Reds’ Tony Cingrani Out With Shoulder Injury
Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani struggled last night against the Cubs, lasting just four innings, and now he’s headed to the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis.
He’s struggled with control and his fastball velocity has been down slightly, and unfortunately he’s also hurt again, like last season, when he missed time with a back injury.
For now the Reds have called up reliever Curtis Partch from Triple-A to replace Cingrani on the roster, but they may eventually add a starter to take his spot in the rotation and veteran left-hander Jeff Francis seems like a good bet.
