1B - FA
Free agent C.J. Cron, who has knee surgery last August, has been cleared for full activity. He's been hitting and sprinting and is on track to be ready for the start of spring training, according to Jason Beck.
Cron dislocated his left kneecap back in August after only playing in 13 games for the Tigers. He slashed .190/.346/.548 with four home runs over 42 at-bats. Cron has operated as a designated hitter and a first baseman throughout his career but the free agent market has been very slow for potential DH's. Teams are awaiting MLB's decision on a universal DH and until there is clarity there, Cron could remain unsigned.
C.J. Cron, who injured his left knee in a game against the White Sox on August 10th, has been transferred to the 45-day IL. He will not return this season.
Cron finishes the season slashing .190/.346/.548 with four home runs in 42 at-bats.
Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire says C.J. Cron will undergo season-ending knee surgery.
Cron was placed on the injured list earlier this week with a dislocated knee cap. He later said he would have to undergo surgery at some point and it appears that time is coming sooner rather than later. He's set to become a free agent after the season.
C.J. Cron acknowledged on Wednesday that he'll need surgery on his injured knee.
Cron dislocated his kneecap during Monday's game and was placed on the IL on Tuesday. The 30-year-old had signed a one-year deal with the Tigers over the offseason. It still remains to be seen how long he'll ultimately be sidelined for, but fantasy owners can feel free to move on.
The Tigers placed 1B C.J. Cron on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain.
Cron left Monday's game after a battled ball hit him in the leg as he was playing first base. The severity of the injury is unknown as of now. Willi Castro has taken his spot on Detroit's roster.
