Reds | Johnny Cueto scratched

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (undisclosed) was scratched from his start against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, June 5, and the team plans to recall P Pedro Villarreal to fill the spot. Villarreal will be making his first major league start. Cueto had gone 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in three starts since returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Cueto is dealing with an injury or if it is even related to the lat ailment that landed him on the DL earlier this year. Stay tuned. Villarreal is just a fill-in and shouldn't be considered in fantasy leagues.
