On Thursday, the Reds placed lefty starter Tony Cingrani on the 15-day disabled list because of mild shoulder tendinitis. Reliever Curtis Partch has been recalled to take Cingrani's spot on the active roster. 

Cingrani also dealt with shoulder soreness in May of last year, but that didn't require a roster move. Of course, to hear Cingrani tell it, he didn't need to go on the DL this time around, either ... 

What likely helped the Reds make the decision is that, thanks to some looming off days, they won't need a fifth starter for almost three weeks. 

Cingrani, 24, has pitched to a 3.34 ERA and 1.88 K/BB ratio in six starts this season. For his career, he owns an ERA+ of 128 across 32 career games, 24 of which have been starts.
