Royals prospect second baseman Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 for Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Monday.
Cuthbert started the game at second base, and committed his second error in as many games. He has been hot as of late, hitting .385/.442/.615 during his 10-game hitting streak, and .311/.366/.467 over his last 32 games. Cuthbert has primarily played first base over the past month, but is slowly beginning the transition to second base to see if he can turn into an adequate second baseman, which will give his bat more opportunities to be in the lineup.

Royals prospect Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 on Wednesday at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, raising his season line to .272/.337/.420.

Cuthbert has been playing first base since Hunter Dozier was promoted to Triple-A, but he will be shifted to second base after he can get more practice. The move would be a solid bump to Cuthbert's long-term fantasy value, particularly if he keeps up his hot hitting. Cuthbert is batting .438/.471/.688 during his current eight-game hit streak.

Royals first base prospect Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-5 with a double and a home run for Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Friday.

The Royals promoted third base prospect Hunter Dozier from High-A Wilmington to Double-A Northwest Arkansas, and shifted Cuthbert across the diamond in what appears to be a permanent move. Cuthbert was never the best defensive third baseman, as he had 19 errors in 58 starts at third base. He has hits in each of his last five games, and it will be interesting to see how the defensive switch impacts his hitting.

Royals third base prospect Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-5 with two home runs on Wednesday for Double-a Northwest Arkansas.

Before the game, Cuthbert's slugging percentage was .333; after it became .423. Cuthbert has the talent to be a .280 hitter with 20-plus home runs, but he seems more likely to fail to reach his potential. He has been young for every level, but he needs to consistently produce to revive his prospect status. He has improved his K/BB rate in 2014, with 14 walks and 13 strikeouts, which is always a positive sign.

Royals optioned 3B Cheslor Cuthbert to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Cuthbert has seen his stock tumble a bit recently, but the Royals still added him to the 40-man roster in November. The 21-year-old will attempt to make some progress with his plate discipline in his return to Double-A.
Mar 10 - 11:54 AM

Royals purchased the contract of 3B Cheslor Cuthbert from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

The 21-year-old third base prospect struggled this year after being promoted to Double-A, but the Royals like his raw skills and have now protected him from December's Rule 5 Draft. Cuthbert is a .249/.316/.370 career hitter in the minor leagues.
