CINCINNATI -- Starting pitcher Tony Cingrani, who has been on Triple-A Louisville's disabled list since June 26 with a left shoulder strain, has yet to resume a throwing program and isn't being counted on to help the Reds again this season.

"At this point in time, I'm not anticipating him being back, simply because I don't think he would have enough time to get back and be able to help us in September," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Cingrani, who recently tried to throw but was shut down after he still felt an impingement, had a platelet-rich plasma injection to try and speed his healing. That meant he could not throw for at least a week afterward. There is a possibility he will undergo a second injection, which would mean another week of inactivity.

Louisville's season ends on Sept. 1, leaving Cingrani no place to get into games before any potential callup.
