07:04 AM ET 05.07 | On the DL with a strained right lat muscle since mid-April, Reds righty Johnny Cueto nears a return. [Cueto] threw 25 pitches in a bullpen session before Monday's game against the Braves, but will likely need another bullpen session before he is ready to go on a rehab assignment, according to Reds head athletic trainer Paul Lessard. "He looked very good and he said he felt very good," Lessard said. "He'll see (Reds medical director Timothy) Kremchek and we'll see where we go from here." ... [Cueto] was scheduled to start his rehab assignment last Friday for Double-A Pensacola, but Kremchek discovered soreness in his oblique. Cueto said the soreness was nothing compared to the pain he felt in the oblique last postseason.

No-sense in rushing him his replacement Cingrine has been excellent and the Reds will have a big decision to make on what to do with the extra pitcher.

when cueto gets back and if cueo returns to formkeep Cueto in rotation with Bailey Latos And Cingrani and either Leake or Arroyo to bullpen.send ondrusek back to louisville. the reds have another problem. What to do when Heisey comes off DL. The Reds brought Derek Robinson when Ludwick got hurt opening day,and brought up Donald Lutz After Heisey went on DL.Lutz is 3 for 4 in pinch hit appearances. all 3 hits were solid line drives. Heisey has not showed he could hit well enough to hold an everyday start inline up. a platoon of X Paul and Robinson in LF has been more productive.
