Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani is working on enhancing his repertoire heading into his second full season, working on a slider during spring training. RP Sean Marshall suggested a useful tip. "He said to throw it off your fastball," Cingrani said. "He said (Hall of Fame SP Greg Maddux) told him to just throw off that fastball arm slot and about halfway to the plate, it should look exactly like the same pitch, and the slider will fall and the fastball will jump on them. It seems to work pretty well."

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker said Friday, Sept. 27, that he is uncertain if SP Tony Cingrani (back) will pitch again this season. "I don't know - probably not," Baker said. "With him, it's a whole lot different for getting him in the game at this point in the year."
Fantasy Tip: Cingrani is unlikely to be added to the postseason roster if he cannot pitch in the final two regular season games, so we might not see him again until 2014.
