Bochy assuming Cueto will be back next season

SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants are 40 games back in the NL West for the first time since 1943, but they still have six weeks of baseball to play.

They hope to have Johnny Cueto back for most of it – and the way Bruce Bochy talked about the rehabbing right-hander, the club is assuming they will have Cueto for four more years, too.

Cueto came out of Tuesday’s three-inning rehab start for Triple-A Sacramento with no issues, and Bochy said he hoped the right-hander would require just one more minor league tuneup before he rejoins the rotation.

What does he want to see from Cueto down the stretch?

“Just be a healthy Johnny,” Bochy said. “Just be who he is. We’re not going to grind him out in these games. We just want to get him back on track with his good command, so next year he has a good feeling with where he’s at.”
