    • Finnegan threw six shutout innings against the Padres on Friday and credited using his changeup more often as part of the reason for the result, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He struck out five while allowing four hits and three walks. Before Friday's start, Finnegan changed the grip on his changeup, and that eliminated the cutting action that he had been getting on the pitch. In the last month prior to Friday, he had reduced his changeup usage to 4 percent, but it was back up to 16.7 percent Friday.

    • Finnegan (5-8) allowed six runs on seven hits (including three home runs) and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out three, to take the loss as the Reds fell 9-8 to the Diamondbacks. He's now served up at least one homer in six straight starts and 22 in 111.1 innings on the season, tying him with Max Scherzer for the NL lead in that ignominious category. Finnegan's next start could offer some relief from the barrage however, as he'll take the mound Friday in pitcher-friendly Petco Park.

    • Finnegan (4-7) allowed five runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four over five innings to earn the win Tuesday at the Cubs. Finnegan was staked to a five-run lead before giving up three homers in the third inning to make the game close, but the bullpen held on to get him his fourth win of the year. He's now failed to post a quality start in three of his last four outings to move his ERA from 3.61 to 4.71. This was his last scheduled start before the All-Star break.

    • Finnegan (3-7) was annihilated Thursday by the Nationals. He lasted just 2.1 innings, allowing eight runs, five hits and five walks while striking out two in the loss. By far, this was Finnegan's worst performance of the season. He had managed to last at least four innings in all of his previous 16 outings, and never gave up more than five runs before running into the Nationals on Thursday. The 23-year-old southpaw was enjoying a nice June, entering the game with a 3.19 ERA in his previous five starts this month. Things won't get any easier for Finnegan as he draws the Cubs on Tuesday for his next start.
