C.J. Cron, Tigers agree to one-year deal

Free agent first baseman C.J. Cron has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Tigers worth $6.1 million, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Impact

The Tigers signed both Cron and Jonathan Schoop on Saturday as they attempt to rebuild the right side of their infield, at least in the short term. In 2019, Cron hit 25 home runs to go with a .253 batting average.

C.J. Cron non-tendered by Twins

First baseman C.J. Cron was non-tendered by the Minnesota Twins on Monday and is now a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

Cron had thumb surgery in October, and his health was likely a contributing factor in Minnesota's decision. Cron has 55 home runs over his last two seasons, but the team that signs him will have to do their homework on his thumb injury to be certain that he will be ready to contribute at the beginning of next season.

C.J. Cron undergoes thumb procedure

C.J. Cron had a surgical debridement of his right thumb last week.

Fantasy Impact

Cron's procedure will remove dead or unhealthy tissue from the area. He will miss roughly six-to-eight weeks, but should be ready for spring training. Cron slashed .253/.311/.469 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI in 125 games during 2019.
