He seems to have left his bat in Arizona (0-for-2 yesterday in San Francisco to drop down to .174) but it's waiting for him in Coors.

I'm pretty sure the Tout Warriors will charge right past Peter's bid today. I know I would.

Cron's contract was selected by the Rockies on Saturday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Cron joined the Rockies on merely a minor-league deal this winter, but he always seemed likely to win the starting job at first base given the team's uninspiring alternatives. He needed to prove his health following August knee surgery, and he's done that this spring, hitting .324/.343/.618 through 12 games. Cron has averaged 27.4 homers per 600 plate appearances thus far in his career and could certainly surpass that mark this season with an everyday role in the league's most hitter-friendly park.

C.J. Cron (1B) COL - Mar. 09

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=764723

Cron went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, two doubles and two runs in Tuesday's spring win over the Diamondbacks.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Cron got off to a slow start this spring by going just 1-for-13 with one single and six strikeouts across five games, but he had his way against Arizona with three extra-base hits in Tuesday's blowout win. Although the 31-year-old is in camp as a non-roster invitee, he has a good chance to carve out regular at-bats during the regular season. Although Josh Fuentes has also impressed at the plate and on defense while competing for the job at first base, Fuentes has more defensive versatility, which could lead to more playing time for Cron.

Stock rising fast ... from $8 in CBS to $18 in Tout.

Cron vs Fuentes right? He's certainly interesting going to the Rockies. I haven't updated my hitters since he got signed so I'm not sure where I'd put him.

Does Cron feel like the kind of guy who could hit 30+ HR with a decent BA this year for a team?

He does to me.

The question then is tomorrow night how much will it take to find out.

Half of his hits last year did not help his BABIP. All but one were for extra bases.

Throw in more walks than hits and he gets an OPS+ of 139 while batting below the Mendoza Line.

Cron signed with Colorado as a non-roster invitee Monday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: There may be no better way for a fringy player to suddenly become fantasy-relevant than by taking up residence at Coors Field. Cron will have to prove his health in camp, as knee surgery limited him to just 13 games last season. If he does that, he has a good chance to carve out a significant role, with Josh Fuentes and Greg Bird currently lined up as his top competition at first base. Cron has looked like at least a low-end regular throughout most of his seven big-league seasons, hitting .257/.312/.464 (110 wRC+) overall.
