Cueto (elbow) is expected to start pitching in rehab games in early August with the Giants' AZL affiliate, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Cueto has been slowly ramping up his throwing in bullpen sessions over the last few months as he makes his way back from August 2018 Tommy John surgery, and he may already have advanced to facing live hitters, per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. If he can avoid any setbacks, the 33-year-old will have a chance to rejoin the Giants for the final month of the season.
Cueto (elbow) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Cueto is now mixing in all his pitches and is throwing two bullpen sessions per week as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery. The 33-year-old will attempt to progress to live batting practice in July and move to rehab games in August with the ultimate goal of returning to the majors in September.
Cueto (elbow) will throw a bullpen session over the weekend, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Cueto completed his first bullpen session at the end of April, though the Giants continue to take it easy with the right-hander. He remains on track to return from the injured list by September if all goes according to plan.
Cueto (elbow) completed a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday and hopes to rejoin the Giants in September, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Cueto threw about 25 fastballs but is expected to mix in his other pitches in the coming weeks. Plenty can change between now and September, but to this point the 33-year-old is progressing well in his recovery from Tommy John surgery.
Cueto (elbow) completed a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Cueto resumed throwing in February but Tuesday marked his first bullpen session since undergoing Tommy John surgery last August. The 33-year-old still has significant work to do in his rehab and has an outside chance to return in the latter stages of this season.
Cueto threw from 45 feet Monday, his first time throwing since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Tommy John surgery carries a recovery time of at least one year, leaving Cueto with an outside chance at best to return in some capacity late in the season. He seems to be making the expected progress so far, but the right-hander is still a long ways off.
Cueto (elbow) will begin playing catch next week, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
The veteran hurler underwent Tommy John surgery in August of 2018, but it seems like he's making good progress in his rehab program. Cueto is still on track to miss most if not all of the 2019 season, though his timetable for return will likely become clearer once he gets back onto the mound.
Cueto (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
The Giants needed a 40-man roster spot for new acquisition Trevor Gott, and Cueto was the easy choice to make room. The veteran starter won't be available until the end of 2019 at the earliest after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, so he'll simply move to the 60-day injured list to give San Francisco more roster flexibility for the beginning of the season.
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.
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 Giants could also promote someone from the Triple-A rotation.
Cueto threw seven innings Sunday, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks in the 6-5 loss to Oakland. He gave up three home runs and struck out three in the no-decision.
In three starts since returning from the disabled list with an elbow injury, Cueto has allowed 12 earned runs in just 17 innings and coughed up seven home runs. His ERA is skyrocketed to 2.76 from the 0.84 he owned prior to the DL stint. He'll look to turn things around against Milwaukee on Saturday.
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.
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.
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.
Cueto (elbow) was activated from the 60-day disabled list ahead of Thursday's scheduled start against St. Louis, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
As expected, Cueto will make his first start since April 28 after recovering from an elbow sprain. He needed just two minor-league rehab appearances despite missing nearly two months, so it's likely that Cueto will be on a pitch count after working just four innings during his last rehab start at Triple-A Sacramento: he allowed no runs on four hits and one walk while fanning six. In a corresponding move, Kelby Tomlinson was sent to Triple-A.
Cueto (elbow) will be reinstated from the DL on Thursday prior to his start against the Cardinals, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Cueto wound up requiring just two minor-league rehab starts with Triple-A Sacramento after spending nearly two months on the disabled list with an elbow injury. His second outing with Sacramento lasted four innings, so expect to see him on some sort of pitch count during his first game back with the Giants. With Cueto returning, Derek Holland will transition to a bullpen role.
