Cueto unlikely to pitch in All-Star Game if chosen
SAN FRANCISCO -- Reds ace Johnny Cueto, who started on Thursday against the Giants, is an excellent bet to make the National League All-Star team when rosters are revealed on Sunday.

But it's highly unlikely that Cueto could pitch in the game at Kansas City, held July 10 (8 ET on FOX). His turn to pitch for the Reds will come up at San Diego on the final Sunday before the All-Star break.

"We'd like him to pitch that first game coming back after the All-Star Game against the Cardinals [on July 13]," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Most of the time, before you start the All-Star Game, you have to make it first. Johnny Cueto is a good pitcher."
