Mike Trout News
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Kansas City Royals. According to Angels interim manager Phil Nevin, Trout is "sore" and needed the day off. The superstar outfielder had not had a day off since suffering a groin injury on June 10. He is slashing .284/.385/.640 with 21 home runs, 43 RBI, 49 runs scored, and 33 walks over 63 games in 2022. Juan Lagares will take Trout's place in the lineup, playing centerfield and batting eighth in Wednesday's game.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (hip) is not in the starting lineup for his team's Friday night contest against the New York Mets. Trout injured his hip while running the bases back on Tuesday and hasn't played since. The star outfielder initially sounded optimistic that he would be able to return to the action on Friday but he will be held out at least another day. Interim manager Phil Nevin did tell reporters that he believes Trout is close to a return. Los Angeles will go with Juan Lagares, Brandon Marsh, and Jo Adell in the outfield as they gear up to take on Mets starter Tylor Megill. Fantasy gamers rostering Trout will want to get him out of their starting lineups on Friday.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (hip) plans to get back in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the New York Mets. He exited early during Tuesday's game and hasn't played since then. He took swings in the batting cage on Thursday, so it sounds like Trout is making progress. The superstar outfielder plans to go through his pregame routine before deciding whether or not he'll play. Fantasy managers will have to check back closer to game time for more information.
Calling Mike Trout great is boring at this point, and his stellar 2021 season should do nothing to change that: .333/.466/.624 with eight homers and a pair of steals in just 146 PAs. However, his detractors may find something to hold against the 30-year-old for the first time in his career. A right calf strain cost Trout roughly three-quarters of the season, though reports indicate that Trout could've come back if the Angels were still in the race and he was expected to have a healthy offseason. A big jump in SwStr% (6.4 in 2020, 10.2 last year) and K% (23.2 to 28.1) may cause more concern, especially since a .456 BABIP masked the impact of those strikeouts on his batting average. Still, Trout also improved his contact quality by adding a tick and a half to his average airborne exit velocity (from 96.1 to 97.8 mph) and boosting his rate of Brls/BBE from 15% to 18.4%. The net result was a .300 xBA, .571 xSLG, and a .423 xwOBA that ranked fourth in MLB among players with at least 50 batted ball events. It seems likely that Trout adjusted his approach to do more damage, and it's working. Locked into the heart of a lineup that also includes defending AL MVP Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Rendon, Trout is an easy first-round talent that often finds himself going in the second with a 15.44 ADP. That's absurd and gives fantasy managers substantial profit potential.
