  • Anthony DeSclafani Delayed In Camp

    Headshot for Anthony DeSclafani

    Minnesota Twins pitchers Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) and Caleb Thielbar (hamstring) have been delayed in camp but are ramping up their throwing. Trainer Nick Paparesta said that both pitchers still have time to be ready for Opening Day. DeSclafani is dealing with right-elbow soreness, while Thielbar is dealing with a left-hamstring strain. DeSclafani, 33, was acquired in an offseason trade with the Mariners. It's a troubling sign he's hurt again after missing most of last year due to a flexor issue in his arm. In his 19 outings (18 starts) for the Giants in 2023, DeSclafani went 4-8 with a 4.88 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with 79 strikeouts in 99 2/3 innings. His injury in camp could make Louie Varland the favorite for Minnesota's final rotation spot to open the year.

  • Josh Staumont, Anthony DeSclafani Full-Go In Spring Training

    Headshot for Anthony DeSclafani

    New Minnesota Twins pitchers Josh Staumont (shoulder) and Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) have both been throwing for months after ending last year on the injured list and are full-go entering spring training. Staumont had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last July but should be good to go for Opening Day with his new club. The 30-year-old could struggle to be effective after the surgery, though, especially since he hasn't very good to begin with the last two years for the Kansas City Royals (6.09 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 57 2/3 innings). DeSclafani made just 18 starts with the San Francisco Giants in 2023 due to a right flexor strain. The 33-year-old went 4-8 with a 4.88 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with 79 K's in 99 2/3 innings last year. DeSclafani will be competing for the fifth spot in Minnesota's starting rotation in camp.

  • Anthony DeSclafani, Justin Topa Traded To Twins

    The Minnesota Twins acquired right-handers Anthony DeSclafani and Justin Topa, along with prospects Gabriel Gonzalez and right-hander Darren Bowen, in a four-player package from the Seattle Mariners on Monday in exchange for second baseman Jorge Polanco, according to sources. Cash is also believed to be involved in the deal. DeSclafani and outfielder Mitch Haniger were acquired by the M's from the Giants for lefty Robbie Ray earlier this offseason. The 33-year-old made only 19 starts in 2023 and may not be ready for the start of the 2024 season due to a right flexor strain. He'll provide depth for the Twins' rotation when he's ready. Topa, 32, had a 2.61 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 61 K's in 69 innings over a career-high 75 appearances for Seattle in 2023. He should be tasked with a high-leverage role in the back of Minnesota's bullpen. Gonzalez, 20, made it to Single-A Modesto in 2023 and has some real promise at the plate as an outfielder. Bowen, 22, had a 3.88 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 59 K's in 55 2/3 innings at Modesto in his first minor-league season.

  • Anthony DeSclafani Headed To Mariners In Blockbuster Deal

    Headshot for Anthony DeSclafani

    Right-hander Anthony DeSclafani is headed to the Seattle Mariners in a blockbuster trade that will see former Cy Young winner Robbie Ray heading to the San Francisco Giants while outfielder Mitch Haniger joins DeSclafani in heading to Seattle, joining his former club in the process. DeSclafani has spent the past three seasons in the Bay Area but injuries limited him to just 24 starts over the last two seasons after he posted a 3.17 ERA across 31 starts in his debut season with the Giants. The righty posted a 4.88 ERA in 19 starts in the 2023 season but an elbow injury cut his season short. In parts of nine big-league seasons, the 33-year-old owns a solid 4.20 ERA between the Marlins, Reds, and Giants.

  • Mitch Haniger Returns To Mariners In Trade With Giants

    Headshot for Anthony DeSclafani

    Outfielder Mitch Haniger is headed back to the Seattle Mariners in a trade with the San Francisco Giants that sends former Cy Young winner Robbie Ray to San Francisco while right-hander Anthony DeSclafani joins Haniger in heading to the Mariners. The veteran spent five seasons in Seattle before joining the Giants in free agency prior to the 2023 season. He once again had trouble staying on the field in his lone season in the Bay Area as he hit just .209 with six home runs across just 229 trips to the plate. A myriad of ailments have plagued the 33-year-old in his career as he's played in more than 96 games just twice in seven seasons. He will presumably take the spot of free agent outfielder Teoscar Hernandez in Seattle while the club also traded outfielder Jarred Kelenic to the Braves this winter.

  • Mariners Ship Robbie Ray To Giants In Friday Blockbuster

    Headshot for Anthony DeSclafani

    The Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants connected for a blockbuster trade on Friday as Seattle will send former Cy Young winner Robbie Ray to the Giants in exchange for former Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger and right-hander Anthony DeSclafani. Ray, the 2021 AL Cy Young winner with the Toronto Blue Jays, went on to sign a five-year, $115 million deal with the Mariners in free agency prior to the 2022 season. While he regressed some, Ray still posted a 3.71 ERA and excellent 19.4% K-BB% across 32 starts that season. However, he was limited to just a single start in 2023 due to an elbow injury. Subsequent Tommy John surgery will sideline him until after the All-Star break. A big-time strikeout pitcher, the 32-year-old has reined in the free passes that plagued him earlier in his career as he looks to bounce back with the Giants in the 2024 campaign.
