The San Francisco Giants have agreed to a contract with right-handed pitcher Johnny Cueto, who spent last year in a Royals uniform. The Giants will pay Cueto $130 million over six years if he sticks around — he can opt out after year two.
The 29-year-old Cueto has been a MLB starter for eight seasons and has a lifetime 3.30 ERA. Cueto is a workhorse, pitching more innings last season than all but two other major league hurlers, Corey Kluber and David Price. The Giants will be a good bet to win most nights, with a rotation featuring Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Chris Heston, Jeff Samardzija and now Cueto. Cueto’s lucrative deal will take him to age 36, when only the rarest specimens of non-knuckleballers thrive.
