2021 Fantasy Outlook
Viewed by many as a secondary piece in the Tommy Pham-Hunter Renfroe-Xavier Edwards trade, Cronenworth broke out in the short 2020 season to finish tied for second in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. His mid-teens K% from the upper levels of the minors was copied-and-pasted over his first 192 PA in the majors (15.6%), and Cronenworth showed good gap power with 15 doubles (t-12th in MLB). Statcast suggests more of those would clear the fences in a more neutral setting; keep in mind the Padres played in a lot of spacious parks out west with the geographical scheduling of 2020. There is room for growth in the SB department as well as Cronenworth showed 92nd percentile sprint speed. His playing time at second base is now in question after the team signed Ha-seong Kim. That being said, Cronenworth can move around if necessary, like he did in 2020, gaining three-position eligibility in many leagues (2B, SS, 1B). Read Past Outlooks

Cronenworth will sit Saturday against the Marlins.
ANALYSIS
Cronenworth will sit against lefty Braxton Garrett, though he's started against all but three southpaws the Padres faced prior to Saturday, so there's little reason to fear that he's about to slip into a platoon role. Ha-Seong Kim starts at second base in his absence.

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.
