Cingrani (oblique) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw has been out since late April due to a oblique injury, but he's finally ready for a return to the Reds' relief corps after a few rehab appearances. He'll resume his spot as one of the top lefties in Cincinnati's bullpen, replacing Lisalverto Bonilla on the active roster.

Cingrani (oblique) threw a scoreless inning with a walk for Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bryan Price said he anticipates at least one more rehab outing before the team decides whether to activate him form the DL, but a return appears to be on the horizon. The southpaw had impressed through five appearances with the Reds before being sidelined, posting a 1.93 ERA over 4.2 innings out of the bullpen, so expect him to return to a major relief role once he gets healthy.

Cingrani (oblique) threw a scoreless inning in a rehab outing with Low-A Dayton on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani needed 24 pitches (13 strikes) to get through his first rehab appearance, ceding one walk and no hits. The lefty has been sidelined for more than a month with the oblique issue, so he'll likely need at least a couple more appearances in the minors before the Reds consider activating him.

Cingrani (oblique) will pitch in a rehab game Monday for High-A Dayton, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani began the season in the Cincinnati bullpen, but a strained oblique paired with lingering soreness in the area has kept him on the shelf since mid-April. With a few successful bullpen sessions now under his belt, the left-hander will now be deployed in the minors, with a multiple game rehab schedule likely on tap.

Cingrani (oblique) had a scheduled bullpen session pushed back Friday after he had some lingering soreness from a previous throwing session, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds were careful to say that Cingrani didn't have a setback, but rather a delay. "He doesn't have any real pain. He has kind of a little bit of achiness in the oblique," manager Bryan Price said. "No setback. Just kind of a part of the rehab." He doesn't have a set return date yet.

Cingrani (oblique) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, his first such session since going on the DL on April 21, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani might be close to beginning a rehab assignment - the Reds will determine that path shortly. "He threw a 15-pitch bullpen with no restriction," manager Bryan Price said. "The ball came out of his hand good. He didn't have any issues. So he'll progress and throw another bullpen on Friday."

Cingrani (oblique) has started his throwing program, but he's still feeling some soreness and as a result isn't yet throwing from a mound, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani's progress has been purposefully slow given the setbacks other Reds have had while recovering from their oblique injuries. "He is able to maintain his arm strength and range of motion," manager Bryan Price said. "However, not to the point yet where we would clear him to get up on the mound and start throwing [bullpen sessions]. We really want to focus on making sure the soreness is gone."

Cingrani (strained oblique) will begin a throwing program in the next few days, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds took extra precautions to make sure that Cingrani did not start throwing too soon and aggravate the injury. "That's one of the reason he didn't start throwing exactly when we anticipated he would be able to, to avoid any chance of that," manager Bryan Price said. "So we're doing everything we can to keep this particular injury from going and getting really sideways on us and being a long rehab."

Cingrani (oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds have yet to make a corresponding move to replace Cingrani, but they were prompt in placing the lefty on the disabled list after Thursday's series finale. Cingrani allowed one hit in a scoreless frame Tuesday but did not appear in the final two games of the series. Wandy Peralta will be one of the Reds' main left-handers out of the bullpen unless they bring up another arm from Triple-A or continue to use Cody Reed as a reliever.

Cingrani allowed a double and a home run over 0.2 innings during Saturday's win over Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

Ryan Braun squared up Cingrani for a double and Eric Thames left the yard with his second bomb of the afternoon, so it wasn't like Cingrani was hit around by slap hitters. Additionally, the run was the first he's allowed of the season. Still, Cingrani appears to be out of the closer competition at this point, and Saturday's appearance was just his fourth of the campaign.
