Cueto's 'triple shimmy' motion dazzles Giants, MLB fans

Johnny Cueto looks to have his swagger back.

The Giants pitcher got the start in Friday's home opener against the Colorado Rockies, and showed off some amazing wiggle as he wound up to strike out C.J. Cron to close out his seventh scoreless inning at Oracle Park.

Safe to say, Giants and MLB fans across the league were astounded by and thoroughly enjoyed the intricate motion Cueto utilized.

MLB's official Twitter account shared another angle of Cueto's unique windup, and it's not hard to imagine how a solid hitter like Cron was left chasing this strikeout pitch.

Cueto led the Giants to a 3-1 win in their home opener, finishing the game by giving up one run on four hits in 8 2/3 innings.

Giants fans have to be excited by what they're seeing from Cueto, who looks recharged and locked in for his first start in front of the home crowd since 2019.
