What's the word on Johnny Cueto? Apparently, he has been blowing away low Class A hitters in the Midwest League with Dayton. Will he be joining Homer Bailey in the high Class A Sarasota rotation anytime soon? Also, why hasn't he been mentioned as one of the Reds' top pitching prospects? -- Kyle E., Fort Myers, Fla.
This question was sent a few weeks back (before Bailey was moved up to Double-A), but it was a good time to dust it off. We have a feature about Cueto that ran on the same day as this mailbag -- so be sure to check it out here.
Cueto has been dominant for the Dragons this season, and I've been told that a promotion to Sarasota could be forthcoming soon if he continues performing well.
