Latest Update C.J. Cron went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Angels victory over the Mariners on Wednesday. Thu Sep, 18, 02:33 AM
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.
Cron only has 11 home runs on the season, but he could be a fantasy sleeper if he ever ever receives consistent playing time.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Cron has made the most of his opportunity to contribute in the Angels offense over his last two games, going 4-for-7 with two extra-base hits, three RBI and two runs scored in that stretch. However, his increased playing time may be limited, so there is a chance it will be short-lived so don't look too far into his recent production. Analyst: Matthew Beck
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
