Cheslor Cuthbert: Let go by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert was non-tendered by the Royals on Monday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Cuthbert played in 87 games during the 2019 campaign, hitting .246 with nine home runs and 40 RBI over that span. He's surfaced in the majors in each of the last five seasons and will likely receive an offer to earn a backup role elsewhere.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Losing work to O'Hearn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Cuthbert may be on the outs for an everyday role at a corner-infield spot, as he'll head to the bench for the third time in five games. The Royals have been deploying Hunter Dozier at the hot corner more frequently of late with Bubba Starling and Brett Phillips seeing steady work in the outfield, while Ryan O'Hearn has emerged as manager Ned Yost's preferred option at first base. Cuthbert hasn't helped his case for earning playing time by slashing just .149/.197/.269 in August.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Takes seat Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mets.

Cuthbert started the last 27 contests but will head to the bench Friday as he is 0-for-20 with one walk in his last five games. Ryan O'Hearn and Hunter Dozier will start at first and third base, respectively.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Slaps eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Royals' 10-8 loss to the Tigers on Thursday.

The 26-year-old checked in with his eighth long ball of the season with a third-inning, two-run shot off Matthew Boyd. Cuthbert has now hit safely in 11 of out of his last 12 games, boosting his slash line to a solid .293/.332/.449 across 238 plate appearances over that stretch.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Pads RBI total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

Cuthbert's sixth-inning base hit scored a pair of runs and tied the game at 3-3, but the Blue Jays responded with a late rally to take the series opener. With only six home runs and 15 extra-base hits in 200 plate appearances this season, Cuthbert doesn't offer the sort of power production teams value from corner infielders, but he nonetheless seems to have secured an everyday role on the back of his strong contact skills. A .360 BABIP suggests Cuthbert's .295 average may be headed for a significant correction, however.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Knocks in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

Cuthbert kicked off the scoring in this one with an RBI double to left field in the first inning, and he cut the deficit to two in the eighth with a single to center. Through 42 games this season, he's slashing .298/.331/.460 with six home runs and 25 RBI.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 3-for-5 with a double and solo home run Thursday against the White Sox.

Cuthbert kicked off his productive afternoon with a double in the first inning and followed that up with a solo home run in the third frame. The long ball was Cuthbert's sixth of the season and second since the All-Star break. He continues to get regular playing time at first base and has quietly put together a solid .298/.325/.464 line across 157 plate appearances.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Checks out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

Cuthbert will sit for the first time in four games while Lucas Duda receives the starting nod at first base. Since joining the big club in late May, Cuthbert is slashing .286/.312.444 with five home runs in 34 games. He should continue to stick ahead of Duda on the depth chart.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

Cuthbert will take a seat for the second time in the last four games despite recording a multi-hit game Thursday. Lucas Duda, who is hitting just .165/.255/.306 across 98 plate appearances this season, will start in his place and bat sixth.

July 3, 2019 12:52 PM
Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

Cuthbert had started 18 of the last 19 games but recorded an unimpressive .654 OPS over that stretch. Lucas Duda starts at first base in his absence.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Twins.

His three-run shot in the fifth inning off Martin Perez gave the Royals a 6-3 lead, but the bullpen couldn't make it stick. It remains to be seen how much playing time Cuthbert will get now that Hunter Dozier is back in the fold -- Cuthbert got the start at first base Friday with Minnesota sending a lefty to the mound -- but his .307/.333/.520 slash line with four homers and 15 RBI in 19 games since his promotion would suggest he deserves more than just a platoon role.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is not starting Wednesday against Detroit.

Cuthbert started 10 games in a row after his contract was purchased May 31. He's made a good impression, hitting .324/.375/.595 with three homers, far better than the career .252/.303/.378 mark he owned prior to this season. Kelvin Gutierrez gets the start at the hot corner.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Goes yard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Red Sox.

Cuthbert took Ryan Weber deep in the second inning, recording his third home run of the season. Since being recalled on May 31, he's proven productive, hitting .375 and slugging .750 across 24 plate appearances. However, Cuthbert's career .131 ISO suggests that it'd be wise to limit expectations, though he is drawing consistent at-bats batting primarily sixth in the Royals' lineup.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI groundout in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Red Sox.

He took Eduardo Rodriguez deep in the second inning for a two-run shot to give the Royals an early lead, then brought home a meaningless run in the ninth with a grounder to shortstop. Cuthbert's been on a tear since his promotion, going 6-for-16 (.375) with two homers. However, he's also struck out seven times in that stretch and carries a lackluster .254/.304/.386 career slash line.

June 2, 2019 10:56 PM
Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Singles three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 3-for-4 in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Texas.

Cuthbert collected three singles -- two of which were of the infield variety -- but couldn't help the Royals' offense score runs. He's gone 5-for-12 but has struck out six times since being called up Friday. Once Hunter Dozier (side) is healthy, Cuthbert should ride the bench on a near regular basis.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Goes deep in 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Friday night against the Rangers.

Cuthbert went deep in the second inning to kick off the scoring in this one, but the Rangers would put together a big sixth inning that Kansas City wasn't able to overcome. The 26-year-old had his contract selected from Triple-A Omaha earlier in the day, and he got the start at the hot corner Friday night in place of Hunter Dozier (side), who's hoping to be back in action by Tuesday. Cuthbert is off to a solid start after homering in his 2019 major-league debut, though he struggled to a .194/.282/.301 slash line over 30 games with the big club a season ago.

May 31, 2019 05:20 PM
Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Selected by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert's contract was selected by the Royals on Friday.

Cuthbert has played parts of four seasons in Kansas City, but his .252/.303/.378 career slash line doesn't look good at any position, let alone the infield corners. The 26-year-old does at least own a considerably more promising .310/.370/.528 line in 51 games for Triple-A Omaha this season. Chris Owings was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Heads to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals reassigned Cuthbert to the minors Thursday.

After seeing time with the big club in parts of each of the past four seasons, Cuthbert was attending spring training as a non-roster invitee after the Royals outrighted him in January. He was unable to win a reserve infield job ahead of Opening Day but will stick in the organization at Triple-A Omaha.

January 10, 2019 02:24 PM
Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Assigned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Omaha, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

A back injury limited Cuthbert to just 30 games with the big club in 2018. He struggled to a .194/.282/.301 in those appearances, prompting his removal from the team's 40-man roster earlier in the offseason. Cuthbert will likely get a chance to earn his roster spot back in spring training, though he seems more likely to open the year with Omaha.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Booted from 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert was designated for assignment Friday by the Royals, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

Cuthbert was added to the 40-man roster at the end of November after signing a one-year contract, but he's since been designated for assignment following the return of Kyle Zimmer. Cuthbert could still earn his spot back in spring training, but he'll likely begin the year at Triple-A Omaha.
