Cueto threw in ‘pen; Hanigan update
Reds ace Johnny Cueto appears to have gotten over the setback to his right oblique. Cueto long tossed on Monday and threw 25 pitches in the bullpen.
“He did very well. He looked very good and said he felt very good,” head trainer Paul Lessard said.
Cueto is scheduled to see Dr. Tim Kremchek later today and will probably have another bullpen session before thoughts of a rehab assignment resume.
Before going out to throw, Cueto seemed to be feeling positive about his health.
“I feel good. I feel better in my oblique,” Cueto said.
Cueto, who is on the 15-day DL because of a strained right lat, came down with oblique soreness during his exam with Kremchek on Thursday.
“It was a little sore,” Cueto said. “I didn’t feel it when I threww but did when he touched it.”
*In other injury news, catcher Ryan Hanigan will be checked out by Kremchek also today. If all goes as expected, Hanigan (oblique, thumb injuries) will join Triple-A Louisville on a rehab assignment Tuesday at Lehigh Valley.
