Cingrani to stick around

I’ll have more on this in my notebook for later but it looks like LHP Tony Cingrani will remain in the big leagues for the time being. Cingrani will have a bullpen role but Reds manager Dusty Baker was cagey when asked how he might use him.

“He’s going to stay here,” Baker said. “We’ll just have to see. I haven’t told him exactly yet.”

It seems like Cingrani could fill multiple spots, depending on the situation. Obviously, he can work long relief but he might be of use in late-inning situations. He’s been a closer in college at Rice and he worked out of the bullpen last year as a September call-up.

“He fills what we need,” Baker said. “We need a power arm in the bullpen, and a left-hander.”

More from Cingrani and what’s up with Johnny Cueto in the notebook later…Check it out.
