by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday, according to MLB.com. He has been sidelined since June 14.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias, Tony Cingrani begin throwing programs


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Reds starter Raisel Iglesias and reliever Tony Cingrani, both on the disabled list, have begun their throwing programs, according to MLB.com

Iglesias is recovering from a strained left oblique and Cingrani is coming back from a left shoulder injury. Manager Bryan Price believes they'll be back before the All-Star break, barring any setbacks. 

Both pitchers will go on rehab assignments before returning to the team. 


Reds place RP Tony Cingrani on DL, promote RP Pedro Villarreal


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) The Reds have announced that they have placed left-hander Tony Cingrani on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain. The move is retroactive to Sunday.

"I do imagine it's going to take some time to get the inflammation out, get the strength back up in the shoulder and then reinitiate throwing," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "He's got 15 days, and we'll see where he is at that point."

His roster spot has been asssumed by righty reliever Pedro Villarreal.

Cingrani has struggled lately with three runs allowed on seven hits in his last three innings pitched. He is 0-3 with a respectable 3.47 ERA on the year.


Reds' Tony Cingrani blows first save opportunity of year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani suffered a blown save in Thursday's game against San Francisco. 

Cingrani entered the game to start the eighth inning, protecting a one-run lead in his first save opportunity of the season. He allowed a walk, triple and single to the only three batters he faced. The only out he recorded was on a pick-off. 

Cingrani saw his ERA increase to 2.70.


Reds' Price: Tony Cingrani not an option to start this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price told reporters that pitcher Tony Cingrani is not an option to start this week, per MLB.com.

Michael Lorenzen will be promoted from Triple-A Louisville to start Wednesday, while Mike Leake will start Thursday. Price added that in order for Cingrani to join the rotation, he'll have to stretch out in the minors.

"It would almost seem like it would require us sending him to the minor leagues to get stretched out," Price said. "I made the decision -- I was involved, a big supporter of putting him in the bullpen -- not because that's what we needed for this club at the time. What I felt was it was where he was best suited coming off a year of a lot of injury and shoulder concerns and the limited development of his off-speed pitches. It just seemed like for him to be able to come in there and maybe cut his mix of pitches to two and come in and be that … it just seemed to fit his nature -- very, very aggressive, doesn't really back off and feel his way through six to nine innings.

"He goes as hard as he can, as long as he can. I think his temperament is suited better – at this point in time – as a relief pitcher. Some day he may prove me wrong and be a great starting pitcher. I wouldn't say that's an impossible thing to have happen."


Reds' Tony Cingrani does well in return to the mound Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani tossed two scoreless innings in Cincinnati's 5-2 loss to the Cubs Sunday. It was Cingrani's first appearance for the Reds since April 14. 

"I've just been hanging out for a little while," said Cingrani to MLB.com. "Everything feels good. I was obviously refreshed. I like one inning, two innings. I'm good at that. It's pretty easy. Just go out there and throw as hard as you can."

Cingrani recorded two strikeouts in his two innings of work and lowered his ERA to 1.69 in 5 1/3 innings.

"Tony left it right there and I think gave us a vision of some of the things he can do to help us out of the bullpen," manager Bryan Price said. "I needed him for two innings today. We'll see where he is [Monday]. You're certainly going to run with the guys throwing the ball the best."


Reds manager Price: Tony Cingrani not dealing with any injuries


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price told reporters that pitcher Tony Cingrani is not dealing with an injury, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Although Cingrani has not been used out of the bullpen since April 14, Price added that the 23-year-old southpaw warmed up during Wednesday's contest against the Brewers in Milwaukee.

In three relief outings, Cingrani has allowed only one earned run over 3 1/3 innings.


Reds' Price might take Kevin Gregg out of eighth-inning role


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) 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.


Reds finalize bullpen for start of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) With the surprising demotion of reliever Sam LeCure to the minors Thursday, the Reds' Opening Day bullpen is set.

It will feature closer Aroldis Chapman, Burke Badenhop, Kevin Gregg, Jumbo Diaz, Tony Cingrani, Manny Parra and J.J. Hoover, per MLB.com.

Gregg was the only non-roster invitee among the group.


Reds move Tony Cingrani to the 'pen, will stretch out Raisel Iglesias


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price told reporters that Tony Cingrani will start the season in the bullpen, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Cingrani was scheduled to start a spring game on Monday, but was scratched in favor of Raisel Iglesias. The Reds will stretch Iglesias out to become a starter, per the Enquirer. Price indicated that Iglesias could take Homer Bailey's starts until he returns from injury, then return to the bullpen or the minors.


Six pitchers vying for last two spots in Reds' rotation


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) 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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) 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.

Cingrani gave up 22 earned runs in 42 1/3 innings in his last eight starts. He walked four in 3 2/3 innings in relief as he continued to struggle with his control. He has walked 35 in 63 1/3 innings on the year.


Tony Cingrani takes loss out of the bullpen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani came unraveled in a relief appearance Thursday, in a 4-3 extra-innings loss to the Pirates.

Cingrani pitched the 11th and 12th innings of a tied game, and struggled with his control from the start. He got out of the 11th despite allowing a leadoff double followed by a walk, but emerged from the inning unscathed.

Cingrani wasn't so luck in the 12th, as he completely lost control to lose the game. He loaded the bases on a single, a walk and a hit-by-pitch, and then walked in the winning run in the form of Russell Martin to lose the game.

Cingrani had his issues with control in the rotation, and it looks like he hasn't figured them out yet in a more limited role. His ERA rose to 4.55 in the game, and he lost his sixth decision in a row to fall to 2-8.

"If we're 18 games out of first place right now, maybe it's a different decision right now to have him pitch in Triple-A as a starter and put some polish to his game. But, we still feel like we're very much in this thing and still have a lot of season to go. He does serve a valuable role for us."
