MLB Free Agent Rumors: 2-Time All-Star Pitcher Drawing Interest

He just recently turned 38, and started just 10 games last season in the majors, but apparently, 16-year veteran Johnny Cueto isn't ready to hang it up yet, and according to MLB Insider Jon Heyman, he is drawing interest from major league teams. 

His agent says Cueto is still working out and ready for another shot. 

“He’s got gas left in the tank,” agent Bryce Dixon said.

Cueto appeared in 13 games for the Miami Marlins last season, 10 starts, but struggled to a 6.02 ERA. But in 2022, the veteran righty showed he still had it, pitching to a 3.35 ERA in 24 starts with a 1.22 WHIP and a solid 102:33 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Cueto signed a one-year deal with Miami in 2023 with a club option for 2024, but the Fish declined that option. 

He's a two-time All-Star (2014, 2016) and has a career mark of 144-111 with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.

We'd all like to hope that Cueto still has something left to give, because after all, who wouldn't love to see that funky delivery back in the bigs?

Cueto was connected to the Yankees earlier this spring, particularly after Gerrit Cole went down, and the Marlins could perhaps look at him again, after losing Eury Perez for the season.
