From C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto threw 35 pitches off a mound Tuesday at Great American Ball Park and looked “impressive.”

Cueto has been on the shelf since departing his June 28 start against the Rangers with a severely-strained right lat muscle. He is aiming to rejoin the Cincinnati starting rotation at some point later this month.
