1B - LAA
Expert NoteView More Notes
If Cron can get himself 500 at bats, it's clear that he has the ability to hit 25 homers with 90 RBIs while batting near .280. It isn't easy to find that type of production out of a late round pick so target him if you need a utility player late.

C.J. Cron scores vs. Padres on Monday
1B C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 with a run in the Cactus League against the Padres on Monday.
C.J. Cron is in a first base playing time battle with Luis Valbuena, as well as the two rookies, Jefry Marte and Matt Thiass. Cron and Valbuena are both better against right-handed pitching than left-handers, so a straight platoon will not work. Despite posting career-highs with .278 AVG, .325 OBP and .467 SLG in an injury-shortened 2016, C.J. Cron has failed to give fantasy owners the level of production needed in corner infield. There is potential for a breakout. The 27-year-old only has 1027 big league at-bats, and made improvements in 2016 with a drop in his strikeout rate below 20% for the first time and a jump in the balls he was sending opposite field. He also dropped his groundball rate from 44.5% to 41.2% but his HR/FB fell for the third straight year to 12.1%.
