Anthony DeSclafani Working To Comeback Soon

Anthony DeSclafani wanted a break from his throwing program in Goodyear, Arizona.  He used an MRI this morning to allow him to hang out with the guys and watch a few games.

His throwing program is progressing, slowly, but progressing non the less.

“I’m feeling good,” DeSclafani said. “I’m making progress for sure. I’ve still got a few more weeks but my arm is feeling better. I’m definitely headed in the right direction.”

For the second year in a row, the 26-year old, started the season on the disabled list. Last season it was a strained left oblique.

“I didn’t know what an oblique was,” DeSclafani said.

This year his elbow was barking. It required rest rather than surgery.

DeSclafani wanted to spend a few days with his teammates before continuing his work to get back healthy and pitch ‘for a long time.”

“I came here to get another MRI, get out of Arizona for a little bit and be around the guys, watch a few games before I go back,” DeSclafani said.. “It is tough being away from baseball and not being able to compete. Now I feel like we have a pretty solid team here. I know we’re only a month into it but I feel we’ve played some really good baseball. The bullpen’s been great. The starting pitching has had some good times and bad but we’re only a game back and I want to be a part of it.”
