Three Up, Three Down: Mike Trout Is Getting Even Better


Recommended Posts

Mike Trout, OF, Angels

The best player in baseball is somehow getting even better. Only now just 26 years old and starting to enter his prime—a crazy thought in itself—Trout is on pace to set career-highs in batting average (.336), on-base percentage (.458) and slugging percentage (.720) while reaching 200 hits, 57 home runs, 114 RBIs and 138 runs, all career-highs as well. A year after leading the American League with a 1.071 OPS, Trout is on pace to do more than 100 points better, currently sitting at 1.178. Oh, and his defense is getting better too. He’s on pace for 21 total zone fielding runs above average in center field, per Baseball-Reference, which would be the highest mark of his career. With Trout performing at an other-wordly level, it’s the Angels—not the Astros—who hold first place in the American League West and are on pace for a 100-win season.

If it were ANY other player on the planet, we'd call those pace projections stupid and ridiculous.

But Mike Trout entering his prime....anything is possible.
