  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Throws eight innings in win

    Cueto (5-5) earned the win Monday, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk over eight innings against Houston. He struck out three.

    The veteran righty held the Astros in check Monday to earn his fifth win of the season and ninth straight quality start. His 2.78 ERA this season has been a welcome surprise for Chicago as, if it holds, it will be the first time that he has finished a season with an ERA below 4.00 in a full season since 2016. Cueto will look to keep things rolling in his next scheduled start against Cleveland this weekend.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Quality start in no-decision

    Cueto pitched six innings, surrendering three runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out four in Wednesday's loss to the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.

    Cueto was not his sharpest Wednesday, allowing the Royals to reach base 10 times, but he was able to hang in there for a quality start. The right-hander allowed one run in the bottom of the third before two more runs came around to score in the sixth frame. Cueto has now produced eight straight quality starts, though he has allowed 20 hits over 14 innings in his last two starts. He now owns a 2.91 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 68 strikeouts over 102 frames in 16 outings this season.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Goes the distance in loss

    Cueto (4-5) took the loss during Thursday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Rangers, allowing three runs on 11 hits with four strikeouts in eight innings.

    Cueto kept the ball in the zone all game with 76 of 106 pitches going for strikes and issued zero walks for the third time in 15 turns, though the 11 hits are the most the 36-year-old has surrendered. Still, he induced an impressive 12 swinging strikes and was only done in by a rough seventh inning that featured two runs and four singles with two failing to leave the infield. Despite the loss, Cueto still features a 2.91 ERA and 1.19 WHIP and lines up to face off against Kansas City midweek.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Submits another quality start

    Cueto didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 3-2 win against the Athletics, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk with two strikeouts in seven innings.

    Cueto was tagged for two solo shots early but limited the damage thereafter -- retiring 10 of the final 11 batters he faced -- and Chicago eventually rallied to erase a potential loss. The 36-year-old has now posted six straight quality starts, and he's gone 2-0 with a 2.48 ERA across 40 innings in that span, though he's struck out a combined two batters over his last two starts. Cueto carries a 2.86 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into his next start, scheduled to come midweek against Texas.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Shaky against Guardians

    Cueto tossed seven innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk in the Game 1 loss to the Guardians in Saturday's doubleheader. He did not factor into the decision.

    Cueto skated in and out of danger Saturday, allowing eight hits for the first time since May 28 versus the Cubs. The Guardians were able to scratch across all four runs in the fourth frame, all of which came with one out in the inning. Thanks to one of the runs being unearned, Cueto's streak of quality starts is up to five. He's now produced a 2.00 ERA with 13 strikeouts over 27 innings in four starts in July.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Evens record with win

    Cueto (4-4) earned the win over Minnesota on Thursday, pitching six innings and allowing one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out five batters.

    The outing got off to a rocky start for Cueto, as he left the bases loaded in the first inning and surrendered a run on three hits in the second. The veteran settled down from there, allowing just three more baserunners and ending the appearance with a flourish by striking out the side in the sixth frame. Cueto has now notched a quality start in nine of his 12 outings this season and in each of his last four. He's enjoying a resurgent campaign with a 2.80 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 58:20 K:BB over 74 innings.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Turns in vintage start

    Cueto (3-4) allowed five hits and no walks while striking out five across eight innings to earn the win Saturday against the Tigers.

    Cueto limited the Tigers to only one-extra base hit on the strength of inducing 12 groundball outs. It was his longest outing of the season, and he has now turned in six quality starts across his last eight starts. Cueto has been an effective member of the White Sox's rotation, maintaining a 2.91 ERA and a 53:18 K:BB across 68 frames on the season.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Walks five Monday

    Cueto allowed two runs on five hits and five walks while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Monday.

    Considering Cueto walked a season-high five batters, he was lucky to come away with his third quality start in his last four outings. The veteran threw 57 of 93 pitches for strikes, and he's completed at least six innings in eight of his 10 appearances this year. For the season, he owns a 3.30 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 48:18 K:BB across 60 innings. Cueto will look to regain his control this weekend in a home start versus the Tigers.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Picks up second win

    Cueto (2-4) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings, earning the win Tuesday over the Angels.

    Cueto was plagued by the long ball in the third inning, allowing solo home runs to Andrew Velazquez, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. The White Sox's offense came to life in the fifth, and Cueto was able to avoid any further damage to pick up his second win of the year. Both of his victories have come in his last three starts. The veteran right-hander has a 3.33 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 45:13 K:BB in 54 innings across nine appearances (eight starts) overall. Cueto is projected for a home start versus the Twins next week.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: No support in loss

    Cueto (1-4) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings, taking the loss versus the Orioles on Thursday.

    Cueto was cruising until the fourth inning, when Adley Rutschman tagged him for a two-run home run. It was Rutschman who added a third run to Cueto's line with an RBI double in the sixth. While it wasn't a particularly sharp outing for the 36-year-old right-hander, he can't win if he doesn't get run support. He's allowed nine runs in 23.1 innings in his last four appearances, and he's got a solid 3.19 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 40:12 K:BB in 48 innings overall. Cueto is in line for a road start versus the Angels next week.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Earns first win

    Cueto (1-3) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out five over seven shutout innings, earning the win Saturday over the Astros.

    Cueto's last outing was in a long-relief appearance, but he was back in the rotation as expected Saturday. He turned in his longest start of the season, and it was also one of his most dominant as he gave up almost nothing to the Astros. The 36-year-old had given up at least three runs in each of his last four outings before Saturday's gem. He's pitched to a 2.95 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 33:11 K:BB across 42.2 innings in seven games overall. He's lined up for a favorable home start versus the Orioles next week.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Called upon in long relief

    Cueto allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four in five innings of relief Sunday against Texas. He did not factor into the decision in the team's loss.

    Cueto was scheduled to start Monday in Detroit but came on in the third inning after Michael Kopech left with a knee injury. He got off to a rocky start, allowing a single on his first pitch and a two-run homer to Eli White two pitches later. After another run scored in the fourth, he retired 10 of the last 11 batters he faced. The 36-year-old has amassed a 3.53 ERA and 1.21 WHIP across 35.2 innings in six appearances since joining Chicago in May. He's expected to make his next start next weekend in Houston.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Quality start Wednesday

    Cueto (0-3) was charged with the loss Wednesday after he pitched six innings, surrendering three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five versus the Dodgers.

    Cueto was hurt by the long ball in this one, giving up a two-run homer to Will Smith in the first frame and a solo shot to Cody Bellinger in the second. It was his fifth consecutive start where he tossed at least six innings to open the season, but after starting the year with 12 scoreless frames, he's allowed 11 runs over 18.2 innings in his last three outings. Cueto's season numbers now stand at a 3.23 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 24 punchouts over 30.2 innings in five starts. He'll look to get into the win column his next time on the mound, which tentatively lines up with him facing the Tigers on Monday.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Hit hard in loss

    Cueto (0-2) picked up the loss, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits while striking out five in six innings of an 8-3 defeat Thursday in Toronto.

    Five of the seven hits against Cueto went for extra bases, including a two-run shot by Teoscar Hernandez. The home run was the first he's allowed in his 24.2 innings this season. The veteran has gone six innings or more in each of his four starts. After not allowing a run in his first two outings, he's allowed nine runs (eight earned) in his last two times on the mound. He lines up for a tough matchup with the Dodgers next week.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Tagged for five runs against Cubs

    Cueto (0-1) took the loss against the Cubs on Saturday, allowing five runs on nine hits and three walks over 6.2 innings while striking out two.

    Cueto entered the contest having tossed 12 scoreless frames over his first two starts, but he couldn't extend the strong stretch against the crosstown rival Cubs. The veteran hurler gave up three runs over the first two innings and surrendered another pair in the seventh before he was lifted with two outs. Cueto also struck out a season-low two batters and tallied a season-high three walks. He'll look to get in the win column for the first time this season in his next start, which is lined up to come in Toronto late next week.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Six more scoreless innings

    Cueto didn't factor into the decision during a 3-1 victory over the Yankees in Game 1 of a doubleheader Sunday, allowing six hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six scoreless innings.

    After escaping a two-on, one-out jam in the first inning, Cueto cruised through the next five frames and was in line for his first win until New York tied the game in the eighth. Through two starts with Chicago, Cueto has fired 12 scoreless innings while surrendering only 10 baserunners along with 12 strikeouts. The 36-year-old will look to keep the momentum rolling in his next start, projected to come over the weekend against the Cubs.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Second start coming Sunday

    Cueto is scheduled to start the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Yankees in New York.

    The White Sox initially planned to have Cueto make his second start with the team Saturday, but he ended up being pushed back a day in the schedule as a result of Friday's postponement. Cueto will start the first game of the twin bill Sunday, while Michael Kopech takes the hill in Game 2 for the Pale Hose.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Starting Saturday

    Cueto is the probable pitcher for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

    He will start on normal rest after stifling the Royals' offense Monday, but he will have a much tougher task against a Yankees offense that has a 120 wRC+ this season against right-handed pitching at home. It's unclear if the White Sox will go with a six-man rotation in the short term, but at least one pitcher will get bumped from the mix when Lance Lynn (knee) returns in June.

  • White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Second start coming Sunday

    Cueto is listed as the White Sox's starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Yankees in New York.

    The White Sox could have turned to Dylan Cease to take the hill for Sunday's game on his normal four days' rest, but Cueto will instead get a two-start week after he turned in an impressive debut Monday's win in Kansas City. Though he was saddled with a no-decision, Cueto shut out the Royals over six innings and struck out seven while allowing only four baserunners. He'll draw a much tougher matchup for the second leg of the two step, as the Yankees offense has produced an MLB-best .331 wOBA this season, which includes a .337 mark at Yankee Stadium.
