He had three different problems during the year, with the labrum surgery ending his season.

I like the way Cuddyer plays and he’s averaged 149 gms played and 575 ab’s over the last 3 seasons so he is durable. 22 hr’s and 82 rbi’s per season over the last season as well would help us a ton. Career as a 1B, 210 gms 12 errors, .993 fldg pct, 2.20 ZR. I think that he would be more than adequate.
