Cueto will pitch in a minor league game Saturday, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Giants taking on a divisional opponent in the Padres on Saturday, Cueto will head down to San Francisco's minor league complex for one of his final tune-ups of the spring. Cueto has made two appearances with the Giants this spring, allowing two earned runs over 7.0 innings.

Cueto made his spring training debut Saturday, giving up one run on three hits in his two innings of work while striking out one in a win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto missed the first few weeks of camp tending to his ill father back in the Domincan Republic. The 2016 All-Star said he felt good after throwing a 65-pitch live bullpen session Wednesday, and that sentiment rang true on Saturday as well. Cueto said that he would like to pitch for Team Domincan Republic in the WBC, but he would need to make two spring training starts before making an official decision. Either way, he appears ready for Opening Day after posting a 2.79 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in his first season as a Giant.

Cueto felt great after throwing a 65-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, and he is still a candidate to join Team Domincan Republic in the WBC CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto missed was a few weeks late reporting to Giants' camp after dealing with his ill father back in the Domincan Republic. The long layoff put his status for the WBC in doubt, but the 2016 All-Star insists that he still wants to pitch in the tournament. He said that he wants to make two Cactus League starts before making a final decision. The positive news for fantasy owners is that Cueto felt great after his lengthy bullpen session Wednesday and the lengthy layoff shouldn't affect his status for Opening Day.

Cueto will throw a live batting practice session Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto was unable to arrive in Giants camp until March 4 due to visa issues with his father, but since he was working out some in the Dominican Republic during the delay, he seems to be relatively close to getting back into game action. The righty will likely pitch for San Francisco sometime in the next week before presumably heading off to compete in the World Baseball Classic with the Dominican Republic.

Cueto arrived at spring camp and is scheduled to take a physical Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto had been in the Dominican Republic taking care of his ailing father and was delayed by visa issues upon his return. The right-hander says he completed three live bullpen sessions in the D.R., but still needs time to adjust to camp. He has already ruled himself out of the first round of the World Baseball Classic as he attempts to get back into form. Regardless, expect the All-Star to be fully ready for Opening Day.

Cueto (personal) is expected to report to the Giants by Friday and will not pitch in the first round of the World Baseball Classic, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto has been attending to family matters in the Dominican Republic, which has delayed his arrival at spring training. Although Cueto will miss the opening round of the WBC, the possibility still exists that he could pitch in later rounds of the tournament. During his absence from camp, he's continued to stay active, so there's no reason to believe he'll be unavailable at the start of the 2017 campaign.

Cueto (personal) is expected to join Giants camp Friday, Alex Pavlovic of CNS Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

His visa issues appear to have been settled, though it remains uncertain whether he'll join the Dominican Republic club on time for the World Baseball Classic. None of these setbacks should cause any concern for his availability at the start of the season, unless something arises in the interim. Stay tuned until he actually starts pitching.

Cueto nearly has his visa issues settled and could return to the states later this week, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto was initially slated to get back to camp last weekend, but now it seems like a February return is not in the cards. This delay also has his World Baseball Classic participation in jeopardy, as the Giants certainly would prefer that he gets some work in with them prior to heading off to represent his native Dominican Republic. The exact return date is unclear, but this saga seems to be nearing its end.

Cueto is not expected to arrive in camp this weekend as he attempts to obtain a visa for his father, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto has been working out in the Dominican Republic through the entirety of spring camp as he takes care of his ill father, a trend which will continue indefinitely. There's no concern the All-Star pitcher will be ready for Opening Day, though he may not be available for the World Baseball Classic, which begins March 9. His return to the U.S. is still up in the air for now.

Cueto (personal) is scheduled to arrive to spring training over the weekend, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cueto, who has been working out in the Dominican Republic while taking care of his ill father, is expected to report to spring training over the weekend after obtaining a visa for his father. His status for the World Baseball Classic is still up in the air, with his father's health serving as another possible reason he wouldn't participate. Whether or not he'll play for his home country should become more clear once he reports to the Scottsdale.
