No pain for Cueto after bullpen session

No pain for Cueto after bullpen session

ST. LOUIS -- Reds ace Johnny Cueto, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right lat, threw a 45-pitch bullpen session on Monday. It was his second time working off a mound since going on the DL.

"It was pretty good, no pain," Cueto said. "I threw my breaking ball, everything."

Cueto hoped to discuss going on a Minor League rehab assignment with pitching coach Bryan Price, though plans remained fluid for the time being.

"We'll have to see how he comes out of today," manager Dusty Baker said. "I have to talk to him first."

Cueto was eligible for activation for the first time on Monday, but that is unlikely to happen for a little while.
