Trent Grisham’s “Jake the Rake” BreakingT T-Shirt

In December of 2019, the San Diego Padres and Tampa Bay Rays finalized a trade that would result in Jake Cronenworth and Tommy Pham going to the former and Xavier Edwards, Estaban Quiroz, and Hunter Renfroe being shipped off to the latter. Although he was not considered the kingpin of the Padres’ receivings at the time, Jake Cronenworth would quickly become a significant piece in the team’s 2020 postseason run that would eventually see them get swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers in their NLDS. Cronenworth and Philadelphia Phillies’ Alec Bolm would ultimately finish in a tie for second place in NL ROY voting, only to Milwaukee Brewers’ Devin Williams.

In August of 2020, Cronenworth had a Barrel% and Sweet Spot% of 10.6% and 51.1%, respectively. The rest of the league was sitting at 6.3% and 32.7%, respectively, during that time. His patience at the plate, K% of 14.5%, and Whiff% in the 82nd percentile were also impressive. Although not limited to the previously stated, these were some of the statistics that definitely served as inspiration for his nickname, “Jake the Rake”.

You can learn more about Cronenworth’s roots on the San Diego Union-Tribune, and you can get the “Jake the Rake” BreakingT t-shirt that teammates of Cronenworth, such as Trent Grisham, have worn on BreakingT from $28.00 to $29.00, depending on the size.
