Reds' Tony Cingrani: Working on adding breaking pitch
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cingrani is working on another pitch, a cut fastball, to add to his repertoire in 2017, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "It's just another way to get guys out," Cingrani said. "It gets hitters off thinking it's just going to be a fastball. I'm still trying to work on how I want that ball to move, but it's good and feels comfortable."

The southpaw has relied on his mid 90s four-seam fastball heavily throughout his career, throwing it more than 87 percent of the time in 2016. He is working on a breaking pitch in order to mix things up and keep batters guessing. He led the Reds with 17 saves while posting a 4.14 ERA in 65 appearances last season, although he'll likely see fewer save opportunities in 2017 as the Reds are contemplating a four-man closer committee.

Reds' Tony Cingrani: Potential saves in Reds committee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cingrani could get a few saves in 2017, with the team contemplating a four-man closer committee.

Judging from manager Bryan Price's quote, however, Cingrani is the fourth option, based on the possible game situation. "I would really like to see this particular game plan we have in place work out," Price said on Sunday. "We want to look at the end of the year and we see Storen and Iglesias and Lorenzen, in particular, with some saves. That may mean Cingrani as well, if he's the best guy we have for that situation in the ninth inning."

Reds' Tony Cingrani: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cingrani agreed to a one-year, $1.825 million contract with the Reds on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

He was one of the worst regular closers in baseball throughout much of the year, posting a 4.14 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and six blown saves. The 27-year-old gave way to Raisel Iglesias more down the stretch, and with Drew Storen now on the team, it's looking like Cingrani may be confined primarily to a setup role to begin 2017.

Reds' Tony Cingrani: May be part of closer committee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cingrani may begin 2017 as part of a closer committee, MLB.com reports. "...I do think the game is looking at finding more than one person who is comfortable throwing in the ninth inning, more than one person who is capable of throwing multiple innings in a setup role," manager Bryan Price said.

Cingrani led the Reds with 17 saves in 2016, but he gave way to Raisel Iglesias quite a bit down the stretch with Price deploying Cingrani occasionally earlier in games depending on the matchups. Iglesias was used for multiple innings 17 times (32 appearances), and it sounds like Price wants to keep fluid back-end roles, using his best relievers in the highest-leverage situations, regardless of the inning, and sometimes for multiple frames. With Michael Lorenzen also in the back-end mix, the Reds' closer situation is murky as we approach spring training -- perhaps the most unappealing in baseball for fantasy purposes.

Reds' Tony Cingrani: Puts down Rangers for 16th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cingrani worked around a pair of walks to record his 16th save Tuesday against the Rangers.

It hasn't always been pretty, but Cingrani has now converted 11 straight save opportunities dating back to early June. The righty has held opponents scoreless in 11 of his last 12 appearances, but an implosion on Aug. 8 (five runs in 0.2 innings) still has Cingrani's ERA skewed to appear unimpressive at 3.54.
