Mon, 04 May 2015 09:44:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto hasn't had contract extension talks with the team since opening day, and he will become a free agent after the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has a 2.72 ERA and two wins in six starts this year despite allowing five earned runs in six innings to the Atlanta Braves yesterday. He'll continue to be a strong FantasyScore pitching option every five days

Reds | Johnny Cueto off to great start

Sun, 03 May 2015 07:28:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto has the best WHIP in the National League and has a chance to take the MLB leads in both innings pitched and strikeouts when he pitches Sunday, May 3, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) is starting his contract year the right way. Cueto's 1.95 ERA is more than a full run better than his xFIP, but with a strikeout rate of 9.24 K/9, Cueto is a dominant FantasyScore pitcher in matchups just like this one.

Reds | Johnny Cueto tops Brew Crew again

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 18:43:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto allowed two earned runs, three hits and no walks while striking out six batters over eight innings Tuesday, April 28, against the Milwaukee Brewers, evening his record at 2-2.

Fantasy Tip: Both of Cueto's wins have come against Milwaukee. In fact, he is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA against the lowly Brewers, and 0-2 with a 2.14 ERA in his other three outings. He hasn't received much in the way of run support against anyone, so if he starts getting that he will be an even bigger bargain for FantasyScore owners at $8,700 (opr 17.4% of cap).

Cardinals | Michael Wacha beating up on aces

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:42:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha improved to 3-0 with a win Thursday, April 23, allowing one earned run on five hits in seven innings to best Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer. His victory over Scherzer followed a pair of wins over Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed five hits and just one earned run in each of his three starts this year, and he has yet to lose despite facing some tough competition. Needless to say, he makes a great starting option at FantasyScore right now regardless of who opposes him on the mound.

Reds | Johnny Cueto takes mound Saturday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 04:48:29 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto is on the hill Saturday, April 11, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) was strong in his first start of the season, with 10 strikeouts in a no-decision against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Last year Cueto was 1-2 against the Cardinals but had a 2.25 ERA and .186 opponents batting average. This is a favorable matchup for Cueto owners and one worth taking.

Reds | Johnny Cueto passes milestone

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 22:18:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto posted 10 strikeouts in a no-decision Monday, April 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, pushing his career total to 1,005. The strikeouts were his most in four opening day assignments, and two shy of his career best.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto allowed just four hits with one walk over seven scoreless innings to make him a huge FantasyScore stud at $8,200 (or 16.4% of cap). He'll toe the slab again Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals and their fifth starter Carlos Martinez in another favorable matchup.

Reds | Johnny Cueto starting opener

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 04:06:04 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto will start the Reds' opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) is well worth the price for this start. His record last year (20-9, 2.25 ERA) was spectacular, as were the 242 strikeouts and .194 opponents batting average. Pittsburgh was Cueto's big team last year, as he went 5-0 with a 1.76 ERA and two complete games.

Reds | Johnny Cueto extension not near

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 09:23:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto hasn't made any progress with the team in contract extension talks, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) is lined up to start on opening day against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has good history at home and against the Bucs in his career, so he should definitely be on the list of starters that you are picking from on opening day at FantasyScore.

Reds | Johnny Cueto returns to camp

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:39:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto returned to camp Thursday, March 26, after going to the Dominican Republic to be with his mother, who needed open-heart surgery. Cueto missed his scheduled start last Friday, but he feels he's on track for opening day. He was working out with the pitchers Thursday morning. Cueto will have two more spring starts before he faces the Pittsburgh Pirates April 6 in Cincinnati. Manager Bryan Price said Cueto will likely throw in a minor league game in his next outing.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) should be good to go for opening day against the Bucs. Cueto has been very solid in his career at Cincinnati, even though it's known as more of a pitcher's park. He also has dominated Pittsburgh in his career to the tune of a 2.21 ERA. It's safe to say that he'll be a top-flight option at FantasyScore to kick off the MLB season.
