2023 Fantasy Outlook
Entering his age-36 season on the back of a three-year stretch in which he produced a 4.59 ERA, Cueto didn't generate much fanfare when he signed with the White Sox just three days before Opening Day. The late signing meant he wasn't ready to join the big-league club until mid-May, but he went on to produce an impressive 3.35 ERA in 25 outings. While that certainly helped many fantasy teams last year, there are reasons to doubt a repeat performance this season, with his 4.49 SIERA suggesting a heavy dose of skepticism. Cueto's 5.1 BB% was quite strong, but his 15.7 K% was second-worst among pitchers who threw at least 150 innings. Much of his success was thanks to his ability to avoid homers, but he got there via an unsustainably low 7.7% HR/FB rate rather than by keeping the ball on the ground at a high clip. The righty's resurgence was one of the better stories of 2022, and it's possible the wily veteran will produce a suitable follow-up act aftering joining Miami on a one-year deal, but that's far from guaranteed.
