The Los Angeles Angels have placed 26-year old righty swinging 1B C.J. Cron on the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured left hand.  He was hit by a pitch last night.  Cron has played in 77 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 73 of 259 (.278 avg, .808 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 11 homers, 50 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Cron is currently #3 in both homers and RBIs on the Angels so far this year.  25-year old lefty swinging 1B Ji-Man Choi has been called up to replace Cron on the active roster.  Choi played in 14 games for the Angels earlier this year and he is 1 for 18 (.056 avg, .347 OPS).  Losing Cron is a huge blow to the Angels, as he has really been hitting well lately.

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 33-year old righty swinging catcher Geovany Soto on the 15-day disabled list due to a torn meniscus in his right knee.  He will miss the next 4-6 weeks for the Angels.  This is a bad break for both Soto and the Angels.  Soto has played in 20 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 17 for 60 (.283 avg, .822 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 3 homers and 7 RBIs.  He was starting to take playing time away from 25-year old righty swinging Carlos Perez.  Perez has played in 24 games for the Angels so far this year and he is only 13 of 74 (.176 avg, .467 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  The Angels have called up 26-year old righty swinging catcher Jett Bandy to replace Soto on the roster.  Bandy came into this season as the Angels’ #27 prospect according to Baseball America.  Bandy has played in 24 games in AAA-ball this year for the Angels and he is 26 of 95 (.274 avg, .725 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 21 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Bandy has now played in 426 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 390 of 1,470 (.265 avg, .759 OPS) with 201 runs scored, 42 homers, 227 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.  Bandy played in 2 games for the Angels last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 1 for 2 (.500 avg, 2.500 OPS) with 1 run scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI.  Bandy could take P.T. away from Perez, as he is a legit prospect.
