Angels 1B C.J. Cron continues hot streak through weekend
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/5/15) Angels first baseman C.J. Cron enjoyed one of the best weekend series' of his baseball career.
Cron went 4 for 5 with a RBI and two runs on Sunday against the Rangers. The performance was just one day removed from a 3 for 4 outing on Saturday.
Over his last three games, Cron is hitting .571 with eight hits, a home run and eight RBI.
Angels' C.J. Cron homers, drives in six runs in blowout win Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/5/15) Angels slugger C.J. Cron enjoyed a career-night at the plate on Saturday. Cron, who was serving as the designated hitter, went 3 for 4 with a career-best six RBI and a run scored, leading the Angels to a 13-0 win over the Rangers.
Cron had an RBI single in the second inning and a sacrifice fly in the third. He continued his big night with a three-run home run, his third of the year in the sixth inning, followed by a run-scoring double in the eighth.
This was by far the best game of Cron's career, as his previous high was three RBI in a single game.

|(6/30/15) Angels first baseman C.J. Cron connected off CC Sabathia in the seventh inning for his second home run of the season during Monday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.
The solo shot was his only hit in three at-bats during the contest. Cron was recalled Monday. Prior to the game, Cron was hitting .150 with no extra-base hits in his last nine games.
Angels bring back 1B C.J. Cron
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) The Angels have called up first baseman C.J. Cron in time to face Yankees left-hander C.C. Sabathia on Monday.
Cron spent much of this season in the big leagues before going down on June 14 after a 3-for-20 slide. He finished his first stint with the Angels sporting a poor slash line of .204/.237/.269.
Angels recall Daniel Robertson; option C.J. Cron on Sunday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/14/15) The Angels recalled outfielder Daniel Robertson from the minor leagues Sunday, reports the Orange County Register.
Robertson can play all three outfield positions and he will replace designated hitter C.J. Cron, who was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday.
"C.J. didn't get as many looks as we hoped," manager Mike Scioscia said. "We didn't see many at-bats for him, especially playing two games in the National League this Wednesday and Thursday [in Arizona]."
|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 was looking even more grim this offseason following the acquisition of Matt Joyce, but now with Josh Hamilton's status up in the air, Cron at least has a chance to claim the regular DH job.
2015 outlook: Cron's 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 his exact role is in question, you can leave him for AL-only formats.
