Cingrani has come pretty close to abandoning his slider since the beginning of June, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports, throwing it just 3.7 percent of the time.

EDGE Analysis

In its place, Cingrani instead is throwing a splitter that's roughly five mph slower than his fastball, but he's throwing that just five percent of the time. Otherwise he's mostly just throwing his fastball, with good results - a 2.08 ERA over his last 20 appearances, beginning June 1.

The 26-year-old bounced back with his second straight scoreless outing after blowing yet another save, his fifth this season, earlier in the week against the Cardinals.

Cingrani notched his fifth save with a clean inning in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old southpaw preserved the rousing victory for the Reds, which came on the strength of a three-run blast by Adam Duvall in the eighth inning. Cingrani now has back-to-back scoreless outings, after being touched up for three earned runs in less than an inning against the Rockies on May 30. He's been an adventure in the late innings, blowing three of four save opportunities at one point in May, but also amassing six holds in addition to his five saves.
