There's been significant buzz in recent weeks about San Francisco Giants starter Anthony DeSclafani finally returning to the rotation. The 32-year-old hasn't made a start since April 21 due to right ankle inflammation, but a pair of rehab appearances mean he's on the verge of rejoining the big league club.
Sunday morning brought another encouraging sign for DeSclafani's potential return this week.
Evan Webeck of The Mercury News noted that DeSclafani rejoined the team ahead of their final game of the series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The fact the veteran made the trip and will be there to travel with the Giants for a four-game tilt starting Monday against the Atlanta Braves is extremely encouraging news.
The rumblings have been that DeSclafani could start on Tuesday in Atlanta, and this news seems to reinforce the belief he'll make his return in the coming days.
The 32-year-old was off to a rocky start to begin this season, giving up 9 earned runs and 22 hits in just 13.1 innings. However, he was coming off a career year in 2021, and San Francisco getting that player back (13-7, 3.17 ERA) would be a major boost with several other starters injured.
If DeSclafani returns on Tuesday, it'll be two months exactly since his last start.
