Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:40:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout hit two home runs and finished with five RBIs in a 6-3 win over the Houston Astros Friday, April 17, and he became the youngest player to hit 100 home runs and steal 100 bases.

Fantasy Tip: Trout ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is living up to expectations so far, and he is hitting .444 with nine run scored and nine RBIs in 10 games. He has hit safely in every game this year, and he has multiple hits in five of his last seven. If you are going to spend up for a hitter at FantasyScore, Trout should be at the top of list.

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 11:26:56 -0700

Fantasy Tip: As if you needed any more reason to select Trout with the No. 1 overall fantasy pick. He's the consensus top pick in all fantasy formats, and he should have another outstanding season.

Angels | Mike Trout trying to cut down K's

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:55:10 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout wants to be more aggressive early in counts after striking out an American League-leading 184 times last season. "I'm looking to drive the ball a little bit," Trout said. "The biggest thing about cutting down on the strikeouts is getting a pitch early in the zone to drive. I'm going to work on that this spring. Throughout my whole career, I've been taking. I like to see pitches, but I'm going to get locked and loaded first pitch. If it's in the zone, I'm going to take a hack at it."

Fantasy Tip: Trout demonstrated his willingness to be more aggressive in his first spring training at-bat, swinging at the first pitch he saw. The supremely talented outfielder is already the consensus top pick, and if he's able to cut down on punch outs, his production could be remarkable.

Angels | Mike Trout has flaws?

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 11:24:38 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout finished with a .287 batting average in 2014 after hitting .326 and .323 in his first two seasons, and he plans to address some of his flaws in the cages with hitting coach Don Baylor this spring. Trout led the American League in strikeouts with 184 K's last year, and he said a failure to get his foot down in time was a big culprit. "Plain and simple, I was chasing the high pitch," Trout said. "Everybody knows that. The majority of the time, they were balls. Obviously you don't want to strike out. I'd like to put the ball in play and let my legs help me get a few more hits."

Fantasy Tip: An MVP player that goes into the offseason with something to prove is a scary thing. Trout is the unquestioned first overall pick in fantasy baseball for a reason, even though his numbers dipped slightly last year.

Angels | Mike Trout could be third in lineup

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 13:44:28 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout will likely bat third in the lineup, between OF Matt Joyce and 1B Albert Pujols.

Fantasy Tip: The lineup is slowly falling into place for the Angels, who have a formidable lineup at the job with OF Kole Calhoun likely leading off. Trout will likely go at the top of many fantasy leagues, and Joyce's status could be fairly strong in leagues if his bat looks good this spring.

Angels | Mike Trout favorite to bat second?

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:40:02 -0800

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels OF Mike Trout is best to hit out of the No. 2 spot for the Angels, according to Angels manager Mike Scioscia. Recent reports suggested Trout could hit third.

Fantasy Tip: There are conflicting reports about where Trout will hit in the Angels' order, but it's best to take the word of the skipper in this case. Hitting third would likely provide Trout a few more opportunities to drive in runs, but the extra at-bats he'll receive hitting second will increase the value of his high batting average to the point of offsetting the lost RBIs chances. Trout should remain the top choice in fantasy baseball drafts.

Angels | Mike Trout to hit third?

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 11:56:40 -0800

Los Angeles Angles of Anaheim OF Mike Trout is expected to be considered for a move into the No. 3 spot in the batting order this year on a full-time basis. However, that move might only be possible if OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is fully healthy and productive.

Fantasy Tip: Trout is the non-disputed No. 1 overall pick in fantasy baseball drafts this year. However, a move to the third spot permanently would make him just a little bit more attractive with the ability to drive in more runs at the heart of the Halos' order.
