Sandoval out for season; Cueto has TJ surgery

May 7:

San Francisco pitcher Johnny Cueto will be sidelined for six to eight weeks because of a strained right elbow and will not have Tommy John surgery. “It is great news,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “I was hoping for the best and hoping he would not need surgery.”

August 2:

Cueto underwent successful Tommy John surgery in Los Angeles on Thursday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Cueto is returning to San Francisco on Friday and will meet up with the Giants when they return home on Monday.

“It sounds like all went well, so now it’s going to be 12-14 months, as far as his rehab,” Bochy said.

So really, they're saying Cueto won't have elbow surgery until six to eight weeks from now.
Nailed that one.

Maybe the Giants secretly brought the Mets' medical staff with them when they moved to San Francisco???
