Reds | Tony Cingrani struggles in start

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:05:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani allowed five runs on six hits over 2 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22, with two walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: It was Cingrani's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) first start since coming off the disabled list with a strained left shoulder, so the struggles he experienced weren't surprising. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he demonstrates that he can consistently get outs.

Reds | Tony Cingrani pegged for Game 2 Wednesday

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:45:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani (shoulder) will start the second game of the doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Not only will it be Cingrani's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) first start at the major league level this season, he is also working his way back from injury. FantasyScore players should likely pass on taking a leap of faith with the hard-throwing lefty. Seasonal owners in deep NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues should grab him now, though. There could be an opening in the rotation after the trade deadline.

Reds | Tony Cingrani could enter rotation

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:11:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani (shoulder) will make another rehab start for Class AAA Louisville Friday, July 17, but his next start after that could be with the Reds. Manager Bryan Price said they will stretch Cingrani out more as a starter. The Reds have a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22, and Cingrani could help fill in. Cingrani has thrown nine shutout innings while allowing two hits, five walks and striking out 12 in his three rehab outings so far. Cincinnati may need depth in their rotation if they trade away SPs Johnny Cueto and/or Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on this development and those in NL-only leagues and deeper mixed leagues might want to speculate and pick up Cingrani now. He had a 3.47 ERA and struck out 10.0 hitters per nine innings in 24 outings as a reliever this year. He won't have that high of a strikeout rate if he returns to the rotation, but an addition of some offspeed pitches could help him be effective for fantasy owners in the second half if he sticks in a rotation spot.

Reds | Robert Stephenson, Tony Cingrani options

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 16:20:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SPs Robert Stephenson and Tony Cingrani could be recalled to enter the starting rotation if the team trades SPs Johnny Cueto or Mike Leake, or both, at the trading deadline. Stephenson is 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA for Class AAA Louisville this year, and Cingrani is being stretched out as a starter after rehabbing from a shoulder strain. The Reds won't necessarily use Cingrani as a starter when he's healthy, but they want to have options. Cingrani was too reliant on his fastball out of spring training, and since he's worked on adding offspeed pitches. Cingrani or SP Raisel Iglesias (oblique) are likely the first two options to take a rotation spot if needed. Stephenson has the best stuff in the organization as a starter, though.

Fantasy Tip: Stephenson is MLB.com's 18th overall ranked prospect this year, and now is the time to stash him away in keeper and deep NL-only leagues if he's available. Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Cingrani are likely widely available in the majority of formats, and both could be valuable to those in the deepest of mixed leagues if they grab a rotation spot in the second half.

Reds | Tony Cingrani a rotation option

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:13:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani (shoulder) is an option for the starting rotation, according to manager Bryan Price.

Fantasy Tip: Cingrani began a rehab assignment at Class AAA Louisville and threw two innings in relief Friday. The team plans to stretch him out down there, and he could take a rotation spot if they trade Johnny Cueto by July 31. Cingrani is an NL-only add and one to watch in mixed leagues.

Reds | Tony Cingrani not in rotation plans

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:51:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani will continue to pitch out of the bullpen, according to manager Bryan Price. Cingrani would likely need to be designated to the minors to stretch out his innings in order to join the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to ignore Cingrani in the majority of formats, as it doesn't appear he'll join the rotation any time soon. He is also too far down the closer depth chart to warrant attention from the save chasers.

Reds | Tony Cingrani will pitch from the 'Pen

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:34:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani will be used as a reliever for the remainder of spring training and will pitch out of the bullpen this season, manager Bryan Price said Monday, March 16.

Fantasy Tip: Cingrani dealt with shoulder issues last season, and unless he somehow manages to work his way back into the rotation, he carries little fantasy value. Cingrani could prove to be a valuable middle reliever in mixed leagues, if he can keep his ratios low and move his K/9 closer to his 10.3 mark from 2013. Still, it is best to take a wait-and-see approach with Cingrani.

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 10:31:15 -0800

Reds | Tony Cingrani likely done

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 18:15:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has not resumed a throwing program, and he isn't being counted upon to help the team again this season. "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 Tuesday, Aug. 26.
