|Michael Cuddyer wins Silver Slugger award |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(11/6/13) Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer won his first career Silver Slugger award Wednesday. He posted an NL-leading .331 batting average while hitting 20 home runs and collecting 84 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 489 at-bats.
|Michael Cuddyer likely moving to first |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(10/3/13) Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer will likely move the first base next year, according to the Denver Post.
In a letter to season ticket holders, owner Dick Monfort outlined the team's plans for the offseason. Monfort said Cuddyer would move to first base, taking the place of Todd Helton. The team is planning to pursue a big bat to replace Cuddyer.
Cuddyer had a big year, hitting .331/.389/.530 in 489 at-bats.
|Michael Cuddyer looking due for major regression |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/30/13) As someone who had never hit above .284 coming into this season, Michael Cuddyer was likely far from top of mind for those trying to predict the winner of the National League batting title back in March. But Cuddyer won the title handily, outdistancing the Braves' Chris Johnson by 10 points with a .331 average.
Though Cuddyer was in his second season with the Rockies, his power production -- 20 home runs and 31 doubles in 130 games -- was not especially impressive for an outfielder. He didn't become a better contact hitter either. The spike in Cuddyer's batting average was rooted in a .330 batting average on ground balls.
That mark is a serious departure from the major league average (.240), the average for Rockies' hitters (.245) and his own career average on grounders (.256). Cuddyer did set a career high for infield hits with 24, but he doesn't have the elite-level speed it takes to hit over .300 on grounders on a consistent basis.
With a batting average sure to dip back below .300, Fantasy owners should not expect Cuddyer to be anywhere close to the top 25 outfielder he was this year.
|Michael Cuddyer may be still dealing with wrist injury |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/28/13) Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer was held out of the starting lineup Saturday against the Dodgers. Cuddyer could be still nursing an injured left wrist, according to the Denver Post.
The Rockies are likely going to take a caution approach with Cuddyer, especially with one game remaining on the year. He is hitting .333 with 20 homers and 84 RBI in 484 at-bats this season.
|Michael Cuddyer notches three hits in return |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/22/13) Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer had three hits in his return from an injured wrist Sunday against Arizona.
Cuddyer finished 3 for 5 with a trio of singles. His wrist seems fine after undergoing a cortisone shot late in the week. He's sitting on a healthy .334/.392/.539 batting line.
