Today I wanted to look at two Louisville Bats top prospects, left hander Tony Cingrani and center fielder Billy Hamilton, both who have had to make changes to their games here in the month of May.

Ideally the Reds wanted him to go to Louisville and work on his offspeed pitches, but they also stated that they weren’t going to mandate him to throw any certain number of offspeed pitches. He has now made two starts with Louisville since returning. In those two starts he has thrown just 10 innings and has walked 9 batters while striking out 14.
