Jake Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a double on Friday.
Cronenworth's hot start to the season has been chilled over the past couple weeks. He's hitting just .200 in his last 15 games. He makes enough contact to start him in your fantasy lineup when you can, as he's unlikely to hurt you in any particular category. Cronenworth has secured his spot as the everyday second baseman in San Diego, so playing time will not be an issue any time soon.
Jake Cronenworth went 2-for-3 with two singles and a run scored in the Padres' loss to the Brewers on Monday.
Cronenworth is now hitting .311 on the season with five home runs. He's proven to be one of the more valuable second basemen in all of baseball so far this season. With the amount of contact he makes, he has earned his place as a starter in most fantasy formats.
Jake Cronenworth went 2-3 with two singles, a run scored, and a strikeout on Monday.
Cronenworth continues to rake this year, and now boasts a slash line of .295/.373/.417 with 3 home runs. He has been one of the more valuable players who has multi-positional eligibility in the infield in most leagues. It's not likely Cronenworth will finish the year with this stellar of a line, but Cronenworth will certainly not hurt your team with his elite strikeout rate and solid chase rate. He can only be a plus for your team by boosting your batting average, hits, and runs scored numbers.
Jake Cronenworth went 3-4 with three singles and a walk in the Padres' win over the Cardinals on Saturday.
Cronenworth has quietly been fantastic early in the 2021 season. He's currently slashing .289/.367/.416 with 3 home runs. He also has eligibility at multiple positions in most formats. Cronenworth has cemented his role as the everyday second baseman in San Diego, and will continue to see plenty of playing time going forward. Power will always be the question with Cronenworth, as his average exit velocity and hard hit rate leave something to be desired. That being said, his max exit velocity is solid for a second baseman, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for Cronenworth to reach 15 home runs with the amount of playing time he should get the rest of the season. Cronenworth's elite bat-to-ball skills and steady walk rate means Cronenworth will rarely hurt you when starting him. Continue plugging and playing Cronenworth in your starting lineup when you can.
Jake Cronenworth went 2-4 with a single, a double, and a walk in the Padres' win over the Rockies on Tuesday.
Cronenworth has been one of the most consistent producers in the San Diego lineup this year. He's now slashing .286/.364/.429 on the young season. His power numbers aren't going to wow anyone. His average is solid, but not elite. He probably won't be an All Star. All that being said, Cronenworth has shown that he has the makeup to be a solid contributor in both the Padres lineup and in just about any fantasy lineup as well. Cronenworth should still be eligible at multiple positions in most formats, which only increases his value. The guy continues to hit, which means you should plug and play him when you can. After many being down on him during draft season, Cronenworth has been one of the pleasant fantasy surprises early in 2021.
