Mike Trout busted out of the gate on Opening Day blasting a 2-run home run in his 1st AB off of King Felix. Trout finished the game going 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored.
Money Mike was exactly that Monday night as he became the youngest Angels player in franchise history to go yard on Opening Day. Looking ahead to Tuesday, Trout is 4-for-10 with a home run off of Mariners Tuesday starter Erasmo Ramirez, something to keep in mind for you DFS players, granted Ramirez was much improved this spring.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
