Latest Update Trout Launches 36th Home Run In Loss Sat Sep, 27, 02:52 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.
It was Trout's 36th home run of the season, a new career high. Unless he powers up for a pair of multi home run games this weekend he won't reach 40, but there should be a few of those in the years to come. For what it's worth (and it's admittedly not worth much), Mike Scoscia guaranteed Trout would once again reach the 40-steal plateau.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Trout has been a man among boys in 2014, slashing .290/.379/.568 with 35 home runs, 109 RBI, 112 runs, and 14 stolen bases. Although this will be the first time in his young career he will not join the 20/20 club, he has more than made up for his lack of stolen bases with his great power set, making him the front runner for AL MVP consideration.

In fact, none of the Angels starters are in the lineup Thursday as the team clinched the AL West and are all getting a well-deserved day off after a night of celebration. Sucks for your fantasy team for the day, but most, if not all will be back over the weekend. Be careful though next week as some guys could get rested a little more than usual.Analyst: Howard Bender
