2016

2015

Cuthbert took another big step forward in 2014, as a slash line of .276/.342/.420 and career-best totals in home runs (10) and steals (nine) for Double-A Northwest Arkansas earned him an August promotion to Triple-A Omaha. He then tacked on another two long balls during his time spent at the Triple-A level, and posted a .715 OPS over an even 100 plate appearances. He was able to correct some of the selectivity issues that plagued him in 2013, and began to show flashes of the mid-level power that the Royals were hoping for in his age-21 season. The 6-foot-1 right-hander brings a strong arm to the table from the hot corner, and if he can continue to improve his baserunning, there's a chance he could see action in the majors in 2015 should the right situation arise. Though Mike Moustakas will block him at his natural position in the short-term, Moustakas' tendency for prolonged slumps may eventually cause the Royals to lose patience, and Cuthbert would be one of the potential names called if they decide to make a switch.

2014

As expected, Cuthbert opened the 2013 season with a return to High-A ball, but he earned a promotion to Double-A with a strong first half that saw improvements across the board from power to plate discipline. He regressed a bit with the increase in level thanks in large part to a rate-killing .246 BABIP, but managed to continue his power development and saw his ISO increase to a .143 mark, which seems to be more indicative of where he could end up as he continues his ascension through the Royals' farm system. With continued development at the plate, he should be able to maintain a better average and on-base percentage, which could help him advance at a quicker rate. However, while his defense remains a strong part of his game, his mid-level power is more likely to settle him in as more of a utility player than someone the Royals would like to see become a full-time player at the hot corner. He appears destined to spend a full season at the Double-A level with a remote possibility of advancing another level by the end of the season.

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.
