Dodgers News: Tony Cingrani Experiences Rehab Setback

Cingrani has been on the IL all season, and it looks like that will continue.

Tony Cingrani’s rehab assignment has been put on hold for the time being. He was scheduled to return to the big league club within the next week.

Shoulder pain is not something you want to hear as a return was in fact imminent for Cingrani.

Cingrani, 29, has only managed just over 60 innings since 2017 as a result of various injuries. In 2018, Cingrani was great, posting a 2.32 FIP and 3.90 DRA in 22 2/3 innings, while posting one of the highest strikeout rates in baseball (37.9%).

Tony Cingrani holds a career 4.01 ERA in 334 2/3 career innings.

The Dodgers bullpen could use Cingrani’s services as soon as possible as the lefties within it have not performed up to expectations, namely Scott Alexander and Caleb Ferguson.

Let us hope that the exit from the game along with the MRI are just precautionary moves and that we see Cingrani on the bump for the Dodgers in June.
