turn.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Giants are signing free agent RHP Anthony DeSclafani to a one-year contract in the $6 million range.
The right-hander struggled in nine appearances (seven starts) for the Reds this past season, allowing 27 earned runs in 33 2/3 innings (7.22 ERA). However, the Giants have been known to be seeking rotation help, and DeSclafani was serviceable as recently as 2019. He likely won't begin the year with much fantasy value, but perhaps he could be streamer-worthy at some point.
