Tony Cingrani is having arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder, and it’s probably the end of his 2019 season.

Earlier in the week it was reported that Tony Cingrani was officially in shut down mode, while he had an additional MRI to re-evaluate his shoulder. Today’s news probably doesn’t come as a big surprise, but it certainly comes as a blow anyway. Dave Roberts is a consummate optimist, so his quote means Cingrani is most certainly done.

The left hander hasn’t thrown a pitch for the Dodgers this season. He owns a 3.86 ERA along with a 2.11 FIP in 52 appearances with the team since 2017.

Impact

As recent as last night, the bullpen woes are clear. Julio Urias is considered one of the best arms out of the bullpen, and he completely unraveled the Dodgers lead in two short batters. The Dodgers bullpen is in disarray. The certainty of Cingrani’s absence only adds icing to a bad cake. Look for the Dodgers front office to make moves to bolster the bullpen this summer. If they don’t, it could be rough down the road.
