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.

Angels | C.J. Cron to see everyday duty

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 13:55:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH C.J. Cron will likely be in the lineup on an everyday basis, according to manager Mike Scioscia. "The plan is to get C.J. in for a lot of at-bats," Scioscia said. "No doubt in the spring he was swinging the bat better than he was last year. I want to give him a chance to see if he can come out and contribute."

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could see time at first base to relieve Albert Pujols, or he could DH as long as Josh Hamilton is out. Cron had a hot-hitting spring and is a decent play at this low price.

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 13:05:02 -0700

Angels | C.J. Cron hitting well this spring

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:11:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF C.J. Cron, who is expected to see plenty of at-bats in 2015 as the designated hitter, went 2-for-3 with a double and a sacrifice fly to extend his spring hitting streak to seven games. Cron is hitting .396 (19-for-48) in Cactus League play.

Fantasy Tip: Cron should see plenty of at-bats as the DH or in left field with Josh Hamilton's (shoulder) situation up in the air. Cron isn't a household name, but he brings some intriguing power to the plate, and he is worth considering late in deep mixed leagues.

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 14:23:52 -0800

In mixed leagues, Cron is a late-round flier with power upside. He flashed potential last season slugging .548 and .552 in May and June, respectively.
