Mike Trout has been named MVP of the 2014 All-Star game.
For an encore his mom should have jumped in the 'vette and challenge her son to a race out of the stadium for the ultimate mic drop ever. While that did not happen, Trout continues to solidify himself as the league's top all-around superstar with one MVP down and possibly another one to come as his first half stats place him arguably at the top of the conversation for this year's end of the season AL MVP honors. Trout finished Tuesday's ASG game going 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI, and a run scored.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Odubel Herrera will bat leadoff for the Phillies on Sunday.
The Phillies like his bat, which is why they made him a Rule 5 pick from Texas. He figures to play all three outfield positions as well as second base this spring. He will likely be a bench player out of camp if he can hit this spring. He did show some power development in the Venezuelan Winter League, but it remains to be seen if that is something that moves forward for him or not. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
