Cingrani's Big League Debut

Tony Cingrani got finally got his Major League debut today. It was because Reds ace Johnny Cueto was roughed up and pulled early, but still, a lot of fans were excited to see him.

I guess Cingrani's considered the long man, since he was a starter in AA. He pitched three innings after Cueto got the hook after four.

Cingrani looked very promising, if a tad raw. He struck out five, walked none, and gave up just one hit. Unfortunately, the hit was a home run. Cingrani now has a 3.00 ERA.

I think he could really be something one day, but currently, he's a little too reliant on his fastball. I'm guessing he'll end up in AAA next year, at least to start the season.
