Michael CuddyerIn the last two seasons, Minnesota's Michael Cuddyer has started at six different positions and hit .296/.372/.467 with 13 home runs while doing it. He's also free agent after this season and with the Twins in fourth place in the American League Central, it's no surprise his name is being bandied about in trade rumors.

That said, a Twins official told Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the team wouldn't trade Cuddyer even if the Twins fall further out of contention. Minnesota entered Sunday's game against the Royals six games behind the Indians, five games back of the Tigers and two behind the White Sox.

Cuddyer, 32, is the longest-tenured Twin, coming up with the team at the end of the 2001 season when he was 22.

"I have no say or no control over [trades], so I feel like I've done a pretty good job of just being able to focus and go out and play," Cuddyer told Christensen. "Especially now that we're getting back into this thing, I'd like to think we're going to go after it."

Very big do the job! Customers own the assistance of very creative re-writing. I actually uniquely preferred the exact summarization specially the detailed movements from extraordinary musings.

I am glad to hear this. I also think that next year we will not have a problem signing Cuddy. He wants to finish his career as a twin. That will let us get him a decent rate. $10 mil a year is a little much, perhaps 7 or 8 while signing him for 5 or 6 years so he can finish out his career with us.
