Latest Update Mike Trout Hits 35th Home Run Sun Sep, 21, 03:05 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.
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
Trout is now slashing .291/.381/.567 with 34 home runs, 107 RBI and 108 runs scored through 570 at-bats this season as he continues to keep him name in the MVP considerations.
