Mike Trout went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in the Angels win over the A's on Sunday.
The lack of stolen bases this season might be the only complaint Trout owners will have by seasons end but, his 29 home runs is just one away from his career high and his 91 RBI are just six away from his career high of 97 that he set last year. Trout is still just 23 years old and his 5-tool talent will make him one of the most exciting baseball players for many years to come.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Eduardo Rodriguez will start Thursday in Texas for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox were considering bringing Rodriguez up in late April when Wade Miley was struggling but now they may consider him a potential replacement for the nightmare that is Joe Kelly. He'll start Thursday to stay on his regular throwing schedule and this may only be a spot start/audition, but keep an eye on him especially if there's a chance he joins the rotation.

Wil Myers (wrist) is improving but not close to returning.
It's not so much that he isn't close to returning, it's that the Padres are being very cautious with him and have not set a timetable for him to start swinging a bat. Once he does start, it might not be too long before he lands on a rehab assignment. The team is hoping for an early-to-mid June return, but we'll just have to wait and see. Analysis: Howard Bender
