It’s now been decided he needs surgery to “fix the peroneal tendon in his right ankle,” according to MLB.com’s Maria Guardado (Via Twitter). The recovery time is expected to be four to five months. With the surgery scheduled for July 12, he won’t be back on the hill this season.
DeSclafani seemed to find himself last season in a decade that proved it. He made 31 starts for the Giants, scored 167 2/3 innings, and came down to a 3.17 ERA/3.62 FIP with the best strike and walk rates.
The 32-year-old is in the first year of a three-year, $36 million deal he signed last winter. Both sides are definitely hoping for more than five starts and currently own a 9.95 ERA DeSclafani. Of course, these five starts (19 rounds) don’t mean much in the grand scheme of things. However, the 4.86 FIP certainly provides a touch of promise for the team and player to dream about as they look to 2023.
The Giants survived without Disclavani thanks to a powerful front four Logan WebAnd the Carlos RodonAnd the Alex WoodAnd the Alex Cobb. Jacob Jones And the Sammy Long DeSclafani’s base reserves have been so far, with seven and five starts, respectively. Both performed well. However, as the year goes on, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Giants explore adding reinforcements from outside the organization.
