New Giants starter Johnny Cueto battled a flexor strain during the 2015 season but his MRI “looked great” according to Giants GM Bobby Evans, per a report from CSN Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic. That certainly helps them feel better about their six-year, $130 million commitment to the right-hander.

Cueto missed only one start with the Reds despite the injury, but finished with a combined 3.44 ERA between the Reds and Royals -- his highest mark since 2010. Most of the poor outings came with the Royals, as he compiled a 4.76 ERA across 13 starts.

Cueto is now part of a rotation that includes Madison Bumgarner, Jeff Samardzija, Jake Peavy, and Matt Cain. That will certainly help keep pace with the Diamondbacks with their additions of Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller.
