RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Cron saw his power numbers dip sharply after being promoted to Double-A Arkansas at the beginning of the 2013 season, as he slugged just .428 after slugging .516 with High-A Inland Empire in 2012. This, coupled with a remarkably low walk rate (4.1%), led to a pedestrian .746 OPS for the season. Cron makes enough contact (14.7% strikeout rate in 2013) that he may be able to offset his lack of plate discipline, but if he can't get his power numbers back to 2012 levels, he may struggle going forward. It should be noted, however, that the park effects at Arkansas suppress offense, specifically power. Cron hit well during his time in the Arizona Fall League, hitting .413 with five homers in 80 at-bats, and remains one of the best prospects in the Angels' system. He is expected to begin his 2014 season back in Arkansas, but he may quickly move to Triple-A Salt Lake and try to force his way into the picture in Anaheim with the departure of Mark Trumbo.

2013

Cron was the 17th overall pick in the 2011 draft and had an impressive showing at High-A Inland Empire last season after tearing up the rookie league the year before. He hit 27 homers and only struck out 72 times in 557 plate appearances for Inland Empire, but the Angels have to be concerned that he only managed to draw 17 walks all year. As promising of a talent as Cron is, he may stall out if he doesn't improve his plate discipline in the coming years. If he's able to do that, the sky is the limit for the 6-foot-4, 225-pound, 23-year-old slugger.

2012

The Angels selected Cron with the 17th pick in the 2011 draft. Though he didnít finish 2011 due to a knee injury, he posted a 1.000 OPS in 159 plate appearances in the rookie league. Cron should recover from his injury by the start of the season and open the season at Low-A Cedar Rapids in the Midwest League. While he is one of the Angelsí better prospects, the offseason signing of Albert Pujols blocks his long-term path. As a result, he could be most valuable to the team as a trade chip if his development takes place as expected.
