Angels purchased the contract of 1B C.J. Cron from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Cron was hitting .319/.369/.602 with 12 doubles, six home runs, and 26 RBI in 28 games this season for Salt Lake. He is batting fifth and serving as the Angels' designated hitter Saturday in his major league debut. The 24-year-old could push his way into a semi-regular role and is worth grabbing in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Finally called up, hopefully he can get enough bats

Can't help but think right now that he'd be getting the DH AB's vs LHP with Ibanez getting the AB's vs RHP. It's early May, so I don't think the Halos have pulled the plug on Ibanez just yet. With that said, I do think Cron supplants Ibanez eventually this season as the teams everyday DH(while getting starts at 1B when Pujols DH's...allowing him to maintain 1B eligibility in fantasy leagues)

C.J. Cron has a whole lot of upside. His shoulder is 100% this year and the power stroke is clearly there. 19 extra base hits in 28 games. Well under a strikeout a game. He could really take off this year. But like mentioned above his playing time will likely be a bit sporadic to start.
"Choosing between stats and scouting is like choosing between beer and tacos. In other words, its a choice nobody should have to make, since both are great and are perhaps even better when consumed together."
