Giants manager Gabe Kapler confirmed that Cueto (lat) would be activated from the 10-day injured list over the weekend to start Sunday's game against the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The Giants have previously earmarked this upcoming Sunday as Cueto's most likely return date when he was shut down with the Grade 1 right lat strain in mid-April, so his rehab program appears to have unfolded as expected. Since Cueto hasn't pitched in a game in three weeks, the Giants could be conservative with his workload Sunday, so fantasy managers may want to hold off on activating him right away. Cueto's impending return will likely result in Aaron Sanchez or Logan Webb losing out on a starting role, assuming Kapler doesn't choose to expand the rotation to six men.
Cueto (lat) won't be able to return until May 9 at the earliest, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Cueto was originally expected to miss two starts when he landed on the injured list with a lat strain in mid-April. His new timeline means he'll miss at least four. He's expected to advance to live batting practice next week.
Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday that he expects Cueto (lat) to miss a third turn through the rotation during the upcoming week, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Logan Webb is making his second turn in place of Cueto on Sunday against the Marlins, and he'll likely be in store for another start next weekend in San Diego while Cueto remains on the shelf. Cueto isn't believed to have suffered a setback in his recovery from a lat strain since landing on the injured list April 15, but he's not far enough along in his recovery program for the Giants to pinpoint a clear target date for his return.
Cueto (lat) is expected to miss two starts, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Cueto left his Wednesday start against the Reds with the injury, which was revealed to be a Grade 1 lat strain following further tests. The given timeline means he'll probably return either in the last few days of April or in early May. Logan Webb will fill in for him in the rotation in the meantime.
Cueto was diagnosed with a Grade 1 lat strain and was placed on the injured list Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Cueto was removed early from his start Wednesday with the injury, and it was presumed he would land on the injured list. That news became official, though it is positive that he was diagnosed with a low-level strain. A corresponding move will be made by the team Friday, though Logan Webb is a strong candidate to re-join the rotation in Cueto's absence.
