I've also read that Cingrani has 3 pitches he can throw. But I also read that he doesn't use them frequently enough, and this is the reason some question his ability to be a MLB starter. However, I would have to think he's got time to develop his other pitchers, especially if he's already shown that he can throw them effectively on occasion.
I agree with this and I feel like a good season in AAA would help him a lot, but I feel like he could also take Leake's spot this season
