Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout's defensive metrics are among the worst in the league this season.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) tripled in his rehab start with Single-A Inland Empire Monday, June 3, and he's expected to come off the disabled list later this week. Bourjos will go back to starting in center field, pushing OF Mike Trout back to left field.
Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck will lose basically all of his minimal fantasy value when Bourjos returns. In deep mixed leagues, Bourjos can provide stolen-base seekers a nice weapon. Stash him now if that is your need.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) will return to center field when he comes back, pushing OF Mike Trout back to left field. Bourjos hopes to begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Inland Empire Monday, June 3.
Fantasy Tip: With regular playing time, Bourjos can be a nice speed asset in mixed leagues, assuming he can pick up where he left off before landing on the disabled list. J.B. Shuck will return to a bench role and will be largely useless, except in AL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout was 1-for-12 in his last four games before hitting for the cycle to raise his average to .278 on the season Tuesday, May 21, and he had been 1-for-9 on pitches in the lower half of the strike zone. Trout excelled on those pitches last year, leading the league in all three slash-line stats (.360/.394/.608). However, this year, he had only a .259 batting average against those pitches before Tuesday. All four of his hits Tuesday were pitches lower in the zone, though.
Fantasy Tip: Trout has underwhelmed so far this season compared to his ridiculous rookie campaign. We warned fantasy owners that Trout was in line for regression, and although he remains an excellent long-term fantasy commodity, don't expect him to go on a tear and duplicate his 2012 numbers for the remainder of this season.

Although Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout is in center field now while OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) recovers from a strained left hamstring, the plan is to return Trout to left field when Bourjos comes back in two to four weeks.

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 has already shed the extra 15 pounds he had in spring training, and he remains one of the fastest players in the majors; he's running to first base at between 3.9 and 4.0 seconds.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout slapped his first career grand slam Saturday, April 20, against the Detroit Tigers. He wasn't fazed, saying it was "just another home run."
Wed, 17 Apr 2013 13:39:39 -0700
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.
