This is so true. The Reds were incredibly lucky last season regarding the starting pitching health. Maybe the Reds need a plan right from the beginning of the upcoming season for using 6 starting pitchers. I don't mean a 6-man daily rotation, but instead taking turns sitting each starter down for a little while over the season to try to keep them strong. Maybe Cingrani could fit that role as a 6th swing starter - or, if Chapman moves to the starting rotation, maybe Leake would do it.
