MLB News: On Thursday the Cincinnati Reds recalled reliver Tony Cingrani from Triple-A Louisville, swapping out Justin Freeman for him. Cingrani gets his first major league start Thursday night after dominating Triple-A talent early on this year. Freeman, who was called up a few days ago had enough time to enjoy a quick cup of coffee and nothing else.
Fantasy Ramifications: Not that these numbers will translate into the majors, but in Triple-A Louisville Cingrani pitched almost fifteen innings, with a 26:2, strikeouts:walk ratio. He is worth the quick grab and stashing him on your bench in hopes of him enjoying continued success.
