Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and a pair of walks in Monday's 4-2 win over the Red Sox.
Trout has been slumping int he month of August, hitting a mere .217 with three home runs and 10 RBI over his last 60 at-bats with Monday's multi-hit game being his first since August 9. Even with his recent struggles, Trout is arguably the best fantasy player to own up to this point, while slashing .291/.379/.560 with 27 home runs, 87 RBI, 82 runs scored and 12 steals through 464 at-bats.

Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
