C.J. Cron (hand) is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Saturday's game.

Cron broke his left hand almost six weeks ago, but has spent the last week on a minor league rehab assignment, going 3-for-20 (.150) with one extra-base hit. Before landing on the shelf, Cron was hitting .278/.333/.475 with 11 homers and 50 RBI in only 77 games. His powerful bat has been sorely missed in the middle of the Angels lineup.

C.J. Cron (hand) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

C.J. Cron (hand) is aiming to begin a rehab assignment by the end of this week.

C.J. Cron (hand) has received medical clearance to resume hitting.

Cron is absolutely obliterating his initial 6-8 timetable. He broke his left hand after being hit by a pitch in mid-July, but has made rapid progress in his recovery. Manager Mike Scioscia went so far as to call his recovery "amazing" last week. Barring a setback, he is trending toward a return in the middle of August.

C.J. Cron (hand) could begin swinging on Tuesday.

The Angels are hoping to have him back in about two weeks, which means he's way ahead of schedule. "Yeah, I know, it's amazing," said manager Mike Scioscia. Cron was originally expected to miss 6-8 weeks after breaking his hand right before the All-Star break but it looks like he'll only miss about four. Jefrey Marte has been filling in for him at first base.

C.J. Cron is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a broken left hand.

Cron was hit by a pitch on Friday and will undergo surgery on Tuesday. It's too bad, as the 26-year-old has been on a tear at the plate recently. He's now looking at a return in September. Ji-Man Choi should see regular at-bats during his absence.

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.
Jul 5 - 10:53 PM

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

Jun 19 - 1:23 PM

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.
