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 | CBSSports.com
(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.


Tony Cingrani not at his best in loss to Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani was not at his best on Saturday against the Cardinals, surrendering four runs on seven hits in six innings of work, dropping to 2-4 on the year.

Cingrani struck out four and walked three in 91 pitches, 54 for strikes. His ERA now stands at 4.06. Over his first two starts back from the disabled list covering 12 innings, Cingrani has allowed eight earned runs.

Following the 6-3 loss, Cingrani will make his next start Thursday at Arizona.

Tony Cingrani loses in return from DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani took the hill in a major-league game Sunday at Philadelphia for the first time since April 30 because of shoulder soreness. However, it wasn't a pleasant return as Philadelphia routed Cincinnati, 8-3.

Cingrani (2-3) took the hill in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run lead, which he quickly squandered as Jimmy Rollins and Wil Nieves hit back-to-back home runs leading off the bottom of the inning to tie the game at 2. Cingrani would settle down, however, striking out the final two batters of the inning.

The game remained tied until Chase Utley had an RBI groundout in the fifth inning. Marlon Byrd then added the third solo home run off Cingrani to lead off the sixth inning, extending the lead to 4-2. Cingrani had allowed all of three home runs in his first six starts.

The left-handed hurler was charged with four runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings. He struck out seven in his return from the disabled list. His next scheduled start is for Saturday against the Cardinals.


Tony Cingrani to return Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani is set to return to the rotation Sunday against the Phillies.

Cingrani has been sidelined since late-April due to shoulder soreness. Cingrani was expected to start Saturday, but a rainout early in the week allowed the team to push him back another day. Cingrani has a 3.34 ERA in 32 1/3 innings.


Tony Cingrani still expected to return soon


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Though he won't pitch Saturday against the Phillies, we should see Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani (shoulder) back from the disabled list sometime in the next week.

A rainout Wednesday has the Reds changing their rotation plans, and Cingrani's scheduled start date is no longer open. Still, manager Bryan Price told MLB.com he expects Cingrani to return sometime on the team's upcoming road trip.

"We're still optimistic that Tony will pitch on that road trip," Price said. "There's nothing that suggests he won't. Which game, we'll probably have a better idea in the next 48 hours. He could pitch on Sunday or Monday the way things are laying out now."

The Reds don't have a started listed for Sunday's series finale, so that seems like the most obvious spot. He threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, after getting through 80 pitches two days earlier. 


Rainout allows Reds to shuffle rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) The Reds will shuffle their rotation a bit for Thursday's doubleheader, after Wednesday's game against the Padres was rained out.

Johnny Cueto will start Game 1 of the doubleheader, and the team will call someone up as the 26th man to start the second game, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. That should allow them to push Alfredo Simon's start to Friday and Homer Bailey to Saturday, removing the need for a fill-in Saturday. 

This chance in schedule would likely cost Tony Cingrani a chance to return from the disabled list, as expected, Saturday. 


Tony Cingrani expects to pitch Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani (shoulder) said he feels good after throwing 80 pitches over the weekend, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Cingrani said he expects to start Saturday at Philadelphia and added the time off "definitely helped."

Tony Cingrani could make return Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani (shoulder) remains on track to make his return to the rotation Saturday at Philadelphia, per The Cincinnati Enquirer. Though, the Reds still listing Saturday's starter as TBA.

"He's got a little more to accomplish," manager Bryan Price said. "He's got a couple more bullpens. But we anticipate he'll pitch for us on the road trip."


Tony Cingrani progressing, eyeing Phillies series for return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani threw a bullpen session Friday, which helps shed some light on his possible timeline for returning from shoulder tendinitis.

Cingrani threw was MLB.com referred to as a "light" bullpen session Friday, and the progress he has made has the team optimistic he will be able to return during the next turn through the rotation.

"It went well," manager Bryan Price said. "Our plan is to have him ready for the Philadelphia series [next weekend]. When that time comes, we want him to feel like it's his Opening Day again. We want his arm to feel that good. We don't want him to get 80 percent recovery. We want 100 percent recovery, and we don't want to have to go back down the same road."

The Reds have their rotation set until the Saturday game of that series, May 17. That will likely be Cingrani's target date, and it doesn't seem as if he will need a minor-league rehab assignment. 


Tony Cingrani unhappy over decision to shelve him


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani is not exactly turning cartwheels over the team's decision to place him on the disabled list with left shoulder tendinitis.

"It's their call ... they want to be cautious," he told the Cincinnati Enquirer. But he added his belief that he could have continued pitching and that he doesn't agree with the move.


Reds place Tony Cingrani on DL, promote Curtis Partch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Shoulder tendinitis has landed Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani on the 15-day disabled list. Righty Curtis Partch has been recalled from Triple-A Louisville to take his place on the roster.

Cingrani has been mediocre since his first start. He is 2-2 in his last five outings, during which he has surrendered 12 runs and 15 walks in 25 1/3 innings. He lasted just four innings against the weak-hitting Cubs on Wednesday.
