Consequences of Cueto injury?
This is a development that could create some havoc with the Reds rotation. Johnny Cueto left his Saturday start vs. the Rockies after only one inning. Cueto was supposed to throw 50-60 pitches over 3-4 innings.
You may recall that Cueto exited his March 11 vs. TEX after two innings because of stiffness in his forearm and biceps. After a couple of days off and having his next start pushed back, he has been long tossing.
In his one inning, Cueto allowed two earned runs and three hits with no walks and one strikeout. He hit leadoff batter Seth Smith before giving up three-straight singles and a one-out sacrifice fly.
Cueto exited the ballpark to see a doctor and said he would speak later.
