According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Angels' decision to sign Luis Valbuena had more to do with the uncertainty surrounding Albert Pujols' health than a desire to shop C.J. Cron.
Some have suggested that Cron could be a goner now that Valbuena is on board but apparently that isn't the case. Pujols is coming off foot surgery and may not be ready for Opening Day. In that scenario, Valbuena would likely handle first base with Cron filling in at DH. If the Angels let Yunel Escobar walk in free agency next offseason, Valbuena could move to third base full time in 2018. Jan 21 - 8:22 PM
