On a team with two former American League Most Valuable Players, it can prove difficult to find recognition.
Michael Cuddyer has set himself apart from all other Twins players this season, leading to his first-ever All-Star Game selection.
Cuddyer, a fan favorite for years, has been "Mr. Twin." He constantly does whatever is asked of him from manager Ron Gardenhire. This includes playing all over the field: be it Right Field, First Base, Second Base, Third Base, Ball Boy, Commentator or General Manager.
Cuddyer has played everywhere, stayed healthy (which seems impossible for most who call Target Field home), and produced all season.
His offensive numbers lead the Twins in all major categories except for runs batted in (42 compared with Danny Valencia's 45).
Cuddyer is in his final season of his contract with the Twins, and there has been rumors of the Twins shopping Cuddyer prior to the trade deadline before they rallied back into the playoff race, and I personally would be shocked if he were to be moved now.
