Reds' Johnny Cueto's free agency stock rising after red-hot start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto continues to enhance his free agency stock after a fast start to the 2015 season, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Cueto, who posted a career-best 2.25 ERA last season, is on pace for another breakout campaign. Although he's 1-2 through four starts, the 29-year-old right-hander owns a 1.86 ERA, a 0.82 WHIP, a 1.93 FIP and a 32:5 K:BB ratio over 29 innings pitched this season.

Cueto, who was unable to come to terms with a new extension before Opening Day, is believed to be seeking a contract worth around $200 million after Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer landed a $210 million contract this offseason.


Reds' Johnny Cueto allows one run in eight innings in first win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto earned a win Wednesday, surrendering just one earned run on five hits and two walks in eight innings while striking out seven in his team's 2-1 victory over the Brewers.

Cueto (1-2) threw a whopping 125 pitches in the win, making him the first pitcher this season to cross the 120-pitch plateau. He looked like he was headed for a no-decision before the Reds pushed across a run in the top of the ninth to put him in line for the win.

Cueto has posted just a 1.86 ERA and 32:5 K:BB ratio in 29 innings but Wednesday's win was just his first of the season. His next start will come in a rematch with the Brewers Monday.


Reds SP Johnny Cueto is now 0-2 on season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto fanned 10 batters during Friday's game against the Cardinals, but it was not enough as the Reds fell 6-1.

Cueto surrendered four runs on six hits over seven innings of work and he only walked one. Cueto received the loss for his work and is now 0-2 on the season.

It was his first outing of the season giving up more than one run, but he has pitched seven innings in each of his three starts this season. His ERA rose from 0.64 to 2.14.

His next start is expected to be Wednesday at Milwaukee.


Busch Stadium has not been a good venue for Reds ace Cueto


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Although he took the loss Saturday against the Cardinals, Reds ace Johnny Cueto pitched pretty well. He allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk in seven innings.

Cueto will get his chance to exact revenge against the Cardinals on Friday, as he takes the hill for his next start. However, the venue for this start is moving from the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati to Busch Stadium in St. Louis, where Cueto doesn't have a very good history.

The right-hander is 2-3 with a 5.80 ERA in nine career starts at St. Louis. Cueto lost in his only start at Busch Stadium in 2014, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks in five innings.


Reds' Johnny Cueto allows one earned run in loss Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto was stuck with a loss Saturday after surrendering two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out four in his team's 4-1 defeat against the Cardinals.

Cueto surrendered the unearned run in the second inning, while his first earned run of the season came on a fourth-inning home run by Matt Adams that put the Cardinals up for good. Cueto brings a 0.64 ERA and 14:2 K:BB ratio into a rematch with the Cardinals Friday.


Reds' Cueto might not have received offer before Opening Day deadline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Since the Reds were convinced they had little chance to sign starting pitcher Johnny Cueto to a contract extension before the season, it isn't certain they made an offer before Cueto's Opening Day deadline, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Cueto is believed to be seeking a contract worth around $200 million after Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer landed a $210 million contract this offseason.


Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto strikes out 10 in win Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto went seven strong innings Monday, allowing zero runs on four hits with 10 strikeouts in Cincinnati's 5-2 win over the Pirates Monday. 

Cueto was dominant throughout the game, not letting a runner past second base in his seven innings. The 10 strikeouts tie Cueto's career high for strikeouts on Opening Day and was two shy of the club record.

"Everything was low," Cueto said, with a trainer translating. "Everything went the way I wanted it to."

Cueto, however, finished with a no decision after reliever Kevin Gregg gave up a two-run home run to Andrew McCuthen in the eighth.

He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Cardinals.


Reds, pitcher Johnny Cueto not expected to agree to new deal


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Reds and pitcher Johnny Cueto are not expecting to reach an agreement on a contract extension before the beginning of the season Monday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Reds' Johnny Cueto strikes out seven but gives up three runs


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cueto went five innings and gave up three earned runs on three hits. One of those hits was a three-run double given up to Yasmany Tomas in the top of the fourth. Other than that one half-inning, Cueto fared well, striking out seven batters and walking two. 

Cueto faced a total of 14 batters in the first, second, third and fifth innings. He went against seven in the fourth.

Johnny Cueto returns to mound in Reds minor league game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) 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 SP Johnny Cueto back in camp, still on track for opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) 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
(3/25/2015) 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
(3/21/2015) 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."


Johnny Cueto flies back to Dominican Republic to address family issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price told reporters on Friday that Johnny Cueto left spring camp for the Dominican Republic to address a family issue, and that it shouldn't impact his readiness for Opening Day, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Price will work out at the team's facility in the Dominican Republic while he is in the Caribbean.


DeSclafani, Marquis, Iglesias join Cueto, Leake in Reds rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Reds starting pitchers Anthony DeSclafani, Jason Marquis and Raisel Iglesias have secured spots in the rotation to begin the season, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. They join Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake.

Homer Bailey is still recovering from September elbow surgery and will start the season on the disabled list. Paul Maholm, who was also competing for a spot in the rotation, has been told he will now compete for a spot in the bullpen.

"I think we have a pretty good idea of where we're headed," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "That being said, we still have 2 1/2 weeks of spring training games to go to make sure, No. 1, that we're healthy, and No. 2, that how we feel now remains the same."


Reds' Price on Johnny Cueto: 'He's special'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) 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
(2/20/2015) 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.

Report: Reds' goal is to lock Johnny Cueto up to extension


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2015) 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
(12/23/2014) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Although the Reds have received calls on the availability of pitchers Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman, it is more likely that Mike Leake or Mat Latos would be dealt this offseason instead, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said they were "close" to a couple of trades on Tuesday, but both fell through, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. When asked about rumors of a Chapman trade, Jocketty said, "I'll listen to anything that makes sense. It was not something we initiated."
