SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Right-hander Johnny Cueto is not on the Giants’ roster for the NL Division Series as manager Gabe Kapler went with his established bullpen and after Cueto missed time through the season with elbow troubles. San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt is sidelined by a broken left thumb that he hopes will heal in time for a return in the NLCS should the Giants advance. Cueto went 7-7 with a 4.08 ERA over 22 outings and 21 starts, making the first relief appearance of his career Sept. 30 against Arizona. Kapler said Cueto didn’t have enough time after healing up to stretch out as a starter, limiting his potential impact on the NLDS roster.
