Mike Trout is a lock every year.

It’s been said that there is nothing guaranteed but death and taxes. Well I will add one more item to the list that at least for now reigns true Michael Nelson Trout will be an AL All-Star every year for the foreseeable future.

More from Halo Hangout

Although Trout is having a sub-par year stats wise for him, it is still all-star caliber and then some. Just compared to what he has done in the past the numbers don’t quite measure up.

Trout so far is hitting .286 with 18 homers and has driven in 44 runs with seven stolen bases.

If you look deeper he also has an OBP of .457 and an OPS of 1.070, both of which are just a tad below his career best in each category for Trout.  Trout’s 61 walks is on pace for a career-high in this category and his 51 strikeouts is on pace to be a career-low for Trout other than in 2017 when he was injured and missed 40 games of the season.

Anyway you look at it Mike Trout will be an All-Star in 2019, end of story.
