The Giants have a plan to improve for next year, and it’s not good

Or they’re not telling the real plan to USA Today because why would they do that, but let’s treat this like it’s real Yesterday, USA Today, the nation’s foremost newspaper that you get for free in every hotel, published a story about the poor season the Giants are having and what they’re going to do about it next year. After a long section about how maybe this is all just a hangover from the loss in last year’s Division Series, the article gets to this money quote: They still believe that Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija, Matt Moore and Blach can be a formidable...

Updates On 2018 Club Options Over Pitchers

We checked in last night on the status of some position players whose teams will be deciding on club options at the end of the year. This morning, we’ll do the same with regard to hurlers. As before, we aren’t considering player options/opt-outs (like Johnny Cueto and the Giants) or mutual options (as with Mike…

The Royals created the power bullpen model. Now they're just hoping they can get by.

In the summer of 2015, when the Kansas City Royals thought they had a championship-caliber club, anchored by one of the most brutally efficient bullpens in recent memory, they made a pair of splashy deadline trades designed to push them over the top. In came ace right-hander Johnny Cueto and super-utility...

Giants say Cueto has no significant arm injury

Giants say Cueto has no significant arm injury The medical prognosis on Johnny Cueto's pitching arm: Cueto had a similar injury in 2015 and missed one start with the Reds. Cueto reported forearm tightness, which can be a sign of minor injuries as well as something dire, such as a torn elbow ligament that would require Tommy John surgery. Head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner is expected to provide a more detailed report to the media later Tuesday afternoon. Henry Schulman is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

What does flexor strain mean for Johnny Cueto's future in San Francisco?

OAKLAND The Giants were able to scoop Johnny Cueto up two years ago in part because other teams had concerns about his pitching elbow. Another round of minor discomfort might keep Cueto in San Francisco long term.The Giants got good news Tuesday, when a round of tests showed that Cueto has only a minor flexor strain. There is no damage to the ligament, so the Giants have dodged baseballs most brutal bullet.

Johnny Cueto’s latest injury means he’ll probably be on the Giants for a long time

Johnny Cueto’s latest injury means he’ll probably be on the Giants for a long time

Johnny Cueto was going to opt out of his contract unless he was hurt or had a brutal season. And here we are. In 2020, the evenest of all even years, we might look back at this moment and appreciate how it changed the direction of the franchise for the better. Johnny Cueto left a minor-league rehab game with forearm tightness, which are words that will almost guarantee he won’t get a four-year, $79 million contract on the open market. Which means he’ll probably be a Giants pitcher next year. Though that doesn’t mean he’ll actually pitch. See, forearm tightness is often shorthand...

More injury news. Great! Well, no use messing around. There’s a story in today’s minor lines and, of course, it’s a bad one. Cueto left his start in San Jose because of forearm tightness. This season is the worst.— Andrew Baggarly (@extrabaggs) August 1, 2017 Bochy didn't want to speculate on nature or severity of Cueto's forearm issue. He'll go for tests. Remember: he can opt out. Giants cannot.— Andrew Baggarly (@extrabaggs) August 1, 2017 Without speculating but just taking note: Johnny Cueto’s contract still being on the books next year is likely to severely hamper...

Johnny Cueto Leaves Rehab Start With Forearm Tightness

Giants righty Johnny Cueto had been working back from a blister problem when he took the hill for a rehab start last night. But he ended up leaving halfway through his scheduled outing with forearm tightness, as Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. At this point, it’s too soon to know the prognosis.…
