Mark, any idea why Cueto didn’t get the call for Friday?

It was said last Sunday on the radio that they wanted to give Cueto a couple of extra days due to amount of innings already thrown. He has already piled up 143 2/3 innings this seasonl.

From MLB Trade Rumors…
•The White Sox have made a series of transactions at the minor league level, according to a tweet from its Triple-A affiliate Charlotte Knights (h/t to’s Scott Merkin). The team has added righty Chien-Ming Wang on a minor league deal. Wang, who has thrown at least 27 MLB innings over each of the last three seasons, was recently let go by the Reds after opting out of his deal.
•Meanwhile, the Reds have acquired righty Dylan Axelrod from the White Sox for an as-yet unknown return. The 28-year-old threw 128 1/3 innings last year for Chicago, including 20 starts, but managed only a 5.68 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9. He currently sports a 4.50 ERA through 88 frames at Triple-A on the year, logging 7.8 K/9 versus 3.7 BB/9.

OT- Mark, just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed your coverage leading up to and including the all-star game, as well as post comments and articles. Your photos, player quotes and observations made the all-star game a joy and made the majesty of the game more real, as though I was much closer than sitting by my computer in Pasadena, California!?* Thanks for what you do, Neb.

Hey Neb — very nice of you to say. It was fun being there and a true preview of what’s to come in about one year.
