Cingrani's lack of secondary pitches drops him quite a bit in my book. I just can't see a guy with average velocity getting by as a starter with nothing but a fastball. Sure, he gets the most out of that fastball by mixing in a ton of deception and movement, but he doesn't have any other pitches to speak of.
I think he's going to be damn solid lefty out of the bullpen for many years to come, but I can't justify ranking a bullpen guy ahead of guys who are potential starters either on the field or on the mound.
