Cueto has sore forearm

Scheduled to work four innings against the Rangers, Johnny Cueto lasted only two innings while throwing 40 pitches. Cueto was lifted as a precaution because he had tightness in his right forearm. He allowed two earned runs, four hits and one walk with two strikeouts.

The injury, which Cueto first felt warming up in the bullpen, is not currently believed to be serious.

“It was sore when I threw the breaking ball. I feel it. I’m fine,” Cueto said.

Cueto is scheduled to be examined by team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek on Saturday.

“He has some tightness in his mid-forearm,” head trainer Paul Lessard said. “It’s not his elbow, which we were happy about. He just felt like he couldn’t loosen up when he was pitching. We said instead of keep sending him out there, why not just sit him down so it doesn’t turn into anything.”

Hannigan signed for three years – that time period seems to be the Reds’ window. If two years from this July, the team’s out of it and it doesn’t believe it can re-sign Votto, then he goes on the trading block and maybe some others with him; and the window closes. That seems to be the pattern with small markets. What’s so exciting right now is that this window has been opened at all, and that the Reds management has been so aggressive in signing its young talent which gives the team a chance to win it all; something poor Pittsburgh never seems to get.
