Cueto is ready for the attention as the Giants' new $130 million man, and ready to help San Francisco win another even-year World Series following titles in 2010, '12 and '14.
The right-hander was formally introduced in his new No. 47 jersey a day after passing a physical that included an MRI of his pitching elbow. Joked general manager Bobby Evans, "We did not MRI his hair."
Cueto's deal includes an opt out after two years and $46 million. He will earn $15 million next season and $21 million each year from 2017-21. His $5 million signing bonus is spread out in installments of $1 million each from 2017-21.
