Cingrani struck out two batters over a scoreless inning for his ninth hold of the season in Saturday's 5-3 win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani needed just seven pitches (all strikes) to retire the side in dominating fashion. The southpaw has produced a 0.90 ERA with 14 strikeouts through 12 September appearances, and he now owns a 2.79 ERA with five holds since joining the Dodgers on July 31. The 28-year-old will be under club control next season, and his strong showing in Los Angeles has likely secured him a spot in the bullpen.

Cingrani struck out two batters in a clean inning Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani has pitched well since joining the Dodgers, posting a 2.45 ERA with 10 strikeouts and three holds in eight appearances. It is certainly a small sample size, but it seems that pitching his home games in cavernous Dodger Stadium as opposed to the bandbox in Cincinnati has done wonders for the veteran southpaw.

Cingrani struck out both of the batters he faced on his way to his first hold with the Dodgers in Thursday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw has now turned in two clean appearances with four strikeouts since his ugly debut with his new club (three earned runs) on Aug. 3. He is currently competing with Tony Watson -- who is experiencing his own struggles in Dodger blue -- for the right to serve as the club's top left-handed option out of the bullpen. Until he earns manager Dave Roberts' trust to work late innings, Cingrani and his 5.88 ERA remains a fringe fantasy option in holds leagues.

The Reds agreed to trade Cingrani to the Dodgers on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Los Angeles acquired two lefties in Cingrani and Tony Watson in the final hour leading up to the trade deadline. Cingrani enjoyed a surprising amount of success as a starter in 2013 after breaking into the majors, but his heavy reliance on the fastball quickly caught up to him. While he's held lefties to a .219/.305/.407 line for his career, Cingrani has struggled out of the bullpen over the past several seasons and has been hit hard by same-handed hitters this year (.293/.326/.829).

Cingrani has given up 10 runs in his last 6.2 innings pitched.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a disastrous couple of weeks for Cingrani, who has given up at least one run in each of his last five outings and six of his last seven. After starting the season as the top left-handed reliever in Cincinnati, he has since lost that spot to Wandy Peralta, a title he won't be reclaiming anytime soon unless he can find a rhythm and break out of this slump.

Cingrani has given up three runs with nine strikeouts over 9.2 innings since coming off the disabled list in early June.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old has already given up three home runs since his return on June 6, but has kept opponents off the board otherwise. Cingrani is likely the top left-hander in the Reds' bullpen, but has held right-handed hitters to a .226/.273/.387 slash line and is only rarely utilized as a left-handed specialist.

Cingrani (oblique) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw has been out since late April due to a oblique injury, but he's finally ready for a return to the Reds' relief corps after a few rehab appearances. He'll resume his spot as one of the top lefties in Cincinnati's bullpen, replacing Lisalverto Bonilla on the active roster.

Cingrani (oblique) threw a scoreless inning with a walk for Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bryan Price said he anticipates at least one more rehab outing before the team decides whether to activate him form the DL, but a return appears to be on the horizon. The southpaw had impressed through five appearances with the Reds before being sidelined, posting a 1.93 ERA over 4.2 innings out of the bullpen, so expect him to return to a major relief role once he gets healthy.

Cingrani (oblique) threw a scoreless inning in a rehab outing with Low-A Dayton on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani needed 24 pitches (13 strikes) to get through his first rehab appearance, ceding one walk and no hits. The lefty has been sidelined for more than a month with the oblique issue, so he'll likely need at least a couple more appearances in the minors before the Reds consider activating him.

Cingrani (oblique) will pitch in a rehab game Monday for High-A Dayton, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cingrani began the season in the Cincinnati bullpen, but a strained oblique paired with lingering soreness in the area has kept him on the shelf since mid-April. With a few successful bullpen sessions now under his belt, the left-hander will now be deployed in the minors, with a multiple game rehab schedule likely on tap.
