Reds' DeSclafani has another strained oblique, Finnegan leaves with injury
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Anthony DeSclafani has a strained left oblique, the third year in a row that the Cincinnati Reds starter has been hurt during spring training.
Manager Bryan Price said DeScalfani felt discomfort during his last spring appearance and an exam found the problem. It's unclear how long the right-hander might be sidelined. The Reds open the season in a little over two weeks.
DeSclafani also suffered a strained left oblique before the 2016 season and was sidelined until June. He missed all of last season with a sprained elbow.
Left-hander Brandon Finnegan faced only two batters in his appearance on Sunday because of a sore forearm.
