Given that it takes a lot out of any professional to be part of the Major League Baseball action, not everyone can live up to their full potential. However, the same cannot be said for 27-year-old infielder turned reliever Jose Cuas who broke down whilst talking about his journey from FedEx to MLB. 

Entering the latest game of Kansas City Royals in relief of starter Daniel Lynch in the fifth inning with a man on first and no outs, the third baseman looked mighty calm, cool and collected for someone making his debut. Having made easy outs for a scoreless debut inning, Jose Cuas went on to impressive plenty with his sheer athleticism in and around the bullpen mound.

Although the Royal went on to lose the showdown against Guardians 8-3 on Tuesday, there won’t be many who would overlook the applaud-worthy effort of dynamic Jose Cuas on the big stage.

It’s a dream come true, being a kid from New York, everything I’ve been through in my playing career, to be here in a Major League stadium with a chance to pitch, I can’t even say I dreamed about it,” Royals star added. “It’s beyond my dreams.”

Given that Cuas’ 95mph sidearm delivery can cause havoc in the circuit, he surely has signed of great promise for the franchise. Moreover, the 27-year-old can be a key piece for the Royals as they evidently need to improve beyond high-leverage relievers – Josh Staumont and Scott Barlow.

Great debut. Those get overshadowed in a tough loss,” Royals manager Mike Matheny spoke about Jose Cuas. “It’s a different look. We talk about deception, talk about having something that isn’t the same slot, the same shape, and he’s got good stuff to go with it.”

The journey of Jose Cuas making it into MLB is nothing less than a fairy-tale story. Having signed for Long Island Ducks, wherein he was spotted by 6xAll-Star Francisco Rodriguez whilst throwing a sidearm. As intrigued as the Rodriguez was, he instructed Cuas to keep on trying sidearm. This resulted in Jose Cuas getting a more natural hang of the game, which helped his success against the bigger guns.
