Cueto is your immediate target, as he's going to break camp with the big club and should be added sometime opening week.
If Kershaw joins Price in the minors to open the season, neither one is likely to be added. I wouldn't expect either of the latter two to get called up before June, but keeper-leaguers will want to monitor those situations and be ready to act.
In keeper leagues he probably should be added immediately. He's a little younger than other elite pitching prospects but I think he's probably the first to make an impact in the majors because he seems to demonstrate better control and he's in a more favorable situation than some of the others.
Price is probably next on the list, but like I mentioned, he's been injured. He also has a lot of competition with McGee and Davis both trying to get the call up, even Niemann is still hanging around. I'd be tempted to grab him now if the league were deep enough...if it's a somewhat shallow league I'd probably monitor his progress and look to add him in a few months before his name gets hot again.
Bailey has apparently looked pretty awful. I'll be watching to see if his control gets better this year in the minors and if it does, I'll consider snagging him at the end of the season. I probably won't be adding him at all truthfully. He's been with the Reds organization for like 3+ years now and he hasn't really demonstrated much progress. He has "bust" written all over him, imo.
Morales probably should be owned now in keepers, but I'd be hesitant to start him until he proves he can be a little more consistent. He could be a good source of Ks in NL only leagues, but is a pretty risky bet in mixed leagues
