2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cueto had a season to forget in 2017. The two-time All-Star struggled while pitching with a blister for decent chunk of the first half and had developed three blisters on his throwing hand by the time he landed on the disabled list in July. Cueto then suffered a flexor strain while rehabbing, with that setback costing him an additional month. He wasn't much better upon his return, but Cueto faced the Rockies twice as well as the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in September. The right-hander turns 32 in February, has nearly 1,800 major-league innings on his arm and just experienced a big uptick in walks (8.2 percent) and homers (1.34 HR/9). The blisters probably hurt his performance, but there's no guarantee those issues will go away. He will be back in San Francisco after choosing not to opt out this winter. Read Past Outlooks
