Breaking : Giants to sign P Johnny Cueto
The Giants have made their second significant rotation splash of the offseason, announcing on Monday they’ve
agreed to a 6-yr contract with righty Johnny Cueto, pending a physical. Cueto will reportedly receive a $130MM
guarantee and an opt-out clause after two seasons. The contract is said to pay Cueto $46MM prior to the opt-out
and also contains a club option for a 7th season, should Cueto elect not to opt out.

With this new contract, Cueto will have the ability to hit the free-agent market again in advance of his age-32 season.

Leake is certainly not an exciting signing, but apparently he's an innings guy and could end up being another Jeff Suppan.
