|Johnny Cueto shakes off rust in first start |

(2/27/14) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto made his spring debut Thursday against the Indians, in the team's second exhibition game.
Cueto had no trouble getting through two innings of work, a good sign after a lat injury bothered him for much of last season. He held the Indians off the scoreboard in his two innings, pitching around a pair of walks and a double with two strikeouts.
Assuming he is healthy, Cueto's spot in the rotation is not in doubt. He was effective when healthy a year ago, posting a 2.82 ERA in 60 2/3 innings over 11 starts.
|Johnny Cueto set to start Thursday |

(2/26/14) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto will start the team's second Cactus League game Thursday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Cueto said his lat strain is behind him coming into camp and that he feels healthy.
"He's not (Jonathan) Broxton or (Mat) Latos, who are coming off of surgeries of that nature, it's not the same," manager Bryan Price said. "He came into camp healthy, so we're all optimistic he'll have a healthy season and pitch all year. Because he's had some setbacks and his history here with the Reds, there's certainly going to be a collective sigh of relief when we get through spring training and he's locked in and doing what he does, for sure."
Cueto made just 11 starts last year due to injury but impressed when he did take the mound, going 5-2 with a 2.82 ERA and 51:18 K:BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings.
|In the end, Johnny Cueto's 2013 was nothing more than a lost season, but all parties involved tried their hardest to keep it from becoming that. He had not just one, not just two, but three stints on the DL for the same injury to his lat -- a muscle beneath the shoulder. The last one went on for three months just to be extra sure it was behind him, and he returned to make three starts, one in the playoffs, without incident (except for that one with a stadium full of Pirates fans chanting his name). The good news is in between the three DL stints, Cueto was as effective as ever, allowing fewer hits per nine innings than at any other point in his career. The bad news is he's now most assuredly an injury risk, the most compelling evidence coming after his first ever 200-inning season. If you draft Cueto, you can expect an excellent ERA and WHIP and probably a favorable winning percentage, but between the injury risk and so-so strikeout rate, he belongs outside the top 30 at starting pitcher.
