Cron agrees to $4.8M, 1-year contract

The Minnesota Twins and first baseman C.J. Cron have agreed on a $4.8 million, one-year contract to avoid salary arbitration.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Twins claimed first baseman C.J. Cron on waivers from the Rays, who designed Cron for assignment even after a 30-homer season. Cron, who is expected to receive about $5 million in arbitration, hit .253/.323/.493 for a career-high .816 OPS. Twins first basemen hit .245/.326/.385 and their DHs hit .243/.321/.379, so Cron would be a power upgrade if he can match his 2018 numbers.
