Giants Starter Rejoining Rotation Tuesday


Starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani will rejoin the Giants' rotation on Tuesday versus the Braves.

DeSclafani has missed 53 games since hitting the injured list late April with right ankle inflammation. In three starts this season, he holds an ugly 6.08 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, with 13 strikeouts in 13 innings.

The veteran pitcher made two rehab starts with Triple-A Sacramento and allowed three earned runs in 5.2 innings. His last start in Triple-A was only 2.2 innings, so there is a good chance DeSclafani is on a pitch count for Tuesday evening. 

The stats this year from DeSclafani are not too attractive, which has fans hesitant to see him rejoin the rotation. However, the thirty-two year old was fantastic in his first year as a Giant last season, posting a 13-7 record with a 3.17 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and throwing two shutout games. 

With the addition of DeSclafani, the Giants now have all five of their top starters back in their rotation.
