Jake Cronenworth
26-Year-Old ShortstopSS
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Padres acquired Tommy Pham and a good prospect in an offseason trade that sent Hunter Renfroe and a great prospect (Xavier Edwards) to the Rays. That good prospect was Cronenworth, a big-league-ready infielder (shortstop by trade) who doubles as a right-handed reliever. He missed a third of the season with a hamstring injury, but led the International League with a .334 AVG and ranked fourth with a 0.79 BB/K. It was his age-25 season, but Cronenworth's plate skills seem legitimate, and he may end up with a 55-grade hit tool. Power probably won't be a big part of his game, but he could chip in 10-15 steals. He would need at least one injury to get starts on the left side of the infield and will be competing with newly-acquired Jurickson Profar and upwards of five other internal options for time at the keystone. His two-way ability could work as a tie breaker and give him the edge if Profar falters. Read Past Outlooks
Shipped to San Diego
SSSan Diego Padres
December 6, 2019
Cronenworth has been traded from the Rays to the Padres along with Tommy Pham in exchange for Hunter Renfroe and Xavier Edwards, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
A two-way prospect who can work as a middle infielder or right-handed reliever, Cronenworth is close to big-league ready. In his age-25 season at Triple-A he logged a .334/.429/.520 slash line with 10 home runs, 12 steals, a 12.1 percent walk rate and 15.3 percent strikeout rate in 88 games. The Padres have a lot of middling options at second base, led by Jurickson Profar, and Cronenworth could realistically emerge as the best option at the keystone at some point in 2020. His two-way versatility could work as a tie breaker for holding a spot on the 26-man roster.
