Cuddyer watch

M Cuddyer got his 3rd start at 2nd base tonight. Buy low on him now. He will end up being a very solid 2nd baseman for fantasy purposes.

In Yahoo, he is already eligible at 1st, 3rd, and OF. CBS just 1st and OF.

Now he just needs to remember how to hit. I was afraid that his foot injury (wart removal) during spring training was going to mess him up and these kind of things have messed up other seasons (see 2009).

I would get Cuddyer (actually I just did for Belt), 1st, 2nd,3b and OF eligible in yahoo soon. Starting to hit, had another hit tonight. Did not have much spring training & he is still batting around the five spot!

Not a bad bench player with flexibility. Get him before people see that he is 2b elig!

Cuddyer was batting 2nd tonight! Was around the 5th spot over the past week.

Where would last season's line, 93 runs, 14 homers, 81 rbis, 7 sbs and .271 BA rate Cuddyer among 2B?

Thanks for the heads up, I'm going to give this a shot. Can't be a bigger disaster than my Hill/Figgins combo

With the same numbers as last year he'd probably be just inside the top 10. Don't sell the farm to get him because I'd bet owners are going to be looking for more than he's worth. But, if you're hurting at 2nd and can get him for a guy who's warming your bench, go ahead.

Playing 2nd again tonight, will be his 4th appearance. Batting 7th.

I checked and he would have about about the 10th best 2nd basemen last year, with his numbers. I also have him in a points league and he would have been the 5th best.

Cuddyer is typically a slow starter sporting a .252 BA in April and a .272 BA the rest of the season. This is further magnified by the 3 off season surgeries and him missing most of spring training. Last year Cuddyer's numbers regressed due to him playing hurt for most of the year. The upside for Cuddyer from May on is probably a .270ish batting avg with some nice power numbers the rest of the season.

My recommendation is if Cuddyer's on the WW and your in the need of a 2nd baseman, pick him up and hold onto him till he starts to heat up. The reward is worth the risk and a healthy Cuddyer should produce.

Yeah, if he's on the wire don't hesitate. But, I wouldn't trade much for him.
