After almost being traded last night to Kansas City before the trade fell apart, the Reds and Royals struck a deal today for ace Johnny Cueto.

This is a big time get for the Royals, as they gear up to make another run at the World Series. They already have a very talented bullpen, but they lacked a true front line starter. Cueto will be that guy for them through the rest of the year.
Here is what the Reds got in return for Cueto
UPDATE: Royals officially acquire Johnny Cueto from Reds, as well as cash considerations for LHP Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb & Cody Reed.
