Anthony DeSclafani News
San Francisco Giants right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right elbow. He is expected to be shut down from throwing for six to eight weeks. DeSclafani is expected to miss the rest of the season. The 33-year-old has missed a ton of time over the last two seasons with ankle and elbow issues. DeSclafani will finish with a (4-8) record with a 4.88 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and a 79:20 K: BB across 99 2/3 innings. Unless the Giants go deep into the postseason, DeSclafani should be fully recovered ahead of Spring Training in 2024.
The San Francisco Giants have shut down starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) for "several weeks," according to MLB.com. The right-hander is dealing with a Grade 1 strain in his right forearm, which he sustained in late July. Over 19 appearances (18 starts), DeSclafani owns a 4.88 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 18.9% strikeout rate with a 4-8 record, and already missed time this season with shoulder fatigue. The 33-year-old's value was already limited, and now with this news, fantasy owners in all formats should have no problem letting him go.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (shoulder) will be activated from the injured list on Tuesday and is slated to start against his former team, the Reds, in Cincinnati. The 33-year-old hurler has been on the 15-day IL since July 3 with shoulder fatigue but all signs point to him returning to the rotation this week. DeSclafani owns a 4.28 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 69:18 K/BB ratio over 90 1/3 innings (16 starts) on the year. He should be avoided for streaming purposes for Tuesday's tilt at the launching pad that is GABP in Cincinnati.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani experienced the Giants' revitalization magic in 2021, posting a career season. The 31-year-old went 13-7 with a 3.17 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 22.5% strikeout rate over 167 innings pitched. He was rewarded with a three-year, $36 million contract. The biggest change for DeSclafani was the use of his slider. He relied primarily on his slider at 35.7% usage, which was his best strikeout pitch with a 15.6% swinging-strike rate. His pitch mix seemed to keep hitters off-balance, as he also saw better results from his four-seam fastball (27.1% usage, .250 batting average) and sinker (18.6% usage, .187 batting average). His batted-ball profile was league average, and his 4.11 SIERA reflected that. However, his home park should allow him to continue to outperform his underlying numbers to a degree. DeSclafani is currently being drafted at about pick 215, making him the 82nd pitcher off the board. This seems like a generally reasonable range, depending on the needs of fantasy managers at the later stages of drafts. However, he would end up being a great value at that ADP if he can come close to replicating his 2021 season.
