Cincinnati Reds Baseball

* The Cincinnati Reds have traded their ace Johnny Cueto to the Kansas City Royals, the teams confirmed Sunday. The Reds obtained left-handers Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb and Cody Reed in exchange for Cueto and cash considerations. The deal was announced during the third inning of Sunday's Houston Astros-Royals game. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported the two sides nearly reached an agreement Saturday night before Cueto took the mound against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, but one of the players due to move from the Royals to the Reds did not check out medically. The two sides continued working Sunday to finalize the trade. Cueto is 7-6 with a 2.62 ERA this season, with 120 strikeouts in 19 starts. He made the All-Star team for the second straight year.

On Saturday night, the right-hander pitched eight shutout innings in a 4-0 win against the Rockies, limiting them to four singles before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the ninth. Cueto finished second in Cy Young Award voting last year after going 20-9 with a 2.25 ERA. Finnegan, 22, was the Royals' top pick in last year's draft. He is 3-0 with a 2.96 ERA over 24 1/3 innings in 14 games out of the Kansas City bullpen this season. Lamb, 25, is 9-1 with a 2.67 ERA in 17 starts for Triple-A Omaha and Reed, 22, has a 2.53 ERA in 18 appearances (15 starts) between Class A and Double-A this season.

* On the field Sunday, the Reds took one on the chin with a 17-7 loss to the Colorado Rockies @ Coors Field. The Rockies took the series, 2 games to 1. Next up for Cincinnati is a 3 game series on the road to division rival St. Louis. First pitch tonight is slated for 8:15 PM.
