The Arizona Diamondbacks have had first baseman Kevin Cron on their major league roster at times during the 2019 regular season, but his power for the Triple-A Reno Aces has drawn attention.

Cron, 26, was named to the 2019 All-PCL (Pacific Coast League) team on Monday.

The 14th-round pick in 2014 has played 80 games for the Aces this year, registering 362 plate appearances and mashing 39 home runs and 103 RBIs with a .316 average and 1.224 OPS. Playing corner infield and designated hitter for the Aces this year, Cron finds himself as the first baseman on the honorary squad.

Cron has also played 27 games for the D-backs this season, getting 64 plate appearances and hitting five home runs with 15 RBIs and a .207 average. Despite spending time away from the Triple-A team, Cron leads the PCL in home runs.

The Aces’ season wraps up on Sept. 2.
