Re: Tony Cingrani - the next Zach Stewart or the next Cliff Lee?
Well, I wouldn't trade him (unless overwhelmed, of course) because I think his potential is probably greater than his current value. I wouldn't move him to the bullpen until he proves he can't start. And I wouldn't write him into the rotation until the circumstances (his dominance or somebody else's ineffectiveness) demand it. I'd simply keep pitching him and let it develop organically. That might seem like a no-answer answer; but not really.
