Yes, he's signed through 2014. His contract is a little pricey (he was signed to a 3yr/31.5m deal) compared to Willingham (3yr/21m) but would probably command less in return than Willingham.
Though the degree to which Cuddyer is available is completely my own speculation, I imagine that with the Rox being 14.5 games out and with no hope of catching LAD, it might be wise for them to shop players (such as Cuddyer) who are not in their long term plans.
