Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OFs Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos have only combined for three stolen bases this season even though the team still is looking to be aggressive in their base running. Bourjos said opposing pitchers and the team's lineup are reasons he has not been running. "All the pitchers have been really quick to the plate, and you don't want to run into an out with Trout, [1B Albert Pujols], [OF Josh Hamilton] and [OF Mark Trumbo] hitting behind you," Bourjos said. "You want to be smart about it. You don't want to force the issue."

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout, who was 10-for-44 with 12 strikeouts in his first 10 games, entered the game Tuesday, April 16, with three straight multi-hit games, and he said he's more relaxed at the plate. "First couple games," Trout added, "I've just been anxious to get out there." Trout has been staying back more lately and letting the ball travel instead of going out to get it.
Fantasy Tip: Statistically, Trout is in line for some regression from his gaudy numbers from a season ago. However, there's no denying he is one of the most talented young players in the game. He's still very young, though, and he'll be exposed at times as opposing pitchers make adjustments to him.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia considers the team's new lineup, with OF Mike Trout hitting in front of 1B Albert Pujols and OF Josh Hamilton, to be a long-term look.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout was dropped from leadoff to second in the order Thursday, April 11, with 3B Alberto Callaspo hitting leadoff. SS Erick Aybar (heel), the normal No. 2 hitter, is out with a contusion on his left heel.
Fantasy Tip: This is Mike Scioscia's attempt to get the stagnant offense going, more than anything. It won't hurt that Trout is hitting ahead of Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton now, though. Trout has gotten off to a relatively quiet start to the year.

Craig Landis, agent for Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout, said he is not happy that the team decided to renew Trout's contract and only pay him $510,000 this season. "During the process, on behalf of Mike, I asked only that the Angels compensate Mike fairly for his historic 2012 season, given his service time," Landis said. "In my opinion, this contract falls well short of a 'fair' contract, and I have voiced this to the Angels throughout the process."

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia is not worried that OF Mike Trout arrived to spring training weighing 10 to 15 pounds more than he did last season, sparking concerns that his speed would suffer this year. "He's 21 now, so the weight is not a concern," Scioscia said. "You don't know how much a body is going to fill out. He's running great. He feels great. He's not too far from where he played last year. Everything he has is muscle. His body (composition) is still terrific, from what the trainers tell me." Trout said he's expecting to lose five to 10 pounds during spring camp.
