The latest Tony Cingrani MLB and fantasy baseball news

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cincinnati Reds C Corky Miller started Tuesday, April 23, against the Chicago Cubs, catching SP Tony Cingrani, whom he has worked with extensively with Triple-A Louisville. "(Miller) is catching Cingrani tonight because he knows Cingrani," manager Dusty Baker said. "(C Devin Mesoraco) had to call him to ask advice about how to catch Cingrani. Now we have the advice-giver in house." It was Miller's first big-league start since Sept. 29, 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Cingrani's major league debut as a starter couldn't have come at a better time, against one of the worst hitting teams in the majors. He doesn't have electric stuff, but his deception makes him effective on the bump. He should be owned in all leagues.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (lat) doesn't have a timetable for when he'll resume throwing, and he's eligible to return from the disabled list Tuesday, April 22. However, the longer he goes without throwing, the longer it'll take him to regain arm strength and return. "We want to make sure he's pain-free, has a good range of motion and base of strength," trainer Paul Lessard said. "He's feeling good. It could be a couple of days. It could be a couple more."
Fantasy Tip: It seems extremely unlikely for Cueto to return from the DL next Tuesday since he has yet to resume throwing. The longer Cueto is out, the more value Tony Cingrani, who is filling in in the rotation, carries. Cingrani should be owned in all formats by now.

Fantasy Tip: Pick up Cingrani wherever he's available. He has enticing strikeout upside for as long as he stays in Cincy's starting rotation. There's a good chance he goes back to Louisville when Johnny Cueto (lat) returns, though, so this is likely a short-term opportunity.

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani will be recalled from Triple-A Louisville to start against the Miami Marlins Thursday, April 18, taking the rotation spot of SP Johnny Cueto (lat). Cingrani has 14 1/3 scoreless innings to start the year at Louisville in three starts while giving up three hits and two walks.
Fantasy Tip: If you're in need of pitching, don't hesitate to add Cingrani, who has dominated at Louisville in the early going. He has an excellent matchup against the punchless Marlins, too. It's unclear if Cingrani will stick when Cueto returns, but he'll have at least three or four starts to prove himself.
