Milton Cuyler, Jr. (born October 7, 1968) is a former major league outfielder drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the second round of the 1986 amateur draft. He finished third behind Juan Guzman and winner Chuck Knoblauch for the 1991 American League Rookie of the Year award.

After failing to live up to his early promise, he was released by the Tigers following the 1995 season. He signed as a free agent with the Boston Red Sox for 1996, but saw very little activity with the Sox (110 at bats in only 50 games for a .200 batting average). He signed with the Montreal Expos following the season, but failed to make the team that Spring. He appeared in seven games for the Texas Rangers in September 1998, and spent the 1999 season in their minor league system before calling it a career. In 490 games from 1990–1998, Cuyler tallied 329 hits, 10 home runs and 119 runs batted in with a .237 career average. He is currently[when?] the hitting coach for the Minnesota Twins' Rookie affiliate, the Gulf Coast League Twins.
