One of the many things Mike Trout does well is play defense

Centerfield – This another position where not much thought has to be put in when manager Brad Ausmus fills out the line-up card.  The Angels are blessed to have not only the best center fielder in baseball, but the best player in baseball in Mike Trout.  Trout is working on winning his third MVP of his career and should so especially if he hits 50 homer and drives in 120 runs along with leading the league in walks, OBP, and WAR.

The only question is where in the line-up is the best spot for Trout and who are you going to surround him with, to hopefully build a championship team in Anaheim.  As of today Trout is hitting .293 with 45 homers and 104 RBIs and an OPS of 1.086.  Trout also has 109 walks which is approaching a career-high for Trout as well as his homers (set a career-high) and he only needs eight RBIs to set a career-high.

Yes, MIke Trout is still the one and is the best player in Angels history.

Grade – A
