Angels' C.J. Cron: Healthy entering camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cron, who underwent surgery on his thumb last October, is fully recovered and won't face any limitations in camp, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

This isn't a huge surprise, as he was never expected to miss any spring-training time after surgery, but it's still good news for Cron, who will reportedly be competing with Luis Valbuena for playing time this season. The 27-year-old is coming off a career-high .278 average as well as 16 homers in an injury-shortened 2016 campaign.

Angels' C.J. Cron: In ongoing competition for playing time?
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cron (thumb) is expected to begin a season-long competition for playing time with Luis Valbuena as spring training begins, the Orange County Register reports.

There are a few variables in play, including the health of Albert Pujols, Cron's health following October thumb surgery, and the Angels' defensive plans around the infield with the addition of Danny Espinosa via trade this winter. Nevertheless, Cron has 20-25 homer pop if he finds a way into the lineup on a daily basis, while the improvement he showed in his strikeout rate last season (dropped from 20.3 percent to 16.9 percent) bodes well for his chances of sustaining his 16-point increase in batting average to last season's .278 mark.

Angels' C.J. Cron: Undergoes thumb surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron underwent an arthroscopic procedure to address a left thumb impingement Tuesday.

Cron was apparently experiencing some pain at the base of his thumb, although it's unclear how and when the injury presented itself. The first baseman is expected to be cleared for full activity in 6-to-8 weeks, which should keep him from missing any time during spring training.
