Cueto has a mild oblique strain. Not good news. #reds


Sounds like he may be done for the post season...or at least no sooner til World Series

I wonder what "grade" Cozart's strain was considered. Regardless can't imagine that he will be allowed to take the hill for at least a little while. That is not good news.

Not good news at all!

Having said that, this team has shown all year they can overcome some adversity. I would never have predicted what this team did when JoVo went down.

Just makes winning it all that much sweeter. Adversity is part of the equation. This team just needs to keep getting after it. Cueto will be missed. But the job still gets done.

Game 1 of the World Series is Oct. 24. Cueto's injury occurred. Oct. 6. That's doable. Would expect them to DL him today. #reds


sounds IF they make it to the WS he may be able to go sometime during then, which would be HUGE, would need him to win the whole freaking thing IMO

Why were they even thinking back spasms?

He was grabbing his side.

Reds' medical staff, once again.

Not sure what that all has to do with it? Not like they put him back out there for game 2 and made it worse, don't think they could have done anything to prevent it

Next time a batter backs out Cueto needs to throw the damn ball.

Man, that really bites. I was counting on Cueto for the NLCS, if not to finish off the Giants. Heal fast!

i think the reds knew the whole time they just didn't announce it.

bingo! but don't give up hope this thing is still doable.

The way I look at it is that Cueto would only play 1 or 2 games in the series, yeah it could be a big deal if it were the deciding games but we still have great pitchers in Latos Arroyo and Homer to fill in. My main point is atleast it's not a every day player like Phillips or Votto, which would be a huge miss if they got injured.

They did know. I heard it from the MOST reliable of sources during the late iniings of game 1. You can figure it out who it was by checking my other posts. :)

If that were true, why did they go on and on about back spasms being the problem?

Doc Hollywood likes to cover his butt instead of taking care of business. The Reds should had said nothing until they decided a course of action.

I don't understand why they would dl him now. At least wait til after the game. Heck if we win today you could make a case to keep him on the roaster if there's any chance at all he could pitch.

To keep our opponents guessing.....which raises the question why spill the beans now? To that question, your guess is as good as mine.

Here's my theory.

1)They said back spasms to keep our opponents guessing (when they initially thought oblique strain = out for the rest of the playoffs),

2) and now they've admitted it was an oblique strain for the same reason, to keep our opponents guessing wrong (ie Johnny is now expected back much sooner than your typical oblique strain)

This is a shame, but I guess it'll even things out with the Nats not using Strasburg.

I think tonight's game just grew a little bit in importance. It's the difference between five days to figure everything out - or deciding on the fly whether to send guys out on short rest and/or shelve Cueto for the NLCS.

Without a doubt.

Exactly. What is the point of lying in that situation? I see none.

I would rather see Hoover start and use the pen long relievers in a game including Leake than Leake starting. But maybe he'll pull a "Bronson".

Fay just tweeted that Jocketty says on wlw that it's not as serious as thought. Hope to have him back in a couple days.

To be fair, Fay was just retweeting someone else's post. Fay included a skeptical note.

He also just tweeted that Latos is dealing with the flu (though it wasn't bad enough that they sent him home).

Maybe the Reds are just fond of adversity and are in search of it?!

They did knowTexas Dave. I was told by a HIGH ranking Reds official during game 1 in SF that it was an oblique strain.

Okay, then why lie about it? What is the tactical advantage? What did they gain by lying?

To spread disinformation to your foe.

General rule----the less accurrate your opponent's info is the better.

Maybe he was rooming with Scott Rolen. Are back spasms contagious? :laugh:

Doesn't so much matter relative to what they do with the player. Teams across the country in MLB and across sports* misrepresent athlete condition to throw the other team off or because sometimes they just don't know, initial diagnosis isn't right, or whatever.

Important thing now is to DL Cueto and get Leake back on the roster. Sounds like Latos will go again tomorrow but hopefully no tomorrow.
