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

|(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.
Reds' Price: Tony Cingrani (shoulder) 'looks fine' in camp
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Reds manager Bryan Price said Thursday that there have been no problems with the arm of pitcher Tony Cingrani after he dealt with shoulder issues for much of last season, MLB.com reports.
"Sometimes it's hard to tell with your guys. Some guys are blow and go in their bullpen [sessions]. He looks fine to me," Price said. "It's an important camp for him to get extended and just make sure everything is OK physically with the shoulder. We haven't had any great concerns."
After seeing his last action of the season in mid-June, Cingrani spent the offseason rehabbing and has refined his mechanics to put less of a load on his shoulder.
"I learned to have a better routine in the offseason to make sure I am strong," Cingrani said. "It's impossible to throw without shoulder complications. I think every pitcher in here has problems. It's just making sure everything is strong enough to maintain it."
Cingrani went 2-8 with a 4.55 ERA and 61:35 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings last season.
Reds' Tony Cingrani throwing with no issues
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani is throwing without any issues, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Cingrani was limited to 63 1/3 innings last season due to shoulder issues. He was able to get through a throwing session on Thursday, and reported no issues. Cingrani was able to throw both fastballs and breaking pitches during the session. Manager Bryan Price said Cingrani felt "awesome" after throwing.
The 25-year-old Cingrani posted a 4.55 ERA in the majors last season. He's expected to compete for a spot in the team's rotation during camp.
|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.
