Pioneer League Top Prospects

Baseball America's 2011 Pioneer League Top 20 Prospects list came out today. Number 8 on the list is Tony Cingrani.

The full scouting reports are behind a paywall, but there's a brief summary here.

The fireballing left-hander went 3-2 with a 1.75 earned run average. In 51 innings and 13 starts, the former Rice Owl allowed just 35 hits, struck out 80 and walked six while holding foes to a .190 batting average. Cingrani led the league in ERA, K/9 (14.0), K/BB (13.3:1), opponents batting average and WHIP (0.80). BA's Matt Eddy wrote that he's impressed with Cingrani's 92-94 mph fastball, which is aided by deception in the hurler's delivery. Eddy wrote that Cingrani's changeup also is deceptive and that his slider has improved greatly during his first pro season.
