Johnny Cueto strikes out career-high 12 in CG shutout


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto was masterful during a 4-0 win Wednesday against the Pirates. Cueto struck out a career-high 12 batters during a complete-game shutout.

Cueto (1-2) threw 71 of 107 pitches for strikes, while allowing just three hits and no walks in his third career shutout. He lowered his ERA to 1.50.

Cueto started the game with a strikeout of Jose Tabata on the way to the first of six 1-2-3 innings. He struck out miltiple batters in the second, fourth, eighth and ninth innings. The only hits he allowed were Tony Sanchez's infield single in the third, Andrew McCutchen's double in the fourth and Jordy Mercer's infield single in the fifth.

The right-handed hurler, who hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in any of his four starts, is scheduled to be back on the hill Tuesday in a rematch with the Pirates.

"Welcome back, Johnny Cueto," manager Bryan Price said. "He's been great his first three starts, and he was dominant today."


Johnny Cueto pegged with tough-luck loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto tossed a quality start on Friday, but was not backed by enough run support, suffering his second loss of the season in a 2-1 defeat to the Rays.

Making his third start, Cueto (0-2) surrendered a run-scoring single to Evan Longoria and a solo home run to Matt Joyce for his only damage on the night. He yielded two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out six over seven innings pitched. He tossed 119 pitches, 71 of which were strikes.

Cueto has 2.14 ERA and a 23:8 K:BB ratio over his first 21 innings pitched. He'll make his next start Wednesday against Pittsburgh.

Johnny Cueto pitches well in no decision


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto tossed a solid game against the Mets Saturday.

Cueto went seven strong innings, giving up five hits and three walks. He allowed just two earned runs and struck out nine batters. Cueto was in line for a win, but Reds closer J.J. Hoover melted down in the ninth inning. A walkoff grand slam ruined the chance at Cueto picking up his first win of the year. 

Cueto has now pitched two exceptional games to start the season, and has little to show for it. He'll look to earn his first win of the year against the Rays next week.


Johnny Cueto suffers hard-luck loss in opener Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cueto's only mistake was giving up a solo home run to Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina in the seventh inning, but it was enough to start the season 0-1. He's hoping for a healthy season after making just 11 starts in 2013. Cueto's next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Mets.


Reds name Johnny Cueto their opening day starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) In news that belongs in the same category as rain being wet, the Reds have named Johnny Cueto their opening day starter. That became a foregone conclusion when it was determined that Mat Latos (knee) would not be ready.

Cueto, who will pitch against St. Louis on Monday, proved himself recovered from a shoulder ailment with a strong performance after a bad first inning Tuesday in a simulated game. He owns a 43-25 record over the past four seasons combined and has not posted an ERA higher than 2.82 in any of the last three years.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Johnny Cueto knocked around in first start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto was knocked around during his first start Tuesday.

Johnny Cueto shakes off rust in first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto made his spring debut Thursday against the Indians, in the team's second exhibition game.

Cueto had no trouble getting through two innings of work, a good sign after a lat injury bothered him for much of last season. He held the Indians off the scoreboard in his two innings, pitching around a pair of walks and a double with two strikeouts.

Assuming he is healthy, Cueto's spot in the rotation is not in doubt. He was effective when healthy a year ago, posting a 2.82 ERA in 60 2/3 innings over 11 starts.  


Johnny Cueto set to start Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto will start the team's second Cactus League game Thursday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Cueto said his lat strain is behind him coming into camp and that he feels healthy.

"He's not (Jonathan) Broxton or (Mat) Latos, who are coming off of surgeries of that nature, it's not the same," manager Bryan Price said. "He came into camp healthy, so we're all optimistic he'll have a healthy season and pitch all year. Because he's had some setbacks and his history here with the Reds, there's certainly going to be a collective sigh of relief when we get through spring training and he's locked in and doing what he does, for sure."

Cueto made just 11 starts last year due to injury but impressed when he did take the mound, going 5-2 with a 2.82 ERA and 51:18 K:BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings.


Pirates get better of Johnny Cueto


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Reds starter Johnny Cueto seemed rattled from the start in Tuesday's wild card playoff game in Pittsburgh. He ran into trouble allowing two solo homers in the second inning and never recovered.

Cueto took the loss as the Reds were eliminated by the Pirates, 6-2. Cueto gave up four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and a walk over just 3 1/3 innings on the outing. He threw 60 pitches on the start.

The Pittsburgh fans were chanting Cueto's name in the second inning and it appeared to get to the starter as he surrendered the two long balls. The 27-year-old went 5-2 this season for Cincinnati with a 2.82 ERA over 11 starts. Cueto spent a lot of time on the shelf this season and will look to remain healthy next year.

Johnny Cueto to start Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Reds starter Johnny Cueto will make the start Tuesday in a one-game playoff against the Pirates.

Johnny Cueto solid in no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2013) Reds starter Johnny Cueto got the starting nod on Monday night at home against the New York Mets. Cueto just returned from a lat strain his last time out with a win over Houston.

The Cincinnati starter took a no-decision as he left after seven innings with the score tied at two. Only one of those runs were charged to Cueto, who gave up just three hits and three walks on 99 pitches in a game that saw the Reds clinch a playoff berth.

Cueto struck out five batters on the no-decision and has given up just one earned run over his first 12 innings off the disabled list. The Reds have not scheduled another start for Cueto just yet.
