On Wednesday, the Dodgers made moves involving six players. One of those players, was Tony Cingrani, who will be hitting the disabled list.
To create room on the active roster, the Dodgers placed Tony Cingrani on the 10-day DL (left shoulder inflammation) and optioned Yimi García and Alex Verdugo to OKC.

On the year, Cingrani is 0-2 with an ERA of 5.79. Cingrani has been taking a beating, as of late. Over his last seven games, the lefty has allowed seven runs in 5.2 innings. For Cingrani, something definitely went wrong around the end of April. In 10 of his first 11 starts, he didn’t allow a single run. Since then, he’s allowed runs in three of his last seven games.
If there’s any bright side to his season so far, it’s his strikeout numbers. In just 14 innings, he has struck out 22 batters. Also notably, his WHIP sits at only 1.29, which considering his ERA, is pretty good.
Cingrani was a vital piece to the bullpen last year, and we’re all hoping he can figure everything out. As we’ve seen, when he’s on, he’s one of the tougher lefties coming out of the pen. Hopefully he can recover from his left shoulder issues, and become one of the more reliable pitchers to come in pitch late in the ballgame.
