Angels bring back 1B C.J. Cron
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Angels have called up first baseman C.J. Cron in time to face Yankees left-hander C.C. Sabathia on Monday.

Cron spent much of this season in the big leagues before going down on June 14 after a 3-for-20 slide. He finished his first stint with the Angels sporting a poor slash line of .204/.237/.269.

Angels recall Daniel Robertson; option C.J. Cron on Sunday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Angels recalled outfielder Daniel Robertson from the minor leagues Sunday, reports the Orange County Register.

Robertson can play all three outfield positions and he will replace designated hitter C.J. Cron, who was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday.

"C.J. didn't get as many looks as we hoped," manager Mike Scioscia said. "We didn't see many at-bats for him, especially playing two games in the National League this Wednesday and Thursday [in Arizona]."

Angels bring back DH C.J. Cron
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Angels designated hitter C.J. Cron, who faltered in May after a decent beginning of the season as a starter, is back in the majors.

Cron was promoted Saturday from Triple-A Salt Lake City, where he batted .333 with two home runs. A 6-for-47 slide that lowered his average from .275 to .204 prompted his demotion.

It's expected that Cron will get a chance to improve against right-handed pitching this time around.

"The game plan for C.J. was to get a lot of at-bats this year, not just be strictly platoon," Manager Mike Scioscia said, per the Orange County Register. "If it works out where he’s swinging it well and he’s hitting right-handers too and he matches up well, he’ll get more at-bats. If you want to play more, play better. If C.J. plays well he’ll earn at-bats for sure."

Prior to his demotion, Cron recorded just nine hits in 61 at-bats against right-handers.

Angels send C.J. Cron to minors; plan to call up Grant Green
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Angels optioned designated hitter C.J. Cron to Triple-A on Monday, reports MLB.com. Cron is hitting .204 with one home run in 98 at-bats this season.

"I wasn't playing much," Cron said, per MLB.com. "Obviously when you're not playing, you're doing something wrong, and the opportunity is not there for you to just prove you belong. I knew in the recent stretch there was a chance [of getting optioned].

"When you're getting at-bats every once in a while, it's hard to get your timing right. That's what I'm going down for, to get better timing and to start swinging like I know I can."

The team plans to call up outfielder Grant Green, sources told MLB.com. Green is 2 for 6 in three games for the Angels this season.

Angels' deciding if C.J. Cron should sit bench or play in minors
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels DH C.J. Cron is mired in a slump to start the season. Cron is hitting .200 with a .496 OPS. 

As a result, Cron has seen his playing time dwindle, starting just twice in the last 10 games.

Of course, with limited at bats, it will be tough for Cron to find his swing. The question the Angels must answer is whether Cron should stay on the Major League bench or go down to Triple-A to get regular playing time. 

"If you are getting at bats at the major league level you don’t have to get them seven days a week, but if you are getting them one day a week then there’s a discussion of what’s best for the team and what’s best for the player," manager Mike Scioscia said, per the Orange County Register. "C.J. has gotten enough at-bats where if he’s swinging like he can, he’d be contributing, but he hasn’t found that swing yet."
