Returning Left handed Reliever:  TONY CINGRANI

Cingrani came over at a deadline trade that has made the front office look brilliant thus far.  With the Dodgers, Cingrani pitched 19.1 innings across 22 games, and posted a 2.79 ERA, with an outstanding 1.08 WHIP.  Cingrani has been used as a situational lefty, but can also go multiple innings if needed as he is also a converted starter.  Cingrani’s LI rating tells a different story, maybe an inconclusive one.  In his short Dodger career so far, Cingrani’s LI during his Dodger stint sat at .68.  Look for Cingrani to be tested early in the season, as the Dodgers will look for his workload and responsibility to increase.
