Johnny Cueto News Archive
Cueto gave up three runs on nine hits with one walk and four strikeouts over seven inning Tuesday against the Royals.
Cueto surrendered two runs on five hits over seven innings of work in Thursday's win over the Giants.
Cueto is now slated to start the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox on Saturday, with Friday's game postponed due to rain.
Cueto struggled with his command against the Braves in Sunday's loss. "He was up," Reds manager Bryan Price said of Cueto. "Sometimes when you talk about a pitcher's stuff, stuff only correlates when it's commanded and well located. And today, I thought he had good stuff but without the command that really made it the typical Johnny Cueto type of stuff. And [the Braves] took advantage of it, to their credit."
Cueto notched his second win Tuesday by holding the Brewers to two runs on three hits with no walks and five strikeouts.
The Reds could have skipped one of their starters to keep Cueto on his regular four days' rest after Saturday's rainout but opted against it.
