Giants | Johnny Cueto goes the distance

Wed, 18 May 2016 23:00:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto allowed a run on four hits and two walks while fanning eight in a complete-game win over the San Diego Padres Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto has had two bad outings in his nine starts, and his 2.70 ERA would be 1.31 if you eliminated those. He has a 1.10 WHIP and a 8.24 K/9. He's a superb SP2 and is worth DFS consideration each time his turn comes up.

Giants | Johnny Cueto continues to shine

Fri, 13 May 2016 05:17:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto won for the fifth time in six decisions on Thursday, May 12, in a 4-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He allowed two runs on eight hits with nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: So far Cueto has lived up to his $130 million contract signed in the offseason. Of course there is still plenty of time for things to change, but so far so good. Cueto has gone at least seven innings in all but one of his outings, so durability remains a positive. He is highly recommended in all fantasy formats.

Giants | Johnny Cueto roughed up in Cincy

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:27:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto allowed six earned runs, seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Cincinnati Reds, his former team, Monday, May 2. It was his first time back in Cincinnati since he was traded from the team last summer. He needed 46 pitches to make it through the third inning, his most pitches in a single inning since June 6, 2009.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto might have been more amped up than usual, and sometimes that can end up with bad results. He might have simply had an off night, too. Either way, he remains a tremendous fantasy option and you can chalk this up as just one poor outing.

Giants | Johnny Cueto spins seven-inning win

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 05:47:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over 7 1/3 innings during the Giants' 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto has won all three of his starts this season and owns a 3.38 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP while returning 19 punchouts through 21 1/3 innings. He projects to continue being a fringe ace or solid No. 2 arm for your fantasy rotation. His next start is scheduled against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, April 21, and while it might not be the best spot to utilize him in daily contests, Cueto remains a sound option in seasonal leagues.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig enjoys rare day off

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:55:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto on Saturday, April 16. OF Trayce Thompson will occupy his spot in right field and bat eighth. 2B Chase Utley and SS Corey Seager are both back in the lineup after a day off and hitting first and second, respectively. C Yasmani Grandal will make his third appearance of the season behind the plate and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig was due a rest after playing in each of the Dodgers' first 11 games, while Utley returns to the lineup against a right-hander after the Dodgers faced southpaws the last two days. Seager should be plugged right back into all lineups, while Grandal should probably be left on benches for now after coming off the disabled list earlier this week. On a side note, DFS players will be happy to know the red-hot Enrique Hernandez, who homered twice off Madison Bumgarner on Friday, will remain in the lineup.

Giants | Johnny Cueto feels fine

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:44:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto (knee, back) said he feels fine and will do his normal between-starts bullpen session after taking a fall in his last outing Sunday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto's last start against the Dodgers was a failure after he allowed six runs and 10 hits in seven innings. He should be fine to make his next start at the Colorado Rockies, but that's an environment that should make you hesitant to rely on him.

Giants | Johnny Cueto good against Milwaukee

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 16:36:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto was 8-0 with a 2.16 ERA against the Milwaukee Brewers in his first 11 starts against them at home when he was with the Cincinnati Reds. However, he was 1-3 with a 4.19 ERA in seven starts against them on the road, where he faces them Tuesday, April 5, but he only pitched their once since 2012. Cueto has beaten the Brewers the last six times he's faced them.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto has been known to struggle on the road in his career, but this is a game in which you should trust him. The Brewers are a rebuilding squad and will often be the target of pitching streams in 2015. Trust Cueto and start him tonight.

Giants | Johnny Cueto should throw Sunday

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 11:27:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto (head) is expected to throw in the minors Sunday, March 20. The Giants can then keep him from pitching against the Colorado Rockies and will control his pitchers per inning.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Cueto has avoided serious injury to his head and should be good to go for his first start of the regular season. If Cueto can stay healthy with his new club, he has top-20 fantasy pitcher potential.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto will be just fine for the regular season opener, and he is a solid fantasy addition in the early to middle rounds on draft day.
