Twins' C.J. Cron: Avoids arbitration with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron agreed to a one-year, $4.8 million contract with Minnesota on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Cron was scooped up off waivers by the Twins after being designated for assignment by the Rays. He should add much-needed power to Minnesota's lineup in 2019 after launching 30 homers a year ago.

Twins' C.J. Cron: Claimed by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Monday.

Cron was scooped up by the Twins after being designated for assignment by Tampa Bay last week. The 28-year-old, who hit .253/.323/.493 with 30 homers across 140 games in 2018, will likely slide in as Minnesota's primary first baseman following the retirement of Joe Mauer.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron was removed from the Rays' 40-man roster Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cron cranked 30 home runs over 140 games for the Rays in 2018, but he's been moved off the 40-man roster with the team deciding he's not worth $5-plus million for 2019. Tampa Bay could pull off a trade, or he could be claimed off waivers or simply head to free agency.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Slugs 30th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

Cron deposited a Ryan Borucki fastball into the seats in the bottom of the second. He's reached the 30-homer benchmark in his career-best campaign, during which he's posted 74 RBI, scored 67 runs and slashed .256/.324/.497 while leaning heavily on production versus southpaws (a standout .381 wOBA and .905 OPS in that split heading into this contest). Cron, who turns 29 in January, should at least retain that type of role heading into his second year of arbitration in 2019 yet might get a chance to earn more depending on Tampa Bay's roster construction.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Cron provided the only offense of the day for the Rays with a solo shot in the seventh inning, as they suffered a 12-1 blowout loss. The homer was his 29th of the season, which extends his career high in that category. He now owns a .255 batting average with 28 doubles and 72 RBI over 546 plate appearances on the year.
