Johnny Cueto returns to mound in Reds minor league game
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto returned to the mound for the first time since March 15 in a minor league game on Friday.
Cueto gave up two runs on five hits in five innings. He struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Cueto threw 60 pitches, including 47 strikes.
"I thought I was going to be a little wild and stuff like that, but no, everything felt pretty good," Cueto said, per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon. "I was trying to throw the ball down and I was effective. So I was very pleased with my start."
Cueto left the team in mid-March to return home to the Dominican Republic, after his mother needed open heart surgery. He returned after the operation.
"He threw all of his pitches for strikes, a lot of balls were in play on the ground," manager Bryan Price said. "I thought he threw very well, especially after a fairly extended layoff from facing hitters."
Reds' Johnny Cueto slated to start vs. minor leaguers Friday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto is scheduled to make a start Friday night against a Dodgers' minor-league squad, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Cueto was away from the team for a week while he returned to the Dominican Republic for a family medical situation. He returned Thursday, and appears on track to pitch on Opening Day.
Reds SP Johnny Cueto back in camp, still on track for opener
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto was back in camp and resumed workouts Thursday, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Cueto was away from the team for a week while he returned to the Dominican Republic for a family medical situation.
Reds manager Bryan Price is not expecting Cueto's absence to keep the right-hander from starting Opening Day.
"We'll get a look at him today and hopefully he'll pitch here in the next couple of days," Price said.
Reds SP Johnny Cueto expected back Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto has been away from the team attending to a family matter in the Dominican Republic, but he's expected to rejoin his team Wednesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Cueto has surrendered three runs in nine innings this spring. Manager Bryan Price said Wednesday that he believes Cueto still has enough time to get ready to pitch on Opening Day.
Reds SP Johnny Cueto expected back in camp next week
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Reds manager Bryan Price said Saturday he expects starting pitcher Johnny Cueto to be back in camp next week, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Cueto left the team Friday to attend to a family matter in the Dominican Republic.
"We did some Facetiming with him [Friday] from the hospital," Price said, per MLB.com. "It's one of those day-to-day things but we hope to see him by early next week. Fortunately, he lives about 30 minutes from the [Dominican] complex, so he's able to get some regular throwing, running, shoulder exercises -- all the stuff that he would be doing here outside of pitching in games.
"When he comes back, we may just slide him into a minor-league game so we can get his pitch count where it needs to before Opening Day. Then we can use the last start just as a tuneup. That's probably what we're targeting when he returns."
Cueto is on track to make his fourth straight Opening Day start.
"At this point in time, we're thinking that he will be back and have two more starts to be ready for Opening Day," Price said. "Hopefully everything is taken care of at home by then and he won't have to make any return trips."
|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.
