Cingrani's a closer candidate as early as next season. As a lefty, he has a chance to be a difference-maker arm, a la Chapman, Bray, or Marshall last season. You want to keep that kind of arm in your system, IMO.
Tough to be a closer without a quality second pitch. I doubt he develops a quality one by next season.
