Angels | C.J. Cron out six to eight weeks

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 14:59:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron (hand) underwent surgery to repair a broken left hand Monday, July 11, and he will miss six to eight weeks, the organization announced Monday.

Fantasy Tip: This is a tough blow for Corn, as he was well on his way to a career season and sat with 11 home runs, 50 RBI and a .278/.333/.475 slash line. He likely is only worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. The timeline has him returning sometime in late August or early September which leaves limited time before the end of the season.

Angels | C.J. Cron placed on DL

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 08:24:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 9, because of a broken hand. The team also recalled 1B Ji-Man Choi from Class AAA Salt Lake.

Fantasy Tip: Cron will miss multiple weeks because of the injury, but owners should keep an eye out for a possible timetable for him. Owners should keep him on their roster if they can because he was playing well before the injury. Jefry Marte should see more playing time because of the injury and will have value in deeper mixed leagues. Choi likely will be a bench player and is an AL-only player at this point.

Angels | Yunel Escobar, C.J. Cron out

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:43:52 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (knee) and 1B C.J. Cron are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. SS Gregorio Petit is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh, while 3B Jefry Marte is at first base and is batting sixth against Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar continues to be bothered by a knee issue, so keep him out of all lineups until further notice. It looks like a normal rest day for Cron. Both Petit and Marte have limited offensive upside and should be considered low-end daily picks.
