I guess its Cingrani's ability to spot his fastball wherever he wants it. That seems like a bankable skill. Corcino has good pitches, but they don't seem as bankable as Cingrani's fastball command. Maybe I'm over-estimating Cingrani's ability here, but if he can spot the fastball the way I understand he can, that would make him a near certainty as a reliever. Corcino has good stuff and good pitches, but seems to have a greater chance to miss out and become a non-factor.
