Found August 27, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Johnny Cueto
TEAMS: Cincinnati Reds
Johnny Cueto has been on the disabled list three times this season, but he hadn't traveled with the team to continue his rehab, until now. As reported by Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, the reason that Cueto has joined the team on the road is so he can work with pitching coaches Bryan Price and Mack Jenkins, head trainer Paul Lessard and strength coach Matt Krause.  "He's been out at Beacon Medical while we've been on the road. He's been working hard," Price said. "Now that he's throwing ... we can really monitor how he's throwing, the duration and things of that nature." Cueto has been making steady progress in this throwing sessions, but there is no way to know yet at this time if Cueto can be ready for a Reds post season run later in September.  "I really don't know. He thinks so. That's where it starts," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It would be big, whether we got him back starting or relieving." Although Cueto is a starter, the team is keeping an open mind as to how they will use him, should he be able to return. It all depends on the progress he makes. The longer it takes for Cueto to be ready for a rehab assignment, the less likely he will come back this season as a starting pitcher. Cueto is 4-2 with a 3.33 earned run average in 48 2/3 innings pitched. Last year, he was 19-9 with a 2.78 earned run average with 170 strikeouts in 217 innings.  He is 16 games over .500 for his career at 64-48, with an earned run average of 3.56
