Johnny Cueto (blisters) placed on the DL

Johnny Cueto was placed on the 10-day disabled list with blisters on Saturday afternoon.

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.

Johnny Cueto lasts just four innings

Johnny Cueto allowed three runs over just four innings on Friday night in San Diego. He also allowed six hits, three walks, and struck out five.

Fantasy Impact

It was certainly a disappointing outing from the "ace" right-hander. Cueto was pulled after just 82 pitches because he wasn't effective against one of the worst offenses in baseball. He now has a 4.59 ERA this year and is running out of time to turn things around.

Johnny Cueto hit hard on Sunday

Johnny Cueto had an afternoon to forget on Sunday, allowing six run on six hits over six innings. Cueto also walked six and struck out just two.

Fantasy Impact

Perhaps he would have been better off waiting until after the All-Star break to return from his inner ear infection. However, the July trade candidate finishes the first half with an underwhelming 4.51 ERA.

Johnny Cueto to start Sunday

Johnny Cueto will start for the Giants on Sunday versus the Marlins after being scratched on Thursday with an inner ear infection.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto is ready to roll and should be started in all fantasy formats. He's been a little disappointing this year, with a 4.26 ERA through 17 starts.

Johnny Cueto scratched on Thursday

Johnny Cueto was scratched from Thursday's start versus the Tigers. Chris Stratton will start in his place.

Fantasy Impact

Cueto is out with an inner ear infection. It's not yet known whether he will make a start over the weekend. If not he won't pitch again until after the All-Star break.
