Cueto to miss start
The man who has the inside track of starting opening day, Johnny Cueto has been scratched from his start today against the Texas Rangers. Cueto has some irritation behind his right shoulder around the scapula. He could have pitched today but they decided to rest him. He will pitch on the 25th possibly in a minor league game.
Mat latos came out of his 2 inning stint yesterday in good shape. He will pitch again in a minor league game on the 24th (3 innings or around 45 pitches) and again on the 29th.
Homer Bailey who is dealing with a groin strain will throw a bullpen session on Friday and is scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Brewers.
Jonathon Broxton who the Reds need more than ever now that Chapman is gone, will throw a bullpen session on Friday and will also pitch Sunday in the game against Milwaukee.
