Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Knocks in three runs Tuesday

Cronenworth went 2-for-5 with a triple, a run and three RBI in a 9-6 win over Cincinnati on Tuesday. Cronenworth came up with a bases-clearing triple in the fourth inning that appeared to put the game out of reach, though it ultimately proved to be the difference as the Reds stormed back from a 9-1 deficit but fell three runs short. Cronenworth recently went through a seven-game 0-for-23 stretch but has perked up over his past three contests, going 5-for-12 with a homer and four RBI over that stretch.

Jake Cronenworth is off to a slow start for the Padres this year. A closer look at several advanced statistics reveals he’s close to breaking out.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Connects on first homer

Cronenworth went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 3-2 victory against the Dodgers on Saturday. Cronenworth singled in the first inning and tacked on a solo shot in the third to extend San Diego's lead to 2-0 and break out of a major slump. Prior to Saturday's game, the 28-year-old had gone hitless across his previous seven games, a streak that spanned 23 at-bats and saw his average fall from .296 to .160. He's still reaching base at a solid .343 clip thanks to 11 walks compared to 10 hits, but his .189 average and .302 slugging stand to experience some positive regression with career marks of .265 and .453.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Reaches base three times

Cronenworth went 0-for-1 with three walks and a run scored Wednesday against the Reds. Cronenworth managed to reach base multiple times for the first time in six starts, and he's now hitless across his last 19 at-bats. Given that, it's little surprise that he's hitting just .174, though he has managed to maintain a .339 on-base percentage. Importantly, Cronenworth has struck out at an acceptable 18.6 percent clip and currently has just a .222 BABIP across 59 plate appearances. If he continues to make contact, Cronenworth should see improved results as the season wears on.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Slowed by groin issue

Cronenworth has been dealing with a groin muscle issue in camp and has yet to join the Padres' full-squad workouts, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Blasts 21st homer

Cronenworth went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and a strikeout in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday. Cronenworth brought a dormant Padres offense to within one run with his ninth-inning home run off Blake Treinen but the blow proved to be too little too late. The infielder has been serviceable for much of September with a .259/.333/.466 line that's seen a recent boost with a combined 4-for-7 featuring two doubles, a triple, a home run and two walks over Cronenworth's last two games.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Three XBH in losing effort

Cronenworth went 3-for-4 with a triple, two doubles, a walk, two RBI and a run Sunday in San Diego's 4-3 loss to Atlanta. The Padres' No. 2 and 3 hitters -- Cronenworth and Manny Machado -- combined to reach base eight times Sunday, but the other seven hitters in the lineup did little to move the needle for a San Diego squad that dropped to .500 with its eighth loss in nine games. Though he came through with an excellent day at the dish, Cronenworth had a hand in the team's recent struggles. In his nine games prior to Sunday, he went 4-for-28 while drawing only one walk.

Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Sitting Saturday

Cronenworth will sit Saturday against Atlanta. Cronenworth started six straight games after returning from a finger injury but grabbed just four hits. Fernando Tatis remains the primary shortstop, but Cronenworth should still slot in somewhere on the infield in most games while someone else gets a rest.

Jake Cronenworth will be back in the starting lineup Saturday for the Padres

Jake Cronenworth will return to the Padres starting lineup on Saturday, BaseballPress.com reports. Cronenworth returned as a pinch-hitter Friday after missing six straight games due to a finger injury. That injury was due to being hit by a pitch on Sept 10 versus the Dodgers. Cronenworth had two at-bats Friday, and while he didn’t record a hit, he did have an RBI thanks to a sacrifice fly. However, those two at-bats were enough to prove to the team that he was ready to return to the lineup.

Cronenworth (finger) is starting at first base and hitting second Saturday against the Cardinals. Cronenworth was held out of the starting lineup for the last week, though he did make an appearance as a pinch hitter Friday. Now back in the lineup, Cronenworth may find a regular home at first base, as it appears that the Padres are contemplating keeping Fernando Tatis at shortstop.
