Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto has been named as the team's opening day starter, and he'll face the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, March 31. He'll be followed in the rotation by SPs Tony Cingrani, Homer Bailey, Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon. Cueto pitched deep into his outing on the minor league side Tuesday, March 25, after being scratched from his previous outing with shoulder and back soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Cueto owners can rest assured that his injury scare last week was nothing serious. Get him in your lineups for Week 1 of the MLB season.

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake (abdomen) has been scratched from this scheduled Grapefruit League spring start Sunday, March 2, due to an abdominal issue. SP Brett Marshall will make the start in his place. "He did something we didn't know about, about a month before spring training, just doing his workout," manager Bryan Price said Saturday, March 1. "It's a little bit of a strain. It's not causing any problem with his bullpens, with his lifting or any of his throwing stuff. He was out playing long toss before his last bullpen and he felt it a little bit. We've just been really cautious with it."

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker said SP Tony Cingrani will move to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Johnny Cueto (shoulder) is back from the disabled list and Mike Leake has pitched outstanding of late, leaving no room for Cingrani. You can hold onto him in deep NL-leagues and keeper formats, but otherwise he's not worth taking up space on your roster.

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is scheduled to make his next start against the New York Mets Tuesday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: Even though Tony Cingrani has pitched well since being called up, he's not guaranteed to stick around when Johnny Cueto (lat) comes off the disabled list next week. Dusty Baker is usually loyal to those with experience, which Leake has over Cingrani.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (lat) is set to return from the disabled list and start Monday, May 20, which is the date for SP Mike Leake's next start. However, The Cincinnati Enquirer's John Fay doesn't think that necessarily means Leake will be bumped from the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Make plans to put Cueto back on your active fantasy baseball roster. Although Tony Cingrani (shoulder) had his start pushed back due to minor arm troubles, Leake still seems like the likely candidate to be bumped from the rotation. We won't know for sure until next week, though, so stay tuned.
