Cingrani profile; top 10 prospects
The one tiny exerpt I'll post, since there has been a lot of discussion of it, is this...
As a sidenote, I don't think Cingrani is a lock to stay up at the Show even if he is pitching well. He'll obviously be here until Cueto is back, but there is going to have be a major difference between his performance and Leake's for him to stay up. And there could be, but if both of their performances to date will be comparable when Cueto gets back, I think Cingrani will be sent back down.
You might be right, but IMO it would be a poor use of resources when we have a starting LF who is OPSing .483 (and has a sub-.700 OPS over the last two seasons). Unless Ludwick comes back within a week or two of Cueto's return and Cingrani's subsequent demotion -which seems unlikely-, I'd rather trade Leake and upgrade the OF (as well as the minors).
