Dodgers’ left-hander Tony Cingrani will miss the rest of the season and underwent successful surgery to repair his shoulder.

Labrums are never good, especially when considering that Cingrani has a long list of injuries he has suffered in his professional career.

Cingrani, 29, was on his way back from a shoulder injury and was rehabbing for Triple-A Oklahoma City when he experienced a setback of the shoulder that ultimately required a season-ending procedure.

Acquired by the Dodgers from the Cincinnati Reds at the 2017 trade deadline, Cingrani has quite impressive — he sports a 2.11 FIP, 1.10 WHIP, and an absurd 37.2 K% in Dodger blue. If Cingrani qualified with his innings count, he would have the 8th-highest K% in baseball since the start of 2017. The names ahead of him include the likes of Craig Kimbrel, Aroldis Chapman, and Josh Hader — some pretty impressive names.

Cingrani is a huge loss as the Dodgers bullpen continues to be the primary factor the club loses games.
