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.

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.

Angels | Albert Pujols sitting out Thursday

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:55:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 30. DH C.J. Cron is starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols' ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) doesn't seem to be too serious, but it may be at least a few more days before he's able to get back into the lineup. Pujols has been slow out of the gates this year, but a low BABIP has been the main culprit. He has time to bounce back, but you'll want to avoid him at FantasyScore for at least a while.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting out vs. Oakland

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:35:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has been struggling mightily to start the season, but he had a two-hit, two-run showing Tuesday, April 21. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Wednesday. It is likely best to wait for him to string together a few solid games at the plate before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests, too.

Angels | Matt Joyce, C.J. Cron struggling

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 09:01:33 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce and DH C.J. Cron are hitting .167 and .129, respectively, to begin the 2015 season in the absence of OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder). The two have combined for one home run and seven RBI.

Fantasy Tip: It'd be wise to avoid Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Cron ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) at FantasyScore for the time being. Joyce should only be started in daily lineups when he's facing a right-handed pitcher.

Angels | Matt Joyce has sore foot

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:07:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce (foot) is serving as the designated hitter Friday, April 17, after fouling a ball off his foot Wednesday, April 15. DH C.J. Cron is on the bench Friday as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce's ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) foot shouldn't keep you from considering him at FantasyScore tonight in a juicy matchup as the cleanup hitter against Houston Astros starter Roberto Hernandez.

Angels | Matt Joyce hitting cleanup

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:08:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is serving as the designated hitter and is in the cleanup spot against Houston Astros SP Roberto Hernandez Friday, April 17, with DH C.J. Cron once again on the bench. OF Efren Navarro is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) becomes much more attractive hitting in the heart of the Halos lineup against a weak starter in Hernandez. It doesn't hurt to consider the veteran lefty swinger as a sleeper pick at FantasyScore in the outfield.
