We are now a little over a week into the Angels Spring Training games and so far the most exciting development has been the power of Mark Trumbo. After tying for the minor league lead in home runs last year Trumbo has continued hitting bombs so far this spring. In the Halos 8-2 loss to the Royals yesterday Trumbo connected for his 2nd home run of the spring, a GOLIATH blast to left. With each home run Trumbo hits his chances to make the big league club continue to rise.
It will be interesting to see how Trumbo progresses this spring and eventually what type of role he can carve out for himself with the big league club in 2011. With the way Trumbo’ s spring has gone so far, Mark is making my prediction from October look straight up prophetic.
