Giants' Johnny Cueto 'in line' to start Opening Day

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Johnny Cueto is "definitely in line" to start Opening Day, Giants manager Gabe Kapler said.

What It Means:

These comments came before Cueto was tagged for 5 runs on 9 hits in just 1 2/3 innings in Cactus League play on Tuesday. The 34-year-old now owns a 12.79 ERA and 2.37 WHIP over 6 1/3 innings this spring. He's returning from Tommy John surgery and has made just 13 appearances over the last two seasons.

numberFire's models project Cueto for a 4.19 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with 118 strikeouts and 49 walks this season.
