He's 26 and best of all, left handed. Cingrani is currently the ony left handed arm on Louisville's roster. The Reds need options IMO. Time to give this kid a little more attention.
Anyone have more info on Dennick?
Bump. With his promotion to AAA, this is a good time to revisit a discussion of his potential. My guess is that with Galarraga gone, he will start at Louisville. His K/9 has been down this year, but that might be attributable to pitching longer stints as a starter. Perhaps, the move is intended to create another late season emergency option in either starter or bullpen role.
