Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert keeps it going

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:28:32 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks and a run scored Saturday, July 23, against the Texas Rangers to extend his hitting streak to 12 games.

Fantasy Tip: The Nicaraguan-born Cuthbert has come out of nowhere this season to emerge as a must-start AL-only fantasy option and a solid play in deeper mixed formats, too.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert hitting second

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:11:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is batting second against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert has recorded at least one hit in 13 of his last 14 games and has one home run and 10 RBI during that span. He should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues because of his hot streak and can also be used in deeper fantasy leagues.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert settling into role

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 14:21:03 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is 25-for-82 with 11 runs, four home runs, 19 RBI and a .830 OPS over his past 85 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert doesn't move the needle in shallow leagues given the depth at the hot corner. But in deep mixed and AL-only setups, Cuthbert is a viable starter given his production and full-time role.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert has solid stat line

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 20:19:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a double and two-run home run Tuesday, July 5, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He drove in all of his team's runs in the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert is humming along with a .280 batting average, seven doubles, eight homers and 24 RBIs in 189 at-bats. He has emerged as a solid fantasy option in most AL-only formats, some deeper mixed leagues and as a decent mid-tier play in DFS.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert sitting vs. Cards

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 13:34:29 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 30. 2B Christian Colon is starting at third base and batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert has provided a solid return in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with 19 runs, seven home runs, 20 RBI and a .271/.307/.429 slash line over 45 games. However, he's still not even a middle-tier option in those deep formats. Colon is a depth piece in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups, and he is a potential flier in daily contests Thursday.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert drives in three

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 21:38:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against the Houston Astros on Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: After posting an underwhelming .253-1-5 line in 79 May at-bats, Cuthbert has bumped those totals up to .300-5-10 through 70 ABs in June. That's not elite production for a third sacker, but his fantasy profile is on the upswing. He could pay dividends in larger mixed leagues.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert leaves the yard twice

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 14:07:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert continued to fill the void left behind by the injured Mike Moustakas on Saturday, June 11, going 3-for-4 with a pair of solo shots to record his first career multi-homer game.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert has received most of the starts at the hot corner since Moustakas was lost for the season with a torn ACL on May 22, and while his five RBI is a bit of an eyesore over that time, the 23-year-old Nicaraguan is more than holding his own with a .283 average and three homers over that same span. He's only a very deep mixed-league or AL-only option only at the moment, but he's certainly worth keeping an eye on in mixed leagues as the season progresses.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert has hit in return

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 21:14:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert (elbow) went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts Tuesday, June 7, against the Baltimore Orioles. He was hit in the elbow by an errant throw Monday, June 6, forcing him out of the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears safe to get Cuthbert back into the active fantasy lineup in AL-only leagues which allow daily moves, and he can also be trusted as a salary saver in DFS play.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert back in lineup

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:32:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert (elbow) returns to the starting lineup and is hitting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert has been a decent replacement with Mike Moustakas (knee) out for the season, and the former prospect is hitting .263 with two home runs and six RBI in 25 games. He's not a strong daily option hitting low in the lineup, but he's a fine fill-in as a corner infielder in AL-only leagues.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert leaves game early

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 19:48:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert (elbow) left the game Monday, June 6, against the Baltimore Orioles due to a right elbow contusion. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: If Cuthbert is forced to miss time it would likely be Whit Merrifield seeing playing time at the hot corner in Cuthbert's absence.
