Angels | C.J. Cron in lineup

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 14:37:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron will serve as the designated hitter Saturday, June 6, against the New York Yankees and SP Adam Warren. OF Matt Joyce will move to left field, while OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will move to the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Cron isn't yet available on FantasyScore, but he'll be looking to make a more impressive impact during his second stint in the majors this season. Cron did have 11 home runs in 253 plate appearances last season, and he has 20-homer potential if he could ever secure a high enough batting average to stick in the major leagues.

Angels | Kirk Nieuwenhuis draws into lineup

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a weak offensive weapon and should be avoided on FantasyScore this evening against one of the best pitchers in the American League this year. Paying up for Trout ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could also prove to be foolish, too.
