Surprise Reds call-up is lefty Tony Cingrani from Double-A Pensacola

 

Everyone expected the Cincinnati Reds to call-up speedy infielder Billy Hamilton from Pensacola. But that is not going to happen.

But one of his teammates and one of the Reds’ other top prospect pitchers is coming to Cincinnati for September.

The surprise call-up is left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani from Double-A Pensacola. Cingrani was 10-4 with a 1.73 ERA in 26 games, including 25 starts, for Pensacola and Class A Bakersfield.

Cingrani will essentially be taking the place of lefty Bill Bray in the bullpen.

Bray has made eight rehab appearances for Triple-A Louisville. He allowed three runs and five hits over 1 2/3 innings on Saturday.

Reds manager Dusty Baker says Cingrani will be the  extra lefty in the bullpen, along with Sean Marshall and closer Aroldis Chapman. It also means  Bill Bray might not be back this season.  Bray has been on the disabled list with a back muscle strain since July 31.

Reds activate Bray from DL, sends Hoover to Triple-A Louisville

It has been two long months on the disabled list, but Cincinnati Reds left-handed reliever Bill Bray was finally activated before Friday’s series opener against the Minnesota Twins.

Bray was initially put on the DL due to a strained left groin, but back trouble caused him to stay awhile longer.

Bray returned following a six-game rehab assignment with Class A Dayton and Triple-A Louisville. In his four outings for Louisville, he gave up two runs and three hits with three walks and five strikeouts.

The bullpen had been performing so well without Bray, Nick Masset and Ryan Madson, that it was a tough call to send down anybody. To make room for Bray on the 25-man roster, the Reds optioned right-handed reliever J.J. Hoover to Triple-A Louisville. Hoover, a rookie,  performed well with a 3.00 ERA in 17 appearances with eight walks and 19 strikeouts over 18 innings.

The Reds will now how three lefty’s in the bullpen, Bray, Sean Marshall and Aroldis Chapman.

Bray, who is 29 years old, has a career mark of 13-12 with an ERA of 3.67 and 181 strikeouts. He has also played for the Washington Nationals. Bray has been with the Reds since 2006.

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is one of the most popular players on the team, along with Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs and Mike Leake.

Phillips has always been a fan favorite since coming over from the Cleveland Indians back in 2005 in a trade, but he really became even more popular when he started a Twitter account, regularly conversing with fans, allowing them to win prizes and letting them know what he is doing on and off the field.

The Reds management recognizing this and Phillips’ baseball talent, reached an agreement on a new six-year, $72.5 million contract on Tuesday.

The deal replaces the current one-year, $12.5 million deal and extends from the 2012 season to 2017.

Phillips was the Silver Slugger Award and Gold Glove in the National League in 2011.

With this current deal, the Reds have locked up the core of their team first baseman Joey Votto, right fielder Jay Bruce, lefty reliever Aroldis Chapman, ace starter Johnny Cueto and closer Sean Marshall.

Phillips currently is out of the lineup to let a hamstring strain heal.

Reds give Marshall 3-year extension

 

As we reported in a column on megasportsnews.com this morning, the Cincinnati Reds were trying to extend the contract of lefty set-up man Sean Marshall.

The deal was completed Monday afternoon as the Reds extended Marshall’s contract for three years and it allows him to be a starter or the closer if Ryan Madson leaves in the off-season.

They traded three players to the Chicago Cubs, Travis Wood, Ronald Torreyes and Dave Sappelt to get the left-hander in December. Marshall, who is 29, will be the set-up man for Madson this season.

Marshall was entering the final season on a two-year deal that would pay him $3.1 million in 2012.

Marshall in his career has 7 saves, 439 strikeouts and a won-loss record of 32-40.
