News 
 Ryan McMahon went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in the Rockies' 6-6 tie against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Fri, Mar 6th
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 
 The Rockies are still going to find a way to screw up either Ryan McMahon or Garrett Hampson even with the DH. If Daniel Murphy can DH, then McMahon should see everyday playing time.
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
 McMahon didn't play every day as some expected but he still managed 24 homers. With more playing time this year, that could spike to 30+ and his .250 BA is likely to improve as well considering his aptitude in that department throughout the minors.
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
  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.
