FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: SOURCE INDICATES JOHNNY CUETO COULD BE A ROYAL BY END OF DAY SUNDAY

A source connected to the Cincinnati Reds front office indicated that ace SP Johnny Cueto could be a Kansas City Royal "by the end of the day Sunday."  Cueto comes off a gem of a start Saturday night when he tossed eight shutout innings to prove that he is in fact healthy.  That reignited trade talk between the Royals and Reds, with the former being the lead dog all along for the free-agent-to-be Cueto's services. 

Analysis:  This seems like a foregone conclusion as the Royals want that ace they lost when James Shields ended up with the San Diego Padres and Cueto surely fits that bill.  Cueto has been one of the truly dominant pitchers in the game over the last five years, putting up an ERA under 3.00 during that span.  Stay tuned.
