Hartsock: DeSclafani sharp in rehab start


It’s a long way from low-A to the Major Leagues, but Anthony DeSclafani took a step toward rejoining the Reds rotation with a rehab start for the Dayton Dragons on Saturday night.

DeSclafani gave up one hit and struck out six batters in four innings of work against on the road at Fort Wayne TinCaps. The right-hander threw 46 pitches, 33 of them for strikes, and faced 14 hitters.

DeSclafani suffered an elbow injury in spring training. Saturday’s game was his second rehab start. He will likely be back on the mound for the Dragons when they return to Fifth Third Field next week.

Hemade a rehab start in Dayton in 2016, battling back from an oblique injury. He suffered a setback in that game, but still managed 20 starts last season, posting a 9-5 record.

He owns a 20-20 record in three big league seasons, the first with the Miami Marlins before coming to the Reds in a 2014 trade. Cincinnati gave up pitchers Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon in return.
