Giants RHP Johnny Cueto (elbow) isn't expected to start throwing for at least 10 more days.
Cueto is unlikely to return during the regular season at this point. Perhaps he is hoping/aiming for a deep postseason run by the Giants.
The Giants placed starting pitcher Johnny Cueto (elbow soreness) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Cueto has been mediocre at best this season for the Giants. He has seven wins and seven losses with a 4.09 earned run average to go with 95 strikeouts in 112.1 innings pitched on the season. You have much better options at your disposal if in need of starting pitching in your lineup.
RHP Johnny Cueto took the loss on Tuesday when he allowed six runs on 10 hits with two walks and one strikeout over 3 2/3 innings as the Giants lost to the Brewers 6-2.
Cueto was scratched from Monday's start and placed on the COVID-19 injured list before testing negative for the virus on Tuesday and being reactivated in time to make the start. It did not go well as evidenced by his box score. He was hit around for six runs on 10 hits in under four innings. The veteran right-hander now owns a 4.09 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 112 1/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the Dodgers at home in his next start.
The Giants placed RHP Johnny Cueto on the injured list.
No injury designation was given, which suggests this is COVID-19 related. It's unclear when Cueto will return.
RHP Johnny Cueto took a no-decision on Wednesday when he surrendered one unearned run on five hits with three walks and two strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings as the Giants took down the Mets 3-2.
Cueto was placed on the IL earlier this month with a flexor strain in his throwing arm so this was his first start since being activated. He did issue three walks but didn't allow an earned run a Kris Bryant throwing error led to Jonathan Villar scoring in the fifth inning. The veteran hurler now owns a 3.73 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 94:27 K/BB ratio over 108 2/3 innings (20 starts). He'll face the Brewers at home in his next turn.
