Trout went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Athletics. Trout got the scoring started with a solo shot in the fourth inning -- his 35th long ball of the season. The two-time AL MVP is now 24-for-26 in stolen-base attempts this season and is slashing an absurd .404/.533/.723 since the start of September heading into the final stretch of another terrific campaign.
Trout is not in the lineup Sunday against Seattle, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Trout gets his second day off in the month of September. He's hit .369/.506/.631 in 20 games since returning from a wrist injury, though that barely counts as a hot streak in a season in which he's hit .318/.466/.625 overall. Michael Hermosillo will get the start in center field.
Trout went 2-for-4 with a walk, double and two-run homer against the Mariners on Saturday. Trout took Erasmo Ramirez deep in the first inning to record his 34th home run of the season. It was his first home run in a week, though he still ranks seventh in the American League in long balls, despite missing the majority of August. Now hitting .318/.466/.625 across 437 at-bats, Trout has locked in another season of stellar production.
Trout went 5-for-5 with two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI in Saturday's 12-3 rout of the White Sox. He singlehandedly gave Matt Shoemaker all the offense the right-hander would need on the night, hitting his first homers in September to give him 33 on the year. Trout's .314/.465/.623 slash line has him on pace for a career high in OBP, and he's just two extra-base hits shy of his seventh straight season with at least 60.
Trout (calf) will start in center field and bat third against the White Sox on Friday. Trout will return to action after missing Wednesday's game due to a right calf injury he sustained during Tuesday's contest. Since coming off the DL due to a wrist issue Aug. 24, he's gone 9-for-35 (.257 average) with two extra-base hits and three RBI.
