Cuddington has a big strong frame. He hits from the right side, very quick to contact and strong through it, has power to his pull side and his swing has natural loft built into it. On the mound, fastball was 78-81 with late run. Curveball was 67-69 with sharp 11/5 break to it.

Cuddington has a big strong frame. He hits from the right side from a relaxed stance, quick to the ball, uphill swing path with strength at contact and extension through the ball, swing generates carry. Stayed inside during the game and approach was very much gap to gap. Has power and drove the ball a few times. The first swing was a double to center, the third swing a deep sacrifice fly to center, and the final swing in the video was a lineout at the second baseman. Consistent barrel contact the entire game.
