Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is hitting cleanup Thursday, Aug. 27, against left-handed Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf.

Angels | Albert Pujols resting up

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 16:32:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. 1B C.J. Cron is starting at first base and hitting fifth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: If you're looking for a player not many others will click on FantasyScore tonight, Cron ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) might be your guy. Samardzija has surrendered 22 earned runs and five long balls in three starts over just 15 1/3 innings in August, so Cron looks tasty as a value pick tonight.

Angels | Conor Gillaspie to remain at 3B

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 16:33:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Conor Gillaspie will continue to be the starting third baseman with 3B David Freese (finger) on the disabled list. He's hitting just .186 in 12 games with the Angels, but he has contributed some key hits early on in his time with the team. However, it will be tough for the Angels to find room on the roster to keep Gillaspie when Freese returns in the near future. The Angels are working Gillaspie at first base, so he could take 1B C.J. Cron's roster spot until rosters expand in September.

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie's ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) short-term value, mainly in AL-only leagues, is nearing its end. If you've been using him in those cavernous leagues, be prepared to move on. On FantasyScore, he remains a low-end daily commodity without much offensive upside.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is batting .359 since July 1, with five home runs and 16 RBIs in 78 at-bats. He makes a solid play in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Angels | C.J. Cron draws a start at 1B

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 11:49:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Wednesday, Aug. 5, with 1B Albert Pujols serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Cron's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) playing time took a big hit with the trade acquisitions of Shane Victorino, David Murphy and David DeJesus last week, so he should only be owned in the deepest of AL-only leagues. On FantasyScore today, he makes for a weak option against the dominant Salazar, who is fanning a whopping 10.3 hitters per nine innings. Cron has 32 strikeouts in 128 at-bats against righties this year.

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.
