According to Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout's agent, Craig Landis, the team has had no talks about a long-term contract extension with his client. Trout is making $510,000 this year but is willing to wait for a big contract offer. "I'll answer one question on contract talks -- there have been no discussions," Landis said. "Obviously, Mike's future is extremely bright. We'll be patient. Mike's a young guy. However it goes, he's going to make a lot of money and be a great player." Trout won't be eligible for salary arbitration until 2015, and he's open to signing with another team when he's a free agent after the 2017 season.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (hamstring) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 20. He received treatment Monday, Aug. 19; he was a little sore but said the hamstring felt "a lot better."
Fantasy Tip: Adjust your daily lineups accordingly, and it may be a bit before we see him back in the lineup, though it could be sometime near the end of the week. It's good timing for Peter Bourjos, recently back from the DL, to sneak in some at-bats for brief mixed-league utility.
