C.J. Cron News
Colorado Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron (hand) has returned to the starting lineup on Sunday against the San Diego Padres. The veteran slugger missed the previous three games with a sore hand after being hit by a pitch on Wednesday but he's locked in on Sunday and batting cleanup. Cron has mashed 29 home runs with a career-high 101 RBI on the season.
Colorado Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron (hand) remains out of the starting lineup on Friday against the San Diego Padres. Cron will miss his second straight game after leaving Wednesday's contest early when he was hit by a pitch on his left hand. Consider him day-to-day for now. The 32-year-old has been an excellent source of power at Coors Field in 2022, as he has 29 home runs and 101 RBI in 547 at-bats. Rookie Michael Toglia will get another start at first base and hit fifth on Friday against Padres left-hander Sean Manaea. Toglia will be playing in his 21st major-league game on Friday, and he's gone 17-for-74 (.230) with two home runs and 10 RBI.
Colorado Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron (hand) is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants. Cron was hit in the hand by a pitch on Wednesday and is dealing with a left hand contusion, so he'll sit out for at least one game. The right-handed power hitter is batting .238 (15-for-63) with five dingers, 15 RBI and 10 runs scored in 17 games this month, so fantasy managers will be hoping he doesn't miss too many games with the regular season winding down. Rookie Michael Toglia is starting at first base on Thursday and is hitting fifth against Giants right-hander John Brebbia. Toglia will only be playing in his 19th major-league game. He's gone 15-for-66 (.227) with two homers, six doubles and 10 RBI in the early going.
Colorado Rockies' first baseman C.J. Cron slashed .281/.375/.530 with 28 home runs, 92 RBI, 70 runs scored, and one stolen base over 142 games in 2021. The Rockies slugger finished the season strong, slashing .337/.408/.643 with 14 homers over the final two months. He signed a two-year, $14.5 million extension with Colorado during the offseason, with the majority of his production coming from the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. The 32-year-old posted a .445 WOBA and mashed 19 of his 28 homers at home last season. He is expected to hit cleanup for a mediocre Rockies lineup but plays in the most hitter-friendly park in baseball. He's increased his launch angle; as a result, he averaged 21 homers with a .486 slugging percentage over his last three seasons. Steamer is on board with Cron being productive in 2022, projecting a .363 WOBA with a .268/.359/.509 slash line with 30 home runs. According to RotoBaller's Expected Draft Values, Cron's Steamer projection makes him roughly fair value at his current NFBC ADP of 133. Cron should provide fantasy managers 25-plus homers and is a borderline top-10 first baseman in 2022 fantasy drafts, especially in leagues that reward OBP as opposed to batting average.
