2013

Despite the fact that he struggled at the plate during his second professional season, batting just .240 with seven home runs and a .296 OBP, there is still plenty of raw talent and promise to be found in the 19-year-old Cuthbert. The Nicaraguan native has a surprisingly good grasp of the strike zone, can spray the ball to all fields and makes decent contact when he does connect. What he needs to do now is harness his power and learn to drive through the ball and pick up that .082 ISO that he posted last year. Defensively, he is sound and most within the organization feel that, even as he matures and fills out, he will be able to stay at the hot corner rather than require a switch to second base or the outfield. He'll probably return to High-A again to open the 2013 season with the potential to move up to Double-A at some point. He is obviously a few years away still but definitely someone to keep on your radar.

2012

An 18-year-old international signee from Nicaragua, Cuthbert spent 2011 at Low-A Kane County, where he hit .267/.345/.397 with eight home runs and 51 RBI in 342 plate appearances. He profiles as a hitter who should develop power as he fills out, while maintaining his ability to hit for average. Being that he's so early in his development, Cuthbert is more of a dynasty league target at this time. He should start 2012 at High-A Wilmington, where owners will want to begin tracking the Royals' prospect, if they haven't already.
