DETROIT (AP) - San Francisco right-hander Johnny Cueto has been scratched from Thursday’s start at Detroit because of an inner ear infection.

Chris Stratton is starting for the Giants instead. The change was announced about 20 minutes before the scheduled first pitch at Comerica Park.

Cueto is 6-7 with a 4.26 ERA this season.

Stratton is making his first major league start. The right-hander has made nine appearances for the Giants, all in relief, over the past two seasons. He’s pitched in two games this year.
