Cingrani is scheduled to throw in front of multiple teams in a Feb. 1 showcase in Arizona, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Cingrani hasn't pitched at the MLB level since 2018 after having most of his past two seasons wiped out while he recovered from shoulder surgery. Considering he underwent the arthroscopic procedure in June 2019, the 31-year-old has likely been fully healthy for a while, but he'll still have to prove that his surgery hasn't compromised his velocity or command. Since making a full-time transition to relief duty in 2015, Cingrani has posted a 4.56 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 13.8 K-BB% across 177 appearances over parts of four seasons.
Cingrani (shoulder) has been assigned to High-A Rancho Cucamonga for a rehab assignment, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The left-hander has been out all season due to a recurring shoulder injury, but he threw a bullpen session last week and will now begin his minor-league rehab work. Cingrani posted a 4.76 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP to go along with 36 strikeouts over 22.2 innings in 30 games for the Dodgers last season.
Cingrani (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday and is on track to begin a rehab assignment next week, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Cingrani noted that Friday is the best he's felt since going on the injured list, which is positive news for the Dodgers. He'll likely need at least a few rehab outings before rejoining the big-league club.
Cingrani (shoulder) has been pain-free while throwing off flat ground from 120 feet at extended spring training in recent days, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Dodgers shut down Cingrani for two weeks late in the spring after he was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement, and the respite has apparently proved effective. Cingrani should be ready to throw a bullpen session at some point this week and remains on track to return from the 10-day injured list at some point in the back half of April.
The Dodgers placed Cingrani (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Cingrani has yet to resume throwing since being shut down since mid-March with left shoulder soreness and appears set to miss more than the minimum 10 days. His absence leaves Scott Alexander as the top left-handed option out of the bullpen for Los Angeles.
