C.J. Cron drafted 17th by the Angels

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have drafted Utah first baseman C.J. Cron. 

Cron led the Utes to a 29-21 record and second place finish in the Mountain West Conference - even though they were picked sixth out of seventh prior to the season beginning. 

It was the most successful regular season for Utah baseball since the MWC formed in 1999 and Cron certainly became an electrifying and most talked about player in program history.

Cron is a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award and was named to the Louisville Slugger All-American team last week.
