      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Ready to resume throwing

      Johnny Cueto (elbow) will begin a throwing program Monday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.After a shutdown period, Cueto is now ready to take the initial steps on what will be a long road back to a big-league mound. He will start with flat-ground throwing before progressing to bullpen sessions, then live sessions and ultimately a minor-league rehab assignment. He was diagnosed with a right elbow sprain earlier this month and was moved to the 60-day DL, making him ineligible to return until late June at the earliest.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Transferred to 60-day DL

      Johnny Cueto (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Cueto's initial timetable after suffering a sprained right elbow was set at 6-to-8 weeks, though it's now guaranteed that he will be out until June 29, at the earliest. The 32-year-old went down with this injury following his start against the Dodgers on April 28, which happened to be his first outing all year where Cueto gave up multiple runs. Keep an eye on this situation as a surgical procedure is still on the table in the event that his elbow doesn't respond to rehab. In a corresponding move, the San Francisco Giants promoted Jose Valdez from Triple-A Sacramento.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Out six weeks with elbow sprain

      Johnny Cueto was diagnosed with a sprained right elbow and is expected to miss at least six weeks, Jon Heyman of reports.Given the circumstances, this news comes as a relief to Cueto, who landed on the disabled list last week with right elbow inflammation. It was initially feared that he might require Tommy John surgery after seeking a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, but Dr. Andrews confirmed that Cueto is dealing with a sprain rather than a significant tear, so he'll opt to rest before beginning his rehab with the hope of avoiding surgery. Barring any setbacks, the 32-year-old could be back in the fold sometime during the second half of June; though seeing as surgery is still an option if his elbow doesn't respond as well as expected to the non-surgical route, the San Francisco Giants will proceed cautiously with him. In the meantime, Andrew Suarez should continue to fill in for the right-hander in the rotation. Cueto held an impressive 0.84 ERA across five starts (32 innings) before landing on the shelf.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Set to see Dr. James Andrews

      Johnny Cueto will get a second and third opinion on his elbow, one of which will likely come from Dr. James Andrews, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.Dr. Andrews is practically synonymous with "Tommy John surgery," so this looks rather worrisome. Cueto's initial diagnosis was elbow inflammation. As Baggarly reports, all options are on the table. The exact nature of Cueto's injury should become more clear after he receives those additional opinions.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Hits DL with elbow inflammation

      The San Francisco Giants placed Johnny Cueto on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with right elbow inflammation, Chris Haft of reports.Cueto (3-0) had been spectacular in five starts this season with a 0.84 ERA and 0.69 WHIP over 32 innings, recording 26 strikeouts and issuing only two walks. Elbow inflammation is a potentially scary initial diagnosis for the 32-year-old, who has been an anchor in the Giants' starting rotation in the absence of Madison Bumgarner (hand). Andrew Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to start Tuesday night, while Cueto currently has no timetable for his return.

The right-hander will take a sparkling 0.84 ERA into his next outing Friday in Atlanta.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Tosses six scoreless innings

      Johnny Cueto (2-0) didn't allow a run on two hits and two walks over six innings while striking out seven as he picked up win No. 2 on Sunday against the Angels.Cueto has allowed just one run in four starts this season, sporting a remarkable 0.35 ERA and 0.65 WHIP across 26 innings.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Dominates Diamondbacks in first start back from DL

      Johnny Cueto (ankle) got a hard-luck no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, giving up just two hits over seven innings, striking out 11 and walking none in San Francisco's 1-0 defeat to Arizona.Cueto was dominant in his first start coming off the disabled list and was unlucky to be on the short end of what turned out to be the pitching duel of the season so far with counterpart Patrick Corbin. Even though it was disappointing to see him not get a win after posting such a brilliant stat line, it's still been an extremely encouraging start to the season for Cueto, who has given up just one earned run in his first 20 innings after a disappointing campaign last year that saw him post a 4.52 ERA. He certainly looks poised for a bounce-back and he'll carry a brilliant 0.45 ERA and 0.65 WHIP into his next start against the Angels on Sunday.
