INF Cheslor Cuthbert was in competition for the second base job, which Raul Mondesi won. While Cuthbert may lack the range to be an everyday second baseman, he can handle the position occasionally. His natural position is third base and with Mike Moustakas coming off knee surgery, he will need some days off. Cuthbert could fill in there, plus play some first base. He is also out of minor league options and the Royals could not afford to lose him. If Moustakas bolts after this season, Cuthbert could be the third baseman of the future.
