Reds activate Cueto from DL

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - The Cincinnati Reds activated pitcher Johnny Cueto from the 15-day disabled list. He started and earned the win in Monday's game against the New York Mets.

Cueto had been sidelined with a strained right lat. He last started April 13 in a 3-1 loss against Pittsburgh, but on Monday the right-hander gave up just three hits and as many runs while walking four batters in a 4-3 win. He fanned eight over five innings.

The right-handed pitcher is 2-0 with a 3.22 ERA in four starts this season. He is 62-46 in 153 games over six seasons with the Reds.

He made two rehab starts for Single-A Dayton and was 1-1 with a 1.13 ERA over eight innings pitches.

The Reds also optioned infielder Neftali Soto to Triple-A Louisville.
