Player Outlook
He hit the ground running in his first three major-league seasons, but it's fair to say Jake Cronenworth played a role in the overall disappointment that emanated from San Diego last year. After registering a combined .770 OPS (117 OPS+) between 2020-22, he stumbled to a .689 OPS (92 OPS+) over 522 plate appearances in 2023. The batting average, the on-base skills, the slugging percentage -- all of his rate stats fell off in a major way, and with that came a drastic dip in counting-stats production. Cronenworth signed a seven-year, $80 million contract extension with the Padres last March and is not at risk of losing any sort of playing time in the immediate future, but he's also not a safe bet to fully rebound at age 30 and there are a lot of higher-upside options on the board at both first base and second base.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Goes back-to-back in first inning

    Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Dodgers. Cronenworth got things started for the Padres by going back-to-back with Fernando Tatis off Walker Buehler in the opening inning. He went hitless the rest of the afternoon but continues to be one of the Padres' best bats. He had a 12-game hit streak that came to an end Friday and has been showing increased power early on. His .503 slug percentage is fourth among all first basemen and is a significant personal improvement after averaging a .384 slugging over his last two seasons. For the year, Cronenworth is now slashing .285/.349/.503 with seven homers, 27 RBI, 20 runs and a 14:27 BB:K in 169 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Notches first steal

    Cronenworth went 2-for-4 with a run and a stolen base Monday in a 6-3 victory versus the Cubs. Cronenworth's first theft of the campaign came as part of a double steal with Fernando Tatis in the sixth inning, and both players subsequently came home on a Jurickson Profar single. Cronenworth doesn't typically offer much in terms of speed, though he did swipe a career-high six bags last season. The first baseman is working on a 10-game hitting streak during which he has slashed .357/.378/.690 with three homers, 10 RBI and seven runs.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Three hits Tuesday

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Back in lineup Friday

    Cronenworth (calf) is starting at first base and hitting third in the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cronenworth left Monday's game against the Brewers after experiencing calf tightness. He sat out the Padres' last two games, and the team's day off Thursday has given the 30-year-old enough time to recover. Cronenworth is slashing .254/.333/.465 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 81 plate appearances to start the season.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Out for second straight game

    Cronenworth (calf) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Cronenworth will get a second straight game off to heal up from a tight calf that forced him out of Monday's 7-3 win in the series opener. The Padres are hoping that a pair of days off plus Thursday's team off day will provide sufficient time for Cronenworth to recover before the start of this weekend's three-game series with Toronto. Matthew Batten will spell Cronenworth at first base Wednesday.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Sitting out with calf injury

    Cronenworth (calf) is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Milwaukee. Cronenworth was pulled from Monday's contest with calf tightness, so it's no surprise to see him sitting a day later. The good news is that he has not been placed on the injured list as the Padres brought up Matthew Batten as infield protection, projecting some apparent optimism that it's a day-to-day situation for Cronenworth. Jurickson Profar will handle first base Tuesday, while Jose Azocar will be in left field.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Nursing calf issue

    Cronenworth left Monday's game against the Brewers after experiencing tightness in his calf, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cronenworth reportedly felt the issue while trying to reach base on a groundout during the eighth inning, but skipper Mike Shildt said after the game that it's too early to know if the injury will force Cronenworth to miss additional time. The 30-year-old will be considered day-to-day until the medical staff has more information to share.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Launches homer Friday

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Drives in two

    Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI double during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Giants.

He's now generated multiple RBI in back-to-back games dating back to San Diego's two-game series in South Korea against the Dodgers and has already driven in six on the season.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Starting in spring opener

    Cronenworth (wrist) will start at first base and bat third in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers. Cronenworth didn't play after Aug. 25 last season due to a fractured right wrist, but he avoided surgery to address the injury and appears to have experienced no limitations thus far in spring training. With Xander Bogaerts making the move to second base in 2024 and Ha-Seong Kim entrenched as an everyday starter at shortstop, Cronenworth should see an even higher volume of starts at first base during the upcoming season than he did in 2023, when he made 94 starts at the position. Cronenworth is still expected to carry middle-infield eligibility in most leagues this season after he made 30 starts at the keystone in 2023.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Expected to avoid surgery

    Cronenworth is not expected to need surgery to repair his fractured right wrist, MLB.com reports. Undergoing surgery would no doubt end his season, although it would still seem to be a long shot that he makes it back given that he'll be in a cast for several weeks. With the Padres' playoff hopes growing slimmer by the day, it makes little sense for Cronenworth to rush back.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Removed after HBP on wrist

    Cronenworth was lifted from Friday's game in Milwaukee after being hit on the right wrist by a pitch, 97.3 The Fan reports. A 92 mph Andrew Chafin fastball caught Cronenworth in a bad spot and he was quickly removed from the game. The infielder is no doubt headed for X-rays, with an update on his condition possibly available later Friday. Cronenworth was 1-for-3 with a single in addition to the hit by pitch before exiting.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Three hits, two RBI in loss

    Cronenworth went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks. Cronenworth hit an RBI single in the first inning and an RBI double in the seventh to account for half of the Padres' run production. The infielder has nine multi-hit efforts over his last 15 games, a stretch that has raised his batting average from .206 to .232 on the year. He's added a .706 OPS, 10 home runs, six stolen bases, 46 RBI and 52 runs scored through 116 contests overall.
