The Reds righthander will have his next start pushed back at least two days.
The Reds' Johnny Cueto has been one of the top starters in the National League this season, posting a 2.39 ERA and 1.155 WHIP in 18 starts; he's one of the biggest reasons the Reds currently are tied for first place in the NL Central. He was going to have a start on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball against the Cardinals... but now that won't happen:
#Reds Johnny Cueto, scratched from Sunday's start against StL with a blister, is now scheduled to start Tuesday vs. Dbacks— ctrent (@ctrent) July 15, 2012
Blisters can be difficult things -- while that tweet says Cueto's start is going to be pushed back just two days, other pitchers have had to go on the disabled list when they wind up with blisters on their pitching hands.
