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.
Thanks OBM! Hopefully he hits Sarasota by the end of the year.
Man IF Cueto and Homer pan out, and Elizardo keeps up his good work, we could have 3 very good good pitchers for years to come.
