It was reported just two days ago that Tony Cingrani felt pain in his most recent outing. Today, he was seen in the Dodgers clubhouse. Turns out there’s a reason for that.

Setback Shoulder

It’s a big loss for the Dodgers that Tony Cingrani’s rehab is going backwards. It’s also a sad setback for Tony himself. The Dodgers bullpen is in severe need of another lefty reliever. If he is getting his shoulder completely reevaluated, consequently that a bad sign.

Tony Cingrani was a valuable part of the Dodgers bullpen in 2017 and 2018, but injuries kept him from logging a lot of innings. With Caleb Ferguson and Scott Alexander having been largely ineffective, this leaves the Dodgers with a lot of uncertainty in the lefty relief department.
