Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - The Cincinnati Reds activated pitcher Johnny Cueto from the 15-day disabled list in time to make the start in Sunday's series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Cueto had been sidelined with a strained right shoulder since his last start on May 31.

Prior to this latest setback, he was 3-0 with a 2.17 earned run average in six starts.

To make room on the roster, the Reds optioned pitcher Pedro Villarreal to Triple-A Louisville.
