Can #Reds repeat 2013 numbers on this day?


Last year at this time, Cincinnati Reds won big! Can they do it again in 2014? Here is what happened last year.


Cincinnati went deep four times and Tony Cingrani threw seven strong innings after his callup from Triple-A in the Reds’ 12-2 victory over the Cubs on Tuesday night. Todd Frazier, Joey Votto, Xavier Paul and Zack Cozart went yard to support Tony Cingrani, who allowed two runs over seven strong innings after his callup from Triple-A. Cody Ransom homered for the Cubs, but Matt Garza allowed a career-high nine runs.

#Reds Cingrani vs #Dodgers Haren 06.09.2014


Tony Cingrani gets the call as Reds host Dan Haren, Dodgers.
Tony Cingrani will try to help keep the Reds rolling as they welcome Dan Haren and the Dodgers to Great American Ball Park on Monday night in the first of a four-game set.
Cingrani gave up three runs on six hits while walking three (one intentional) and striking out seven in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday. In his only career start against the Dodgers, he tossed seven shutout innings and struck out 11 last July 28.

Dan Haren 14 | P
5 – 4 ERA 3.50

Cueto feeling good


News of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto is spreading all over twitter right now that he is feeling better and ready to come back. I wanted to post these tweets on here so everyone can take a look for themselves. Getting Johnny Cueto back in the rotation healthy will really help this ball club out. Tony Cingrani has been pitching great in Cueto’s spot but having the Reds number one starter back will really boost this team.

4 Ks in one inning!


Is Tony Cingrani ready? After watching this kid pitch I would say he is very ready. He is exactly what the Reds need at the bottom of their rotation right now. A left handed strike thrower who is not afraid to hit the strike zone. Of course teams will adjust once they get to see him more but hopefully he can fool them for a few more starts and keep winning ball games.

Reds prospects


RedsMinorLeagues.com posted the Cincinnati Reds new Top 25 Prospect List and I am still very pleased with what they have in the farm system for the future. Doug Gray, @dougdirt24 says, “With the Reds trading away [Yonder] Alonso, [Yasmani] Grandal, [Brad] Boxberger, [Ronald] Torreyes and [Dave] Sappelt the Reds lost 5 of their Top 25 prospects in my rankings.” Even with trading away these players I still think the Reds have a great batch of young talented players ready for the future and I am very confident that Walt Jocketty will get more great prospects when they are needed by trade or draft.

Cincinnati Reds new Top 25 Prospect List includes:
Devin Mesoraco, Daniel Corcino, Yorman Rodriguez, Robert Stephenson, Billy Hamilton, Zack Cozart, Neftali Soto, Didi Gregorius, Henry Rodriguez, Todd Frazier, Gabriel Rosa, Kyle Lotzkar, David Vidal, Tony Cingrani, J.C. Sulbaran, Ryan LaMarre, Donald Lutz, Tucker Barnhart, Sean Buckley, Amir Garrett, Donnie Joseph, Junior Arias, Juan Duran, Pedro Villarreal and Nick Christiani.

LHP Tony Cingrani


Baseball America’s 2011 Pioneer League Top 20 Prospects had 4 Cincinnati Reds prospects in it. Tony Cingrani, Ryan Wright, Sean Buckley and Kyle Waldrop.

Coming in at number 8 on the list was LHP Tony Cingrani who was drafted by the Reds in the 3rd round of the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft. This 22-year-old played his first season with Billings Mustangs. Getting a 3-2 record and a 1.75 ERA in 51.1 innings. (13 games started) He got 80 strike outs and only allowed 6 walks and 1 home run. He also got a 14.0 SO/9 which was “the highest rate for pitchers with at least 50 innings in the Pioneer League since Sid Fernandez in 1981.” [Source]
“He has two very good pitches with a fastball that works 92-95 MPH and touches 98 as a lefty and a strong slider in the low to mid 80’s.” [Source] I can’t wait to see what this kid does in 2012.
