The Cincinnati Reds lost another young arm to the DL on Thursday, when the team placed lefty starter Tony Cingrani on the 15-day disabled list.

Cingrani starred for the Reds in 2013, his rookie season, posting a 2.92 ERA over 104.2 innings while striking out 10.3 batters per nine innings. He continued his good work at the start of this year, with a 3.34 ERA in his first 32.1 innings of work. Now he heads to the DL with mild shoulder tendinitis.

Cingrani joins teammate Aroldis Chapman on the disabled list. Chapman, who suffered a concussion and multiple fractures in his face after being struck by a line drive in a March 19 spring training game, is expected back in seven to ten days. Cincinnati recalled relief pitcher Curtis Partch to fill Cingrani's roster spot.
