The November 21st, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Grichuk added to 40-man roster, Cron has breakout in AFL and much more...
The Monkey Says: This is really just housekeeping to prevent Grichuk from being stolen away via the Rule V draft. They only had to add one player this year because the upper levels of their minor league system are rather barren. That being said, I wouldn't be suprised to see Jeremy Berg, Ryan Chaffee or Matt Long get taken in the draft.
The Monkey Says: This might have been a mini-breakout for Cron as he didn't make the strides, from a statistical standpoint, in Double-A. If he can move to Triple-A and actually hit for power (which shouldn't be hard at Salt Lake) and improve his walk rate, it might prove the naysayers wrong.
