Johnny Cueto (elbow) could return to Giants in September

Giants manager Bruce Bochy says Johnny Cueto (elbow) has a chance to return before the end of the season.

Fantasy Impact

The benefit of Cueto pitching this year would be for him to have something to build off heading into 2020. If anything, it likely won't be more than a handful of starts. Still, it's nice to hear his rehab is progressing nicely.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) throws first bullpen since surgery

Johnny Cueto (elbow) threw his first bullpen on Tuesday since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto underwent surgery last August and there's a chance we don't see him again until 2020. He is under contract with the Giants through 2021.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) targeting a September 2019 return

Johnny Cueto (elbow) is targeting a September 2019 return from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto underwent the procedure in August so there's no guarantee he'll pitch at all in 2019. However, it sounds like the veteran right-hander is hoping to get some innings under his belt to get back into the swing of things as opposed to waiting until March 2020. Cueto is obviously off the fantasy radar right now.

Johnny Cueto to have Tommy John Surgery on Thursday

The San Francisco Giants announced today that pitcher Johnny Cueto will undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow. Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the procedure at the Kerlin Jobe clinic in Los Angeles.

Fantasy Impact

This is the worst case scenario for Cueto and means he will miss the rest of this season and most, if not all, of the 2019 season. He made nine starts for the Giants this year, posting a 3.23 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) placed on disabled list

San Francisco Giants starter Johnny Cueto has been placed on the disabled list, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. He had a recurrence of elbow pain recently and visited doctors earlier on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto already missed a significant amount of time with elbow pain earlier in the season, and a recurrence of that pain is not a good sign. He will now be placed on the 10-day disabled list, and it is a safe assumption that he will need to miss more than the required minimum. Monitor his status over the next two weeks for updates, but expect to look elsewhere for an impact starter down the stretch in fantasy.
