As the Cincinnati Reds make their push for the postseason, they may soon have their ace back.  Johnny Cueto, who is still recovering from a lat strain, threw off a mound yesterday.  Cueto threw a bullpen session and reportedly looked great.  It's a big step toward getting back on the active roster. C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer says Cueto has adjusted his delivery.  This may be in an attempt to prevent lat and oblique injuries.  Cueto suffered an oblique strain during the postseason last year, and now he has this slow-healing lat injury.  An adjustment to his delivery may put less strain on his torso. Cueto is 4-2 with a 3.33 ERA this season.  He has only been able to make nine starts, though.  After finishing last season with a 19-9 record and a 2.78 ERA, the Reds were excited to see what he could do this year.  Unfortunately, injuries have gotten the best of Cueto, and now the club will have to hope he can get back in shape for the stretch run. Cincinnati currently holds the second Wild Card spot in the National League.  They trail the first place Pittsburgh Pirates by 3.5 games in the division.  It will be a three-team race in the National League Central, so the Reds will need all the help they can get.  That includes Johnny Cueto.
