    Marshall's been cleared to start throwing Monday. Cueto hasn't. Cueto will be tested again in a week. #reds @Cincienquirer
    Looking more likely that Cueto's season is done.

    didnīt expect anything else and I think the way the pitchers played all season itīs a good idea to give him all the time he needs...

    he missed to much time and had to many setbacks to let him pitch in mlb again... he wonīt be an upgrade most likely anyway

    Re: Cueto/ Marshall Update

    This is decent news. I didn't expect either one to have a chance the rest of the year. The pen could use another lefty in the post-season. Throwing is a long way from pitcing though. We've been at this point with Marshall a couple times already.

    The team has pretty well compensated for losing them both.

    Let the guys heal completely and thoroughy. We'll roll the dice with who is on the roster now.

    Re: Cueto/ Marshall Update

    Two questions:

    Is Cueto's lat injury related to the oblique injury he sustained when Pagan backed out mid-pitch in Game 1 of the NLDS last year?

    And why was Cueto bouncing around like he had no issues whatsoever during the walk-off celebration in a game the Reds played about a month ago?

    Bouncing around and throwing a baseball are not the same thing. It is not at all fair to pass judgment based on this observation.

    my fault... I wanted to say, that I wouldnīt let him pitch at the highest level (this season!) again...

    let him rest, try to get him in better physical condition for next year and work on his motion...

    To be clear, I'm not suggesting that he's faking it.

    I'm saying that if he can't pitch because of a lat or oblique strain, he shouldn't be bouncing around and end up re-re-re-aggravating the injury. He seems to be extremely fragile.

    Re: Cueto/ Marshall Update

    How great would it be to get Cueto back in the pen to help with some right handed relief? Is he the postseason 8th inning guy? Could he not go like 15 innings in late Sept/late Oct with a 0.00 ERA?

    I'm liking this idea more and more as a solution to putting the best team on the field and staying healthy.

    Well, if you and I were voting, it would be a tie.

    Cueto is not a reliever, he doesn't have that experience, he probably has no experience (recently, if ever) warming quickly to pitch relief. He's coming off injury. Don't see him as the guy pitching eighth inning of critical games.

    I'd use Cueto early in games to bail out starters who don't have it. In the playoffs and stretch drive, I'd rather do that than let a starter get beat around when he's off.

    Re: Cueto/ Marshall Update

    I'm not so sure I like the idea of Cueto in the 'pen either. Can a starter get used to a relief role that quickly. Can he break a routine and get loose in the short amount of time required? If he tries to do that and goes out there when he's not completely loose...how much more does he risk injury...and potentially something that could keep him out a part of next season?

    However, that could all be nonsense and he might do a fantastic job. But he just doesn't seem like someone who could adapt like that.
