Does anyone know anything about this Johnny Cueto kid? Like age or height? I saw where he pitched in the GCL last year and had a solid bb/k rate and hr/9 rate. Also pitched a solid six innings with the Sarasota Reds. I read last week on Lancaster's blog that Cueto was a guy the Reds are pretty high on, yet we never hear anything on him.
Dayton wins 2-1
Greetings from Sarasota! The sun was out and pitching was on display as the Dragons and Delmarva Shore Birds, class A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, squared off against each other on Tuesday afternoon at the Reds Minor League Complex. The Dragons picked up a 2-1 come from behind win with a pair of runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to erase a 1-0 deficit.
The Shore Birds got on the board with a single tally in the top of the seventh inning before the Dragons rallied for two in the eighth. Chris Denove led off the inning with a single and moved to second on a base hit by Gerardo Cabrera. Mike Jones moved the runners along with a SAC bunt and then back to back RBI singles by Eric Eymann and Mike Griffin gave the Dragons the 2-1 lead.
Johnny Cueto started the game for Dayton on the mound and tossed 5.0 shutout innings allowing three hits before giving way to Ranier Feliz who pitched the sixth and seventh. Feliz allowed one earned run in the 2.0 innings he worked. Tim Weiman picked up the win shutting down Delmarva in the final two innings.
The Dragons are in Fort Myers on Wednesday afternoon to take on the Beloit Snappers, the class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.
Wish you were here!
