C.J. Cron didn’t get a lot of playing time in 2017 and with Pujols moving to first base more (thanks to the Ohtani signing), and Zach Cozart coming in to play third, maybe wondered what would become of Cron with Luis Valbuena also on the roster. One of the questions many of us asked around here was - what value does Cron have? Now we know...
The #Angels have traded CJ Cron to Rays for a player to be named.— Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) February 18, 2018
C.J. Cron was traded for a player to be named later or cash which is just a very small step above getting nothing for him.
Once a top prospect, Cron was streaky at the Big League level. The writing seemed to be on the wall - and now we know - more more C.J. Cron.
On their end, the Tampa Bay Rays designated Corey Dickerson to make room for Cron. Which means in the Rays’ minds, Cron > Dickerson.
So long Cronster - and thanks for the memories!!
