|C.J. Cron not worried about lack of HRs |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) Angels first base prospect C.J. Cron fell a triple shy of the cycle Saturday for Double-A Arkansas. Cron, who belted a career-high 27 home runs in 2012, homered for just the second time, but he's batting .350 (14 for 40) in his last 10 games.
"They usually come for me, so homers are never really anything I worry about," Cron said, per MLB.com. "I'm just sticking with the same approach that's worked with everything else. Obviously, I'd like to have more than just two, but they'll come."
Cron, who is considered the Angels' third-best prospect by MLB.com, is batting .315 with a .460 slugging percentage in 32 games. He has one triple, four stolen bases, 10 doubles, 11 runs and 18 RBI.
|Cron won't be rushed by Angels |

(2/9/13) The Angels are a pretty deep team this season with lots of young talent and that will allow some of the club's top prospects to be brought along more slowly, reports MLB.com Saturday. First baseman C.J. Cron, who is coming back from surgery on a torn labrum in his right shoulder, can take his time this season. "There's no rush on Cron, really any of these guys," said assistant general manager Scott Servais.
