Hitting .212/.266/.297 at AAA Salt Lake isn’t going to get many players to the Big Leagues. But C.J. Cron has enough experience in the Majors so far to be given another chance. But how many chances will he be given?
With Luis Valbuena struggling to hit his weight, and Albert Pujols having a down year (by his Angels career standards), the club had no choice but to bring Cron up again. Hopefully he can bring more offense at first base.
The other reason for this move is that the Halos optioned Parker Bridwell back to AAA, as they won’t need him until right after the All-Star Break.
Bridwell, who the Angels acquired from the Orioles for nothing, has a 3.24 ERA in 33.1 major league innings.
