Reds' Price on Johnny Cueto: 'He's special'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) Reds manager Bryan Price said the instincts of Johnny Cueto on the mound are as good as any pitcher he's ever seen, highlighting his ability to make adjustments within a given at-bat, MLB.com reports.
"If there's anyone that I've ever been around that could simply go into a game and pitch it without any understanding of the lineup he was facing -- it'd be Johnny," Price said. "He cuts you up, spits you out. He's special."
Price also compared Cueto to Greg Maddux -- ""[Maddux's] ability to find that spot in the zone and the speed with which to induce that ground ball -- that's what I sense where Johnny has elevated himself" and Pedro Martinez -- "A lot [of similarities] -- enjoyment, they're so acute with their command, they're so precise."
Cueto finished second in the voting for NL Cy Young in 2014, going 20-9 with a 2.25 ERA and 242:65 K:BB ratio in 243 2/3 innings.
Reds' Cueto on extension talks: I'd like an extension before opener
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto expressed his desire to work out a new deal before opening day, reports the Associated Press.
"I want to stay here," Cueto said. "Honest, I'd like to have a contract before spring training ends. But all I can do is play. At this point, I just have to keep working hard and let them work it out."
Cueto is entering the final year of a five-year, $36.2 million deal. The Reds traded away starters Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon in the offseason, in an attempt to clear up some payroom moving forward. If both sides can't come to terms on an extension before opening day, Cueto could be traded at midseason or leave as a free agent afterward.
Cueto, 29. won a career-high 20 games in 2014. He posted a 2.25 ERA and 242:65 K:BB ratio over 243 2/3 innings last season.
Reds' Price hints at Johnny Cueto starting season opener
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Reds manager Bryan Price pretty much indicated Wednesday that Johnny Cueto will be the team's opening day starter, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Price said he wouldn't be "sticking (his) neck out" to say Cueto would start April 6 vs. Pittsburgh.
Cueto has started the last three openers for Cincinnati.
Report: Reds' goal is to lock Johnny Cueto up to extension
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/15/15) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto is willing to negotiate a new contract until opening day. It seems the Reds are on the same page with Cueto, with hopes of locking the right-hander up to a long-term extension.
The Boston Globe reports that reaching a new deal with Cueto is the goal for Cincinnati. However, if the Reds are unable to do so, it's possible the Reds look to trade Cueto by the July 31 deadline.
Cueto is entering the final year of a five-year, $36.2 million deal. He recorded a 2.25 ERA and 242:65 K:BB ratio over 243 2/3 innings in 2014.
Johnny Cueto's agent seeking long-term extension in offseason
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/23/14) Johnny Cueto's agent, Bryce Dixon, will give the Reds through the winter and spring to try to negotiate for a long-term deal, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. Cueto is seeking for a contract comparable to Jon Lester and Max Scherzer.
"He'll give it until Opening Day," Dixon said by phone. "Then he's going to be focused on the season and trying to do what he can for Cincinnati. If something happens, we're probably to keep it to this off-season. We're not going to be looking to do something this summer."
Cueto, who won a career-high 20 games in 2014, is in the final year of a five-year, $36.2 million contract. He posted a 2.25 ERA and 242:65 K:BB ratio over 243 2/3 innings last season.

|2014 summary: Johnny Cueto bounced back big after an injury-marred 2013 season. After making only 11 starts the prior year, Cueto tied for the major league lead with 34 starts, and he won a career-high 20 games and posted a career-low 2.25 ERA. Another personal best for Cueto was his strikeout rate, as he came close to notching a strikeout per inning (242 strikeouts in 243 2/3 innings). All of that made Cueto the top starting pitcher in Fantasy points and second only to Clayton Kershaw in standard Rotisserie value.|
Playing time status: Cueto will once again anchor the Reds' rotation and could be among the major league leaders in innings pitched.
2015 outlook: Don't be surprised if Cueto's strikeout rate regresses a bit, but it shouldn't prevent him from being a top 10 starting pitcher in Fantasy. Even with a more modest strikeout pace, he's proven to be superb at preventing runs and should be good for a mid-2.00s ERA.
