Cron’s ultimate goal is to gain a promotion to AAA, which for the Angels would mean he would head back to a place he knows well in Salt Lake City. “It’s awesome [to come from Utah],” he said. “I loved that school. I loved Salt Lake City, loved the school and to be a first-round pick out of there and the first one is special. I hope to have a lot more coming.”

But he realizes that who gets promoted and when are decisions that are often out of the player’s hands. That’s why he is going to do all he can to ensure that happens before the end of 2013.

“I’ve got to keep getting better and better every day. Nothing’s easy and I want to make the decision on them as tough as possible, so I’ve got to keep playing hard and keep doing my best to help the team win,” Cron said.
