Cueto takes the hill for first time since Royals' title clincher

The Kansas City Royals had a rough offensive night on Chicago's North Side but should find things easier as they head to the South Side. That's because they will face Chicago White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija, who has lost seven straight home outings heading into Tuesday night's three-game series opener. Kansas City (90-66) fell 1-0 in 11 innings to the Chicago Cubs on Monday in...

Royals' Johnny Cueto has craziest pitching motion ever

Pitching isn't enough for Royals starter Johnny Cueto. He needs to mix in a little dancing while he's working. While facing Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz in the third inning on Thursday, Cueto delivered a pitch while simultaneously executing some kind of shimmy gyration. And it was beautiful.

With a little help, Cueto could deliver Royals first division title in 30 years

A day after his team may have turned a corner, Johnny Cueto wants to keep showing that he has, too. The right-hander hopes to build on a breakthrough effort as the Royals look to wrap up their first division title in 30 years Thursday night against the visiting Seattle Mariners.

Watching Johnny Cueto and Salvador Perez

Just the other day, Johnny Cueto turned in his first good start in over a month. Though the Royals have been in position to coast to the playoffs for weeks, seeing Cueto actually get batters out came as a tremendous relief, an indication that the ace is getting back to being an ace with October around the bend. Maybe just as interesting as what Cueto did on the field were conversations...

Cueto’s Struggles Are Not the Only Reason for Royals Scuffle

Johnny Cueto has been bad for the Royals for the majority of his starts with them, and it’s not a huge secret. In fact, Cueto has been such a disaster, some are even calling for Jeremy Guthrie to take his spot in the rotation right now. To any baseball-savvy individual, that probably sounds like a bad idea.

Kansas City Royals: Solving Cueto

Cueto open to signing with Red Sox in free agency

This embed is invalid   " /> When Hanley Ramirez and Johnny Cueto were spotted chatting before Thursday’s game at Fenway Park, it was reasonable to wonder whether they discussed uniting for the Boston Red Sox in 2016. The Red Sox need a front-line starter and Cueto is one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball. He also happens to be a free agent this offseason...

Adorable baby Royals fan does best Johnny Cueto impression (photo)

To say that Kansas City Royals fans were awaiting Johnny Cueto’s first start at Kauffman Stadium on Monday night with eager anticipation would be a drastic understatement. Cueto didn’t disappoint, either, dazzling the hometown crowd with a four-hit, eight-strikeout, complete-game shutout to lead the Royals to a 4-0 win over the Detroit Tigers. But even before he toed the rubber...
