Giants' Johnny Cueto: Charged with second straight loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (4-3) allowed five runs (four earned) on nine hits and three walks while striking out two in 5.1 innings to take the loss against the Nationals on Sunday.

Cueto has now given up at least four runs in three of his last four starts, and the Nationals offense got hot early Sunday to put the right-hander in line for the loss. Across his first 10 starts of the season, the 35-year-old has posted a 4.00 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 54 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Phillies on Friday.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Struggles in loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (4-2) allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks on four strikeouts across 4.1 innings, taking the loss against the Cubs on Sunday.

Cueto surrendered a pair of long balls to Patrick Wisdom in the second and fourth innings. All three of his earned runs came off Wisdom's bat. The 35-year-old has previously done a great job limiting home runs, with just two through his first eight starts. He has a 3.70 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP with 40 strikeouts in 48.2 innings. His next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Nationals.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Dominant in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (4-1) allowed one run on five hits over seven innings Monday, striking out five and earning a win over the Angels.

After allowing an RBI groundout in the second inning, Cueto settled in and rolled through the next five innings without much resistance from the Angels' offense. It was his second-longest outing of the season and he lowered his ERA to 3.45 through 44.1 frames. He's allowed two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts. Cueto is projected to take the mound at home again this weekend against the Cubs.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Struggles but gets off hook
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto pitched five innings against Arizona on Wednesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

The right-hander did not have his best stuff in the contest, as he tied his season high by allowing eight hits while yielding four runs. He left the game with San Francisco in a four-run hole but was spared a loss when the offense scored five runs over the final four innings. Cueto has been decent but unspectacular this season, registering a 3.86 ERA and 31:6 K:BB across 37.1 innings. His next start is likely to come against the Angels early next week.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Cruises to third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (3-1) allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Thursday against the Reds.

Cueto got 13 runs of support prior to exiting the game after completing five innings. In three starts since returning from a lat injury May 9, Cueto has progressively ramped up his pitch count and managed 89 pitches Thursday. The outing was also a step forward from a results perspective, as he had surrendered seven earned runs in 7.1 innings across his last two outings. Cueto currently lines up to take the mound Wednesday at Arizona.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Settles for no-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 8-6 loss to the Pirates, allowing two runs on eight hits over 4.1 innings. He struck out two without walking a batter.

The veteran righty got handed an early lead and held the Bucs scoreless for four innings, but Cueto benefited from two double plays behind him and when his luck finally ran out in the fifth, he got the hook. It's the second straight start in which he's given up eight hits while failing to complete five innings. Cueto will take a 3.62 ERA and 22:5 K:BB through 27.1 innings into his next outing.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Shelled in first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (2-1) allowed five earned runs on eights hits and one walk while striking out two across three innings, taking the loss to the Padres on Sunday.

Cueto's first start coming off the 10-day injured list was not a friendly one. In three April starts, the 35-year-old held a 1.80 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with 18 strikeouts and did not allow any home runs. However, he was chased from Sunday's game after just three innings and surrendered home runs to Jake Cronenworth and Fernando Tatis in a four-run second inning. Cueto will look to get back on track in his next start, tentatively scheduled for Saturday in Pittsburgh.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Activated to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (lat) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday and will start against the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The 35-year-old has officially rejoined the active roster after spending the past three-plus weeks on the injured list. Cueto got off to a strong start in 2021 with a 1.80 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB through 20 innings, and he'll attempt to pick up where he left off now that's recovered from the lat strain.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Rejoining rotation Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler confirmed that Cueto (lat) would be activated from the 10-day injured list over the weekend to start Sunday's game against the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants have previously earmarked this upcoming Sunday as Cueto's most likely return date when he was shut down with the Grade 1 right lat strain in mid-April, so his rehab program appears to have unfolded as expected. Since Cueto hasn't pitched in a game in three weeks, the Giants could be conservative with his workload Sunday, so fantasy managers may want to hold off on activating him right away. Cueto's impending return will likely result in Aaron Sanchez or Logan Webb losing out on a starting role, assuming Kapler doesn't choose to expand the rotation to six men.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Won't return before May 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (lat) won't be able to return until May 9 at the earliest, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Cueto was originally expected to miss two starts when he landed on the injured list with a lat strain in mid-April. His new timeline means he'll miss at least four. He's expected to advance to live batting practice next week.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Slated to miss another turn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday that he expects Cueto (lat) to miss a third turn through the rotation during the upcoming week, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Logan Webb is making his second turn in place of Cueto on Sunday against the Marlins, and he'll likely be in store for another start next weekend in San Diego while Cueto remains on the shelf. Cueto isn't believed to have suffered a setback in his recovery from a lat strain since landing on the injured list April 15, but he's not far enough along in his recovery program for the Giants to pinpoint a clear target date for his return.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Expected to miss two starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (lat) is expected to miss two starts, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cueto left his Wednesday start against the Reds with the injury, which was revealed to be a Grade 1 lat strain following further tests. The given timeline means he'll probably return either in the last few days of April or in early May. Logan Webb will fill in for him in the rotation in the meantime.

April 15, 2021 10:40 PM
Giants' Johnny Cueto: Officially placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto was diagnosed with a Grade 1 lat strain and was placed on the injured list Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cueto was removed early from his start Wednesday with the injury, and it was presumed he would land on the injured list. That news became official, though it is positive that he was diagnosed with a low-level strain. A corresponding move will be made by the team Friday, though Logan Webb is a strong candidate to re-join the rotation in Cueto's absence.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Leaves with lat tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto left Wednesday's game against the Reds with lat tightness, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

He is being examined by the medical staff and there will likely be another update on his status within the next day. Cueto was cruising along before suffering the injury after throwing his second-hardest pitch of the day. He allowed three hits, zero walks and zero runs while striking out four over 5.2 innings and was only at 68 pitches when he exited.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto left Wednesday's game against the Reds with the trainer after 5.2 scoreless innings, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Cueto struck out four while allowing three hits and was putting together a gem before leaving after 68 pitches. He should be considered questionable to make his start Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Twirls gem Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (1-0) allowed one run on four hits and a walk and struck out seven in 8.2 innings in Friday's win over the Rockies.

Cueto nearly had a complete game, but he ran out of steam in the ninth after a stellar start. Jake McGee relieved him and retired the final batter. The 35-year-old Cueto is off to a strong start in 2021 with a 2.51 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB across 14.1 innings. The right-hander is expected to make his next start Wednesday against the Reds.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Solid effort in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto hurled 5.2 innings against Seattle on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.

Cueto threw 105 pitches (64 for strikes) in his season debut and racked up 17 swinging strikes. The veteran right-hander yielded a run in the second inning and two more in the third but settled down thereafter and exited the game with the score tied 3-3. Cueto's next scheduled start will come next Friday at home versus Colorado.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Opening as No. 2 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto will start the second game of the season April 2 at Seattle, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 35-year-old was in the mix to start Opening Day for San Francisco, but Kevin Gausman will instead receive the nod. Cueto had a 5.40 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 56:26 K:BB over 63.1 innings last season, and he's continued to struggled in Cactus League play with eight runs allowed over 7.1 innings.

March 21, 2021 07:48 PM
Giants' Johnny Cueto: Sim game on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto will throw five innings during a simulated game Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle

Cueto has struggled through three Cactus League starts this spring, as he's allowed eight runs on 12 hits and four walks while striking out nine over 7.1 innings. He'll have his longest throwing session so far during Monday's simulated game, while Kevin Gausman will take the mound during the team's spring game against the White Sox. Manager Gabe Kapler hasn't announced whether Cueto or Gausman will start for the Giants on Opening Day, but Kapler said Sunday that he could reach a decision in the next few days.

Giants' Johnny Cueto: Posts quality start despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cueto (2-3) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Padres. He gave up three runs on five hits and one walk while fanning four across 6.1 innings.

Cueto got off to a strong start this season but ends the year on the wrong foot, allowing three or more runs in each of his last three starts. The veteran posted a 6.65 ERA in four September appearances and ends the year with a career-worst 5.40 ERA in 63.1 innings across 12 starts. He has now posted an ERA above the 5.00 mark in each of his last two seasons.
