Michael Cuddyer=2006 Breakout

Postby mikegp » Mon May 15, 2006 4:10 pm

I'm taking a chance with this....but last season a lot of people had Cuddyer labeled has a breakout candidate. He was a pretty highly thought of as a prospect, but just never produced at the major league level. He's 26 this year and so far is having a good year and is FINALLY starting to get some regular playing time. He's eligible at 2B so he could be a good pickup. I could be wrong but don't say I didn't warn ya ;-D From what I've read and seen he has always had some kind of naging injury, but this year his swing finally looks healthy. .280-.300 with 25HR is a possibility which is pretty good for a 2B.

I'm keeping my eye on the guy. I could use a little help at 2b (Hell, who couldn't) and his recent heat wave is peaking my interest.

I'll call this a watch and wait for the moment... but getting closer to grabbing him.

I picked him up to use as a utility/fill in player. On Yahoo he is listed as a 2B, 3B, or OF. This can come in handy with rainouts or day offs (such as today).

i've been keeping an eye on him.
he's 1 start at 1b away from qualifying there too.
definately a good multi positional player

Yeah, I've been watching him too, but I'm wondering does he beat out other young guys with as-yet-unrealized potential like Ricky Weeks for example?

he is definitely not worth dropping someone like weeks for. cuddyer might be someone you wanna stash on your bench as a utility guy or just ride him while he's hot for some of your slumping players.

but in the long run you're going to want to keep weeks over cuddyer easily.

Here is an interesting question. Would you rather have Cuddyer or Lowell as your 2b backup? Lowell is putting up fairly good numbers.
The funny thing is that my platoon of Weeks & Lowell is outperforming Utley (small consolation for not keeping Utley, but I'll take whatever victory I can get).

I decided to pick him up! I dropped a SP for him, I hope he stays hot and can stay around .300 with 25-30 HR.

I may be asking a lot in the power area, but everyday playing time is his key to produce and I think he is getting that now in Minni....
