FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Mike Trout blasted a 3-run walk-off shot on Thursday to give the Angels a 6-5 victory over the Rays.

Trout has been slumping of late, going 6-for-31 (.194 BA) over his last seven games but five of those hits have gone for extra-bases (2 HR). He is now sitting on a .269 average with eight homers and 27 RBI through 160 at-bats while having trouble with with the strikeout (32.5 percent K Rate). Although the high strikeout rate is alarming, Trout owners have nothing to worry about as he should continue to produce quality fantasy numbers in between those swing and misses. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
