Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Noel Cuevas began his professional career in 2010 at 18 years old. He was taken by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 21st round of the 2010 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Manny Estrada.

The speedy ballplayer stole 15 bases his second campaign, then upped that mark to 35 in 2012 and to 38 in 2013. 2013 was a breakout campaign for Cuevas -- playing for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, he hit .284/.341/.454 with 12 home runs, 25 doubles, 10 triples, 80 runs scored and 135 hits in 123 games, though he did not make the California League All-Star team. After a down year in 2014, Cuevas was traded to the Colorado Rockies as the player to be named later in a deal that sent pitcher Juan Nicasio to the Dodgers. Cuevas played for the New Britain Rock Cats in 2015, stealing 31 bags.

Noel came to the majors with the 2018 Colorado Rockies, appearing in 75 games, mostly in right field and left field, and as a pinch-hitter. The following year he was in one game for the 2019 Rockies. He became a free agent, and was signed in December by the Cubs, but was released in late May by the 2020 Cubs.
