RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

DeSclafani's 2016 season was delayed by an oblique injury suffered at the end of spring training, and then by attempting to return too quickly. He still ultimately made 20 starts, improving marginally in most metrics except for his home run rate. Unfortunately, there's one big hurdle preventing DeSclafani from reaching his potential as a No. 2 starter -- his inability to retire left-handers with consistency. Despite using his curveball instead of his changeup to attack lefties, the results have been disappointing, as they hit .300/.337/.500 collectively against him, good for a .353 wOBA. If he ever finds a good out-pitch against lefties, look out -- right-handers hit just .199/.274/.311 against him.

2016

For everything that went wrong for the Reds in 2015, getting DeSclafani for Mat Latos turned out to be a big win for them, and not just because Latos cratered with the Marlins. DeSclafani's last three starts were awful and his ERA topped 4.00 following his final start, but he struck out nearly 20 percent of the batters he faced while walking just seven percent. The best part of his repertoire is his slider, which is one of the best in the game, and his curveball has improved. He still needs to improve against left-handers, who had a .338 wOBA against him. Refining his changeup, which is his worst pitch right now, would go a long way towards providing a remedy.

2015

DeSclafani was given his first taste of major league action in 2014, first as a starter in May and later as a bullpen arm in August/September. All told, he registered a 6.27 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 26 strikeouts in 33 innings pitched. A converted reliever since his college days, DeSclafani has successfully transitioned into a starting role over the past several seasons, compiling a 3.23 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 354.1 innings pitched across three levels. In the majors, following his early struggles, DeSclafani appeared to find a comfort zone in the bullpen, reeling off seven scoreless appearances in eight trips to the mound to close the season. Working with a five-pitch arsenal that includes a pair of fastballs, a slider, a curveball and a changeup, DeSclafani has shown solid strikeout ability and good control with a 3.93 K/BB over his professional career. The Reds acquired DeSclafani from Miami as part of the Mat Latos deal in December, and it's likely that the Reds will use him as part of a rebuilt rotation to begin 2015.

2014

Initially drafted as a reliever, DeSclafani has successfully transitioned to a starting role over the past couple of seasons in the minors. In 25 starts split between the Marlins' High-A and Double-A affiliates, he piled up a 9-6 record with a 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP over 129 innings pitched. He's shown solid strikeout ability (8.0 K/9 last season) and has also put together a nice 1.7 BB/9 in the minors. DeSclafani may soon find himself somewhat blocked in what has become a very pitching-rich organization over the past several years, but if he continues to perform on the farm, the organization will find a way to let the 23-year-old contribute.
