KEY GAME INFORMATION
CINCINNATI: HITTING: 2B BRANDON PHILLIPS sparked the Reds offense after moving to the top of the order. But his free-swinging makes him a bad fit there. SS ZACK COZART played in only 11 games for the Reds before wrecking his non-throwing elbow, but it was still enough to convince the team they'd seen enough of PAUL JANISH in the starting role. 1B JOEY VOTTO keeps punishing pitchers. OF JAY BRUCE is in his gawky, teenage phase, but he's already emerged as a major power source. OF DREW STUBBS must cut down on his MLB-leading 206 strikeouts. He's out of the leadoff spot now, but those whiffs don't play well anywhere in the lineup. OF CHRIS HEISEY should get the starting nod in left now that Yonder Alonso is out of the picture. 3B SCOTT ROLEN is a permanent health question mark. His backup, JUAN FRANCISCO, swings for the fences. C DEVIN MESORACO is the most hyped catching prospect since Matt Wieters. RYAN HANIGAN will split squatting responsibilities with him.
STARTING PITCHING: Considered a source of strength entering the 2011 campaign, the Reds rotation directly caused their undoing. The first step toward a remedy was trading for MAT LATOS, who began 2011 slow and got stronger as the year went on. The 24-year-old threw at least six innings with 5+ K in 16 of his final 17 starts (2.94 ERA). But that was in a much more pitcher-friendly environment. He has a decent career road ERA (3.57), and Cincy will surely give him much better run support than he received in San Diego. Last year's pitching problems began with BRONSON ARROYO, who gave up more home runs in a season than any pitcher in this millennium. He allowed more HR (46) than walks (45). JOHNNY CUETO was the one big bright spot; he hasn't maintained the strikeout rates he flashed early in his career, but he's All-Star caliber. HOMER BAILEY was a disappointment, going 9-7 with a 4.43 ERA. MIKE LEAKE actually pitched pretty well after he got his first taste of the minors to get his mechanics worked out.
RELIEF PITCHING: With Francisco Cordero flying the coop, and newcomer RYAN MADSON lost for the season with Tommy John Surgery, Cincinnati will use a closer-by-committee approach. The Reds gave up three players, including starter Travis Wood, to acquire SEAN MARSHALL, who should fit in nicely as a set-up man who's tough on both right-and left-handed batters. AROLDIS CHAPMAN is listed as the main set-up man for Marshall, but he missed out on winter ball and could be too raw to trust in the ninth inning. LOGAN ONDRUSEK is also capable of being a decent closer, with a big fastball.
NY METS: HITTING: The Mets will be moving in the fences at Citi Field by as much as 12 feet and reducing the height to eight feet, making the park more homer-friendly. The loss of Jose Reyes and his NL-leading average at the top of the order weakens an already subpar lineup. 3B DAVID WRIGHT is coming off his worst season (.254 BA, 14 HR, 61 RBI) and could be traded at the July 31 deadline. New OF ANDRES TORRES provides very little at the plate (.221 BA, .312 OBP), but the future is bright for youngsters OF LUCAS DUDA (.852 OPS) and 1B IKE DAVIS (.926 OPS), who missed most of 2011 with an ankle injury. OF JASON BAY (.245 BA) continues to be a colossal bust. SS RUBEN TEJADA will be tasked with trying to replace Reyes. The 22-year-old made great strides last year, batting .319 after August 1. DANIEL MURPHY hit .320 last year, and will start at second, possibly losing AB in a platoon with JUSTIN TURNER. C JOSH THOLE hits well enough to be an above-average starting catcher.
STARTING PITCHING: With the fences moving forward at Citi Field, the entire Mets pitching staff takes a hit. JOHAN SANTANA will be ready for Opening Day, but it's hard to have much faith that he'll remain healthy for an entire season. His velocity on his fastball is not what it used to be, topping out in the high-80's. MIKE PELFREY benefitted most from the pitcher-friendly ballpark with serviceable home numbers (3.94 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) and atrocious road statistics (5.49 ERA, 1.56 WHIP). JONATHON NIESE was also much better at Citi Field (3.54 ERA) than he was on the road (5.33 ERA), but he posted 14 games of 6+ strikeouts for the second straight season. DILLON GEE began the season 7-0 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, but closed the 2011 campaign with a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in his final 17 starts. Knuckle-balling R.A. DICKEY posted a second straight solid season with New York, notching a 3.28 ERA and a solid 1.23 WHIP. At age 37, he hopes to keep his pitches dancing in the smaller home ballpark.
RELIEF PITCHING: Two former Blue Jays late-innings relievers, FRANK FRANCISCO and JON RAUCH, were signed from Toronto to pitch at the back of the bullpen. Francisco will likely get first crack at the ninth-inning role, saving 17 games last year and keeping his strikeout rate above one per inning for the fourth straight year. Rauch is an imposing figure at 6-foot-11, but he posted a 1.35 WHIP and paltry 6.2 strikeout rate last year. But 52 saves since 2008 makes him a worthy candidate for ninth-inning duty. RAMON RAMIREZ was part of the Andres Torres/Angel Pagan trade and he should be a valuable set-up man. He had a strong two-year stint with San Francisco, posting a 2.07 ERA and 1.09 WHIP.

*Reds-Mets Preview* ===================

Cincinnati (26-17) at New York (16-24), 7:10 p.m. EDT

The Cincinnati Reds own one of the best starters' ERAs in baseball, and now they're welcoming back Johnny Cueto.

The right-hander will be activated off the disabled list to make his first start in more than a month when the Reds open a three-game road set against the New York Mets on Monday night.

Cincinnati starters have pitched to an ERA of 3.20, with 14 2-3 straight scoreless innings heading into this contest.

Cueto (1-0, 2.60 ERA) hasn't started since April 13 due to a strained right lat. He yielded one run over eight innings in two rehab starts at Class A Dayton.

The injury-plagued pitcher says his injury is similar to the one he had in 2011, when he changed his delivery.

"I'm going to have to see what's going on," Cueto told the Reds' official website. "If that continues to happen, I'm going to have to make some changes in my mechanics."

Cueto had been 0-3 with a 6.58 ERA in five starts versus the Mets (17-24) before yielding one run over seven innings of a 3-1 victory June 17, his lone start of last season against them.

Rick Ankiel is 7 for 16 against Cueto while Marlon Byrd is 6 for 11. Ankiel has gone 6 for 20 with two homers in six games since joining the Mets last Monday.

Cincinnati went 6-2 against New York last year as Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier combined for seven homers and 14 RBIs - 10 by Bruce.

Bruce enters with two notable hitting streaks of 10 games, batting .390 with four homers and 12 RBIs during an overall run and .349 with 11 RBIs during another on the road.

Joey Votto is also surging, going 17 for 33 in an eight-game hit streak and 28 for 56 during a 14-game run on the road. He leads the major leagues with 37 walks and an on-base percentage of .473, with teammate Shin-Soo Choo not far behind in those departments (31 walks, .463 OBP).

Votto is 5 for 9 against the Mets' Shaun Marcum (0-4, 6.75), who has dropped all four starts this season after losing four times in 21 outings with Milwaukee in 2012.

Marcum has limited the Reds to a .213 average in four starts, but he's allowed opponents to bat .341 this year. The right-hander, who visited a chiropractor the day before his last outing Wednesday in St. Louis, has failed to last past the fifth inning three times.

The Mets have scored more than four runs once in their last 13 home games, with three or fewer in seven straight. Daniel Murphy went 14 for 28 during a 3-4 road trip, delivering a go-ahead solo homer in the eighth inning of a 4-3 win over the Cubs on Sunday.

"I feel like I'm taking better swings," Murphy said. "I feel better with my swing. I'm also getting better pitches to hit."

The Reds entered the weekend as winners of six straight before losing two of three in Philadelphia. Closer Aroldis Chapman allowed back-to-back solo homers to blow his second straight save chance in a 3-2 defeat Sunday.

"An unfortunate ending, stunning, but that's the game," manager Dusty Baker said.
