I think you're probably right on with Homer, but I'd expect better out of Cueto.
Few more walks and a few extra HBP's for BP gets the job done. His average will slump slightly because I don't think his HR numbers stay constant with last years totals.
With Cueto, its such a small sample that if he allowed 17 ER instead of the 18 I gave him, his ERA would drop to 4.37. Basically all that means is Dunn gets a bad break on a ball one game and his ERA takes what seems like a large dent because of it.
