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.
