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."

Angels' C.J. Cron not in lineup Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels designated hitter C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

Cron has seen action in each of his team's previous matchups with lefties, but he'll take a seat Saturday despite lefty Dallas Keuchel's presence on the mound for the Astros. David Freese will server as the designated hitter, with Taylor Featherston sliding into the lineup at third base.

The Angels are slight favorites (-106) against the Astros, per VegasInsider.com.

Angels' Scioscia on C.J. Cron: 'We need him'
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels DH C.J. Cron is mired in a 2-for-26 slump. Manager Mike Scioscia benched him for one game on Thursday as he tries to help Cron make his way out of the cold spell.

"We’ve really tried to get him enough playing time to find his swing, but also giving him time to work on some stuff, mixing some guys in and out of the lineup," said Scioscia, per the Orange County Register. "We need him. We need his bat. We need his power. Hopefully he’ll start to get comfortable in the batters box and start being productive."
