Cingrani returns to mound in nightcap of doubleheader

While Cincinnati's Mike Leake is the caliber of pitcher the Chicago Cubs could acquire prior to next week's trade deadline, they might feel the recent call up of Kyle Schwarber is enough to give their middling offense a lift. After the rookie catcher's bat helped the visiting Cubs even this series, they face Leake to open a split doubleheader against the Reds on Wednesday. With Cincinnati...

Are the Reds stretching out Tony Cingrani to start?

When spring training rolled around this season it came as a surprise to just about everyone, including Tony Cingrani, that the Cincinnati Reds weren’t considering him for a spot in the starting rotation. The move to the bullpen for the left hander didn’t seem to sit well with him when he first heard the news. The 25-year-old has pitched in 24 games out of the Reds bullpen this...

Tony Cingrani, David Holmberg and Sam LeCure throw a no hitter

While I was off at the Futures Game, the pitchers down in Louisville decided to have some fun of their own. Tony Cingrani made another rehab appearance for the Louisville Bats and threw four hitless innings with three walks and five strikeouts. He also hit a batter. The lefty then gave the game over to another lefty, as David Holmberg took the ball out of the bullpen. Holmberg pitched...

The Wind Up: Unwritten Nonsense and Rediscovering Value

Anyone familiar with me knows I loathe unwritten rules. That star of hatred shines brightest in Major League Baseball. It’s almost as if some are made up on the spot. I can compare these athletes to people giving retail workers a hard time: they’re just looking for something to be upset about. But the game is not entirely full of petty drama; there have been players who...

Tony Cingrani, Now In A Position To Succeed

Tony Cingrani is going to the Reds bullpen, having already been ruled out of the Cincinnati starting competition. If that’s a surprise, it’s only because after they shed Alfredo Simon and Mat Latos over the winter, the team might now actually start the season with one (or both!) of Paul Maholm and Jason Marquis in the […]

Why Are the Cincinnati Reds Putting Anthony Cingrani in the Bullpen?

The Cincinnati Reds won just 76 games last season, largely due to a Joey Votto injury and Jay Bruce hitting .217.  Their offense was near the bottom in most categories, saved from last by Todd Frazier, but the pitching staff was average to above average, thanks to Johnny Cueto having a Cy Young type season.  But instead of making changes to the offense, which they attempted...

Tony Cingrani to the pen; veterans to the rotation?

There was some big news out of spring training earlier today when the Cincinnati Reds said that Tony Cingrani would be heading to the bullpen. That alone is an interesting move. In his career as a starter, Cingrani has a 3.50 ERA in 157.0 innings pitcher with 167 strikeouts and 67 walks. Those are strong numbers. He did however struggle in 2014, though it turns out he was injured...

Report: Tony Cingrani is ‘disappointed and angry’ after Reds shift him to the bullpen

In 2013, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani had a very good rookie campaign. In 2014, things couldn’t have went any worse for Cingrani after an injury filled season. As Cingrani tries to regroup from his terrible year, the Reds have decided that they are shifting him to the bullpen. Cingrani wasn’t happy with the news and according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer...

Devin Mesoraco missed a month over two different DL trips. Brandon Phillips missed a month. Jay Bruce missed two weeks but never recovered once he came back.
