5.22.16:  At the plate, Cunningham hits from the left side. He has good bat speed and balance with quick hands and a short bat path. Showed high contact skills with the ability to spoil pitches when behind in the count, flicking them over the dugout. Good approach, using the whole field. On the mound, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with easy effort, started the first inning in the mid-80s, ramped up to 89-91 at the end of the inning to get out of a jam.
4.11.16:  Cunningham has an athletic, projectable frame that he can still add some weight too. He hits from the left side and showed a good approach, using the entire field. He has a short swing with gap power to all fields. On the mound, Cunningham has a drop and drive delivery and throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a long, loose arm action that is lightning quick and generates easy velocity. His shoulders are level and closed as he strides to a square landing with a fall off finish. Cunningham’s fastball sat 88-89 in his first few innings with late run to it, and he was still holding 86 in the fourth. His changeup had run to it and was 74-80. He threw a good power slider with 10/4 action that he slowed his arm down on a bit, running 67-73, with the pitch being sharper at the higher end of the range. He showed good command with his fastball, moving it around the strike zone.
11/9/2014:  Cunningham is 6-foot-2 and has a lanky frame that he can add weight too. He throws from a high three-quarters slot and generates easy velocity in spite of a short arm action due to a wrap. He is smooth through his delivery and lands open before falling off after release. Cunningham’s fastball sat 82-83 and touched 84 with slight late run to it. His command was better in the wind-up than in the stretch, due to some arm drag. Cunningham also threw an 11/5 curveball that had good bite to it and ran 65-69.  Offensively, Cunningham is a left-handed hitting Outfielder with the smooth stroke. He sets up in a balanced athletic stance with high hands. Cunningham takes a short pass to the ball and is able to create a lot of backspin through extension. He has the ability to hit the ball from gap-to-gap with a nice line drive approach.  In the future, he has the ability to add some weight to his frame, create more violence in his swing, and hit for both average and power.  In the field, Cunningham is a smooth athlete with solid actions and a good route runner. He has slightly above average arm strength for the position at 83 mph and is able to make accurate on-line throws that carry through the bag.
