Giants’ Cueto gives Bochy timetable for his arrival in camp

Manager Bruce Bochy had what he called a “great talk” with pitcher Johnny Cueto, who told Bochy by phone he expects to report to spring training this weekend. Cueto has remained home in the Dominican Republic tending to his ill father, Domingo. Bochy and Cueto did not settle the issue of the pitcher’s participation in the World Baseball Classic but expects a decision in the next day or so. Cueto’s readiness to pitch competitively in early March and his desire to stay close to his father will factor into the decision.

Former top picks need breakout year to kick Cincinnati's rebuild into gear

Former top picks need breakout year to kick Cincinnati's rebuild into gear

The team won 97 regular season games, finally won a pair of playoff games, and were an ill-timed Johnny Cueto injury away from potentially making a deep playoff run. The results of that year are fun to look at now, and will be fun to look back on for the rest of this franchise’s history. Today, though, it’s a look at how that team got to 97 wins that may be of more pertinence, since it was a model of how a franchise of any market size...

Every four years, Major League Baseball throws an odd wrench into spring training by holding the World Baseball Classic. Part way through the spring, dozens of players pack their gear and bid farewell to their teammates for as long as 16 days to play for their countries. The three who will plucked for the tournament - Buster Posey, Brandon Crawford and Johnny Cueto - are critical to the Giants' hopes of winning another World Series. Crawford played through shoulder pain, with Bochy often lamenting how much he had to push the shortstop. Last spring training, the Giants introduced him...
