Johnny Cueto leaves game with pain in triceps
Potentially bad news for the Reds, as ace Johnny Cueto was forced to leave his start against the Pirates on Saturday night with discomfort in his throwing arm.
Reds ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from his start against the Pirates on Saturday night because of discomfort in the triceps of his throwing arm. Cueto worked 4 1/3 innings (two hits, one run, three strikeouts) before being forced to depart.
As noted, the initial diagnosis is pain in his right triceps, but nothing in terms of severity or Cueto's status going forward is known at this time. The Pirates' broadcast team reported that Cueto's removal was termed a precautionary measure. He'll be evaluated further on Sunday. Perhaps worth noting is that in 2008 Cueto was sidelined for 12 days because of tendon soreness in his triceps.
This season, the 27-year-old Cueto has pitched to a 2.60 ERA across three starts. In 2012, Cueto finished fourth in the NL Cy Young balloting.
