Johnny Cueto To Start Opening Day For The Reds

CuetoJohnny Cueto is set to start on Opening Day for the Cincinnati Reds for the third straight season.

First-year manager Bryan Price said Thursday that Cueto will pitch Monday at home against St. Louis.

Price had to sort through a series of minor injuries, including Cueto’s tender right shoulder, before making the final determination.

Tony Cingrani will start the Reds’ second game, and he was the only starter in the rotation without an injury issue this spring.
