If Giolito isn’t available for the series opener, Johnny Cueto is a possibility. The veteran right-hander was in the mix to start one of the games in Tuesday’s doubleheader. Cueto agreed to a minor-league contract in April and has a 5.17 ERA in four starts for Charlotte.
Giolito is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in five starts. The 27-year-old right-hander has struck out 37 while holding opponents to a .221 average.
Vaughn, sidelined since April 29 because of a bruised right hand, was not in the lineup against the New York Yankees. He was batting .283 with four homers and 12 RBIs.
