Cueto to DL

After being remarkably fortunate last season with good health, especially in the rotation, an injury has hit the Reds rotation…and it’s the ace.

Johnny Cueto was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right lat muscle. The contract of Justin Freeman was selected from Triple-A Louisville. OF Ryan Ludwick was moved to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster. I’d expect LHP Tony Cingrani to get the call-up once Cueto’s turn in the rotation comes around.

So far this season — the Reds have lost Ludwick, Cueto and Sean Marshall to the DL….and that’s only through 12 games of the season.

Not at all the expectation coming in.

Here is some more on MLB.com — it will updated after the clubhouse access period.

Injuries happen… The strong survive and over come…. Let’s see what the Reds do…. T2

Cueto is over rated. He will always be injury prone due to the way he twists as he throws the ball. You can expect to see cueto make the dl 2 to 3 times every year, and the number of dl days to increase as he gets older. Latos and bailey both would appear to be physically more resiliant than cueto. Surprised that freeman got the nod over cingrani, who is the heir apparent to leake.
As far as ludwick goes he is no true 4 hitter, we will miss his bat but not as much as you blow hards will make this gives several of our young guys the opportunity to step it up

Really???? Not trying to be mean but do you know baseball? First, you say Freeman instead of Cingrani. I should not have to explain that, you dont pull up Cingrani until his start so that you can help the bullpen out. Second, Cueto is a Cy Young candidate each year. No matter what, how can that be over rated. He is by far our Ace… Ludwick, ok he is not a prototypical 4 hitter, but he is still our 4 hitter.

Not quite the W-L start I had envisioned either…

Seems like they have more problems than injuries . One is the bats , the other being the bull pen . But it is early .

Lets see… Lost our Ace pitcher, number 4 hitter, and our lefthanded specialist that was also one of the best bullpen pitchers in baseball… How many teams can survive that?

with the cardinals in the same division the reds are doomed
