From the sounds of things, we're looking at needing someone for maybe 2 starts...Pedro should be expected to be able to fill that small void. If not, he should be released IMO.
So in the thick of a pennant race, the Reds are just running guys out there to see if they can fill a void? If so, this team just took a huge step back in my book. These guys pitch in September when you are out of it or already have it locked up. If they knew about Cueto, they should have worked it to get Cingrani on this day. If he's not needed, great, if he is, he's pitching tonight.
