The Reds called up Tony Cingrani to start on Thursday.

Cingrani is an interesting guy. This season he's faced 48 minor league hitters. He struck out 26 of them. That's over 50%. That doesn't happen often.

Last year Cingrani faced 22 major league hitters and K'd 9 of them. That's 40%. That also doesn't happen often.

Seeing those numbers one might expect Cingrani to be a flame thrower. He does throw a lot of fastballs. About 80% of his pitches are fastballs. But, those fastballs typically end up in the low 90's.

Projections available on FanGraphs have Cingrani pitching 64 innings with a K per inning and giving up 3.82 runs per 9. That's worth 0.6 WAR or 1.8 WAR per 180 IP.

It'll be interesting to see how it goes for Cingrani.

The Braves lost today, breaking their ten game winning streak, going down to KC, 1-0.

Collectively in 2013 the Braves five starters are 8-1 with a 1.99 ERA. They have allowed just 84 base runners in 81 innings and are striking out 6.75 batters for each walk they issue.

And when they have run out of gas, the bullpen has taken over and pitched 36 2/3 innings, allowing 35 baserunners, striking out 5.89 batters per walk and posting a 1.47 ERA. In 17 1/3 combined innings, Kimbrel, Vavaro and Gearrin have yet to yield a run.

The Braves overall team ERA of 1.83 leads all MLB by a good margin. Boston is second at 2.64. The next best NL team is LA at 3.14.

Speaking of pitching,

Max Scherzer and King Felix are putting up a clinic.
8 combined innings, 2 hits, 13 K's, 0 walks.

28 batters faced. 24 pitches thrown out of the strike zone

Saturday. Making lemonade out of lemons. I lost the bidding war. I pay mlb.tv to watch all games, but Fox pays more to block me, so I get to hear the local radio announcers. Today its Jerry Howarth and Jack Morris doing the Blue Jays.

The NY Yankees are paying 83.8 million in collective salary this season to four players currently on the DL. (Arod, Jeter, Teixiera and Granderson)

There are nine teams which are paying less than that for their entire rosters. (KC, Min, Col, SD, Oak, Pit, TB & Houston.) In the case of the Astros, the 83.8 million is 3.5 times the size of their full roster payroll. For that matter Arod alone out earns the Houston roster.

The highest paid Marlin this season is Ricky Nolasco at $11,500,000. The next in line is Placido Polanco at 2,750,000.
