Cueto’s rehab start goes well; pitches again on Tuesday with Dayton

Cincinnati Reds ace starting pitcher  Johnny Cueto reported no setbacks on Friday, the day after he threw 50 pitches in three innings during a rehab start for Class A Dayton on Thursday.

The Reds placed Cueto on the 15-day disabled list on April 15 with a strained right lat. He was set to begin a rehab assignment last week but felt soreness in his right oblique. He rested for a few more days before he resumed throwing.

Cueto allowed one run on four hits, walked none and struck out four during Thursday’s outing.

Cueto is scheduled to pitch again on Tuesday for the Dayton Dragons.

Reds option Harris to AAA, activate Stubbs to play CF

The Cincinnati Reds activated center fielder Drew Stubbs from the disabled list before the opening game of a series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. The move restores a key member of their starting lineup who has speed, power and a solid glove in the field.

The Reds sent outfielder/infielder Willie Harris  to Triple-A Louisville to open a roster spot. Harris was called up and was a valuable member of the bench.

Stubbs went on the DL June 15 after pulling muscles in his left side during a swing. He went on a three-game rehab stint at Class-A Dayton over the weekend and said the pain is gone, but still has some tightness.

The Reds have been in first place in the NL Central since May 24 and currently has a two-game lead over Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

Reds activate Bray from DL, sends Hoover to Triple-A Louisville

It has been two long months on the disabled list, but Cincinnati Reds left-handed reliever Bill Bray was finally activated before Friday’s series opener against the Minnesota Twins.

Bray was initially put on the DL due to a strained left groin, but back trouble caused him to stay awhile longer.

Bray returned following a six-game rehab assignment with Class A Dayton and Triple-A Louisville. In his four outings for Louisville, he gave up two runs and three hits with three walks and five strikeouts.

The bullpen had been performing so well without Bray, Nick Masset and Ryan Madson, that it was a tough call to send down anybody. To make room for Bray on the 25-man roster, the Reds optioned right-handed reliever J.J. Hoover to Triple-A Louisville. Hoover, a rookie,  performed well with a 3.00 ERA in 17 appearances with eight walks and 19 strikeouts over 18 innings.

The Reds will now how three lefty’s in the bullpen, Bray, Sean Marshall and Aroldis Chapman.

Bray, who is 29 years old, has a career mark of 13-12 with an ERA of 3.67 and 181 strikeouts. He has also played for the Washington Nationals. Bray has been with the Reds since 2006.

Reds activate Cairo from DL; send Harris to Triple-AAA Louisville


Willie Harris on Sunday traveled from Pittsburgh with the rest of his teammates as they headed to Milwaukee. But on Monday, instead of getting ready to play the Brewers, Harris had to get ready to board another plane and head towards Louisville where the Bats are playing the Norfolk Tides. That’s the life of a MLB utilityman, majors one day, minors another or released.

The move was needed to make room for Miguel Cairo’s activation from the 15-day disabled list on Monday, the Reds sent Willie Harris outright to Triple-A Louisville.

Harris, who has 72 hours to report to Louisville, was batting .086 (3-for-35) on the season. His main job was to be the only left-handed pitch-hitter. He was signed to a Minor League deal in January and made the team out of Spring Training.

The 38-year-old Cairo went on the DL on April 17 because of a strained left hamstring. He played three games on a rehab assignment at Class A Dayton, going 0-for-10 with two strikeouts. Cairo is very valuable as a utilityman as he can play 3B, SS, 2B, 1B and the outfield if need be.

Another player who was in the mix to go back to Louisville, Todd Frazier, who is right-handed and was called up from Louisville after Cairo went to the disabled list, did not have to worry about a demotion after batting .389 (7-for-18) in his 10 games.

With Harris gone, the Reds have no left-handed  hitters off the bench.

Reds beat Milwaukee, 8-4; NL Central lead at 7; Chapman debuts & Votto stars

There were so many positives in Tuesday night’s Reds 8-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds now lead the NL Central by 7 games over slumping St. Louis; they won without the services of Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce; and the Aroldis Chapman’s long-anticpated major league debut.

Cincinnati wrapped up the best August by any team and was able to move 7 games up on the Cardinals, who lost to Houston 3-0. The Reds haven’t led by as many games since 1995, the last time they reached the playoffs.

Joey Votto drove in three runs with a pair of doubles off Milwaukee’s ace pitcher, Yovani Gallardo who drops to 11-7. The slugging first baseman now has 97 on the season. Sam LeCure, another one of the Reds young arms, picked up the win in relief of Aaron Harang, who struggled in his return from back spasms. Le Cure is now 2-4.

The crowd was happy to see Number 54, Aroldis Chapman jogging to the mound from the bullpen to pitch the top of the eighth with the Reds up 8-3.

There was no nervousness from Chapman as the 22-year-old made quick work of the Brewers batters. Jonathan Lucroy saw pitches of 98 mph, 102 and 86 and struck out. Chapman got Craig Counsell and pinch-hitter Carlos Gomez to ground out on weak ground balls. The tall lefty was between 98-102 with all three hitters.


* In order to put Aaron Harang and Aroldis Chapman on the active roster, Cincinnati put outfielder Laynce Nix on the 15-day DL  with a sprained left ankle, which he hurt August 23 in San Francisco.  They optioned right-handed pitcher Edinson Volquez to Class-A Dayton to make at least two starts. They say he has to work out his delivery problems.
