Angels | Mike Trout heating up

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:28:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout hit his fifth home run in a winning effort over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, April 27. He's hitting .353 in his last 14 games after starting the year 5-for-27. Nine of his 37 career hits against the Royals have been home runs.

Fantasy Tip: He also has four home runs in his last seven games, proving that his slow start is already a thing of the past. If you were considering buying low, that opportunity has already passed. There's a reason he was in consideration once again for the first overall fantasy pick this year.

Angels | Mike Trout serving as DH

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:51:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (foot) is serving as the designated hitter for the first time this year Monday, April 25, after fouling a ball off his foot over the weekend. OF Rafael Ortega is in center field and is batting second, while 1B Ji-Man Choi is in left field and is hitting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy. 1B C.J. Cron also takes a seat with 1B Albert Pujols at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Start Trout as you normally would in all fantasy formats. His foot isn't a problem after he started Sunday. Ortega and Choi haven't done much with the bats in Anaheim and are weak daily plays against Kennedy, who is out to a fine start with KC.

Angels | Mike Trout's timing was off

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:02:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout wasn't getting his left foot down in time at the plate, and it caused his stride to lengthen and his timing to be thrown off early in the season. He reached base four times and hit his second home run of the season Thursday, April 21. Trout has reached base seven of eight times with four singles, two walks and a home run since Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: It was only a matter of time before Trout got going. He remains one of the best young players in the game, but his stolen base numbers have been down in recent years, and he's unlikely to run much again this year, which could cap his value. Gauge the Trout owner in your league to see if you can buy low.

Angels | Mike Trout hits second long fly

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:30:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks during the Angels' 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: After reaching base in all four plate appearances Thursday, Trout's slash line is up to .286/.397/.446, and he is a hot stretch away from silencing any buzz his early-season struggles have rendered. It doesn't hurt seeing if the Trout owner in your league is looking to sell, but remain patient if you own the superstar.

Angels | Mike Trout swinging early

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 12:04:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout is swinging at 15% of first pitches so far this year, which is a career high. He's also seeing 4.67 pitches per plate appearance, another career high.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Trout is trying too hard to make up for the offensive shortcomings around him in the lineup. At any rate, he's off to a slow start (.220, one home run, four RBI) for his standards. Stick with him, though. Trout remains one of the best young players in the game.

Angels | Mike Trout, Albert Pujols in funk

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:15:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout and 1B Albert Pujols are both off to slow starts this year. They went 0-for-6 Tuesday, April 19, and are hitting a collective .194 with just 20 hits in 103 at-bats. Pujols has two homers and a team-leading 10 runs, but his slash line is .170/.254/.302. Trout has a line of .220/.333/.340 with a homer and a team-leading nine walks but has also struck out 16 times. "I know what I'm doing wrong," Trout said. "Last couple of games, I created a bad habit. I'm just jumping forward. My head's moving. When the pitch is coming, it's not letting me recognize the pitch. I just have to stay back, trust my hands. We're working on it."

Fantasy Tip: Trout remains one of the best young players in the game, and he'll come around eventually, but you have to worry about the weak-hitting team around him, which could severely limit his ability to score and drive in runs. Pujols proved last year he still has notable power when he's healthy, so you'll need to remain patient with both these superstars.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout drove in his first two runs of the season in a 3-1 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, April 10. He finished 0-for-1 with two walks.

Fantasy Tip: Trout has been slow out of the gate, but there is no reason to panic. Keep starting him, and the numbers will be there sooner rather than later.

Angels | Mike Trout to return Saturday

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 14:33:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (illness) is back in the lineup on Saturday, April 2, after missing the last two days.

Fantasy Tip: The consensus No. 1 pick in fantasy should be all systems go for the opener against the Chicago Cubs on Monday. The 2014 AL MVP is batting .388 with four homers, 15 RBI and three steals this spring, but could start off a bit slow if he feels the effects of the illness. Even if that is the case, the Angels play their first six games at home and have a day off on Wednesday, so Trout should be back to his normal self shortly.
