The Cincinnati Reds appear almost certain to trade starting pitcher Johnny Cueto before the trade dealine, however his landing spot is still up for debate.
Count the Kansas City Royals among the teams interested in the veteran right right hander reports Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Rival executives say the Royals are pushing hard for Cueto, but I wonder at some point if the OF needs will trump desire for another SP.
