Source: #Reds' Cueto going on disabled list with lat strain.
Matt Garza strained his lat in February and is looking to make his season debut for the Cubs in May...
At least Cingrani getting a shot should be exciting.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Didn't Cueto tweak something in one of his first two starts this year as well. I seem to recall a trainer visit to the mound or Cueto grimacing or something.
Cueto has had a lat problem before. He hurt the right lat back in September 2011 and had to be shut down for the last few weeks of that season.
Just make sure its properly rehabbed and he eases back into pitching. It's a long season and no need to rush.
What I'm reading is NOT good. Isn't this the same injury he suffered in the playoffs last year?Will wait to hear the severity, but Homer, et al. will have to pick it up big time. Season just doesn't feel right.
I thought it was an oblique injury last year but I could be wrong.
6 weeks as a likely minimum blows. Dempster came back from a Lat quick but it was close to the deadline and he sucked the rest of the year after coming back.
Who is taking his place?
I wonder if it has anything to do with his Luis Tiant delivery.
