Reds GM Jocketty: Cueto negotiations 'won't be easy'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Thursday he met with the reps for starting pitcher Johnny Cueto at the Winter Meetings, according to MLB Network Radio. Although, Jocketty admits it will not be easy signing the 28-year-old Cueto to a contract extension.

Cueto, who won a career-high 20 games in 2014, is in the final year of a five-year, $36.2 million contract.

"We had a brief meeting with his agent down here and we'll see how re-signing him progresses. But it won't be easy," Jocketty said.


Reds more likely to trade Leake, Latos than Cueto, Chapman


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."


Report: Marlins eyeing pitcher Johnny Cueto as trade target


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Sources have indicated the Marlins are interested in trading for Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto, reports 790AM The Ticket.

With Cueto set to become a free agent after the 2015 season, reports have shown the Reds are interested in trading one of their starting pitchers. And with the Marlins in the market for a starting pitcher, it could be a perfect match.

In 2014, Cueto went 20-9 with a 2.25 ERA.


Reds will likely trade one 2016 free-agent class starting pitcher


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Tuesday he suspects he will have to trade one of the four starting pitchers due to hit the free-agent market next offseason, according to the Boston Herald

Johnny Cueto, Alfredo Simon, Mat Latos and Mike Leake are all set to become free agents after the 2015 season. Jocketty said he would like to keep Cueto.


Rival execs say Reds willing to entertain offers for starters


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Rival executives say the Reds are "listening" to what teams may offer for certain members of their starting rotation, reports CBS Sports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon all are eligible for free agency after the 2015 season, though it's unlikely the team would trade its ace, Cueto, the report said.

Heyman noted that "Latos recent history of injuries might limit his value, Leake has a decent pay day coming as a fifth-year arbitration eligible player and Simon wasn't as good in the second half after a big beginning last year. So none of those pitchers would bring anything close to the kind of haul Cueto could potentially bring."


Reds pick up option on Johnny Cueto


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Reds have picked up an option on pitcher Johnny Cueto, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

Cueto's option was for just $10 million, leading many to believe the Reds would extend the offer. Cueto was excellent last season, posting a 2.25 ERA over 243 2/3 innings. Cueto is entering the final year of his deal, but has expressed an interest to remain with the Reds. 


Johnny Cueto delivers win No. 20 in season finale


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto picked up his 20th win in Sunday's season finale, giving up one earned run on six hits in eight innings while striking out seven and walking none in his team's 4-1 victory over the Pirates.

Cueto (20-9) was also responsible for the game's key hit, as the Reds left him in to hit for himself in the bottom of the eighth with a man on base. He laced a single to center field to break a 1-1 tie before the Reds offense added a two-run blast later in the inning after the starter had been removed for a pinch runner. Cueto ends the season with a 2.25 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 242:65 K:BB ratio in 243 2/3 innings. If not for Clayton Kershaw, he'd be the clear choice for the NL Cy Young award.
