      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Moves to 60-day disabled list

      Johnny 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.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: To undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday

      Johnny 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 San Francisco Giants this year, posting a 3.23 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 38:13 K:BB over 53 innings.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Heads to DL

      Johnny 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.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Return to DL expected

      Johnny 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.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Will see doctors regarding elbow pain

      Johnny Cueto, who gave up four runs in four innings against the Brewers on Saturday, will meet with doctors Sunday regarding constant pain in his throwing elbow and is unlikely to make his next start, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.This is the same pain he felt before landing on the disabled list. His fastball was sitting in the mid-80s in the first inning against Milwaukee, so it's no surprise that he was hit hard (eight hits, zero walks, zero strikeouts). At the very least, Cueto should be considered out indefinitely, and surgery could end up being a possibility. Ty Blach, who replaced Cueto in Saturday's game, could slot into the rotation, as could Chris Stratton, but the San Francisco Giants could also promote someone from the Triple-A rotation.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Fans seven over five innings

      Johnny Cueto did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's extra-innings win over the Cubs, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven over five innings.Cueto was staked out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, but he yielded a pair of home runs and saw the bullpen fail to protect a one-run lead to leave with him a no-decision. The righty showed improvement in his second start back from the disabled list, whiffing seven batters over the five frames, but his command was hit-and-miss as he also walked three, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. He's now allowed eight runs over 10 innings in the two starts back from a lengthy layoff, and will head into the All-Star break with a 2.36 ERA over 42 innings.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Start bumped to Wednesday

      Johnny Cueto will start Wednesday against the Cubs instead of Tuesday as originally expected, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.The reason for the switch is not entirely clear, though Cueto has made just one start since returning from a two-month layoff with an elbow injury, so an extra day of rest certainly couldn't hurt. Derek Holland gets the start Tuesday.

      Giants' Johnny Cueto: Rebounds after tough opening frame

      Johnny Cueto (3-1) allowed five earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cardinals.The final line wasn't pretty for Cueto in his first start since April 28, but he allowed four hits, one walk and four of his five earned runs in his first inning of work. From there, his only blemish was a solo home run surrendered to Matt Carpenter in the second inning. While he didn't get back to his full workload, he managed to throw 76 pitches, a decent effort for his first start in over two months. His velocity will be worth monitoring as his fastball velocity was down nearly 1.5 mph from his season average, though that shouldn't induce panic in the first start after such a long layoff.
