A rough season for San Francisco Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto could get rougher.

Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Monday that Tommy John surgery is definitely back under discussion, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic.

The surgery, if it’s needed, would be due to continued pain in his elbow.

So far this year, Cueto has managed to appear in just nine games, earning a 3-2 record with an ERA of 3.23 and a WHIP of 1.11.

The Giants signed Cueto to a six-year deal back at the end of 2015. He’s currently playing out the third year of that contract, which is worth a staggering $130 million.
