Cueto (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. The move is purely a procedural one, as Cueto is done for the year and potentially all of next year after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He was removed from the 40-man roster in order to make room for Casey Kelly, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move.
Cueto (elbow) will require Tommy John surgery, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Cueto was lifted from his latest start after experiencing pain in his throwing elbow, and after further evaluation, surgery was deemed necessary. This will effectively end his 2018 campaign, and he'll likely miss most if not all of the 2019 season rehabbing. The 32-year-old made nine starts for the Giants this year, posting a 3.23 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 38:13 K:BB over 53 innings.
Manager Bruce Bochy stated there's a "strong possibility" that Cueto (elbow) will need Tommy John surgery, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. If Cueto decides to undergo surgery on his throwing elbow, he'll miss the remainder of the 2018 campaign, and likely the entire 2019 season while rehabbing. The next step for Cueto figures to be decided within the next few days.
Cueto was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a right elbow strain, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. As expected, Cueto will require another stint on the disabled list after feeling pain in his throwing elbow during his last start against Milwaukee on Saturday. It appears likely that he'll miss more than the minimum, given he was shelved for two months with an elbow strain earlier in the season, though more news on his status should be revealed following further evaluation.
Cueto (elbow) is expected to return to the disabled list, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Cueto felt pain in his elbow during his most recent start against Milwaukee on Saturday and was throwing with decreased velocity. He had been poor over four starts since returning in early July from a two-month absence due to an elbow strain, posting a 6.86 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP. His next steps will become clearer after a reevaluation in the next few days, but surgery remains a possibility.
