Add the possibility that Cingrani could easily be just as effective in the rotation as Corcino and that tips the scales IMO.
It's close though. This post probably makes it seem that I feel more strongly than I actually do.
I don't know. Put Corcino in the bullpen and he probably has a mid 90's fastball and a really nice slider.
Put Cingrani in the bullpen and he is still a guy who wants to throw 80% fastballs who doesn't trust his change up.
