Very tough rotational casualties for Giants: Alex Wood and Johnny Cueto lost

The San Francisco Giants are in the final stretch for the divisional championship against their eternal rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who until August 30 are on their heels 2.5 games behind. Neither of us loses step But the Giants may have to make do with two massive casualties at the beginning of the last month of the MLB regular season.

According to information from Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports, Giants manager Gabe Kapler has reported that starting pitchers Alex Wood and Johnny Cueto go to the disabled list, the first for testing positive for Covid-19 and the second despite after testing negative for Coronavirus, he feels sick and they do not rule out that in another test he may be positive, so he has also been sent to the list of disabled.

Initially, manager Kapler planned to use the first half of the rotation for the four-game series against the Brewers at home, with Cueto and Wood making the first two starts, but now they will have to use the bullpen to get at least one of those games, plus getting pitcher John Brebbia up for second in the series.

While both Cueto and Wood were being two of the weakest links in the Giants’ rotation, it leaves them very badly off to face two consecutive series against the Brewers and the Dodgers, having to force the bullpen in one of those games and use an arm. extra.

Cueto and Wood have an ERA of 3.73 and 4.08 respectively, in addition to totaling a 17-10 record between them.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
