Mike Trout did not play during Sunday's 5-0 loss against the Dodgers to conclude the Angels season.
Much like teammate Anthony Rendon, Trout was rested once the team was eliminated from playoff contention. Trout finishes the abbreviated season with a .281 AVG and stellar .993 OPS to go along with 41 R, 17 HR, 46 RBI, and 1 SB in 53 games this season. Trout remains an elite fantasy contributor and will once again be worthy of a top-five selection in fantasy drafts next spring.
Mike Trout connected for a three-run home run in Friday’s loss to the Dodgers. Trout smashed a Clayton Kershaw curveball with two on and two out in the top of the third inning to briefly give the Angels the lead. It was the first home run of Trout’s career off of the future Hall-of-Fame pitcher. He finished the game 1-for-4 with one run and three RBI.
Trout entered the night in a bit of a slump over the past two weeks, as he had not homered in his past 12 games while hitting just .233 (10-for-43) over that stretch. The Angels fell to 26-32 on the season with tonight’s loss and once again will not be playing in the postseason (last playoff berth was 2014). In 53 games this season, Trout is slashing .281/.603/.993 with 17 HR, 41 R, 46 RBI, and 1 SB and is tied with Marcell Ozuna and Jose Ramirez for the third most homers in the majors behind Luke Voit (21) and Jose Abreu (19).
Angels megastar Mike Trout drove in the winning run for the Angels on Saturday night, lacing a go-ahead RBI single to left field in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Angels a 4-3 victory over the Rangers. The RBI single was Trout’s only hit of the evening, but he sure did make it count. Trout finished the night 1-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout.
With the game tied in the bottom of the eighth inning, men on the corners, and nobody out, Trout came through with a clutch go-ahead RBI single to propel the Angels to victory. Trout has been in a bit of a skid recently, as he is 6-for-26 (.231) with only two runs and four RBI in his past 7 games and has not homered since September 10th. Hopefully tonight's heroics will get him going again just in time for the final week of the season.
Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout in a 9-8 loss to Arizona on Tuesday night.
Trout has not homered in the past four games and has now fallen two home runs behind Yankees slugger Luke Voit for the major-league lead (18). Trout still sports an elite 1.042 OPS and remains a top-five player in fantasy leagues.
Angels superstar center-fielder Mike Trout connected for his major league-leading 16th home run on Wednesday night, crushing a low fastball deep into the left center-field seats at Globe Life Field (estimated 449 ft). Trout finished the game 2-for-5 with two runs and one RBI in a 6-2 win over Texas.
Trout moved in to sole possession of the MLB lead in HR with his 16th blast tonight, now leading Nelson Cruz and Fernando Tatis, Jr. by one home run as of this writing. Trout is hitting .296 with a 1.057 OPS and it's a true shame that his team is unlikely to make the postseason yet again. He is truly amazing.
