The Twins added some first baseman/DH depth by claiming C.J. Cron after he was designated for assistant by the Tampa Bay Rays last week.  The 28-year old Cron batted .253 with 30 home runs and 74 RBIs playing first base and designated hitter for the Rays in 2018.

The Twins have a need for depth at the position with Joe Mauer retiring and Logan Morrison is a free agent.  Tyler Austin and Miguel Sano have experience playing first base at the Major League level for the Twins as well.
