Re: Tony Cingrani Thread
When Cueto comes back, I send Cingrani down to AAA regardless of the results.
Let him keep working on his secondary pitches down there.
In AAA, he should be throwing the percentage of fastballs/mix of pitches that they want him to throw in the majors. Period. Even if that damages his AAA stats.
I've been a big fan of Cingrani, but he's exceeded my expectations so far.
I still think he can benefit from finishing the year in AAA.
The Reds will also benefit. The season is still young. Having Cingrani stashed in AAA as a 6th starter (or late season addition to the bullpen) is an incredible weapon/insurance policy.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
