Johnny Cueto impressive in Tuesday no-decision

Johnny Cueto allowed three runs in six innings Tuesday against Rockies with six strikeouts.

Johnny Cueto (blisters) placed on the DL

Fantasy Impact

This explains why he went just four innings on Friday night versus the Padres. The timing of the injury is rough for the Giants, since it's unlikely he will be traded before the deadline now. Cueto has an opt out in his contract after this season, but has been so disappointing that at this point it would be a surprise if he used it.
