PHOENIX -- San Francisco Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto has been activated from the 10-day disabled list.

Cueto was activated so he could start against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

He sprained his left ankle while working out in the Giants' clubhouse on April 7 and went on the DL after going through a series of tests with the training staff.

Cueto (1-0) won his second start of the season against Seattle on April 4, allowing one run on seven hits in six innings.

He went 8-8 with a 4.52 ERA last season while battling blister issues and a right flexor tendon strain.
