Anthony DeSclafani is a 2008 RHP with a 6'3'', 175 lb. frame from Freehold, NJ who attends Colts Neck HS. He has a slender, young build and hasn't started to get strong yet. DeSclafani has a low effort delivery and very long and loose whippy arm action and an extended mid 3/4's release point. He threw a 4 seam fastball that topped out at 92 mph and a 2-seamer that had nice sink and run at 87 mph and was able to throw both pitches to spots low in the zone. With his loose and easy arm, DeSclafani projects more velocity in the future. His slider and change up are still in the developing stages. Like many pitchers with similar arm actions/release points, getting a feel for a breaking ball is difficult and DeSclafani's slider is soft with an early break. With his easy delivery, long arm action and lack of off speed pitches, he lacks deception right now.
