Angels first baseman C.J. Cron has minor surgery on wrist
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Angels first basement C.J. Cron underwent a minor procedure on his wrist, manager Mike Scioscia said, via MLB.com.
Cron had a cyst in his wrist that needed to be removed. The procedure shouldn't affect Cron's availability in spring training.
In 2014, Cron hit .256 with 11 home runs.
Hamilton injury could free up at-bats for Angels' Joyce, Cowgill, Cron
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/4/15) With Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton doubtful for the start of the season due to shoulder surgery, his absence could open the door for more playing time in the outfield for Matt Joyce and Collin Cowgill. It could also mean more at-bats for C.J. Cron at DH, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“We don't envision this being a long-term issue, but 6-8 weeks is not a short-term thing,” general manager Jerry Dipoto said of Hamilton's injury. “We'll have a better idea when he gets back on the field doing baseball things.”
C.J. Cron to DH in Game 1 of ALDS
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/1/14) Angels first baseman C.J. Cron will serve as the designated hitter in Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Royals Thursday, MLB.com reports.
After a sold start to his season in May and June, Cron has slowed down considerably in the second half, hitting just .209/.261/.395 with two home runs in 43 at-bats in September. He wrapped up his first major-league season with a .256/.289/.450 line along with 11 home runs and 37 RBI in 242 at-bats.
C.J. Cron swats 11th home run Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) Angels first baseman C.J. Cron went 2 for 3 with a three-run home run in his team's 5-0 win over the Mariners Wednesday.
Cron's home run came at an opportune time, as the Mariners turned to the bullpen in the seventh inning only for the Angels first baseman to immediately smack a three-run blast to put the lead out of reach. He has hit .273/.301/.482 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI in 220 at-bats.
C.J. Cron returns to starting lineup Friday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) Angels designated hitter C.J. Cron made his return to the starting lineup Friday night against Houston. Cron was not in the lineup since Monday because of a forearm injury, though he did make a appearance Thursday as a defensive substitute. He has five hits over his first 11 at-bats since being called up in September.
|2014 summary: The Angels made the surprising decision to promote C.J. Cron in early May, after he had gotten only about 100 at-bats at Triple-A, and then made the even more surprising decision not to play him regularly even after he homered eight times in his first 123 at-bats. The inconsistent playing time and eventual return to the minors, if only briefly, prevented him from making a significant Fantasy impact and was perhaps partially responsible for him batting .210 over his final 119 at-bats.|
Playing time status: The most confusing part about the way the Angels used Cron is that they weren't replacing him with anyone good. Sure, Josh Hamilton needed the occasional start at DH, but what did Raul Ibanez, Brennan Boesch and Efren Navarro do to earn Mike Scioscia's favor? The situation looks even more grim this year following the acquisition of Matt Joyce, who actually does make a positive contribution at the plate.
2015 outlook: Still, Fantasy owners would prefer to see Cron with the starting DH job. His combination of big power and poor plate discipline earns him comparisons to Mark Trumbo, but he makes enough contact that he may not be a total loss in batting average. Particularly in Rotisserie leagues, where walks don't count for anything and home runs are in short supply, he'd be a legitimate sleeper with regular at-bats, but because he's likely in for a part-time role again, you can leave him for AL-only formats.
