Giants' Johnny Cueto: Unavailable for first round of WBC

Cueto (personal) is expected to report to the Giants by Friday and will not pitch in the first round of the World Baseball Classic, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

Cueto has been attending to family matters in the Dominican Republic, which has delayed his arrival at spring training. Although Cueto will miss the opening round of the WBC, the possibility still exists that he could pitch in later rounds of the tournament. During his absence from camp, he's continued to stay active, so there's no reason to believe he'll be unavailable at the start of the 2017 campaign.
