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.

Cincinnati Reds utility infielder Miguel Cairo, who is on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring, wasn’t activated when eligible on Tuesday, nor was he activated on Wednesday.

The plan is to have Cairo go on a Minor League rehab assignment before he can be activated. He’ll be heading to Dayton to play for the Single-A Dragons.

Cairo was on the field early Tuesday before the Cubs game and ran the bases with no trouble.

The Reds depart Friday for a six-game road trip through Pittsburgh and Milwaukee and Cairo could join the team. He is a valuable player off the bench as a pinch-hitter and can play third, short, second and first base.

Cairo, who has been with the Reds since 2010, has a career average of .267 with 40 homers, 1,016 hits and 381 RBI’s.
