Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that he doesn't expect Tony Cingrani (shoulder) to return this season.
Cingrani had to be shut down from a throwing program earlier this month after feeling renewed discomfort in his left shoulder. "At this point in time, I'm not anticipating him being back, simply because I don't think he would have enough time to get back and be able to help us in September," Price said. Aug 26 - 7:57 PM

Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has been shut down from a throwing program after feeling renewed discomfort.

Cingrani has been out since mid-June with a left shoulder impingement. He could receive a platelet-rich plasma injection to help speed up his recovery, but the Reds aren't expected to have him as an option until very late in the season in a best-case scenario. "He'd certainly be a guy we would like to see as a possible a mid-to-late September option," manager Bryan Price said. "But he's so far removed from pitching now. I don't want to say it's unlikely, but things are going to have to happen rather soon in order for him to be a consideration for September."

Reds manager Bryan Price said Monday that Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has restarted his throwing program.

Cingrani landed on the disabled list at Triple-A Louisville in late June due to a left shoulder strain. He's still likely a couple of weeks away from returning to game action.

Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing.

Cingrani has been on Triple-A Louisville's disabled list for the last month 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," Reds manager Bryan Price said. It's not clear when Cingrani will be allowed to pick up a ball again, but obviously he's not going to be an option for the Reds for a while.

Tony Cingrani has been placed on Triple-A Louisville's disabled list with a left shoulder strain.

Cingrani also missed time earlier this season with the big club due to a shoulder injury. It's not clear at this point how much time he might miss. He had yet to make an appearance for Louisville after being sent down last week.

Reds optioned LHP Tony Cingrani to Triple-A Louisville.

Cingrani walked in the winning run in Thursday's loss to the Pirates, which as it turns out was the final straw. The lefty was removed from the Reds' rotation last week and is probably best off staying stretched out in Louisville's rotation.
Jun 20 - 3:23 PM

Tony Cingrani walked in the winning run in a 4-3 loss to the Pirates in 12 innings on Thursday.

Cingrani allowed a double and a walk to begin the 11th inning, but managed to wiggle out of the jam to keep the Reds alive. However, he gave up a one-out single to Gaby Sanchez in his second inning of work before balking him over to second base and intentionally walking Josh Harrison. He got Jordy Mercer to strike out swinging for the second out, but then hit Clint Barmes with a pitch before walking Russell Martin with the bases loaded to end it. The Reds have decided to keep Cingrani in the bullpen for now, but if he fails to find success, they could opt to keep him stretched out as rotation insurance in Triple-A.
Jun 19 - 5:47 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said Friday that he's unsure whether the team will move Tony Cingrani to the bullpen or send him to Triple-A.

Cingrani, who has been bumped from the rotation to accommodate the return of Mat Latos (elbow), could undoubtedly help the team as a reliever. However, the Reds might decide he's best off staying stretched out in the Triple-A rotation. We'll know their decision on Saturday when Latos is activated.
Jun 13 - 5:18 PM

Tony Cingrani was tagged for six runs in 4 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Dodgers.

This is going to be Cingrani's last start for a while, as he just hasn't been the same pitcher since going down with shoulder tendinitis last month. The Reds likely were planning to send him to the pen to make room for Mat Latos, but with the way he's struggling, letting him work through his problems in the Triple-A rotation might make more sense.
Jun 10 - 12:27 AM

Tony Cingrani fell to 2-6, allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings as the Reds were defeated by the Giants 3-2 on Wednesday.

Cingrani was humming along nicely until the sixth inning, when Michael Morse hit a solo home run and Juan Perez hit a two-run homer to give the Giants the lead. Overall, the lefty allowed six hits, walked three, and struck out seven. While Cingrani hasn't been awful this season, he hasn't been reliable, having been able to pitch through six innings in only five of his 10 starts this season. He will take a 4.09 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP into his next start against the Dodgers at home.
Jun 4 - 10:38 PM

Tony Cingrani surrendered three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits over five innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

It was speculated that this start could determine Cingrani's fate in the rotation. If so, it doesn't say much. Cingrani was passable, striking out three and walking two in falling to 2-5 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. Cingrani or Alfredo Simon will head to the bullpen when Mat Latos (elbow) returns. Cingrani might still be suffering from a sore shoulder that is syphoning off a little velocity, and it wouldn't shock if he were demoted or placed on the disabled list, either. Cingrani is currently scheduled to host the Giants next week.
May 30 - 12:27 AM

John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that it's possible Tony Cingrani could be demoted from the rotation when Mat Latos (elbow) returns.

That would mean Alfredo Simon, who boasts a 2.31 ERA over nine starts, would remain in the rotation. Cingrani holds a 4.06 ERA but has also struck out a batter per inning, while Simon has just 36 punchouts over 58 1/3 frames. For what it's worth, Reds manager Bryan Price offered no clues when asked about Simon potentially keeping his spot over Cingrani. "It's important that (Cingrani) pitches well," Price said. "We're going to be in a situation soon where everybody's healthy and we have six starters for five spots. Pitching well would benefit anybody. But there's no doubt pitching well would benefit him."
May 25 - 11:34 AM

Tony Cingrani fell to 2-4 as the Reds lost the Cardinals on Saturday night in Cincinnati.

Cingrani struggled out of the gate, yielding a leadoff double in the first inning to Matt Carpenter and then an RBI single to Matt Holliday. Yadier Molina hit a solo homer in the fourth and the Cards added two more runs in the sixth. Cingrani allowed four runs in all, and has now lost two straight starts since returning from the disabled list. He's a matchup-to-matchup play at this point in fantasy leagues.
May 24 - 10:37 PM

Tony Cingrani fell to 2-3 on the season after giving up four runs in six innings of work against the Phillies on Sunday.

The Phillies were crushing everything Cingrani -- activated from the disabled list prior to the ballgame -- was throwing early, as Jimmy Rollins and Wil Nieves hit back-to-back home runs to start the bottom of the first. He allowed three home runs in total for the first time in his career. Overall, he allowed seven hits, walked three, and struck out seven. Cingrani will take his 3.76 ERA into his next start against the Cardinals at home.
May 18 - 4:55 PM

Reds activated LHP Tony Cingrani from the 15-day disabled list.

Cingrani missed just barely over the minimum amount of time due to a minor shoulder ailment. He didn't make a rehab start, so his pitch count could be relatively limited against the Phillies Sunday. Cingrani boasts a 3.34 ERA with 32 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings this season.
