Still no throwing program for injured ace Cueto

SAN DIEGO -- Reds ace Johnny Cueto has yet to begin a throwing program as he recovers from a strained right lat muscle. The injury forced the right-hander on the 15-day disabled list for the third time this season on June 29, a day after he left a start against Texas early with the strain.

The Reds do not have a target date for when Cueto might begin throwing, and he did not accompany the team on its West Coast road trip that wraps up Wednesday against the Padres.

"He's doing strengthening stuff and building up endurance through exercise, but not throwing," Reds pitching coach Bryan Price said. "I think in his situation, there has to be a definite confidence amongst all medical and training staff that the injury itself is healed and that we can begin the throwing program without huge concern he's going to re-injure it."
