Jake Cronenworth News
San Diego Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth went 2-for-4 with two RBI Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cronenworth delivered a clutch two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning to cement the victory for the Friars, recording his eighth and ninth RBI. The 27-year-old has cooled off at the dish, slashing .263/.338/.381 with two homers, three steals and 24 runs-plus-RBI in 135 plate appearances. Tonight was his first multihit game since April 25. The versatile lefty is still exhibiting great plate discipline but has lacked in the hard-hit department. Still, he has a legitimate shot at a 15/15 season and his positional flexibility makes him a strong platoon player in standard mixed leagues.
San Diego Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth and catcher Victor Caratini are both getting the night off on Wednesday. Caratini had played in eight of the team's last 10 games, while Wednesday marks just the second time this year Cronenworth is out of the lineup. Through 25 games this season, Cronenworth is hitting .253 with a .697 OPS, while Caratini is hitting .236 with a .645 OPS in 20 games. Luis Campusano will get the start behind the plate and bat seventh, while Ha-Seong Kim will play at second base and hit eighth.
San Diego Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth is getting his first day off of the year as the team faces Adrian Houser and the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. Ha-Seong Kim is playing second base and batting seventh in the game. Cronenworth is off to a nice start to the year. Through 19 games, he's slashing .293/.357/.427 with one home run, five doubles, four RBI and 10 runs. He has an 11.8% strikeout rate and an 8.2% walk rate. Expect to see him back in the lineup when the team faces Walker Buehler and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.
Jake Cronenworth enjoyed a fantastic rookie campaign with San Diego in 2020, hitting .285/.354/.477 with four homers and three steals over 192 PAs. His plate discipline was excellent, with a 9.4 BB% against a 15.6 K% backed by both his MiLB resume and outstanding peripherals (22.4% chase rate, 5.8 SwStr%). His .324 BABIP also looks sustainable thanks to an above-average 25.2 LD% and below-average 29.4 FB%. In fact, Cronenworth's .324 xBA suggests that he offers significant batting average upside! Sadly, that strong average comes at the expense of power potential. Cronenworth doesn't hit that many flies, and his 91.5 mph average airborne exit velocity was below-average. He should still get a handful of homers thanks to his solid 10.5% rate of Brls/BBE, and Baseball Savant thought he deserved a higher slugging percentage as well at .541. The Padres hit Cronenworth everywhere in 2020, and his fantasy stock would improve if he looks like he'll lock down a significant lineup spot in Spring Training. Overall, the 26-year-old has a similar profile to Placido Polanco: a consistent producer who savvy fantasy managers would take in the later rounds to offset batting average risk elsewhere in their lineups. Cronenworth is eligible at three different positions (1B, 2B, SS) and affordably-priced at an ADP of 150.68, making him a great addition regardless.
