Angels | Albert Pujols resting vs. Tribe

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:14:51 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols is not in the starting lineup against the Cleveland Indians Monday, Aug. 3. 1B C.J. Cron is starting at first base and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) hasn't had a day off in awhile and played first base the past three games. Be ready to return him to your seasonal lineups Tuesday, Aug. 4. Cron ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) would typically be a solid play, but it is a horrible matchup Monday, so FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere.

Angels | C.J. Cron to DH against lefties

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 17:41:28 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim plan to use 1B C.J. Cron as their regular designated hitter against left-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, July 29, Cron ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was batting .322 against southpaws, as opposed to .229 against righties. He is also hitting .371 overall during the month of July, making him worthy of FantasyScore consideration whenever a lefty is on the mound for the opposition.

Angels | C.J. Cron bumped up

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 10:02:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is hitting sixth Thursday, July 23, against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) moves up a spot in the order to replace David Freese (finger). Cron has been on fire with a .477-3-11 line in 44 July at-bats. He's a good start with upside today.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting vs. Twins

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:12:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Trout ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is serving as the designated hitter, which pushes Cron ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) out of the lineup. Over his last 16 games, Cron has a .444/.466/.741 slash line with 10 runs, four doubles, four home runs and 12 RBI. He is worth a look in the majority of seasonal leagues and a strong FantasyScore option while hitting well.

Angels | Matt Joyce returns to lineup

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 18:02:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce re-enters the lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox Monday, July 20. Joyce will start in left field and hit sixth in the lineup against RHP Steven Wright. 1B C.J. Cron comes out of the lineup in the corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has hit all five of his home runs for the season against right-handed pitching. While it's difficult to trust the .201 batting average, Joyce does have enough power upside to be considered for use in GPP tournaments.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has five multi-hit games during the streak, raising his average from .198 to .269. He also has 11 RBI and six runs scored over the same stretch. He is an absolute steal at FantasyScore right now.

Angels | C.J. Cron stays hot

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 05:38:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron went 2-for-4 with two runs, two home runs and three RBI during the Angels' 7-3 win over the Seattle Mariners Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is riding a five-game hit streak with six runs, two doubles, three home runs, 11 RBI and a 1.660 OPS. It is a small sample size, but Cron has the pedigree, and he burst out of the gate with a bang last season and hit nine bombs and drove in 27 runs over a stretch of 156 plate appearances, so the upside is there. Cron is worth a flier in all deep formats, and keep him in mind when chasing cap relief at FantasyScore.

Angels | C.J. Cron the DH Thursday

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 16:36:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting only .238 (31-for-130) this year with three home runs and 15 RBI. He's definitely one to avoid against the dominant Hernandez this evening.

Fantasy Tip: Cron was hitting .198 after Saturday's game, so that tells you how absent his bat has been this season. Leave his bat on the bench.
