TROUT NURSES GROIN.........OTHERWISE, FLYING!
Mike Trout will miss his second straight game Friday as he nurses a groin injury.
The Angels superstar is not in the lineup for their matchup against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, with veteran Peter Bourjos
replacing him in center field. Trout first tweaked his groin while
running the bases in Tuesday’s 11-8 win over the Brewers and exited that
game in the fourth inning, though Los Angeles is hopeful he will return
to action soon. The weather in Chicago might also be a factor, with the
temperature expected to feel like the low 40s around first pitch. The
Angels are understandably being cautious with their cornerstone player.
“It's just day to day,” Trout said Wednesday. “There's no sense in going out there and trying to push it.”
Trout received the American League Player of the Week Award on Monday
-- his first time earning the honor since 2015 -- after one of his best
weeks as a Major Leaguer. He reached base in 13 of his 18 plate
appearances against Texas and finished the Angels’ four-game series with
a .545/.722/1.909 slash line -- giving him an eye-popping 2.631 OPS
that ranks as the third best for any player in a four-game series behind
Babe Ruth (3.111 vs. Detroit on June 11-14, 1921) and Mickey Mantle
(2.850 vs. Kansas City on July 2-4 in 1962), according to the Elias
Sports Bureau. Trout is currently slashing .406/.592/.938 with five home
runs on the season.

Trout slams his way to a career-high 7 RBIs
However, Trout continues to cement his status as the best player of his generation. Since the beginning of the 2012 season, his 68.8 fWAR leads every other Major Leaguer by a wide margin (Buster Posey is next at 46.6).

his third AL MVP Award. He is hitting .298/.445/.666 with 80 RBIs, 78
runs scored, 80 walks and eight stolen bases in 95 games.In addition to the 33 homers, Trout leads the AL in extra-base hits, walks, RBIs,
on-base percentage, and slugging percentage.

Today, Mike Trout turned 28 years old. Yes, the ball is juiced this year, but he still leads the AL, and is near the lead in HRs in MLB.
We're watching one of the very best ever.....things I missed when I was a kid idolizing Mickey Mantle.
I just hope he can stay healthy.
Pay attention to the ZONE CHARTS here. I recall when he first came up to the majors, he had two weaknesses: high, inside pitches (he's a low-ball hitter), and a relatively weak throwing arm from center field. After his first season, he worked on both of those "weaknesses". Believe me, his opponents don't consider those issues to be weaknesses any more.

Glad to see it. I think it can be tougher for him to win such an award, at times, because his seasons are always so good some voters would rather give their votes to other players who are having a career year and might not ever be in such a position again.

Trout wows at Topgolf
Three-time AL MVP Mike Trout showed that his power translates to his golf swing
based on a video that the Angels tweeted out Sunday night that went
viral. Maddon confirmed that Trout’s drive cleared the nets that are 220
yards away and 150 feet high.
