Latest Update Cron has been optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake Sun Aug, 10, 01:47 PM
Has monster home-run power and great hands (which he uses in plate coverage effectively). Is also a huge target (6-4, 235 pounds) at first base.
Flaws: : Doesn't draw enough walks to maximize his tremendous power, and also lacks plate discipline. Also, he is a bit defensively challenged.
The Angels are in need of relief arms after the 19-inning marathon Saturday night in which they used 9 different pitchers. He'll be back in the next few days once the Halos' bullpen gets some rest. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Cron was sent down to make room for more relievers for manager Mike Scioscia, but with Grant Green hitting the DL with a back issue, he's headed back to Anaheim and will hopefully find his way back into the lineup regularly. He was slashing .278/.307/.497 with nine home runs and 27 RBI before being sent down.Analyst: Howard Bender
After a hot streak in which he hit five HR in six games, he has cooled off dramatically, batting just .205 with one HR in July. This is likely not the last time that he'll be in the majors, but Cron will have to get back on track before being considered for a call up. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Cron now has five home runs in his last six games bringing his season total to eight over just 123 at-bats, good for a 6.5 home run percentage which is inside the top five in the major leagues (min. 40 games).Analyst: Michael Pichan
