Cingrani actually started a lot in college. In Junior College he started 21 of 21 games, then as a junior he started 6 games (he only appeared in 6 games), and as a senior he was moved to the bullpen.
Buckley moved because they didn't see him as a third base option. They tried him in the outfield in instructional league, but the results weren't good enough to keep trying it out in the beginning.
