SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Johnny Cueto remains in the Dominican Republic helping his ailing father a week after pitchers and catchers reported to spring training, and the San Francisco Giants plan to reach out to him to see how he is doing and whether he thinks he will be ready to pitch for his country in the World Baseball Classic.
San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy is not worried about Cueto's preparation. The right-hander has been throwing and working out regularly at the club's academy.
"The WBC is starting to cause a slight concern," Bochy said Monday. "He'll be smart enough to know if he's ready or not."
