“We’ll see what we can get out of him,” Reds manager Dusty Baker told reporters. “It’s worth a try, because he’s Johnny Cueto. The more we get out of him (Monday) and the more we get out of him the next time, maybe who knows what he’ll be ready for come playoff time.
After falling this afternoon and losing two of three at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Reds are looking to make a push here in the final month of the regular season.
Cueto has been on the disabled list three separate times this year and looks to help the Reds rotation as much as possible. He's replacing Tony Cingrani in the rotation and will be followed by Mike Leake and Greg Reynolds in games two and three.
Following the loss, the Reds now stand three and a half games out of first place. They do still hold four and a half game lead in the second wildcard spot.
