Cingrani to stick around

I’ll have more on this in my notebook for Reds.com/MLB.com 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.
