Trout's last 29 games


Dochalo

Recommended Posts

He had back to back 2hr performances in Seattle on the 11th and 12th of June.  

At that point I think it occurred to every team that there's no reason to throw him strikes.  

They've walked him intentionally 11 times during that span.  30bb/25k over that time as well with a slash of .312/.492/.409/.901.  

They're throwing him strikes about 34% of the time and that doesn't even count the intl walk abs as there is no pitch data for those which would bring it down to about 30%.  Before that time it was about 42%.  

Pre 
with bases empty - .734 slg with .422 iso, .436 obp
with runner/s on - .591 slg with .284 iso, .441 obp

Post 
with bases empty - .415 slg with .138 iso, .405 obp
with runner/s on - .393 slg with .000 iso, .633 obp

That's right.  he has zero xbh in the last 29 games with runners on.  

He's been on base 61 times and scored 13 times when not driving in himself.  

There is no one else in this lineup who is going to beat you.  Especially if you get past Upton and Ohtani isn't playing.  

And I think we've all seen the approach teams are taking with Mike.  Up and in or Low and away.  Trying to burn the corner.  Don't miss in the strike zone.   If you walk him, so what.  

So here's the problem I have with dropping him to 3rd by trying to get more people on in front of him.  They're still going to walk him.  The only way they might start doing so a little less is if someone behind him actually makes the other team pay for putting him on.

Especially Upton; it may be a tough stat to gauge, but anyway it's sliced, his RISP hitting so far has hurt the team.   He has to continue to improve at it, as he has the past week or so.   Then with he AND Pujols doing so, maybe THEN Trout finally sees better pitches to hit.

Blaming other players for his slump is weak at best. When Trout was going on a terror those same players where in the lineup.

He’s always going to be pitched around no matter who’s batting after him. He’s getting the Bonds treatment.

I wouldnt even pretend to throw him a strike.

There's the base.  Take it.

Exactly.  It isn't as if Albert Pujols or Justin Upton will beat you.  And if Ohtani's batting behind them, then fine, walk him too.  Still doesn't result in any runs. 

The Angels are another two GOOD hitters away from having an offense that is even functional.
