When Johnny Cueto went on the DL this week, the Reds announced they would bring up rookie Tony Cingrani to his spot in the rotation.  Tony had some success at the end of last season, a got a small taste of what pitching in the majors is like.  His minor league track record is spectacular, and it appears he could be the next “big” thing.  The question is as a fantasy manager, should you invest in him?  Depending on the format of your league, and your current place in your standings, yes.  I was out bid for him in two leagues, Tout Wars and FSTA.  I was able to pick him up in two other leagues, starting him in one and stashing him on the reserves in the other.  I have no doubt his start on Wednesday against the pitiful Marlins line-up should go very well, and the hype will start.  Just remember, it was the Marlins.  And if all goes well, he should have a 2 start week the following week, at home against the Cubs and at Washington.  Good match-ups.  So if you need a little pitching help, go for him.  But in my league where my pitching is fine so far, and I didn’t want to take the risk of having him in place for 3 months (expected time of Greinke) without being able to move him, I went with Justin Masterson, who has accomplished something already this year.  In my league where I can flip pitchers every week if I want, Cingrani was my choice.  The lesson to be learned is you have to examine your situation before making a decision that could have a lasting effect.
