CINCINNATI -- Reds ace Johnny Cueto reported no issues the day after he threw 50 pitches over three innings in a rehab start for Class A Dayton on Thursday.

"I feel happy. I feel good," Cueto said via translator Tomas Vera.

Cueto gave up one run on four hits, walked none and struck out four.

The Reds placed Cueto on the 15-day disabled list on April 15 with a strained right lat. He was set to begin a rehab assignment last week when he felt soreness in his right oblique. He rested for a few more days before he resumed throwing.

Cueto is slated to pitch again for Dayton on Tuesday.

"I think I need another outing, and that's what we'll do," Cueto said. "And after that, God willing, I will be activated."
