News 
 Christian Walker is making a slow start to ramping up Spring Training workouts due to general body soreness, according to manager Tory Lovullo.

Detroit Tigers first baseman C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in a 13-9 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Notes 
 First base seems to be Walker's job to lose. He was buried for the longest time before emerging in Arizona that we have to give him another shot for a full season to see if he's legitimate or not.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
With power being downplayed this year in a sprint of a season, Cron becomes more and more attractive as a late-round play if you wait at first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Walker finished as a top 15 first basemen with a near-identical stat-line to Paul Goldschmidt. He slowed down in the second half and the batting average won't be useful but unless Seth Beer forces Arizona's hand, Walker should again get 25+ homers for fantasy owners this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Cron had 30 homers in 2018 and followed it up with 25 last year despite just 125 games played. Should he see a full season of health, 35 or even 40 is a possibility but the cost is a medicore at best batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Nice late round 1B or CI option. Hits the ball very hard so the power should remain.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Tremendous advanced statistics in 2019 shine a bright light on his 2020 outlook. Should play everyday in the heart of the Tigers lineup. Solid late round option.
