C.J. Cron, Twins

The 29-year-old Cron nearly doubled his previous career-high of 16 home runs with 30 last year for the Rays. He also batted a respectable .253 with a solid .816 OPS (career-high). He actually was a designated hitter more often last year as his fielding grades as below-average according to metrics, but Nelson Cruz is likely to be Minnesota's full-time designated hitter this year.
