Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker said SP Tony Cingrani will move to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Johnny Cueto (shoulder) is back from the disabled list and Mike Leake has pitched outstanding of late, leaving no room for Cingrani. You can hold onto him in deep NL-leagues and keeper formats, but otherwise he's not worth taking up space on your roster.

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is scheduled to make his next start against the New York Mets Tuesday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: Even though Tony Cingrani has pitched well since being called up, he's not guaranteed to stick around when Johnny Cueto (lat) comes off the disabled list next week. Dusty Baker is usually loyal to those with experience, which Leake has over Cingrani.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (lat) is set to return from the disabled list and start Monday, May 20, which is the date for SP Mike Leake's next start. However, The Cincinnati Enquirer's John Fay doesn't think that necessarily means Leake will be bumped from the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Make plans to put Cueto back on your active fantasy baseball roster. Although Tony Cingrani (shoulder) had his start pushed back due to minor arm troubles, Leake still seems like the likely candidate to be bumped from the rotation. We won't know for sure until next week, though, so stay tuned.

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has been pushed back in the rotation because he's been dealing with shoulder soreness, according to manager Dusty Baker.
Fantasy Tip: With Johnny Cueto (lat) nearing a return from the disabled list, this could affect Cingrani's short-term standing in the rotation if he can't make his next start. It could also mean that Mike Leake stays in the rotation. Stay tuned.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (lat) will begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Dayton Thursday, May 9, after he threw a successful bullpen session earlier this week.
Fantasy Tip: Cueto is nearing a return to the starting rotation unless he suffers another setback. He will get his rotation post back, it's just a question of who will get bumped as a result, Tony Cingrani or Mike Leake. Stay tuned.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (lat) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday, May 6, and didn't have any setbacks.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear when Cueto will throw next or when he'll embark on a minor league rehab assignment to build arm strength. The Reds will be cautious in bringing him back now after he already had one setback. Plus, it keeps them from making a decision on who to bump from the rotation when he returns. Mike Leake is probably the most vulnerable right now with Tony Cingrani pitching well.
