5 Reasons Reds Phenom Tony Cingrani Can Already Be MLB Star in 2013

He's no Johnny Cueto, but Cincinnati Reds starter Tony Cingrani looks like he has the makings of a star after his first two MLB starts.

When Cueto went down with an injury, Cingrani was the easy choice to call up. The southpaw dominated the minors last year. 

It's still way too early to declare him a star, but he has been outstanding through two starts with the club. If he keeps pitching this way, he's going to put a lot of pressure on Mike Leake to keep his hot streak up.

Reds fans may have panicked after Cueto got injured. Cingrani has done enough to put those worries aside and let Cueto take his time recovering from his injury.

What makes Cingrani a rising star?
