Reds' Price: Johnny Cueto might be back in rotation Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto played catch for about 20 minutes and up to distances about 100 feet on Wednesday. The right-hander underwent an MRI on Tuesday, which indicated no structural damage in his elbow.
"He felt fine. He threw comfortably," Reds head trainer Paul Lessard said. "He's still a little sore from the MRI injection, but other than that, he felt very good. He wasn't really holding back and was throwing pretty firm."
If all goes well Wednesday, Cueto could throw in the bullpen Friday, per MLB.com. If he has no setbacks by Saturday, then Cueto could rejoin the rotation Sunday against the Nationals, manager Bryan Price said.
"He typically throws [in the bullpen] two days before a start. So if he were to start on Sunday, he would throw a bullpen on Friday," Price said. "He would have to get through the bullpen and see how he felt on Saturday before we consider Sunday as an option."
Cueto was scratched from his start Sunday against the Indians due to right elbow stiffness. He is 1-2 with a 4.45 ERA in four May starts.
Agent: MRI reveals no structural damage for Reds SP Johnny Cueto
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto appears to have avoided a significant injury, according to his agent per The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Cueto received an MRI on Tuesday as a precaution to look into elbow stiffness that kept him from making his latest start on Sunday. Manager Bryan Price didn't expect him to miss more than one start, but Cueto wanted to get a second opinion.
"I had the gut feeling that everything was going to be OK; I never thought it was going to be different," Cueto said via translator Tomas Vera to MLB.com. "But thank God after the test, everything came back good, like I thought it was going to be."
Cueto said he feels good and plans to play catch on Wednesday, according to the report.
"As he throws, if he's pain-free and the stiffness is out, I think it makes sense that we would follow that with a bullpen [session]," Price said. "If everything went well with that, we would in turn slot him in the rotation."
Cueto is 3-4 with a 3.03 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings of work this season.
Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto expected to miss just one start
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto is expected to miss just one start with right elbow stiffness, manager Bryan Price said on Monday per The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Cueto was examined further on Monday after missing his scheduled start on Sunday against the Indians. It was reported to be worse than first anticipated, but Price believes he will be back this week. Cincinnati's ace is 3-4 with a 3.03 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings of work this season.
Report: Elbow of Reds SP Johnny Cueto still not right Monday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Concern is growing that the right elbow ailment plaguing Reds ace Johnny Cueto is worse that first anticipated, per Associated Press.
Cueto is having the elbow examined Monday after missing his Sunday start in Cleveland with stiffness. Though he exclaimed Sunday that he was not worred about it, the elbow was still not feeling right Monday.
The loss of Cueto for any significant period would be devastating for a Cincinnati team on an eight-game losing streak. He has eight quality starts in nine outings and a 3.03 ERA.
Reds SP Johnny Cueto out Sunday with elbow stiffness
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto will miss his scheduled start against the Indians on Sunday, per August Fagerstrom of MLB.com.
Cueto has elbow stiffness, and though he believes he could have pitched on Sunday he will sit out because he does not feel 100 percent. He said he is not "worried" and thinks this will be the only outing he'll miss.
Cueto (3-4) has a 3.03 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 65.1 innings this 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.
