Johnny Cueto tosses quality start against Cubs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto turned in a quality start Tuesday against the Cubs.

Cueto allowed three runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out eight and walked two during the outing. Home runs proved to be the difference. Cueto allowed a solo shot to Anthony Rizzo in the first inning. He was then able to toss five scoreless innings before allowing another home run in the seventh. With a man on, Cueto allowed a two-run shot to Arismendy Alcantara. Cueto managed a strikeout during the inning, but out two additional men on, leading to him being taken out. 

With the loss, Cueto dropped to 15-8. He’ll take on the Pirates in his next start.


Johnny Cueto surrenders five runs in loss vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto was stuck with a loss Wednesday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and four walks in five-plus innings and striking out four in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Cardinals.

Cueto (15-7) had won each of his last five starts before the streak came to a halt Wednesday, when he allowed a three-run double with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and left the bases loaded again the top of the sixth at the time of his removal. It was his worst start since giving up six earned runs on May 20. Cueto owns a 2.24 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 191:53 K:BB ratio in 192 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Cubs Tuesday.


Johnny Cueto turns in an excellent start in Colorado


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto turned in a fantastic start Friday against the Rockies.

Cueto allowed two runs on eight hits over eight innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. The Rockies actually struck first against the Reds ace. In the second inning, Nolan Arenado smacked a leadoff home run to put his team ahead by one. Cueto was touched up again in the sixth. He allowed a run after giving up a walk, single and a double. Cueto would settle in after that and record the final two outs of the inning via the strikeout. 

With the win, Cueto improves to 15-6. He'll take on the Cardinals in his next start.


Johnny Cueto keeps racking up wins and quality starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto tossed his 22nd quality start of the season Sunday on his way to his 14th win during a 7-2 victory against Miami. The All-Star right-hander allowed two runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out nine in eight innings.

Cueto got into an early deficit as Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-out solo home run in the top of the first inning. But Cueto was handed a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the inning thanks to a two-run homer from Devin Mesoraco.

Cueto held the one-run lead until Casey McGehee hit a one-out solo home run in the fourth inning. Though, that would be the last run Cueto allowed on the afternoon. 

He's failed to throw a quality start in just three outings this season. Cueto has won his last six decisions and hasn't lost in his last seven starts. He will be back on the hill Saturday at Colorado.


Johnny Cueto goes distance in 13th win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto earned a complete-game victory Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on six hits and two walks in nine innings and striking out six in his team's 9-2 win over the Indians.

Cueto (13-6) hasn't given up more than three runs in an outing since June 6, and he is now 5-0 over his last six starts. He surrendered a run on a single in the first inning but was able to hold the Indians to one run in the seventh over the rest of the game. Cueto owns a 2.05 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 172:45 K:BB ratio in 171 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Marlins Sunday.


Johnny Cueto fans nine again in win over Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto put together another dominant outing Thursday in Miami, improving to 12-6 on the season. The right-hander limited his opposition to only one run on four hits and one walk while striking out nine over seven innings of a 3-1 victory.

Cueto has struck out nine in each of his last two starts. He has only one loss since June 11. He owns a 2.05 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP over 23 starts (162 2/3 innings). He will look to stay sharp Tuesday at Cleveland.

Johnny Cueto Ks nine, blanks Nationals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto twirled a gem Saturday afternoon at home against the Nationals, improving to 11-6 on the year. The right-hander yielded four hits and three walks while striking out nine over seven scoreless frames of a 1-0 victory.

Over his last two starts covering 12 innings, Cueto has allowed only two earned runs. He owns a 2.08 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP over 22 starts (155 2/3 innings). He will look to keep rolling his next turn, Thursday night in Miami.

Reds set post-break rotation plans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) The Reds will kick off the second half by starting Mike Leake against the Yankees in New York Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Leake will be pitching on regular rest after making his last start Saturday. He'll be followed in the rotation by Alfredo Simon and Johnny Cueto before the team heads to Milwaukee, where Mat Latos and Homer Bailey are scheduled to start Monday and Tuesday, respectively.


Johnny Cueto earns 10th win before All-Star break


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto capped his first half with a win Sunday against the Pirates. The first-time All-Star allowed three runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out seven in six innings.

Cueto (10-6) opened with three scoreless innings before Neil Walker had an RBI groundout in the fourth inning. Josh Harrison came back with an RBI single in the fifth inning and Walker hit a solo home run leading off the sixth inning. But Cueto left with a 6-3 lead, which the bullpen held.

The right-hander won for the fifth time in seven starts. He hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in his last seven starts. Cueto is expected to pitch in the first series after the All-Star break against the Yankees.


Johnny Cueto's ERA rises above 2.00 in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto got back on the winning side Tuesday, in a 4-2 victory over the Cubs.

Cueto got some early help, as the Reds scored three runs in the first inning. He was able to make that stand up, allowing just two runs in 6 1/3 innings, on a pair of back-to-back solo home runs. He scattered six hits and a walk while striking out four batters on 97 pitches in the win.

Cueto improved his record to 9-6 on the season, while his ERA rose slightly to 2.03, the first time it has been over 2.00 since April 11.

Johnny Cueto outdueled by Tyson Ross, Padres Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto pitched well on Wednesday against the Padres, but was outdueled by Tyson Ross for the loss, dropping to 8-6 on the year. The right-hander permitted three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out eight over seven innings of a 3-0 defeat.

Cueto has notched five straight quality starts. Over that span covering 37 1/3 innings, Cueto has only allowed eight earned runs. He owns a 1.99 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP over 18 starts (131 1/3 innings). He will look to get back on track Tuesday at home against the Cubs.

Johnny Cueto falls just short in complete game bid in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto fell just short of his fourth complete game of the season Friday, in a 6-2 win over the Giants.

Cueto completed eight innings for the second start in a row, and got a chance to close it out this time. He was lifted after allowing two runs on three hits in 8 1/3 innings, while striking out three batters and walking two in the win.

Cueto has won three straight decisions since falling to .500 in early June, and is now 8-5 overall. He carries a National League-best 1.88 ERA into his next outing, set for Wednesday in San Diego. 


Johnny Cueto pitches eight strong innings


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Reds starter Johnny Cueto allowed one earned run on seven hits over eight innings Sunday, striking out eight in a 4-3 win over the Blue Jays. Cueto improved to 7-5 while lowering his ERA to 1.86, best in the majors among starters.

Two of the runs Cueto surrendered were unearned. He'll visit the Giants on Friday.


Johnny Cueto walks four in no-decision vs. Pirates Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto wasn't a factor in Tuesday's decision, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and four walks in six innings while striking out two in his team's 6-5 win over the Pirates.

Cueto hadn't walked more batters than he struck out in an outing since an ugly postseason performance last October before doing so Saturday, but he was able to largely limit the damage to pick up a quality start. He owns a 1.92 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 111:26 K:BB ratio in 108 innings. Cueto is scheduled to take on the Blue Jays Sunday.


Johnny Cueto strikes out 12 in win vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto pitched brilliantly in a win Wednesday, giving up three hits in six scoreless innings while striking out 12 and walking none in his team's 5-0 victory over the Dodgers.

Cueto (6-5) saw his ERA creep over 2.00 after giving up two earned runs in seven innings on April 11, but it's been under that level ever since. The 12 strikeouts match a season high for Cueto, who owns a 1.85 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 109:22 K:BB ratio in 102 innings. He'll take on the Pirates Tuesday.


Johnny Cueto falls to .500 in blowout loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Reds starter Johnny Cueto struggled yet again Friday, as he dropped his third decision in four outings in an 8-0 loss to the Phillies.  

Cueto tossed the ball well early in the start, but the wheels started coming off in the fourth. He was tagged for four runs in the fourth and fifth innings, and did not pitch past the fifth. He allowed the four runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out five batters on 92 pitches.

Cueto still has a sparkling 1.97 ERA that ranks third in the National League, but he has struggled recently. HE is just 5-5 on the season after going just 1-3 over his last three starts, with 11 runs allowed in that span. He will look for better results in his next outing, set for Wednesday against the Dodgers. 


Johnny Cueto strikes out seven in win vs. Diamondbacks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto notched the win Saturday, giving up five hits and one walk in 7 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out seven in his team's 5-0 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Cueto (5-4) has allowed two earned runs or less in 11 of his 12 starts this season, and the only danger he fell into Saturday was in the eighth inning, when he walked his only batter of the game and hit another batter before exiting, but the bullpen cleaned up the mess to put a bow on his scoreless outing. He owns a 1.68 ERA and 92:21 K:BB ratio in 91 innings. Cueto is scheduled to face the Phillies Friday.


Johnny Cueto drops back to .500 Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto pitched well enough for the win on Monday, but was outdueled by Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers, dropping to 4-4 on the year. The right-hander yielded four runs -- one earned -- on four hits and two walks while striking out three in 6 1/3 innings of a 4-3 defeat.

Cueto has permitted 10 runs -- seven earned -- over his last two starts (11 2/3 innings). He owns a 1.83 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP through his first 11 starts (83 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at Arizona.

Johnny Cueto stumbles late in first subpar outing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto finally stumbled Tuesday, in a 9-4 loss to the Nationals.

Cueto, who had opened the season with nine starts of seven innings or more and two or fewer runs allowed, couldn't make it through the sixth inning this time around. He actually pitched well up to that point, limiting the Nationals to two unearned runs in the first five innings.

Cueto fell apart in the sixth, however, allowing six of the seven batters he faced to reach safely, including two on hit-by-pitches. All six batters came around to score, including two inherited by the reliever, as he allowed a season-high six earned runs.

Cueto was ultimately charged with eight runs -- six earned -- on six hits and no walks. He struck out six on 94 pitches en route to the loss, dropping him to 4-3 on the season. Cueto still carries a stellar 1.86 ERA into his next start, set for Monday against the Dodgers. 


Strikeouts fueling Johnny Cueto's strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) A higher strikeout rate has played a big role in Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto's success this season.

For the first time in his career, Cueto is striking out over a batter per inning. He's seen his strikeout rate jump from 21.1 percent last year, to 28.8 percent in 2014. Cueto isn't doing anything different, either. He's working with virtually the same repertoire, and he hasn't seen a major velocity increase. Despite that, he's been able to post one of the highest swinging strike rates of his career.

Even if he sees some regression, Cueto should turn in an effective season the rest of the way. The bigger question is whether injuries will keep him from tossed 200+ innings for the second time in his career. 


Johnny Cueto agrees that he's best pitcher in baseball


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Reds sizzling right-hander Johnny Cueto is being touted as the best pitcher in baseball these days. He's not going to get an argument from the man he sees in the mirror.

"I would say, yes, definitely yes," he told the Dayton Daily News. "My numbers have to talk for me. Every time I go to the mound I do my job. And I do my job to get the best numbers."

Cueto is all but certain barring injury to have his $10 million club option picked up after this season. He is destined thereafter to land a far more lucrative contract with the Reds or some other team in free agency.


Buying Johnny Cueto as a top 25 starting pitcher rest of year


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) After another outstanding start Thursday against the Padres, it's time for everybody -- and I do mean everybody -- to jump on the bandwagon of Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto. I decided to move up Cueto in my starting pitcher rankings to No. 13, which is right behind Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg.

Whether or not you buy into Cueto keeping up this pace, he's reached the status of elite Fantasy option, which means you should be able to get a nice haul if you choose to deal him. If I owned Cueto, however, I wouldn't trade him unless you really had a weakness at another position and the rest of your rotation is solid. 

He was limited to 11 starts last season due to injury, but he still went 5-2 with a 2.82 ERA. Don't forget, he was also a 19-game winner in 2012. That season he finished as the ninth-highest scoring Fantasy starting pitcher in Head-to-Head formats. 

Cueto's strikeout rate might be a little higher than normal and he could be facing a regression in that area, but I can definitely buy him as a top 25 Fantasy starting pitcher the rest of the season.


Johnny Cueto earns historic win against Padres


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Torrid Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto became the first major league pitcher in 101 years to start the season with nine consecutive games of seven or more innings and two or fewer runs allowed with another brilliant performance Thursday afternoon against visiting San Diego.

Cueto hurled a complete-game shutout, giving up three singles, walking two and fanning eight along the way. He has just four wins in six decisions, but his 1.25 ERA is closing in on the 1.12 mark achieved by Cardinals Hall of Famer Bob Gibson in 1968.

His next potential victim is Washington early next week. He was slated to pitch Monday, but that would put him only on three day's rest.


Rainout allows Reds to shuffle rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) The Reds will shuffle their rotation a bit for Thursday's doubleheader, after Wednesday's game against the Padres was rained out.

Johnny Cueto will start Game 1 of the doubleheader, and the team will call someone up as the 26th man to start the second game, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. That should allow them to push Alfredo Simon's start to Friday and Homer Bailey to Saturday, removing the need for a fill-in Saturday. 

This chance in schedule would likely cost Tony Cingrani a chance to return from the disabled list, as expected, Saturday.
