Angels 1B C.J. Cron improving on hitting to opposite field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Angels first baseman C.J. Cron is having a very productive spring at the plate. Through 13 games, he is batting .364 (12 for 33) with two home runs, three doubles and five RBI.

Cron is having success this spring because he is able to hit to the opposite field.

“When he’s going right, that’s what you’re seeing him do more often,” manager Mike Scioscia said, per The Orange County Register. “He’s swinging it great.”

Cron had just five hits to right field, as opposed to 28 hits to left field last season. Cron said that’s not indicative of how he has swung throughout his minor-league career.

“It means you’re on time,” Cron said of hitting the ball to right field. “If you take that pitch outside and drive it to the other field, it’s better than rolling over (and pulling the ball weakly). I’m feeling comfortable. I’m seeing the ball good right now.”

The Angels are also looking for Cron to be more selective at the plate after he had just a .289 on-base percentage as a rookie in 2014.

“I think with experience you’ll see a player understand more and more what he can do and what pitches he’s putting better swings on,” Scioscia said. “That plate discipline doesn’t always lead to walks. It can lead to getting better pitches to hit. I think you are going to see him refine his selection of pitches more and more as his career goes on. I don’t know if all of it is showing up right now, but it will.”

Angels first baseman C.J. Cron has minor surgery on wrist
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Angels first basement C.J. Cron underwent a minor procedure on his wrist, manager Mike Scioscia said, via MLB.com.

Cron had a cyst in his wrist that needed to be removed. The procedure shouldn't affect Cron's availability in spring training.

In 2014, Cron hit .256 with 11 home runs.

Hamilton injury could free up at-bats for Angels' Joyce, Cowgill, Cron
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton doubtful for the start of the season due to shoulder surgery, his absence could open the door for more playing time in the outfield for Matt Joyce and Collin Cowgill. It could also mean more at-bats for C.J. Cron at DH, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We don't envision this being a long-term issue, but 6-8 weeks is not a short-term thing,” general manager Jerry Dipoto said of Hamilton's injury. “We'll have a better idea when he gets back on the field doing baseball things.”
