Noel A. Cuevas (born October 2, 1991) is a Puerto Rican professional baseball outfielder for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Cuevas was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 21st round of the 2010 Major League Baseball draft out of Universidad Interamericana in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

After a brief appearance (3 games) with the Arizona League Dodgers in 2010, he began 2011 with the Ogden Raptors of the Pioneer League (baseball), where he hit .285 in 60 games. He also appeared in 23 games with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, but hit just .220 with them. In 2012, he played 23 games in the Arizona League, 13 in the Pioneer League and 50 in the Midwest League with the Great Lakes Loons. Overall, he hit .267. In 2014, he spent the entire season with the Quakes and hit .284 with 12 homers and 66 RBI in 123 games. He made the mid-season California League all-star team.[1] He was promoted in 2014 to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts of the Southern League and hit .231 in 131 games.

On December 16, 2014, he was traded to the Colorado Rockies as the player to be named later in the previous trade that sent pitcher Juan Nicasio to the Dodgers.[2] The Rockies added Cuevas to their 40-man roster on November 7, 2017.[3] He was called up to the majors for the first time on April 22, 2018, and made his debut that day.
