Red Reposter: Johnny Cueto and conflicting information

Bob Levey

Did Cueto injure his shoulder or his lat?

Baseball America: 2013 MLB Draft: First Round Analysis

BA likes the Reds' first round selection of Phillip Ervin. Area scout Ben Jones considers Ervin a steal at number 27. Ervin has plus hitting ability and can play center field, but he fell down the board due to a recent ankle injury. Jones sees Ervin as the Reds' second best outfield prospect behind Billy Hamilton and ahead of Jesse Winker.

Sheldon: Reds tab versatile Fullerton player with second pick

Cal-State Fullerton's Michael Lorenzen can pitch and play the outfield. The Reds believe that Lorenzen is better suited to pitch in the pros, but he's expressed a preference to play center field. This will be an interesting story to watch going forward as Lorenzen and the organization work out his career path.

Warnemuende: Cueto on DL with right shoulder strain's Jeremy Warnemuende reports that the Reds have diagnosed Johnny Cueto with a shoulder sprain. Dusty Baker says the injury is not as serious as the one to Cueto's lat from earlier this season. However, this story gets more interesting when we see that other outlets have the injury listed as a lat sprain. Stephen Strasburg, Johnny Cueto placed on DL with lat injuries

Mike Axisa writes that Cueto suffered a sprained lat, so we have some conflicting information regarding the situation. A lat injury is nothing sneeze at, but I'd still prefer it to any type of serious shoulder issue.
