C.J. Cron Heading To Tigers

The Detroit Tigers signed first baseman C.J. Cron to a one-year, $6.1 million deal on Saturday, according to a source. The 29-year-old will be the starting first baseman for the rebuilding Tigers in 2020 after recording a career-high 78 RBI while hitting .253 with 23 home runs and a .311 on-base percentage in 125 games for the Twins. Cron required offseason surgery on his right thumb, but he should be fine for spring training and will be a power-only corner infield option in deep mixed and AL-only leagues next season. A move to Detroit slightly lowers his fantasy appeal. Cron has just 139 career walks and 566 strikeouts, so he won't help you in the average department.

C.J. Cron Becomes Free Agent

The Minnesota Twins didn't tender a contract to first baseman C.J. Cron on Monday, making him a free agent, according to a source. Cron was productive in his lone season with the Twins, hitting .253/.311/.469 with 25 home runs, 51 runs and 78 RBI in his 458 at-bats. The power is nice -- he had 30 long balls in 2018 with the Rays -- but he could find a cold market because he's limited defensively. Other than the power, Cron doesn't offer fantasy owners much.

C.J. Cron May Need Surgery

Minnesota Twins first baseman C.J. Cron (thumb), who had been bothered by a bone bruise in his thumb for most of the second half of the season, could need surgery to fix the issue. Cron was put on the injured list twice, and the injured limited his ability at the plate down the stretch. The 29-year-old finished the season hitting .253/.311/.469 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI, but he was much better in the first half before his thumb injury. Cron has some pop and can drive in runs but doesn't do much else for fantasy owners. You can do much worse for a corner infielder in AL-only leagues, though.
