Dodgers and LHP Tony Cingrani avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

Jan 12 - 2:33 PM

Dodgers acquired LHP Tony Cingrani from the Reds in exchange for INF/OF Scott Van Slyke and C/INF Hendrik Clementina.

Cingrani has had issue with the home run ball this season, but he boasts a 24/6 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings. He'll give the Dodgers another left relief arm and is under team control through 2019.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Reds have traded Tony Cingrani to the Dodgers.

Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer was first to report that Cingrani had been dealt, and Rosenthal provides the landing spot. Scott Van Slyke and a prospect are headed to Cincy, according to Buchanan. Cingrani owns a rough 5.40 ERA in 25 appearances this season, mostly due to issues with the home run ball.

Reds activated LHP Tony Cingrani from the 10-day disabled list.

Cingrani will return to the Reds' bullpen on Tuesday night after missing several weeks with a severe right oblique strain. He had a shiny 1.93 ERA through his first five appearances (4 2/3 innings) before the injury.

Tony Cingrani (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Class A Dayton.

Cingrani has been out since April 18 due to a right oblique strain, but he's finally ready to return to game action. He should be ready to rejoin the Reds' bullpen in early June if all goes well. The southpaw had a 1.93 ERA through five appearances prior to the injury.

Tony Cingrani (oblique) threw a bullpen session Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

"He threw a 15-pitch bullpen with no restriction," manager Bryan Price told "The ball came out of his hand good. He didn't have any issues. So he'll progress and throw another bullpen on Friday." Cingrani has been on the disabled list since April 20 with a right oblique strain. He's on track to return in mid-to-late May.

Tony Cingrani (oblique) will resume a throwing program in the next few days.

Cingrani will make a couple rehab appearances before being activated, so it would appear he's still at least a couple weeks away. He posted a 1.93 ERA over his first five appearances this season before going on the disabled list.

Reds placed LHP Tony Cingrani on 10-day disabled list with an oblique injury.

The move comes seemingly out of nowhere. The Reds have not announced who will occupy his spot on the roster. The left-hander worked as the Reds' closer for a stretch last year but has since transitioned into a setup role ahead of ninth-inning man Raisel Iglesias. Cingrani holds an impressive 1.93 ERA over five outings this season.

Reds and LHP Tony Cingrani avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.825 million contract.

The lefty was arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason. Cingrani held a 4.14 ERA while recording 17 saves for the Reds in 2016 and will enter 2017 in a setup role.

Tony Cingrani walked a pair of batters but hung on to convert his 16th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Raisel Iglesias was much more impressive in striking out three in a scoreless seventh and eighth, but Cingrani was able to pitch around a couple free passes to nail down the victory. Iglesias has notched a couple saves this month, but Cingrani still looks like the favorite for saves in Cincy.

Tony Cingrani set down the side in order to snare his 15th save of the season on Wednesday versus the Marlins.

He is one of the least-reliable closers in baseball but he got the job done tonight. His 3.75 ERA is not too bad but he sports a scary 38/21 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 51 1/3 innings. Pundits expect the left-handed Cingrani to eventually cede the ninth inning to either Raisel Iglesias or Michael Lorenzen.

Tony Cingrani gave up a hit and a walk but closed out the Marlins on Tuesday to earn his 14th save.

Cingrani gave up a leadoff triple and a one-out walk to bring the tying run to the plate, but he got a double play off the bat of Chris Johnson to end the threat. The save was his first in more than two weeks and his 14th of the season. The southpaw owns a 3.75 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 50 1/3 innings overall.

Tony Cingrani imploded in a non-save chance Monday, getting charged with five runs on three hits and two walks in a loss to the Cardinals.

Cingrani yielded a leadoff single to Yadier Molina but rebounded to retire the next two hitters. However, the closer then allowed a walk, a hit by pitch, two singles and another walk before being pulled in favor of Ross Ohlendorf. Ohlendorf walked a batter and then hit one with a pitch as the Reds completed the meltdown. Cingrani had been pitching well of late, but this effort pushed his ERA from 3.02 to 3.91.

Tony Cingrani took his third loss after getting charged with run in the 11th inning Tuesday against the Braves.

Cingrani pitched a scoreless 10th in a tie game, then was sent back out to face a left-hander to start the 11th. Nick Markakis, though, singled against him and later came around to score after Cingrani was removed. It wasn't a save situation, so the loss today probably won't hurt his cause. He's converted his last five save chances, including the only one he's gotten this month.
