They're in the same level and Cingrani's pitched much, much better. I realize Cingrani needs to work on his third pitch, but Corcino needs to work on his control. Too, Cingrani's LH, too, and has a much higher K rate, indicating more movement, better control on his fastball and a more effective off-speed pitch.
Is it doug's opinion that carries so much weight, or is it scouting reports by other supposed experts who likely haven't seen him pitch at all? (Or, being generous, twice in two years.)
Cingrani is older and Corcino skipped a level. That may have slowed his development a bit, but obviously not enough to make him ineffective. We hit AAA next year and Corcino blows up while Cingrani struggles, nobody would be surprised.
Joey Votto put up a inferior AAA season in 2007 than his AA 2006 season, didn't mean much.
