Latest Update Trout Homers In ALDS Loss Mon Oct, 06, 12:17 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.
Too little, too late, Mr. Trout. Better luck next season. Finishing the year on a four-game 0-for-10 probably wasn't the best way to head into the post-season and likely a contributor to why he went just 1-for-12 with this home run in the series loss to the Royals. Trout will hopefully take this as another lesson learned and come back stronger next season. While his stolen base total dropped considerably, Trout showed that we're just scratching the surface of his power. His mark of 36 home runs stands as the career-high for now, but it looks like he should level off as a potential .300-40-20 guy which, in anyone's book should still be considered numbers worthy of the top overall pick in fantasy.Analyst: Howard Bender
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.
