Rasiel Iglesias And Tony Cingrani Prepare For Return.

Rasiel Iglesias is scheduled to pitch two innings in a rehab stint with Triple A Louisville.

Iglesias, a member of the Reds' "Kiddie Corp" of rookie starters has been on the shelf since June 5 with a strained left oblique.

“I’m guessing Iglesias will pitch a couple of innings and somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 pitches. That first one is just checking to make sure everything’s OK. I think he’s fine. He hasn’t had any recurring since he started throwing. He’s been throwing for a while. Now more than anything it’s about building up the resiliency. It’s going to take 2-3 outings to get him up to 90 pitches<" Bryan Price said.

Tony Cingrani has been nursing a strained left shoulder since June 15.  He is scheduled to go on a rehab assignment on Saturday also with Louisville.

"He’s scheduled for a bullpen today in preparation for that game on Saturday," Price said. "With Tony, it’s still a day-to-day. He’s been throwing a lot, but he has to be reintroduced to the mound. The bullpens have to go well before we can sign off on that Saturday outing.”
