Mike Trout continues to amaze and shock

We’ll finish things off with something that shouldn’t surprise anyone: Mike Trout should continue to keep putting up great numbers as he gets into his groove in spring. With a new found protection in the case of Anthony Rendon, expect him to see more pitches to hit which already wasn’t a problem to begin with considering the numbers he was able to put up in seasons past.

There shouldn’t be anything that Trout needs to improve either at the plate or in the field, but stealing more bases couldn’t hurt could it? He had only 11 stolen bases last season, which he could certainly work on that during spring training. Other than that, when Trout enters each time at spring training, expect nothing but the best working hard to improve his game, which may seem impossible at this point.

But if he hasn’t changed his personality from the past, look for him to try and improve in an area he feels he is lacking in.
