The Cincinnati Reds recalled INF Henry X. Rodriguez from Triple-A Louisville Friday, June 7, and optioned SP Pedro Villarreal Louisville in a corresponding move. Rodriguez was hitting .279 with three home runs and 26 RBIs with Louisville. Villarreal allowed 10 hits and six runs in only 3 2/3 innings against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, June 5.
Fantasy Tip: Tony Cingrani wasn't on turn to start Wednesday evening. The Reds are expected to call him up for Johnny Cueto's (lat) next turn in the rotation. However, Cueto is expected to return soon, so Cingrani's stint in the rotation might be much shorter than his initial turn earlier this year.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (lat) is back on the disabled list, but manager Dusty Baker said Cueto's injury isn't as serious as the one that forced him to the DL earlier this year. "It's the same thing," Baker said. "It's not nearly as serious. We've got to get rid of whatever's there. It's the injury he had before. He felt it a little bit after the game in Pittsburgh. He told us after the game he felt it again. It's not nearly as bad. Being cautious is the way to go at this thing." Baker said Cueto will only miss one or two starts.
Fantasy Tip: Because the Reds don't expect Cueto to be out as long this time around, they could stick with Pedro Villarreal in the rotation until then, unless he has an awful outing Wednesday. Tony Cingrani remains an option, but if it's just a start or two, the Reds may prefer to keep him down on the farm.

The Cincinnati Reds placed SP Johnny Cueto (lat) on the 15-day disabled list with a lat injury Wednesday, June 5.
Fantasy Tip: Cueto was scratched from his start Wednesday due to his setback. Cueto was on the DL earlier this year with the same injury. Pedro Villarreal will make a spot start tonight, but he probably won't be the option to replace Cueto in the rotation. Tony Cingrani performed nicely in Cueto's stead before, so it would make sense for the Reds to bring him back. Look to add Cingrani in all formats if that's the case.

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.
