December 16Adam SardinhaSportsGrid
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Susan Slusser reported free-agent pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal with the San Francisco Giants.
DeSclafani started seven games for the Reds last season, pitching 33 innings, posting a 1-2 record, 7.22 ERA and a 15.8% K Rate. Batters had a .295 batting average against DeSclafani last season, the worst of his career.
The right-hander should slot into the rotation after Kevin Gausman, Logan Webb and Johnny Cueto. Last season, the Giants rotation had the tenth worst ERA at 4.99 and a 22.6% K rate, with batters averaging .243 against them. DeSclafani does benefit in moving to a traditionally pitcher-friendly ballpark in Oracle Park and away from the hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark.
Fanduel Sportsbook currently list the Giants as +8000 to win the 2021 World Series and +5500 to win the National League pennant.
