Reds' Price might take Kevin Gregg out of eighth-inning role
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) After a rough outing for Reds pitcher Kevin Gregg on Monday, manager Bryan Price was asked if Gregg would be the guy in the eighth inning going forward.
“He may be. He may not be,” Price replied. “It just depends on who I have healthy and who is down there. He’s a guy who is experienced as a closer, a setup man and a starter. He’s a guy who has been a lot tighter situations than that over the course of his career. As I’ve told you, the bullpen will be ever evolving. These guys will cut out their roles based on how they perform,” per mlblogs.com.
Price acknowldeged that some adjustments will have to be made in the bullpen.
“Once the eighth inning becomes a situational inning, it becomes a challenge,” Price said. “We went into that game anticipating him pitching the eighth inning. It didn’t go as well as we had anticipated. The eighth inning isn’t really a matchup inning. We really had hoped that it would be a clean inning and it wasn’t, so I had to make some adjustments there.”
Price added that pitchers Jumbo Diaz and Tony Cingrani could be in the late-inning mix.
Six pitchers vying for last two spots in Reds' rotation
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Six pitchers are competing for the fourth and fifth spots in the Reds rotation, and a week into spring training games, the races are still too close to call.
The half dozen pitchers have combined to give up one earned run so far this spring.
Lefthander Tony Cingrani hit 94 MPH with his fastball, showing that last season's shoulder trouble is behind him.
Righthander Anthony DeSclafani gave up an unearned run in his first start. "I felt like everything was working," he said.
Manager Bryan Price declared Cingrani and DeScalfani the early favorites.RHP Jason Marquis has thrown five hitless innings to work his way into the mix. RHP Raisel Iglesias and LHPs David Holmberg and Paul Maholm have also been effective.
"At this point in time, we've got a great list," Price said to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It would be a very difficult challenge to feel like we've got it right if we had to make our team today because so many of these guys are performing at such a high level."
Reds' Tony Cingrani goes two scoreless innings in debut
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/6/15) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani tossed two scoreless innings in his spring debut on Friday.
Cingrani allowed two hits in two innings of work. He walked one and struck out two during the outing. After an injury-riddled 2014, Cingrani has received a clean bill of health, and is competing for a spot in the team's rotation.
The 25-year-old posted a 4.55 ERA over 63 1/3 innings last season.
|2014 summary: A promising 2013 season was long forgotten just a few weeks into Tony Cingrani's dismal 2014 effort. He began the year in the Reds' rotation, but he struggled through most of his first six starts and then found himself on the DL with shoulder tendinitis. Upon his return, Cingrani was even worse, as he allowed 14 walks and nine home runs over five starts before getting demoted to the bullpen. His stay there was brief, as the Reds demoted him to Triple-A Louisville. Cingrani did not make another appearance in either the majors or minors; he missed the remainder of the season with a shoulder strain.|
Playing time status: Cingrani was considered a favorite for a rotation spot heading into this spring, but the Reds announced midway through that he'll begin the year in the bullpen. Last year's injury had a little something to do with it, but Cingrani's inability to develop a third pitch was probably a contributing factor as well. The Reds haven't ruled out moving him back to the rotation at some point.
2015 outlook: As a starter, Cingrani would have been an exciting sleeper in Fantasy considering he had a 2.92 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings in 23 appearances, including 18 starts, jut two years ago, but as a middle reliever, he's just a low-end NL-only option.
