Trout Homers, But Angels Fall Short

by Jesse Garcia | Angels Correspondent | Wed, Apr 24th 8:24pm EDT

Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Angels' 6-5 loss to the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite the loss, Trout's solo shot adds a bit of silver lining to his otherwise underwhelming start to the season. With a batting average lingering at .237 and a BABIP of .206, it's clear Trout has been a victim of some bad luck, considering his solid .374 wOBA suggests better days should be ahead. Fantasy managers should keep faith in Trout's ability to rebound, especially given his power-speed combination, evidenced by his 10 homers and 5 stolen bases already. His high strikeout rate remains a concern, but his track record suggests he can adjust and improve as the season progresses.
