Cingrani is currently on the disabled list at Triple-A Louisville with a left shoulder impingement.
"Other than the strengthening stuff, he hasn't gotten to the point where he's able to start throwing yet," Price said.
The plan, when the Reds sent Cingrani to Triple-A, was for him to be the first man up if the Reds needed a pitcher -- either a starter or reliever. Instead, he never made an appearance for the Bats, going straight to the DL.

Bryan Price said Tony Cingrani has restarted his throwing program #Reds
There's more tangible results on Cingrani, who has been on the disabled list since being sent down to Triple-A. There he's been hampered by a sore left shoulder, but he's started throwing again in Cincinnati recently.
"He did initiate a throwing program without discomfort," Price said. "He tried to initiate it seven-to-10 days ago and there was still some discomfort, or there was discomfort in some of the exercises he was doing, so they did get really invested in the throwing program. In just the last couple of days, he started playing catch with Logan (Ondrusek) in Cincinnati. From the reports I got, he had no discomfort."
