Johnny Cueto dealing with blisters

Johnny Cueto is the latest starting pitcher to deal with blisters on his throwing hand. He told reporters that he's developed blisters on the middle and index fingers of his throwing hand.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto has been roughed up his last two times out. While this could certainly have to do with facing the Dodgers and then the Cubs in Wrigley, the blisters afford another reason for the rough stretch. On the season he's posted an ERA and WHIP of 4.64 and 1.23 with 60 strikeouts in 64 innings.

Johnny Cueto falls to 4-4

Johnny Cueto pitched six innings of four-run ball Tuesday night against the Cubs, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out eight.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto had to match up with Clayton Kershaw in his last start and on Tuesday night fell victim to Jon Lester's dominance. However, Cueto now posts a disappointing 4.64 ERA on the season. His track record says he is simply too good to give up on, but fantasy owners may need to start readjusting their expectations.

Johnny Cueto loses duel with Kershaw

Johnny Cueto took the loss and fell to 4-3 Wednesday afternoon against the Dodgers, giving up five runs on eight hits over six innings. Cueto also walked one and struck out six.

Fantasy Impact

Clayton Kershaw was brilliant in this one so the Giants offense could do nothing to help Cueto out in this one. His 4.50 ERA is a little higher than we would expect at this point of the year, but ultimately Cueto should be fine. Don't sell low on him.

Johnny Cueto throws eight innings

Johnny Cueto threw eight innings of two-run ball against the Reds Friday night, allowing five hits and three walks while striking out six. The Giants would go on to win 3-2 in 17 innings.

Fantasy Impact

The marathon game meant a no-decision for Cueto, who lowered his ERA to 4.15. For as talented as Cueto is that number should continue to fall.

Johnny Cueto falls to 4-2 on the year

Johnny Cueto took the loss Sunday afternoon against the Reds, giving up four runs (two earned) spread across seven innings. Cueto also gave up six hits, walked one, and struck out 10.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto's ERA for the year now sits at 4.50, which isn't great, but likely means he is due for some positive regression. He remains a must start pitcher moving forward.
