  2. Michael Nelson "Mike" Trout (born August 7, 1991), nicknamed The Millville Meteor, is the center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball. Trout was the American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2014, is a four-time All-Star, and a two-time All-Star Game MVP since becoming a regular player in 2012 (More on that below from our Top-50 Greatest Moments in Angels History). Trout was a first-round pick by the Angels in the 2009 MLB draft, and made a brief major league appearance in 2011. He became a regular player for the Angels the subsequent season, and unanimously won the 2012 AL Rookie of the Year Award. Trout finished second in AL MVP voting in 2012, 2013 and 2015. In addition to being named Most Valuable Player in 2014, he won the 2014 AL Hank Aaron Award. Trout is under contract with the Angels until the end of the 2020 season. Trout's MLB performances have received praise from both the mainstream media and sabermetricians, and he is regarded as one of the most outstanding young players in the history of baseball, as well as one of the best current players in all of MLB. Trout has led the major leagues in wins above replacement (WAR) during his first three full seasons in MLB (according to Fangraphs and Baseball-Reference.com) and was second to Bryce Harper in his fourth. Trout's combination of power and speed has drawn comparisons to Hall of Fame center fielder Mickey Mantle.[109] Trout has hit at least 27 home runs and 35 other extra base hits per season between 2012 and 2015, while also maintaining a high batting average and walk rate. He is particularly able to hit pitches that are low in the strike zone. Trout's speed has allowed him to be an above average defender in center field (according to ultimate zone rating) and he is also a proficient baserunner, stealing 113 bases between 2012 and 2015 at a success rate of 84 percent. In the four-year period since Trout became a regular player, he has been MLB's most productive batter, according to Fangraphs. Trout led all MLB players in total runs above average (park-adjusted wRAA) with 221.5 runs, and led all qualified players in productivity per plate appearance (wRC+), producing runs at a rate 71 percent above league average. Trout's exceptional performance at his young age has caused him to be compared to Ted Williams.. Mike Trout featured in our AngelsWin.com's Top-50 Greatest Moments in Angels History #9 - 2014, 2015: Mike Trout's MVP's By Nate Trop - AngelsWin.com Staff Writer Starting with the day Mike Trout was drafted to all of his accolades in the minors to his dominance of MLB, Angels fans knew it was only a matter of time until he was the AL MVP. In 2012 his first full season he put on a dynamic display of power, speed, and athleticism leading the league in stolen bases, runs, OPS+ and making catches in center field that no human should ever be capable of. In 2013 he did more of the same, leading the league in walks and for the second year in a row, in runs scored, stepping up his OPS to .988 and OPS+ to 179. Both years he finished second in MVP voting to Miguel Cabrera, who might be a statue in the field but offensively he was mashing the ball including the first triple crown in decades. If you are a believer in WAR and sabermetrics, Mike Trout deserved the MVP both years but if you believe in the old school stats they favored Miguel Cabrera and it didn’t help that the Angels failed to make the playoffs both years. In 2014 it was a different story. After hitting a single in his first at-bat of the 2012 All Star Game and a double in his first at-bat of the 2013 All Star Game, he hit a triple in his first at-bat of the 2014 All Star Game and ended up adding a double and a walk to go 2-3 with a run scored, two RBI and his first MVP, the all-star variety. He wasn’t finished though leading the league in RBI and for the third straight year runs scored and WAR, slugging the Angels to the best record in baseball and his first playoff series. The conversation was no longer about WAR vs old school, there was no doubt he would be the MVP and on November 13th 2014 it was announced that he was unanimously selected as the AL MVP, the sixth player ever to win both the ASG and league MVP in the same season and the fifth-youngest player ever to win the MVP. His first at-bat of the 2015 All Star Game was a home run to right field that few players in baseball could hit, finishing off the first at-bat of the ASG cycle. He was the fourth player ever to lead off the ASG with a home run and he finished the game 1-3 with an RBI and two runs scored and became the first player ever to win back to back All Star Game MVPs. Unfortunately the rest of 2015 ended with a familiar story, there was another catch and even though he lead the league in slugging, OPS and once again, WAR, the Angels missed the playoffs and Josh Donaldson had an equally impressive season playing for a playoff bound team, leaving Trout the MVP runner-up for the third time in four seasons. Some baseball writers and pundits would tell you that there is such a thing as “Trout Fatigue.” That he is so consistently good, and makes it look so easy, that baseball fans and experts take him for granted. I believe it to be true so to claim another MVP award on a team that quite frankly stunk would be a huge accomplishment. As the 2016 season wound down the usual conversation was going on, stop me if you have heard this before… Trout lead the league in WAR, runs, OPS+, OBP, second in OPS, and the list goes on, but he was on a team that was not ever close to the playoff race, and the young Mookie Betts of the hated Chowds seemed to be the favorite to win the award, he had an excellent season and he played for one of the best teams in baseball. Also in the conversation was Jose Altuve, a lovable short guy (seriously, who doesn’t love a short guy) that played for a team that just missed the playoffs and lead the league in average and hits while playing excellent defense. Fortunately, the Trout Fatigue was overcome and once again Mike Trout was rightfully recognized as the best player in the AL with his second MVP award. As Angels fans, it really is great to be able to watch the best player in baseball do his thing day in and day out.. #19 - 2012: Trout's Rookie Season for the Ages By Geoff Bilau - AngelsWin.com Senior Editor Of all the superlatives that can be lavished upon Mike Trout’s rookie season, perhaps the simplest and most appropriate is “unprecedented,” because no rookie in Major League history reached the statistical heights Trout achieved. For that matter, no second-, third- or even 20th-year player did so, either. And he did it all as a 20-year-old. .326/.399/.594, 129 runs, 27 2B, 8 3B, 30 HR, 83 RBI, 49 SB Trout led the American League in runs scored and stolen bases and finished second in batting average, despite starting the year at AAA Salt Lake and missing the first 20 Major League games. As for “unprecedented,” no player in Major League Baseball’s 141 years had ever surpassed 125 runs, 30 home runs and 45 stolen bases in the same season. Not one. Furthermore, he became the youngest player in history to record a 30 HR-30 SB season and the first rookie to combine 30 HR and 40 SB. Only two rookies scored more runs: Joe DiMaggio (132 in 1936) and Ted Williams (131 in 1939). He was named an American League All-Star, American League Rookie of the Year, won a Silver Slugger and finished second in the American League MVP balloting to Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. And, oh, all of those gravity-defying catches… After making his celebrated, but far-from-polished big league debut as a 19-year-old in 2011 (batting just .220 and coming within a couple plate appearances of qualifying as a rookie), Trout was no sure bet to make the Angels 2012 roster out of spring training, especially not with an outfield/DH picture crowded by big contracts (Albert Pujols, Torii Hunter, Vernon Wells), big emergences (Mark Trumbo, Peter Bourjos) and big question marks (Kendrys Morales). When Trout missed almost all of the spring with an energy-sapping illness, his fate was sealed — he would start the season in the minors. While the “Millville Meteor” was batting .403/.467/.623 for the Bees, the Angels were woefully matching the franchise’s worst start (6-14) and falling nine games behind the Rangers for the division lead. In the midst of a five-game losing streak, the Angels recalled Trout on April 28 with the team in Cleveland. He went 0-4 from the leadoff spot, but the Angels won, 2-1. With Trout setting the table, the Angels fortunes quickly turned. The team went 18-11 in May and climbed back to .500 for the first time since the season’s fourth game. Trout batted .324/.385/.556, but continued to fly under the radar of a baseball world that seemed preoccupied by Nationals rookie Bryce Harper. He was even better in June, posting a .372/.419/.531 line and helping the Angels to a 17-9 record in the month to pull within 4.5 games of the division-leading Rangers. It was what he did on June 27 in Baltimore, however, that finally made the baseball world truly sit up and take notice. With his family and friends watching at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Trout made an unbelievable leaping catch in center field to rob shortstop J.J. Hardy of a first-inning home run. The catch was replayed for weeks and when people started to look at what he was doing with his bat and on the bases, as well, the youngster was not only a lock for the All-Star game, but suddenly in the discussion for AL MVP. In July, Trout moved from “discussion” to “front runner,” posting an astounding .392/.455/.804 line. Comparisons to baseball’s immortals — DiMaggio, Williams, Mays, Mantle, even Ruth — became commonplace as statistical projections started to paint a picture of accomplishments matched only by the greatest of all-time — or no one in some cases. Though he “slumped” to .287/.383/.500 from Aug. 1 on, and the Angels were ultimately unable to keep up with the Rangers and surprise division-winning Athletics, Trout made three more remarkable HR-robbing catches and sold more merchandise in the Angels team store than Pujols and all of his teammates combined. At 10.7, he led the Major Leagues in Wins Above Replacement (WAR), a “new-age” unit of measure that combines all conceivable statistical information — offense, defense and base running — into the number of victories a player is worth over a league-average alternative. Only three players in history posted a higher WAR before the age of 25: Ruth (11.6 in 1920), Gehrig (11.5 in 1927) and Mantle (11.1 in 1957 and 11.0 in 1956). His season ranks 20th all-time and every player ahead of Trout (Ruth, Hornsby, Yastrzemski, Bonds*, Gehrig, Ripken, Wagner, Cobb, Mantle, Mays, Morgan, Musial and Williams) is in the Hall of Fame. For Angels fans, it was a rookie campaign for the ages, only the franchise’s second ROY (Salmon, 1993) and left just one question: What will he do for an encore?

  3. One of the podcasts I subscribe to had Angels pitcher Cody Ege on this week. He gives some really great perspective on being a young Major Leaguer and having the opportunity to play with big time stars. In his short career he has already been teammates with Trout, Pujols, Lincecum, Giancarlo Stanton, Jose Fernandez, Dee Gordon, and Ichiro and has some really great stories about his time. I think Angels fans will especially like hearing his story of facing Robinson Cano last year and hearing his mindset when he was on the mound against him. Check it out.

  4. A New Nickname for Mike Trout

    Over on my fan page's Facebook page I encouraged people to come up with a new nickname for Mike Trout (because no one calls him Millville Meteor). Here are the ones that I thought were the best. Here's the poll I'm running on my site too. Choose your favorite
  5. Lead off hitter

    I find it interesting that Joe Madden is saying he's gonna use Schwarber to lead off, and terry Francona using Santana. Maybe Scocia should consider using our best hitter to lead off. After all the lead off hitter will get the most AB's.

  7. AngelsWin.com's Hot Prospect List May 23, 2011 (Arkansas Travelers OF, Mike Trout) Hot Prospects May 23rd, 2011 By David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer Better. After two brutal weeks in the Minor Leagues (and for that matter, the Major Leagues) things are starting to turn around. The Triple-A Salt Lake Bees turned in their second week of .500 baseball going 3-3 for the week. The Double-A Travelers flipped their record from last week and went 4-3 to get into the winning ways. The Single-A 66ers won their first back-to-back wins in the month and went 3-4 on the week. And the Single-A Cedar Rapids Kernels limped along at 1-5. Still, there were plenty of standout performances. Here are 10 of the best. 1. Mike Trout, CF, AA Arkansas Travelers Overall: .308/.415/.538 with 6 HR and 9 SBs What’s Up: On the surface, it appears to be a good, but not great week for Trout. That’s because he went 7/21 with a double, a triple, and 3 SBs. But, for those who like walks, consider this: Trout had 9 walks to go along with his 7 hits, giving him a .533 OB%! At 19 years old, he’s 4th in the Texas League in OB%. His 9 SBs ties him for 8th in the league and his.538 SLG% is 13th in the league. Overall, he’s 9th in the league in OPS. There’s not much more that needs to be said about Trout. He’s just that good. 2. Kyle Hurst, RHP, Single-A Inland Empire 66ers Overall: 5-1, 0 Saves, 2.97 ERA, 39.1 IP, 41 H, 11 BB, 25 K, 1.32 WHIP, .263 BAA What’s Up: Kyle Hurst has been off to a hot start this year. Originally at Double-A Arkansas, Hurst was sent down to Single-A as part of the injury bug reshuffling that the Angels organization underwent. For the week, Hurst accounted for 2/3rds of the 66ers’ wins. He went 2-0 in 13.0 scoreless innings, striking out 10 and only walking 4. Hurst lowered his ERA by two runs with his performance this week. Considering how much the 66ers have been struggling so far, Hursts’ performance this week was something special. Hurst will try and extend his win streak this Friday at home. 3. Ryan Mount, 2B/OF, AA Arkansas Travelers Overall: .308/.415/.538 with 6 HR and 9 SBs What’s Up: Pairing up with Trout for the week was Ryan Mount. He’s returned to form as a 2B capable of putting up big numbers. For the week he went 8/23 (.348) with 2 doubles and a homerun. Mount has been batting throughout the heart of the Travelers’ order. His 23 RBIs are second on the club (behind Jimenez who has 25) and his 21 runs are also second on the club (behind Trout who has 28). It’s good to see that a Mount is healthy and putting together his best season since 2008. 4. Orangel Arenas, RHP, AA Arkansas Travelers Overall: 5-1, 0 Saves, 3.59 ERA, 42.2 IP, 39 H, 15 BB, 16 K, 1.27 WHIP, .244 BAA What’s Up: For the past few years, Arenas is flying well below the radar. But, that might not last for much longer, especially if he has more weeks like this. On the week, Arenas went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA, winning his one start of the week. Arenas is a ground ball specialist who is getting the job done. He’s generating a 2.24 GO/AO ratio with his fastball, slider, and changeup. While he isn’t striking out that many batters (3.38/9.0 IP), as Pineiro has shown, a pitcher can have success by controlling the zone and generating lots of ground balls. To that end, Arenas is doing exactly that. At just 22, Arenas is well in line for moving up as a prospect. 5. Trevor Reckling, LHP, AA Arkansas Travelers Overall: 1-6, 0 Saves, 3.69 ERA, 46.1 IP, 45 H, 15 BB, 32 K, 1.29 WHIP, .260 BAA What’s Up: If there is one area where sabermetrics has made a big improvement to the understanding of the game, it’s in understanding how little a starter’s win/loss record reflects his performance or value to the team. By old-school measures, Reckling’s performance would be seen as continuation of his poor start in Triple-A last year. But, by modern measures, he’s made a dramatic improvement. The hits are down. The walks are down. The homeruns are down. In other words, he’s back on track. On the week, Reckling had his worst start of the year early in the week and then bounced right back to earn his first win on the season. Last year, the struggles seemed to pile up on Reckling as he fell into a tailspin at Triple-A. This year, he’s showing much more resiliency on the mound—something that will serve him well if he plays for Scioscia. 6. Carlos Ramirez, C, Single-A Inland Empire 66ers Overall: .283/.397/.398 with 3 HRs and 1 SB What’s Up: As if fans didn’t have enough reasons to go out and see the IE 66ers play, last week, they gained another one. That’s because Carlos Ramirez was promoted to the club from Cedar Rapids. Fans will want to see how he develops both offensively and defensively. Ramirez can crush the ball and is very patient at the plate. Defensively, he can throw runners out, having caught 35% of all opposing runners in his Minor League career. So far, Ramirez has been treating the fans in both areas. In two games, he’s gone 4/5 (.800) with 3 walks (.875 OB%) and thrown 2 out of 3 opposing base runners out. If you haven’t booked a trip out to Arrowhead Credit Union Park, you better plan one soon. 7. Jean Segura, SS, Single-A Inland Empire 66ers Overall: .291/.357/.440 with 3 HRs and 16 SBs What’s Up: Segura came back off of the Disabled List and immediately made an impact back on his club. He slugged a homerun in his first game back! So far this season, Segura has been posting some numbers that are sure to appeal to Scioscia. With runners on, he’s hitting .371 in 70 ABs. With runners in scoring position, he’s hitting .417 and 14 RBIs. What the Angels would give for that in their lineup. For the week, he went 5/17 with 1 homerun, 2 doubles, and 1 stolen base. Having Segura back in their lineup should be a big boost to the overall team’s performance. 8. Max Russell, LHP, Low-A CR Kernels Overall: 4-2, 0 Saves, 2.39 ERA, 52.2 IP, 42 H, 19 BB, 39 K, 1.16 WHIP, .213 BAA What’s Up: This week the Kernels received several good pitching performances. But, for the week, Russell’s efforts were a little bit better. He went 1-0 in two starts, pitching 14.2 innings, allowing only 1 earned run on 4 hits and 7 walks. He struck out 11 along the way and generated a bunch of ground balls. While the walks are a bit of a concern on the year, his overall numbers are well worth being pleased about. In 9 starts this season, he’s made 7 quality appearances, going at least 6.0 IP and holding the opposition to 3 or fewer earned runs. He’s definitely working his way up the depth chart. 9. Gabe Jacobo, 1B, AA Arkansas Travelers Overall: .467/.467/.513 with 0 HRs and 0 SBs What’s Up: Gabe’s season didn’t begin until this past week. But, he’s making up for lost time, going 4/15 with a double in his first four games. The former Minor League Defensive Player of the Year for the Angels is picking up right where last year left off. This year, Jacobo has to answer two big questions. First, can he develop enough plate discipline to a productive Major League first baseman? Second, is his power legitimate? Although he hit 22 homeruns last year, he played in the hitter friendly Cal League, so, Arkansas may present an entirely different challenge for him. Defensively, Jacobo can play the position at a Major League level. The question now is can he play it offensively at the same level? 10. The Veterans at Salt Lake Jeff Baisley, 3B, Class Triple-A Salt Lake Bees Overall: .356/.403/.620 with 10 HRs and 1 SB Ronald Bay, RHP, Class Triple-A Salt Lake Bees Overall: 2-2, 0 Saves, 4.30 ERA, 46.0 IP, 61 H, 10 BB, 25 K, 1.87 WHIP, .326 BAA Eric Junge, RHP, Class Triple-A Salt Lake Bees Overall: 2-2, 0 Saves, 3.67 ERA, 54.0 IP, 49 H, 16 BB, 33 K, 1.20 WHIP, .253 BAA Gil Velazquez, SS, Class Triple-A Salt Lake Bees Overall: .370/.437/.529 with 2 HRs and 5 SBs What’s Up: With so many of the younger players from Triple-A already up on the Major League roster, it’s been up to a collection of journeymen to hold the team together. Luckily for the Bees veterans such as Baisley, Bay, Junge, and Velazquez have been there to pick up the slack. All of these guys are a bit long in the tooth to be considered Top Prospects, but all of these guys are clearly playing some of the best baseball of their careers. For the week, Baisely went 7/19 (.368), Bay went 1-0 with 10 Ks in 13.0 IP, Junge went 2-0 with a 0.57 ERA, and Velazquez went 8/19 (.421). Without these guys stepping up, things would be much worse for Salt Lake. You have to respect these guys playing for love of the game. http://tinyurl.com/jfylnh3
  8. Baseball Prospectus does a feature article on every team this spring as part of their "Winter is Leaving" series. Today, their article was on the Angels, and it focuses on the tandem of Trout & Simmons being projected by PECOTA as having the second highest WAR for any tandem (Kershaw and Grandal of the Doyyers being first) on any team in MLB. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=28613
  9. This is a graphic I made to celebrate his accomplishment. Before the season began I actually predicted he would hit his 100th HR tonight. He's the youngest to reach 100 HR and 100 SB AND the youngest to reach 101 HR and 101 SB. Thanks to Jeff Fletcher for finding that stat.
  10. I wanted to share my most recent pencil art of Mike Trout.
  11. No Doubt

    Time to get the MVP campaign going.
  12. With His Teeth

    I can't remember who said it in the other thread, but it was so funny I made an image out of it.
  13. Salmon vs. Trout

    As I was reading some of the AW goodness, I had a thought during my boredom. Tim Salmon is revered here, like good wood. While he was a longtime Angel during some really awful years, I've never quite understood the passion for him, unless most of his big supporters where growing up during that time. Many people thinks his number should be retired, and he's the greatest Angel of all time. How long until Trout eclipses that? Everyone is a WAR buff when it comes to Trout and his 20.8. Seeing that Salmon only managed to accrue a 40.6 in his career, about 10 spots behind sure-lock HOFs, Placido Polanco and Andy Van Slyke, how long until Trout is defined as the best Angel, at least in the argument of best outfielder? Trout should bust Salmon's WAR in his FOURTH season, which might tell you just how mediocre Salmon was. Just curious what the thoughts were from some of the big time Salmon supporters.

  15. Hey I'm new here. I write for MLB Nation and I guessed you wanted to read this Angels article: http://www.themlbnation.com/2013/08/22/mike-trout/ Please tell me what you think, Thanks.

    Either this is a mistake or Howie hasn't seen the sun in a while.
  17. I know we've posted stuff like this about Trouty before, but I thought I'd create a thread to house them all in one place. So post your best creative WMIBP line. Go!
  18. Mike Trout Super Drink

    JUST in case anyone really cares, the New Body Armor "Super Drink" that the best baseball player on the planet is now endorsing, is made of good stuff (for example, pure cane sugar rather than Hi Fructose Corn Syrup and coconut water) but it COULD be better on the taste factor - I got the Orange Mango. I suppose I could have used the shout box for this info BUT whatever...enjoy
  19. I see he is hawking Super Pretzel. Good for him. A lot more indorsement deals to come for him.
