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."


Reds' Tony Cingrani goes two scoreless innings in debut


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) 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
(3/5/2015) 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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.


Price: Cingrani, DeSclafani still favorites for final two rotation spots


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price said Wednesday starting pitcher Tony Cingrani, who missed the final few months of the 2014 season due to a shoulder strain, is ready to go for spring training, per MLB.com.

Price added that Cingrani and Anthony DeSclafani continue to have the inside track for the final two spots in the Reds' rotation.


Tony Cingrani considered a favorite for spot in Reds' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price said Thursday starting pitcher Tony Cingrani is one of the early favorites to win one of the final two spots in the team's rotation, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"We don't want to be giving away jobs on our ballclub in January," Price said.

Cingrani missed the final few months of the 2014 season due to a shoulder strain. He is 9-12 with a 3.49 ERA in 39 outings (29 starts) in his MLB career.

Tony Cingrani unlikely to return this season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani is unlikely to pitch for the major-league team again this season, MLB.com reports.

"At this point in time, I'm not anticipating him being back, simply because I don't think he would have enough time to get back and be able to help us in September," manager Bryan Price said.

Cingrani has yet to resume a throwing program since being sidlined by a shoulder strain in late June.


Tony Cingrani not close to returning


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani is not close to a return, according to MLB.com.

Cingrani is dealing with a shoulder injury. He attempted to begin a throwing program recently, but had to shut things down. While the team hasn't ruled him out for the rest of the season, it would be at least a week before Cingrani attempts to throw again. The club has considered giving him a platelet-rich injection to speed up his recovery.


Tony Cingrani restarts throwing program


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price said pitcher Tony Cingrani has restarted his throwing program, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer. Cingrani has been sidelined since late June due to a shoulder strain.

Tony Cingrani still on a throwing program


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani is still on a throwing program, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

Cingrani has been sidelined since late-June with an arm issue. The fact that his progress hasn't changed in the last month likely doesn't bode well. Cingrani posted a 4.55 ERA over 63 1/3 innings in the majors. 


Tony Cingrani lands on Triple-A disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Reds reliever Tony Cingrani was placed on the Triple-A disabled list Thursday.

Cingrani is dealing with a shoulder strain. It's unclear how much time he'll miss due to the injury. Cingrani posted a 4.55 ERA over 63 1/3 innings in the majors before being sent down.


Tony Cingrani dispatched by Reds to minors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Promising left-hander Tony Cingrani has been demoted by the Reds to Triple-A Louisville after losing his starting spot and pitching poorly in relief.

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. 


Tony Cingrani pitches well in relief debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani made his first relief appearance Sunday against the Brewers since manager Bryan Price made the decision Saturday to move Cingrani to the bullpen instead of sending him to the minors.

Cingrani tossed two scoreless innings in a 13-4 win. He walked one batter.

"I think we do have to prioritize this team -- in the end the most important thing is this team right now," manager Bryan Price said Saturday of his decision to keep Cingrani in the majors, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. "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."


Reds still unsure on what to do with Tony Cingrani


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price has not made a decision on pitcher Tony Cingrani's future, MLB.com reports. Cingrani is expected to either move to the bullpen or to be optioned to Triple-A to get more work as a starter.

"If I'm in the bullpen, I'm throwing the best stuff I can," Cingrani said. "I don't have to go seven innings or six innings. I only have to go maybe three. That's a little bit easier to me than having to go seven and limiting pitch counts since I am the bullpen, I am the help this time."

Tony Cingrani surrenders six runs in loss vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani took a loss Monday after giving up six earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out five and surrendering two home runs in his team's 6-2 defeat against the Dodgers.

Cingrani (2-7) was making what may be his last start with the Reds for a while, with Mat Latos potentially returning later this week. He didn't acquit himself well, with the big blow coming via a three-run home run in the fifth inning. Cingrani owns a 4.68 ERA and 58:31 K:BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings.


Is Tony Cingrani droppable in Fantasy?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) With reports that Tony Cingrani could lose his rotation spot when Mat Latos returns from the DL later this week, Fantasy owners are wondering if they should go ahead and drop the 24-year-old left-hander.

The short answer is "yes," but of course, it's never that simple. For Cingrani in particular, it's about as complicated as it gets.

I go into more detail in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, but to summarize, Cingrani was nothing short of ace caliber during his stint as a starter last year despite lacking a third pitch. He adds a third pitch to his arsenal this year, theoretically to give him a longer shelf life as a starter, and loses his effectiveness as a result.

So where do he and the Reds go from here? Does he ditch the slider with his move to the bullpen? Does ditching the slider condemn him to the bullpen, or does it help him get back in the rotation by improving his numbers? And does he go back to the slider once he's there?

I don't know, but I can watch this drama unfold without devoting a roster spot to him.


Tony Cingrani to lose spot in rotation?


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(6/8/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani appears headed to the bullpen after Monday's start, with Mat Latos expected to replace him in the rotation, reports NBC Sports. Cingrani is 2-6 with a 4.09 ERA in 10 starts.

Latos is making what could be his final rehab start Monday for Triple-A Louisville.


Tony Cingrani strikes out seven in loss vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani was charged with a loss Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 3-2 loss to the Giants.

Cingrani (2-6) delivered five scoreless innings before surrendering two home runs in the sixth inning and getting chased from the game. He owns a 4.09 ERA and 53:28 K:BB ratio in 55 innings. Cingrani is scheduled to take on the Dodgers Monday.


Tony Cingrani drops third straight decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Reds starter Tony Cingrani wasn't at his sharpest Thursday against the Diamondbacks, and he didn't get much help in a 4-0 loss.

Cingrani fell behind in the first inning thanks to a throwing error, and the Diamondbacks would trail from that point on. He gave up two earned runs following that, finishing five innings while allowing seven hits and a pair of walks. Cingrani struck out three batters while throwing 63 of 98 pitches for strikes.

Cingrani has struggled since his return from the disabled list, allowing 10 runs in 17 innings in three straight losses. He is 2-5 with a 4.01 ERA overall on the season, with his next start set for Wednesday against the Giants. 


Report: Tony Cingrani could be pitching for rotation spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) The Reds will have to remove someone from the rotation once Mat Latos is ready to be activated from the disabled list, and Tony Cingrani could be optioned to the minors as the odd man out, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

"It's important that (Cingrani) pitches well," manager Bryan Price said Sunday. "We're going to be in a situation soon where everybody's healthy and we have six starters for five spots. Pitching well would benefit anybody. But there's no doubt pitching well would benefit him."

Cingrani has struggled in two starts since returning from the disabled list, giving up four earned runs and walking three in each. He owns a 4.06 ERA and 43:23 K:BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings.
