Cheslor Cuthbert went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts as the Royals' DH and cleanup man on Friday.
The Royals could and should have signed another cheap FA bat after Jorge Bonifacio went down. Instead, they're giving Cuthbert a shot, even batting him cleanup the last four games. He's just 6-for-31 with one extra-base hits (a double) and two RBI to date, and he doesn't project to get all that much better. Apr 13 - 11:45 PM

Cheslor Cuthbert went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored Tuesday against the Tigers.

Cuthbert led off the second with a double off Matt Boyd before moving to third when Paulo Orlando lined out to center. He was then brought home on a Jorge Soler sacrifice fly. Cuthbert is 4-for-10 with two RBI to begin the year. There's not much room for fantasy value here, but he could get another couple of starts this week depending on the status of Lucas Duda's hamstring.
Apr 3 - 4:14 PM

Cheslor Cuthbert went 4-for-4 with a solo homer, three RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s 9-6 win over the Giants in Cactus League action.

Cuthbert was on track to begin the year as the Royals’ starting third baseman, but that changed after the club brought back Mike Moustakas. Now his best chance for at-bats will be out of the designated hitter spot. Cuthbert, who is out of options this spring, has done his best to impress by hitting .407 (22-for-54) with three homers and nine RBI.
Mar 23 - 8:52 PM

Cheslor Cuthbert belted a solo homer in the Royals' Cactus League loss to the Padres on Tuesday.

Cuthbert took former teammate Chris Young deep over the left field wall in the bottom of the third inning. The 25-year-old projects to serve as the Royals' everyday third baseman in 2018, though as a .261/.306/.390 career hitter he offers very little fantasy upside. Cuthbert batted just .231/.275/.322 with two home runs over 153 plate appearances for Kansas City in 2017.
Mar 6 - 11:23 PM

Cheslor Cuthbert (gallbladder) came off the bench and delivered an RBI single in his return to action Sunday against the Twins.

Cuthbert came into the game to play first base with the Royals up big. The 24-year-old has been dealing with gallbladder issues in recent days, but that he was able to come off the bench is a good sign about his progress.

Cheslor Cuthbert has been unavailable lately due to gall bladder problems.

"It’s not inflamed but it’s kind of acted up," Royals manager Ned Yost said of Cuthbert. "He’s vomiting a lot. He’s just very weak and doesn’t feel good." The timing is poor for Cuthbert, as he'd be in line for some playing time at third base with Mike Moustakas (knee) being used in the designated hitter spot. It's unclear when Cuthbert might be ready to play.

Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Royals' 7-4 win over the Indians on Sunday.

Cuthbert launched a game-tying solo shot off Danny Salazar in the bottom of the fourth inning and he contributed a two-run single to the Royals' three-run fifth inning. The 24-year-old infielder is slashing .226/.265/.340 with two home runs and 17 RBI in 39 games this season.

Cheslor Cuthbert returned to the Royals' lineup with a bang on Tuesday, delivering a three-run double in a loss to the Cardinals.

His bases-clearing two-bagger got the Royals on the board in the fourth inning but proved to be their only offense in the ballgame. Cuthbert finished the night 2-for-4, raising his season slash to .202/.232/.292.

Royals activated INF Cheslor Cuthbert from the 10-day disabled list.

Cuthbert has been out since late June with a sprained wrist and bruised foot. Ramon Torres was optioned in a corresponding move.

Cheslor Cuthbert (wrist, foot) will resume his rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

Cuthbert fouled a ball off his foot while rehabbing last week, but it didn't keep him out of action before long. The 24-year-old originally landed on the disabled list in late June with a sprained left wrist. He could rejoin the Royals in a utility role once he's back to full health.

Cheslor Cuthbert (wrist) and Paulo Orlando (shin) both suffered setbacks during their rehab assignments.

Cuthbert had been rehabbing at Triple-A Omaha while Orlando was doing his rehab with Double-A Arkansas. Few specifics have been offered on their setbacks, though it's safe to assume neither will be joining the Royals any time soon.

Cheslor Cuthbert (wrist) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Cuthbert is on the comeback trail after landing on the DL with sprained wrist late last month. The 24-year-old will play a utility role upon his return.
Sat, Jul 15, 2017 05:15:00 PM

Royals placed INF Cheslor Cuthbert on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 26, with a sprained left wrist.

It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. Jorge Soler has replaced Cuthbert on the roster.

Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI versus the Astros on Wednesday.

The Royals probably would have sent Cuthbert down for a spell if he weren't out of options, but he's starting to hit some now after opening the season with a .140 average in his first 57 at-bats. He'll probably get a long look at third base later this year with Mike Moustakas quite likely to be traded.
