Angels placed 1B C.J. Cron on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand.

Cron was drilled by a pitch in the sixth inning of Friday's game against the Orioles. He had been on fire at the plate in recent days, hitting .364 with 17 RBI in his last eight games. Ji-Man Choi was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

C.J. Cron continued to destroy American League pitching Tuesday, homering twice and driving in four runs in the Angels' 13-5 drubbing of the Rays.

Cron made some history over the weekend with his six-hit, two-homer game, and despite being 1-for-9 since that game the 26-year-old reminded everyone just how he's been lately. Cron hit a solo dinger off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi in the second inning and tacked on a three-run shot in the ninth. Cron now has 11 homers on the year -- and five in his past five games -- and 46 RBI to go with a .284/.337/.484 line.

C.J. Cron had a night for the ages, finishing 6-for-6 with two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored in the Angels' 21-2 beatdown of the Red Sox on Saturday.

Cron entered the game hitting .268/.324/.429 and finished it hitting .287/.340/.473. In his last two games, the 26-year-old is 8-for-11 with three home runs, nine RBI and six runs scored. What else can we say about the historic night? It's one that surely won't be forgotten by Cron or Angels faithful.

C.J. Cron went 2-for-5 with a grand slam in Friday’s loss to the Red Sox.

His sixth-inning grand slam off Steven Wright was the only offense of the game for the Angels and brought them within one run before a lengthy rain delay. Cron had a chance to tie things up or potentially put the Angels ahead when he came up with two on and two outs in the ninth inning against Craig Kimbrel, but he grounded out to end the ballgame. The 26-year-old has three multi-hit games in his last four and is batting .268/.324/.429 with seven homers and 37 RBI on the yea

C.J. Cron hit his sixth home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

C.J. Cron went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI against the Twins on Wednesday.

Despite the extreme lack of power from the bottom half of the Angels order, Cron has had some difficulty finding playing time lately. This should help him out a bit, though the Angels clearly aren't as optimistic about him now as they were at the conclusion of last season.
Jun 16 - 1:38 AM

C.J. Cron is absent from the Angels' lineup Friday.

He's expected to only pinch-hit this weekend, as the Angels will use Albert Pujols at first base with the designated hitter spot not available in Pittsburgh. Cron is hitting just .250/.306/.390 with five homers this season.
Jun 3 - 1:56 PM

C.J. Cron swatted a pair of home runs -- including a two-run walk-off shot -- in Tuesday's 11-9 win over the Tigers.

Cron finished the game 2-for-4 with five RBI. He got his evening off to a nice enough start, hitting a two-run home run against Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez in the first inning. A sacrifice fly in the fourth accounted for his third RBI of the evening. And then, silence until the ninth, when the 26-year-old first baseman demolished a Mark Lowe offering for a no-doubter of a game-winner. Cron hasn't put together too many performances like this in 2016 and is slashing just .250/.307/.394 with five homers and 24 RBI over 160 at-bats.

C.J. Cron homered in the eighth and delivered a two-run single in the ninth to lead the Angels to a 7-6 win over the Mariners on Friday.

The Angels were down 5-1 after six before scoring two runs in each of the subsequent three innings. Cron's homer in the eighth came off Joel Peralta. In the ninth, he faced Steve Cishek with the bases loaded and swung at the first pitch, even though it was in on his hands. The resulting fly ball fell in between the shortstop, center field and left fielder, giving him a two-run single that gave the Angels the lead.
May 14 - 2:01 AM

C.J. Cron's second homer of the year was a two-run shot off the Cardinals' Jaime Garcia on Wednesday.

It gave the Angels their only runs of the game. Cron also walked. After a really slow start, he's gone 15-for-33 since April 26. As a result, he's once again a fixture in the Angels lineup.
May 12 - 1:35 AM

Hitting eighth against a left-hander, C.J. Cron went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's game.

Dropping Cron to the eighth spot against righties might not have been a bad idea for the Halos. Putting him there versus a lefty doesn't make as much sense, but it's a fluid situation anyway. He raised his average from .100 to .159 tonight.
Apr 19 - 12:14 AM

C.J. Cron has been dropped to eighth for Monday's game against the White Sox.

Cron has mostly batted fifth or sixth so far this season, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia is going to make a change for the time being. The 26-year-old is off to a rough 4-for-40 (.100) start.
