    This year, Cingrani has added an intriguing new 11-5 sweeping curveball. It’s a slow breaker with tight rotation and consistent shape that he can throw for strikes.

    With the addition of his curveball, Cingrani’s development is now tied to his changeup and his ability to improve his command. - Fangraphs

    Yeah, he emailed me the piece yesterday to get my opinion on it. I disagreed with the control and the change up aspect of what he said. But again, he can only go off of what he has seen.

    When it comes to Cingrani and his control and command, it is interesting to me that through June of last year, I would have told you his command was good and his control was outstanding. He could pop the mitt on the corners most of the time. But down the stretch he lost that ability. Still within the strikezone with the fastball, but was missing his spots some. So far this year? Wild in the zone, but still in the zone. Poor command, good control.

    Also, here is the "curveball" or the "slider" or the "slurve" or the "Fred" depending on what you want to call it. Anywhere from 71-75 MPH.

    You mean the "breaking ball", right?

    Well that didn't sound too optimistic. Oh well, something's working for him. I'm ready to see what it is.

    I love Cameron and Fangraphs, but I'm usually disappointed by the articles written by others on the site. This is no exception.

    Not a very good report. I guess we'll have to see for ourselves. I was planning to go to AAA to watch him with a buddy, but looks like we will get to watch on FSO later in the week. Nice to see a lefty which seemed to be the one missing link in the Reds in 2013.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!
