Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 4 April 2012 at 11:30 pm

The Angels have placed 25-year old righty reliever Michael Kohn on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th due to a right forearm strain. Kohn pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Angels last year and he was 0-1 with 1 save, a 7.30 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP. Kohn has now pitched in 38 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Angels and he is 2-1 with 2 saves, a 4.01 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. The Angels hope that Kohn heals up soon, as they were likely going to give him his big chance in 2012.

UPDATE: (4/11/2012) – Michael Kohn needs Tommy John Surgery and he will miss the entire 2012 season. This is a very bad break for him.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 17 August 2011 at 5:49 pm

21-year old righty swinging 1B/DH C.J. Cron was the #17 overall pick in the first round of the 2011 Amateur Draft last June. He decided to get right to work despite having a tear in his right shoulder that will need surgery at the end of the year. Cron played in 34 games in Rookie ball this year and he was 44 for 143 (.308 avg, 1.000 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 13 homers and 41 RBIs. He was DHing this year to protect his shoulder, but he will miss the rest of this season due to surgery on his right knee to repair ligament damage after he dislocated the knee over the weekend. Cron has a huge upside for the Angels and he should be ready to go next spring.
