Well, Tony Cingrani’s audition is over and it might be the end of what was a great start to his major league starts. As for who gets the demotion, it will go to Cingrani, he has to work on a secondary pitch, can’t throw the fastball over 80% of the time. I have the predictions and results all in one blog post for the next four days.
