Johnny Cueto is done for the year

A player being “out for the rest of the year” is not too terribly important anymore given that there are less than two weeks left in the season. Still, let’s pretend like we give a crap, OK?

Today’s player is Johnny Cueto of the Cincinnati Reds. He strained his right lat muscle during last night’s game against the Cubs. Though not a major injury, the Reds have nothing left to play for so there’s No sense in rushing him back and risking a compensation injury or something.

Overall, a great year for Cueto. While his record was only 9-5, he had a 2.31 ERA in 24 starts and looks to be growing quite nicely into a front-of-the-rotation starter.

    Well, this might have some relevance. Somebody correct me if I am wrong but because he finished the season with 156 innings, he will not be eligible to win the ERA title.

      Correct.

      This lets the big dogs duke it out for the title instead.

    Probably strained the muscle working on his kicking motion. Bye bye Cung Fu Coward Cueto.
