Cueto is so young which IMO makes him a bonafide legit prospect. The kid is only 20

I agree Icehole. Cueto came out of nowhere and is seriously dealing down in Dayton right now. Obviously its a little early in the season but if he keeps his numbers up this season, you will see him climbing up the Reds prospects list. To start the season he didnt even make the Reds top 30 according to Baseball America.

Well he is short, listed at 5'10. He throws a fastball that sits in the low 90s, has a good changeup and slider. I havent see him pitch yet in person, and there isnt much info around on him, so I cant say how good hit pitches really are or if he has good movement on his fastball. Hopefully someone else can chime in and get some more information on him.
