Johnny Cueto (elbow) throws a 45 pitch bullpen

Johnny Cueto (elbow) threw 45 pitches off of a bullpen mound on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

It's also encouraging to hear that Cueto threw as hard as he normally would before a game. The next step for him will either be another bullpen or facing live hitters. Last week manager Bruce Bochy said there's a chance Cueto could return by the end of June.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) could return before July 1

Johnny Cueto (elbow) felt so good throwing from 120 feet on Sunday that he did some light tossing off a mound.

Fantasy Impact

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said afterwards this means Cueto could return before the end of June. He has a ways to go, but as of now Cueto is slightly ahead of his rehab schedule. The current plan is now for him to throw a bullpen by next weekend. In five starts this year the 32-year-old has put up a 0.82 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP.

Johnny Cueto transferred to 60-day disabled list

The Giants transferred Johnny Cueto to the 60-day disabled list on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto got good news on his elbow earlier in the week when he learned he did not need Tommy John surgery, but he's still going to miss the majority of the season. He won't be eligible to return until early June 28 at the earliest but Bruce Bochy said that he expects Cueto to return around that date. He's performed well enough to be a DL-stash, without question, but owners need to make other arrangements for the next two months.

Johnny Cueto diagnosed with elbow strain, will not need Tommy John surgery

Dr. James Andrews evaluated Johnny Cueto's ailing elbow and determined that the right-hander has an elbow strain, not a tear, and recommends rest in lieu of elbow surgery, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman. Heyman adds that Cueto is out for the next six weeks.

Fantasy Impact

The worry when Cueto was headed for an opinion from Dr. James Andrews was that he had damage to his ulnar collateral ligament that would require Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for more than a year, so Monday's report from Heyman is just about the best that the Giants and fantasy owners could hope for. He is not out of the woods yet, and fantasy owners will have to do without him for at least the next month and a half, but things could be much worse.

Johnny Cueto to get second and third opinions on elbow

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.

Fantasy Impact

It is never a good sign when a pitcher goes to see Dr. Andrews. It usually means TJ surgery is in the future. But right now it's being called elbow inflammation and the Giants just maybe being cautious with their pitcher. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates on what happens after Cueto gets some opinions.
