We are still unsure of when, or even if the 2020 MLB season will officially begin.

Things will eventually go back to normal in the sports world, but is still anyones guess of when that is going to be.

When the MLB season resumes, the San Francisco Giants will be looking at developing and rebuilding the squad to go on another prolonged run of success.

Marc Craig and Andy McCollough of The Athletic put together a list of players from all 30 MLB teams that they’re hoping to see during the 2020 season.

For the Giants, they listed pitcher Johnny Cueto.

Here is what they had to say:

Cueto still has two seasons guaranteed on a six-year deal that has not exactly gone as the Giants hoped when the organization signed him during winter 2015. But he still offers compelling theater every fifth day, especially for a team mired in a rebuilding effort with only a handful of players expected to aid in the future already in the organizational pipeline. If you want to be entertained on a random evening, it’s hard to do better than the rump-shaking right-hander. This was supposed to be his first full season back from Tommy John surgery.”

The 34-year-old only made four starts last season after recovering from his injury.

Cueto was tabbed to be the Giants Opening Day starter against the Los Angeles Dodgers on March 26, which would have been just his 14th start since the beginning of the 2018 season.

Which player are you most excited to see if the 2020 season is able to get started?
