Description: Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto posted two scoreless innings Thursday.
Insight: Cueto is picking up where he left off. He posted career-highs with 20 wins, a 2.25 ERA and 242 Ks in 243 2/3 innings while finishing a distant second to Clayton Kershaw in the NL Cy Young race. Cueto can become a free agent after this season, so his name could come up at the trade deadline.

Description: The Reds exercised their $10 million club option on Johnny Cueto for the 2015 season according to Sports Nation.

Description: Reds starter Johnny Cueto pitched his worse start since May 20, allowing six runs in five and 2/3 innings and losing to the Cubs, 7-0, on Tuesday.

To put things in prespective, Cueto walked just seven batters in six starts during the month of May. He is still in the Cy Young conversation, even though Clayton Kershaw is the clear leader, at 18-9 with 2.33 ERA, 228 strikeouts and 0.98 WHIP.

Description: Cincinnati right-hander Johnny Cueto remained 3-2 despite allowing two runs on five hits in eight innings Friday against Colorado.
Insight: Cueto has a 1.43 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP this season, but he's received very little run support. The right-hander is obviously due for some regression -- he has a .160 BABIP and a 99.5 LOB% -- but he's still an excellent starter who has a 9.71 K/9 and a 2.29 BB/9.

Description: Cincinnati right-hander Johnny Cueto fired eight scoreless innings Sunday against Atlanta.
Insight: The Reds weren't able to score for Cueto (2-2, 1.15 ERA) so he had to settle for a no-decision. Cueto has allowed just one earned run in his last 30 innings pitched (0.30 ERA). He and Julio Teheran, the two starters featured today at Turner Field, might be the two hottest pitchers in baseball right now.
