I would rather have one of our best pitchers helping the Reds win games in 2013, not down playing in what are basically exhibition games in the minor leagues. This "Cingrani needs to work on his secondary pitches" stuff is so overblown. He's extremely effective doing exactly what he's been doing. Does he need to improve his secondary pitches? Yes. But he absolutely should be with the Reds helping the Reds in their quest for the playoffs and hopefully more. He is unquestionably one of the top-10 pitchers the Reds have ... and they carry 12. No need to overthink this one. Cingrani needs to be with the big club for good. His future is as a starter, but he's needed as a reliever right now.
