Miami Marlins Anthony DeSclafani optioned to Triple-A after loss

Former Florida Gator Anthony DeSclafani produced one quality start and one clunker. In a move that many expected, the Miami Marlins sent the 24-year-old right-handed to Triple-A.

Anthony DeSclafani performed admirably in his brief call up to Major League Baseball.

After being asked to step into the clown-sized shoes vacated by the injured Jose Fernandez last week, DeSclafani had a memorable game picking up his first career win in his first career start at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

His next start on Tuesday night in Marlins Park against the Philadelphia Phillies did not go as well. DeSclafani got off to a rough start, giving up two runs in the first inning and needing thirty-five pitches just to make it to the second inning.  He would surrender 6 runs in 5 1/3 innings before handing it over to the bullpen.

On Wednesday, the Marlins optioned DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans and brought newly acquired veteran Randy Wolf into the rotation.  According to Joe Frisario, DeSclafani's next stint with the Marlins this season will likely come as a relief pitcher.

Wolf will likely make his first start as a Marlin this weekend against the Milwaukee Brewers.
