All the predictions are very close, with only a 20-point OPS spread from optimistic to pessimistic and only a 6-point spread in batting average. The limiting factor for Cuddyer has always been playing time, not talent. While everyone seems to see him as a "solid" player and the numbers above reflect that, Cuddyer at 26 is just entering his prime, and I personally think a power spike is quite possible, perhaps even likely, even if the projection systems only show median numbers. Upside: .285, 30 homers.
