The stove isn’t quite hot yet for the Los Angeles Dodgers but they aren’t standing pat completely.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the team avoided arbitration and agreed to a one-year, $2.65M deal with Tony Cingrani.

The left-hander had a tough season, dealing with injuries that limited him to just 30 games. He finished with a 4.76 ERA, 2.32 FIP, and 36 strikeouts in 22.2 innings pitched. Cingrani came into the season as a candidate to be a setup man for Kenley Jansen but was derailed by a ‘dead arm’, left shoulder inflammation and a rotator cuff strain.

Despite the rough year, the 29-year-old gets a slight raise from the $2.3M he made in 2018. Cingrani figures to be counted on a key piece to the bullpen once again, assuming he’s healthy.
