Daily Brews: Former Wolverine Jake Cronenworth named to MLB All-Star team

Michigan gets its first MLB All-Star in over a decade

MLB: San Diego Padres at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan baseball will be represented in the MLB All-Star Game later this month with the announcement that San Diego Padres’ second baseman Jake Cronenworth earned a spot on the NL squad.

Cronenworth debuted for the Padres last season and had a stellar first season, finishing second in the NL Rookie of the Year race. He’s avoided the sophomore slump so far, hitting .278/.353/.462 with 12 home runs, 58 runs, and 34 RBIs.

This is Michigan baseball’s first MLB All-Star since JJ Putz was selected in 2007 while serving as the closer for the Seattle Mariners.

Michigan’s 2022 football recruiting class moves into the top ten

With two commits in the last two days and seven since Victors Weekend last month, Michigan’s recruiting class has jumped into the top ten nationally. The additions of three-star TE Colson Loveland and four-star EDGE Mario Eugenio jumped Michigan over Rutgers, Texas A&M, and Boston College.

Michigan also moves into third place in the Big Ten, behind Ohio State and Penn State, who sit first and third in the country, respectively. It’s still very early in the rankings, with Alabama at 14, USC at 23, and Clemson at 24 all likely to rise. Right now, it looks like Michigan’s class will finish somewhere in the 8-15 range, which has become standard for the Harbaugh era.
