Cueto, Bailey ready to throw innings · Notes, Quotes · Roster Report

The Reds have a plan set out for rehabbing right-handers Johnny Cueto and Homer Bailey that points to both returning right around the end of April.

Cueto and Bailey remained in Arizona Sunday after the Reds' 10-8 loss to the Diamondbacks. Each will pitch at the club's complex in Goodyear at an extended spring training game this week.

Cueto will throw two innings Monday at Goodyear. He's then scheduled to throw for Louisville April 16, 21 and 26.

Bailey will throw three innings Tuesday at Goodyear. He's then scheduled to throw for Louisville April 17 and 22. He'll throw again April 27, but that could be for the Reds.

"Homer's a little ahead of Johnny because he went out later," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "We'll make a decision on the 27th. He could be ready or he might need another one."

Cueto and Bailey were slotted in the No. 3 and 4 position in the starting rotation. But Cueto had to be shut down with shoulder inflammation on March 16. Bailey went out with shoulder impingement about a week later.
