Player Outlook
He hit the ground running in his first three major-league seasons, but it's fair to say Jake Cronenworth played a role in the overall disappointment that emanated from San Diego last year. After registering a combined .770 OPS (117 OPS+) between 2020-22, he stumbled to a .689 OPS (92 OPS+) over 522 plate appearances in 2023. The batting average, the on-base skills, the slugging percentage -- all of his rate stats fell off in a major way, and with that came a drastic dip in counting-stats production. Cronenworth signed a seven-year, $80 million contract extension with the Padres last March and is not at risk of losing any sort of playing time in the immediate future, but he's also not a safe bet to fully rebound at age 30 and there are a lot of higher-upside options on the board at both first base and second base.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Back in lineup Friday

    Cronenworth (calf) is starting at first base and hitting third in the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cronenworth left Monday's game against the Brewers after experiencing calf tightness. He sat out the Padres' last two games, and the team's day off Thursday has given the 30-year-old enough time to recover. Cronenworth is slashing .254/.333/.465 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 81 plate appearances to start the season.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Out for second straight game

    Cronenworth (calf) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Cronenworth will get a second straight game off to heal up from a tight calf that forced him out of Monday's 7-3 win in the series opener. The Padres are hoping that a pair of days off plus Thursday's team off day will provide sufficient time for Cronenworth to recover before the start of this weekend's three-game series with Toronto. Matthew Batten will spell Cronenworth at first base Wednesday.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Sitting out with calf injury

    Cronenworth (calf) is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Milwaukee. Cronenworth was pulled from Monday's contest with calf tightness, so it's no surprise to see him sitting a day later. The good news is that he has not been placed on the injured list as the Padres brought up Matthew Batten as infield protection, projecting some apparent optimism that it's a day-to-day situation for Cronenworth. Jurickson Profar will handle first base Tuesday, while Jose Azocar will be in left field.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Nursing calf issue

    Cronenworth left Monday's game against the Brewers after experiencing tightness in his calf, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cronenworth reportedly felt the issue while trying to reach base on a groundout during the eighth inning, but skipper Mike Shildt said after the game that it's too early to know if the injury will force Cronenworth to miss additional time. The 30-year-old will be considered day-to-day until the medical staff has more information to share.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Launches homer Friday

    Cronenworth went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in an extra-innings 8-7 win against the Dodgers on Friday. Cronenworth's lone hit in the contest was a sixth-inning solo blast that brought San Diego within three runs. It was his third homer of the campaign, all of which have come over his past four contests. Cronenworth hit 21 long balls in 2021 but went deep just 10 times over 521 plate appearances last season.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Drives in two

    Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI double during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Giants. Cronenworth plated Xander Bogaerts and Jackson Merrill on a seventh-inning double as part of a four-run frame for the Padres. He's now generated multiple RBI in back-to-back games dating back to San Diego's two-game series in South Korea against the Dodgers and has already driven in six on the season.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Starting in spring opener

    Cronenworth (wrist) will start at first base and bat third in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers. Cronenworth didn't play after Aug. 25 last season due to a fractured right wrist, but he avoided surgery to address the injury and appears to have experienced no limitations thus far in spring training. With Xander Bogaerts making the move to second base in 2024 and Ha-Seong Kim entrenched as an everyday starter at shortstop, Cronenworth should see an even higher volume of starts at first base during the upcoming season than he did in 2023, when he made 94 starts at the position. Cronenworth is still expected to carry middle-infield eligibility in most leagues this season after he made 30 starts at the keystone in 2023.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Expected to avoid surgery

    Cronenworth is not expected to need surgery to repair his fractured right wrist, MLB.com reports. Undergoing surgery would no doubt end his season, although it would still seem to be a long shot that he makes it back given that he'll be in a cast for several weeks. With the Padres' playoff hopes growing slimmer by the day, it makes little sense for Cronenworth to rush back.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Removed after HBP on wrist

    Cronenworth was lifted from Friday's game in Milwaukee after being hit on the right wrist by a pitch, 97.3 The Fan reports. A 92 mph Andrew Chafin fastball caught Cronenworth in a bad spot and he was quickly removed from the game. The infielder is no doubt headed for X-rays, with an update on his condition possibly available later Friday. Cronenworth was 1-for-3 with a single in addition to the hit by pitch before exiting.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Three hits, two RBI in loss

    Cronenworth went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks. Cronenworth hit an RBI single in the first inning and an RBI double in the seventh to account for half of the Padres' run production. The infielder has nine multi-hit efforts over his last 15 games, a stretch that has raised his batting average from .206 to .232 on the year. He's added a .706 OPS, 10 home runs, six stolen bases, 46 RBI and 52 runs scored through 116 contests overall.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Knocks 10th home run

    Cronenworth went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's win against the Diamondbacks. Cronenworth drilled a two-run shot during San Diego's four-run third inning. It was his 10th long ball of the year and second in his last five appearances immediately following a 25-game homerless drought. Despite the recent lack of power, Cronenworth has produced a 1.085 OPS over his last 13 games, raising his season slash line to .229/.315/.387 through 114 games.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Belts ninth homer

    Cronenworth went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday in a loss to the Dodgers. The Dodgers jumped out to a big early lead, so Cronenworth's solo shot in the seventh inning didn't make much of an impact on the outcome. Nonetheless, the long ball snapped a 25-game homerless drought for the utility man and marked the fourth time in his past six games that he's knocked in a run. Despite the lack of power, Cronenworth has been swinging a hot bat of late, putting together a nine-game hitting streak during which he's slashing .432/.462/.649 with five extra-base hits, four RBI, nine runs and two stolen bases.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Posts steal in loss

    Cronenworth went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Rangers. The steal was Cronenworth's career-best fifth of the season and his first since July 7. The infielder has continued to struggle at the plate this month, going 17-for-78 (.218) over 23 contests in July. For the season, he has a .210/.303/.355 slash line with eight home runs, 38 RBI, 43 runs scored, 17 doubles and six triples through 103 games.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Records fourth steal

    Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 7-5 extra-inning loss to the Mets. Cronenworth is 1-for-2 on the basepaths in July after just one steal (and attempt) in June. The infielder has hit safely in four of six games this month, going 7-for-19 (.368) with four extra-base hits and seven RBI. He's at a .218/.318/.365 slash line with four steals, eight home runs, 33 RBI and 36 runs scored through 86 contests, but he's showing some life at the plate.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Two doubles, homer in win

    Cronenworth went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run and three RBI during Tuesday's 8-5 win against the Angels. The 29-year-old found plenty of success versus Shohei Ohtani, including his eighth home run of the season. Cronenworth struggled to a .557 OPS in June, but he's gone 8-for-20 with three doubles, a home run, seven RBI and three runs over his past six games.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Knocks in three runs Monday

    Cronenworth went 2-for-3 with three RBI in a 10-3 win against the Angels on Monday. Cronenworth notched an RBI single in the fourth inning, a sacrifice fly in the sixth and another RBI single in the seventh. His three RBI were as many as he had tallied over his previous 18 contests combined. The infielder slashed just .214/.271/.286 over 26 games in June, but he's started July on a better foot, going 3-for-8 with four RBI through three contests.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Sitting Saturday

    Cronenworth will be on the bench for Saturday's game against Cincinnati, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cronenworth finds himself on the bench for the second time in five games after sitting just twice in the first 78 games of the season. His season is trending in the wrong direction, as he finished April with a respectable .728 OPS but recorded a .665 OPS in May and a .557 OPS in June. Brandon Dixon, who owns a .662 OPS on the season himself, will get the nod at first base.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Sitting Tuesday

    Cronenworth isn't in the Padres' lineup Tuesday versus Pittsburgh. Cronenworth is slashing just .188/.245/.229 over the past 14 days, so he'll get a rare day off Tuesday to regroup. Brandon Dixon will take Cronenworth's place at first base and bat eighth.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Out of lineup Thursday

    Cronenworth is absent from the lineup Thursday against the Guardians. Brandon Dixon will take a turn at first base and Ha-Seong Kim is at second. This appears to be a planned day of rest for Cronenworth, who's turned it on offensively over the last few weeks but holds a relatively underwhelming .216/.322/.377 overall slash line for the year.
