Back to DL for Cueto

Posted: Updated:

Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - After one of his best pitching performances of the season Johnny Cueto felt soreness in a lat muscle and is back on the disabled list.

Cueto pitched eight shutout innings in Pittsburgh over the weekend and the Reds waited until Wednesday to put him on the disabled list, calling up Pedro Villareal to start against the Rockies.

Cueto was on the disabled list from April 15th to May 19th with both a lat issue and an oblique strain.  Dusty Baker says Cueto's most recent setback is "the same but different."  Baker says he expects Cueto's rehab to be better this time, continuing to throw and hoping the muscle heals.
