In the middle of the controversy that involves the San Francisco Giants with their last decision. One of its hill stars has given great news to the team.
According to Alex Simon of News21, Johhny Cueto struck out five batters in two innings of work in which he marked his first outing.
Johnny Cueto struck out 5 hitters in 2 innings of work in his first rehab start. He threw 19 of 21 pitches for strikes, including 7 swings & misses. His only two balls were on 0-2 pitches. Allowed one baserunner on a weak high grounder to short.— Alex Simon (@AlexSimonSports) August 5, 2019
In the same way he reported that the Dominican pitcher recorded 19 of 21 pitches in the form of a strike, including 7 swings.
His only ball pitches were in the 0-2 count, in addition to allowing a runner to advance.
Cueto is recovering from Tommy John surgery in the 2018 season, which means that his debut has been a breakthrough and we will surely see him debut this season in MLB.
His arrival would be a great addition for the Giants looking to stay competitive and reach the postseason.
