Rays' C.J. Cron: Clubs 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, two RBI and a walk Sunday against the Athletics.

Cron belted a two-run homer to kick off the scoring in the first inning, notching his 63rd and 64th RBI of the 2018 campaign. He'll continue to share playing time at first base with Jake Bauers down the stretch of the regular season. Cron sports a .252/.319/.485 slash line through 126 games this year.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Knocks cover off ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron went 2-for-5 with a double and a solo home run in a win over the Indians on Sunday.

Cron belted both his 25th double and 26th homer of the season off Carlos Carrasco, with the latter serving as his second round tripper in the last three games. The 28-year-old continues to enjoy semi-regular playing time and he's now just nine RBI from eclipsing the career-high 69 he established in 2016.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Big day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron went 4-for-5 with a home run, a double, one RBI, two runs scored and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Braves.

Cron connected for his 25th home run to lead off the third inning as part of a season-high four-hit night. The 28-year-old has been sharing time as the designated hitter with Ji-Man Choi, but Cron has been making the most of his playing time of late with a .366 average (15-for-41) with three homers over his last 11 games to raise his slash line to .256/.324/.487.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Cron is on the bench for the second time in the series after going 0-for-2 while reaching base on a hit by pitch and a walk in Saturday's 5-1 win. Ji-Man Choi will spell Cron at designated hitter in Sunday's matinee, and it appears likely that the duo could continue to share at-bats the rest of the way.

Rays' C.J. Cron: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron has passed through waivers and is eligible to be traded, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Manager Kevin Cash basically summed up the logic behind putting Cron on waivers, stating, "There are players on this roster right now we want to get some looks at, and in fairness to him they're going to come at the expense of some of his at-bats." Dating back to Aug. 10, Cron has started just six of the club's last 11 games, during which he's hit .360 with an OPS of 1.080, so it appears his productivity doesn't have much correlation with the 28-year-old's playing time, which echoes Cash's remark. Though no club has claimed him just yet, there's still 10 days to go for a trade to be worked out in order for Cron to be eligible for postseason play.
