Johnny Cueto to Have Tommy John Surgery


San Francisco Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto will have Tommy John surgery Thursday, effectively ending his 2018 campaign. The surgery will likely force the 32-year-old to miss a large portion of the 2019 season as well.

The right-hander was having a solid season with a 3-2 record, 3.23 ERA, and 38 strikeouts in 53 innings pitched. However, he is winless since returning from a two month stint on the disabled list with an elbow injury. Cueto missed time last year with injuries, while his numbers also took a dip from his 2016 campaign in which he was 18-5, posted a 2.79 ERA, and was named an All-Star for the second time in his career.

The Giants are currently 55-54 and 4th in the NL West, the club is 5 games back from the Diamondbacks for the second Wild-card spot.
