Cingrani confident in quick return from back strain

ST. LOUIS -- Reds lefty starter Tony Cingrani, who was placed on the disabled list Sunday with a lower back strain, threw on the field Wednesday. Cingrani has yet to work off of a mound, but reports no recent issues.

"Everything is going well. It feels good," Cingrani said.

The Reds have been optimistic that Cingrani will miss only two starts and can be back on Sept. 5 to pitch against the Cardinals at Great American Ball Park.

"I'll be ready," Cingrani said.
