Angels | C.J. Cron with another start

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:49:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) homered in his first game after being called up Monday night. He has plenty of pop, but he's had just 23 hits in 111 at-bats (.207) this season. Cron is a weak FantasyScore option Tuesday evening.

Angels | Matt Joyce will not start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:35:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Monday, June 29. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while 1B C.J. Cron will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Cron recently rejoined the team but probably is not a great option for fantasy owners at this point.

Angels | C.J. Cron draws in as DH

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:41:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is batting seventh as the designated hitter against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) sports a sub-.200 batting average this season and has just six hits over his last 53 at-bats. The 2011 first-round pick is struggling mightily, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players. At this point, Cron should be avoided given how important production from first base is in daily baseball.

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 | C.J. Cron sent down

Tue, 26 May 2015 09:47:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron was optioned to Class AAA Salt Lake Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cron was hitting only .204 (20-for-98) with one home run and six RBI on the year and had only been hitting against left-handed pitchers. His demotion means Marc Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should continue to serve as the main designated hitter. He's only relevant in deep AL-only leagues, and he's a weak FantasyScore option for his power stroke.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting against righties

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:12:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron has a slash line of .200/.222/.274 and hasn't been starting against right-handers, including Friday, May 22. OF Marc Krauss is serving as the designated hitter and hitting eighth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) isn't usable at FantasyScore until he turns things around against righties. Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) hit his first homer last night, but he remains a deep sleeper at FantasyScore, especially against Porcello, who has limited lefty sticks to a .248/.299/.450 slash line in 2015.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting out against Rockies

Wed, 13 May 2015 15:21:55 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH/1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, May 13. OF/1B Marc Krauss is batting ninth as the designated hitter Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is batting .193 this season with just a single home run and six RBI through 87 plate appearances. Outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, seasonal owners should aim higher. Krauss is nothing more than a flier for daily contests Wednesday. He profiles as a feast or famine slugger at the majors with 10 home runs over 357 career plate appearances and a .198 batting average and a .609 OPS.

Angels | C.J. Cron not playing Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:01:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. OF Marc Krauss is starting at first base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a good matchup against the struggling Kendrick, but his lineup position hurts his chances of coming through for you as a low-priced deep sleeper pick.

Angels | C.J. Cron out vs. Houston

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:50:58 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 7. OF Efren Navarro is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is batting .235 (4-for-17) in limited duty off the Angels bench. Avoid him everywhere in daily games.

Angels | Albert Pujols remains out Friday

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:46:01 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup again Friday, May 1. DH C.J. Cron is starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is day-to-day and is hoping to return to the lineup sometime this weekend. His absence continues the shakeup at the top of the lineup. Erick Aybar ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), Johnny Giavotella ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) continue to gain daily value while hitting at the top of the lineup, and Kole Calhoun ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is also more appealing hitting in the cleanup spot.
