Most Recent Player News

The San Francisco Giants signed right-handed pitcher Johnny Cueto to a six-year, $130 million contract.

What It Means:

The deal runs through 2021 and will carry a club option for 2022. It also contains an opt-out clause after the second year. While Cueto pitched to an underwhelming 4.76 ERA in 13 starts for the Royals last season, he held a 2.62 mark in 19 starts with the Reds prior to being moved at the trade deadline. Indeed, the last time he held an ERA higher than 3.50 in the NL was back in 2010, his third season in the bigs. Should he stay with the Giants for all six years of the contract, it'll run through his age-35 season.

Cueto finished 19th among pitchers in Wins Above Replacement among starting pitchers at 4.1, which falls exactly in line with our metrics. Cueto's 2.29 nERD also ranked 19th, despite a 3.78 xFIP and a decrease in his strikeout percentage to 20.3 percent (league average is 20.4).
