No day-after issues for Cueto
It appears that Reds ace Johnny Cueto came through Tuesday’s six-inning, 93-pitch start against Philadelphia without any health setbacks. Cueto, of course, was pitching after he missed time with right elbow stiffness. Besides having no problems on the mound vs. the Phillies, an important was no issues the day after on Wednesday.
“He looks good. He came in, he was bubbly,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “He hadn’t played catch yet but there were no signs of any issues. He wasn’t complaining of any type of soreness. I’m sure he’ll have his regular post pitching soreness. What we’re hoping is that there is not what he felt after the start in Kansas City, which was considerably more. i think that was something he was able to notice the next day without throwing.”
Cueto’s next start is scheduled for Sunday vs. the Padres.
