Johnny Cueto On DL With Strain

Posted By Derek Lavezzo On April 16, 2013 @ 11:06 AM In MLB | No Comments

[1]The Reds have lost top starter Johnny Cueto for at least a few weeks because of a strained muscle in his back, the third significant injury for the defending NL Central champions in the season’s opening weeks.

Cueto went on the 15-day disabled list on Monday. The Reds called up right-handed reliever Justin Freeman from Triple-A Louisville, a boost to their often-used bullpen.

The Reds are likely to call up left-hander Tony Cingrani to start in Cueto’s spot on Thursday.
