C.J. Cron provided a bright spot in the Angels' 11-3 loss to the Astros on Friday, launching a home run and driving in one run while going 1-for-3 at the plate.
With this performance, Cron now has 12 home runs and 37 RBI on the season in 67 games played. Although his season batting average sits at .251, his power numbers have been solid, making him a valuable asset in deeper fantasy leagues.
C.J. Cron is out of the lineup for the Los Angeles Angels against the Seattle Mariners Sunday.
Cron will receive the afternoon off for general rest reasons, with Mike Moustakas starting at first base and batting cleanup for manager Phil Nevin against the Mariners Sunday.
C.J. Cron will make his debut in the starting lineup for the Los Angeles Angels against the Atlanta Braves Monday.
Cron will see the field immediately after being acquired from the Colorado Rockies Sunday, starting at first base and batting third against the Braves for manager Phil Nevin.
The Colorado Rockies have traded C.J. Cron to the Los Angeles Angels.
The Angels also acquired Randal Grichuk from Colorado and sent Jake Madden and Mason Albright to the Rockies. The Angels continue to make a late push for the playoffs this season as they hope to re-sign Shohei Ohtani this offseason.
C.J. Cron (back) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday vs the Nationals and will likely be out Wednesday as well.
Cron has been battling lower-back stiffness but will take batting practice prior to Tuesday's game. It is also likely that he will be out Wednesday and hopes to return Friday after a team off-day on Thursday. Cron could be a trade candidate with the deadline approaching, so it makes sense for the Rockies to proceed with caution.
