The adage that bad news comes in threes has a new application in the age of Twitter. Witness three Reds beat writers dutifully tweeting out this bad, terrible, awful news:
Anthony DeSclafani's elbow soreness came back. Will not start tomorrow. May start on DL, more tests being done

DeSclafani has return of elbow tenderness after last side bullpen. Scratched from Mon start. To get MRI. Likely start season on DL #reds

I’ll add a contribution of my own from that website.
Out of grave concern for first 6 innings, Reds could move Michael Lorenzen – their best pitcher last year – back to the starting rotation.
