Cueto AND Bailey Injured

http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20080825&content_id=3365312&vkey=news_cin&fext=.jsp&c_id=cin:

Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto will miss his next start, scheduled for Saturday against San Francisco, after being examined by team physician Dr. Timothy Kremchek on Monday.

The examination revealed a posterior strain of his right elbow, possibly due to hyperextension of that elbow.

Cueto, who left Sunday's start at Colorado after three innings, will be re-examined Friday.

Right-hander Homer Bailey was also examined Monday in Cincinnati by Kremchek. Tests revealed a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament of his right knee.

Bailey will miss his next start for Triple-A Louisville, scheduled for Thursday, and will be evaluated again by Kremchek at the end of the week.

The two options for the spot start are Daryl Thompson, and Ramon Ramirez. Both will pitch tonight. Keep an eye on the Louisville(Ramirez starting) and Sarasota(Thompson starting) box scores tonight. Thompson has a 5.91 era in his last two starts in Sarasota, and  from From July 6-Aug.15, Ramon had a 1.74 era with 7 of his  8 starts quality. Ramon gave up 4 runs in 6.1 innings his last start in Louisville. I'm hoping the Reds will be sensible and promote Ramirez to ML and Thompson to AAA, and if Cueto misses another turn, see is Thompson is ready then. Don't rush him.
