Anthony DeSclafani News
The San Francisco Giants transferred starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (ankle) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list on Monday. DeSclafani has been out since late April due to right ankle inflammation. Despite the fact that he's been throwing for almost two weeks, he now won't be able to return to the Giants starting rotation until late June. The Giants clearly don't want to rush the 32-year-old right-hander back too soon. DeSclafani had a career year in 2021 in his first season in San Francisco, posting a career-best 3.17 ERA and 1.09 WHIP while walking 42 and striking out 152 in his 31 starts covering 167 2/3 innings. He hasn't been nearly as good in his three starts before his injury this year, surrendering nine earned runs while walking two and striking out 13 in 13 1/3 innings, but his 3.78 FIP points to some early bad luck.
San Francisco Giants right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (ankle) will throw a bullpen session on Monday ahead of his team's game against the Colorado Rockies. DeSclafani has not pitched in a game since April 21 as he has been dealing with inflammation in his right ankle. The veteran right-hander is still without a timeline for a return to the mound but his ability to throw on Monday is a positive development. DeSclafani has a 0-1 record, 6.08 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, and 13 strikeouts over 13 1/3 innings of work.
On Monday, we received a few updates on the status of San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (ankle) courtesy of Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. Slusser reported that DeSclafani visited an ankle specialist on Monday and that he had an MRI that revealed right ankle inflammation. The plan is for DeSclafani to resume throwing in a week and Slusser estimates that he will be sidelined for a few weeks in total. The Giants will have some holes in their starting rotation over the next few weeks as Alex Cobb (groin) is on the injured list as well. Sammy Long received a spot start on Monday and the team has yet to announce a starter for Wednesday's game.
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.
