Latest Update Mike Trout hits 24th home run Wed Jul, 23, 07:43 AM
Is a great all-round hitter, with tremendous speed and an even better approach at the dish. Can cover plenty of ground in any of the outfield positions. Displays home-run power and the ability to produce a ton of runs. Simply put, he's an amazing catalyst.
Flaws: : Occasionally, he will lose concentration in the field (or on base). He could also stand to be a bit more smooth when patrolling the outfield. Also, he doesn't have the type of arm to prevent runners from taking an extra base on him fairly regularly.
Tough night for the Angels as Trout was one of just two players to get a hit Tuesday against Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez. Of course, Trout made his felt even more with a two-run blast, his 24th of the season, which ultimately sent Gonzalez to the showers. Just Trout being Trout, right people? Batting a cool .309 with 24 dingers, 76 RBI and 10 stolen bases. Could the stolen base total be higher? Sure. But complaining about Trout's numbers just makes you sound like jerk, not a savvy fantasy owner.Analyst: Howard Bender
Trout has picked up right where he left off to start the second half, with Sunday's performance being his second multi-hit game since returning from the All-Star break. He is now slashing .313/.400/.612 with 23 home runs, 74 RBI and 10 stolen bases through his first 361 at-bats and has shown no signs of slowing down anytime soon. There is no doubt he is the top fantasy option at this point in the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
For an encore his mom should have jumped in the 'vette and challenge her son to a race out of the stadium for the ultimate mic drop ever. While that did not happen, Trout continues to solidify himself as the league's top all-around superstar with one MVP down and possibly another one to come as his first half stats place him arguably at the top of the conversation for this year's end of the season AL MVP honors. Trout finished Tuesday's ASG game going 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI, and a run scored.Analyst: Michael Pichan
The home run was Trout's second in as many games versus the Rangers and his 22nd on the season. He is now on pace to go yard 39 times this year with over 120 RBI and 110-plus runs scored.Analyst: Michael Pichan
