Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Could play some outfield in 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres will consider experimenting with using Cronenworth in the outfield following the signing of Ha-seong Kim on Monday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

With Fernando Tatis and Manny Machado cemented on the left side of the infield and Cronenworth coming off a strong season at the keystone, the signing of Kim creates a bit of an infield logjam for the Friars. As a result, it looks like the club will try both Cronenworth and Kim in the outfield next spring in an attempt to possibly get both of their bats in the lineup on a regular basis. A return of the designated hitter in the National League would certainly simplify things for San Diego.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Not in lineup for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Giants.

Cronenworth will retreat to the bench after going hitless with two strikeouts over three at-bats in Game 1 of the doubleheader. Greg Garcia will take over as the second baseman, batting ninth.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Jumps in order with Tatis sitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth will start at shortstop and will bat second Wednesday against the Angels.

With Fernando Tatis receiving his first day off of the season, Cronenworth will take his spot both in the field and in the batting order. Cronenworth, who previously hasn't hit higher than fourth, has mostly been serving as the Padres' No. 7 hitter in September while slashing .211/.308/.316 on the month.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

Cronenworth has emerged as an everyday player for the Padres, as he sits for the first time since Aug. 13. With a .325/.378/.561 season slash line, it's easy to see why he keeps getting opportunities. Greg Garcia will make a rare start at second base in his absence.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Notches steal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, one RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Athletics.

Cronenworth restored a one-run lead for the Padres with his RBI double in the fourth inning. He also doubled in the second inning and stole third with two outs, but he couldn't come around to score either time. The 26-year-old has four homers, three steals, 19 RBI and 21 runs scored through 36 games.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Launches two-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Sunday's 13-2 win over Colorado.

Cronenworth's two-run blast in the seventh inning was his fourth of the season. The 26-year-old rookie owns a .361/.417/.619 slash line with 15 extra-base hits in 108 plate appearances. He continues to see time around the diamond on a regular basis.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Extends hit streak to 10 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 2-for-4 with two singles and a run scored as the Padres defeated the Mariners 10-7 in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader.

Cronenworth has now hit safely in 10 consecutive games, going 15-for-38 over that span. The second baseman has his batting average up to an impressive .349 on the campaign.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Blasts grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 3-for-4 with a grand slam and two additional runs scored in a 13-2 victory over Houston on Saturday.

A day after San Diego's major-league record of four straight games with a grand slam came to an end, Cronenworth started a new streak with a bases-clearing homer in the second inning. The long ball was part of a career night for the rookie, who established big-league highs with three hits and four RBI in the rout. Cronenworth also extended his hitting streak to seven games, a span in which he has gone 11-for-26 (.423).

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Collects two hits, stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in a 6-3 win over the Rangers on Wednesday.

Cronenworth appears to have a strong hold on a starting position in the Padres' lineup as he has now started six consecutive contests. The utility man has gone 7-for-20 (.350) during that span and is currently riding a four-game hitting streak in which he has knocked three doubles. On the season, he is slashing .333/.394/.617 with a pair of homers and nine runs scored.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth isn't starting Thursday against the Dodgers.

With Eric Hosmer available for the Padres once again, Cronenworth should see a slight downturn in playing time, but he's played well enough to maintain a fairly regular role in the lineup. Jurickson Profar will start at second base in Cronenworth's absence Thursday.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth is not in the lineup Sunday versus the Diamondbacks.

The 26-year-old started the previous six games and went 6-for-19 with two homers, a double, a triple and three RBI, but he'll take a seat for the series finale. Eric Hosmer's return from the injured list likely means Cronenworth won't be starting everyday, but he should continue seeing opportunities at second base given how well he's played. Jurickson Profar is starting at the keystone Sunday with lefty Madison Bumgarner on the mound for Arizona.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Goes yard against Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The three runs scored by the Padres in this game came through solo home runs, and Cronenworth's blast was the second of the night for San Diego. The shortstop now has two homers in his last three games, and he also extended his hitting streak to six contests, posting two multi-hit performances during that stretch.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Earning more time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth is likely to earn more time at second base once Eric Hosmer returns from the injured list, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reported in his newsletter. "That's safe to say," manager Jayce Tingler said. "He's earning his time. He's earning it with his glove and his at-bats ... He continues to play like that, he's going to play quite a bit."

Cronenworth impressed the Padres with his work ethic during the shutdown and has continued to do so in this short season. He's been playing first base while Hosmer has been out, with Jurickson Profar and Greg Garcia sharing the second base duties, but he'll slide over and still get starts at second once Hosmer returns.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Cronenworth's first homer of the year gave the Padres a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old has filled in admirably at first base while Eric Hosmer (illness) has been out. Cronenworth is batting .333 with three RBI and five runs scored in six games this season, but he'll likely return to a bench role when Hosmer is able to return.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Filling in for Hosmer again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth will start at first base and bat ninth Sunday against the Rockies.

Making his third start in five games at first base, the lefty-hitting Cronenworth looks poised to occupy the strong side of a platoon with Ty France at the position while Eric Hosmer (illness) is on the injured list. Cronenworth has batted in the bottom third of the order in all of his starts thus far, and his low placement in the lineup and lack of a full-time role could limit his utility to NL-only leagues.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Belts RBI double in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth drove in a run on a double in his first big-league at-bat Sunday.

The 26-year-old entered the game as a pinch runner in the eighth inning and came around to score on a single by Greg Garcia. Cronenworth then got a chance to hit in the ninth, driving a clutch double to deep right field to bring home a run and narrow the Padres' deficit to one run. The stellar debut could weigh on the team's mind as it decides how (or if) to juggle the roster when Jorge Mateo (illness) is ready to play.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth is part of the Padres' 30-man roster.

Cronenworth had been on the bubble for an Opening Day roster spot, but he got the nod Thursday in part due to the absence of Jorge Mateo (illness). Cronenworth is not expected to pitch this season, instead serving exclusively as a utility infielder.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Could fill open roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth could make the Opening Day roster in place of Jorge Mateo (illness) if Mateo remains out, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Cronenworth has been trending on the wrong side of the roster bubble as Opening Day approaches, but the likelihood that Mateo -- who tested positive for COVID-19 early in the month and has yet to return -- will not be ready to go by the start of the season will likely open a spot for a utility infielder. That spot would almost certainly go to Cronenworth, whom the Padres acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay last December.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Not getting mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth has yet to pitch during summer camp as the Padres are asking him to focus exclusively on his role as an infielder, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Cronenworth received the opportunity to pitch in some minor-league games while in the Rays' system last year and threw several bullpen sessions for the Padres during spring training, but he has not been tasked with throwing any bullpens during summer camp. Instead, Cronenworth is focusing on taking reps in the infield, and he remains on the bubble for a spot on the team's initial 30-man roster.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Unlikely to make 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cronenworth does not have a clear path to making the Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of reports.

San Diego's recent addition of Jorge Mateo (illness) may have pushed Cronenworth out of a roster spot, though it remains unclear when Mateo will be able to join the team. While Cronenworth's ability to pitch adds some attractiveness to his profile, the Padres have a stacked bullpen and are therefore less likely to take his two-way ability into consideration when settling on their Opening Day roster.
