Reds' Price: Johnny Cueto might be back in rotation Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) 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
(5/26/2015) 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
(5/25/2015) 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
(5/25/2015) 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
(5/23/2015) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto will miss his scheduled start against the Indians on Sunday, per August Fagerstrom of MLB.com.

Cueto (3-4) has a 3.03 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 65.1 innings this season.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Reds starter Johnny Cueto (3-4) was touched for three runs on nine hits in seven innings of work to suffer the loss Tuesday against the Royals.

Two of three runs off Cueto came via two RBI doubles from Mike Moustakas.

"They're a good team. There are no excuses," Cueto said through a translator. "I did what I had to do."

Cueto fanned six in the defeat.

"I did my job and I expect the rest of the team to do their job," Cueto said. "You want to have a little more run support but there's nothing you can do."

Cueto returns to the mound for his next start Sunday in Cleveland.


Reds' Johnny Cueto strikes out nine in no decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Reds starter Johnny Cueto struck out nine in seven innings but ended up with a no decision on Thursday against San Francisco.

Cueto allowed two runs on five hits, while walking three. He threw 114 pitches, 71 for strikes and was called for a balk. 

Cueto's ERA stands at 2.93. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday, at Kansas City. 


Reds starter Johnny Cueto pitches into ninth inning for victory


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto (3-3) pitched into the ninth inning Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and fanning seven to defeat the White Sox in Game 1 of their doubleheader. 

Cueto carried a shutout into the seventh inning but shortstop Alexei Ramirez put the White Sox on the board with a solo home run. 

"He had a lot of stuff. He throws hard, he has good offspeed stuff and he has gamesmanship too," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of Cueto. "He kind of sped up his delivery and [started] getting ahead real quick. I think he just kind of has that feel for it."

Cueto rebounded from his previous start where he surrendered five runs in six innings for a loss. 

Cueto returns to the mound for his next start Thursday against the Giants.

He then gave up another home run in the third inning before tacking on a fifth run in his sixth and final frame.

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.

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.

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.
