He’s continued to hit in the major leagues, slashing .333/.333/.533 with one home run in four games with the big club.
Tuesday night, Cuthbert slammed a 2-run home run and added single. His second-inning home run gave the KC Royals a rare 2-1 lead in the second inning, and his single triggered the Kansas City Royals three-run rally in the fifth that Lorenzo Cain capped with his second bomb.
Cuthbert appears ready for a major-league job, and the big club needs to find room for him when Mike Moustakas returns from the disabled list. In the mean time, the third base job appears to be his for the next few weeks. Here’s hoping that Cuthbert can hold the fort until Moose returns.
Here comes the second wave of prospects that the Kansas City Royals need to create a dynasty.
