Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout said Saturday, March 15, that he is looking to be more aggressive early in the count in an effort to cut down on strikeouts. "I think the biggest thing, for me, is being aggressive early," Trout said. "A lot of counts last year, I'd be taking, seeing pitches. But I'm going to be aggressive this year. Instead of just flipping one over for strike one, or 2-0 strike one, I'm going to be up there hacking, I'm going to be up there swinging."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners can't really complain about anything with Trout, but if he curbed his strikeouts even slightly, he would be even more of a stud. He already said earlier in the spring he wants to run more, too, so it is nice to see he isn't resting on his laurels, and is working hard to be even better.
