    Except for speed, Cuddyer has above-average tools across the board. He's slow out of the box but a good baserunner once he gets going. He has exceptional power and arm strength, and has attracted a lot of interest as a pitcher. His work ethic has made him a favorite of scouts. He has become a quality high school shortstop through hard work, but third base still may be a better fit in pro ball.
