Johnny Cueto gives up three homers in final start

Johnny Cueto took the loss on Friday against the Dodgers, giving up five runs on five hits in just two innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto struck out two and walked one. The killer for him was allowing three homers, including back-to-back solo shots to Cody Bellinger and Corey Seager. Cueto returned from Tommy John this month and finished with a 5.06 ERA. He showed some promise in his earlier starts, however, and is a name to remember for 2020.
