      Angels' Mike Trout: Working out at Little League field

      Mike Trout has been staying in shape during the MLB hiatus in part by getting work in at a Little League field near his home in New Jersey, Mike Oz of Yahoo Sports reports.Trout indicated that he has been working out every day, though he hasn't done much hitting. He also explained that he spent about a month "working hard like the offseason" and is now "transitioning into getting ready for the season." If a 2020 campaign takes place, expect Trout to once again put up MVP-caliber numbers while hitting in the heart of an improved Los Angeles Angels offense.

      Angels' Mike Trout: Takes two HBPs Wednesday

      Mike Trout was hit by a pitch twice in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Mariners.Given Trout's status as arguably the best player in the game, taking two pitches to the body -- including one to the knee -- is understandably cause for concern. However, per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, Trout insisted after the game that he is "fine." The superstar flied out in his other plate appearance and is hitting .333 this spring.

      Angels' Mike Trout: Starting Tuesday as planned

      Mike Trout (foot) will bat second and play center field Tuesday against the Reds.Trout underwent foot surgery in mid-September and didn't play in the Los Angeles Angels' first two spring games. He should still have plenty of time to get ready for the start of the regular season with Opening Day just over a month away. The three-time MVP's health is pretty much the only question surrounding him heading into the season, as he hasn't played more than 140 games in a season since 2016.

      Angels' Mike Trout: Making spring debut Tuesday

      Mike Trout (foot) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.The three-time and reigning American League MVP underwent surgery on his right foot in September, but it won't impact his preparation in Arizona, as expected. Trout finished 2019 with a 1.083 OPS, 45 home runs, 104 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 134 games. New manager Joe Maddon said last week it's possible he utilizes his center fielder out of the leadoff spot, though the skipper hasn't made any lineup decisions at this point.

      Angels' Mike Trout: Potential leadoff candidate

      Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that he hasn't ruled out deploying Mike Trout (foot) as the club's leadoff hitter this season, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. "It's in the playbook," Maddon said, though he noted that he yet to decide on lineup spots for any of his hitters at this point.Trout hasn't been a fixture in the leadoff spot since his rookie season in 2012, with former skippers Mike Scioscia and Brad Ausmus using the outfielder almost exclusively out of the Nos. 2 and 3 spots over the past seven years. The safe money is on that pattern holding once Opening Day arrives, though it's worth noting that during his tenure with the Cubs, Maddon frequently used one of his top power hitters in Anthony Rizzo atop the order. Trout's superior speed and on-base skills would seemingly make him an even more natural fit than Rizzo as a leadoff man, so it wouldn't be surprising if Maddon at least experiments with the 28-year-old in a table-setting role during Cactus League action. No matter where he slots in the batting order come the start of the season, Trout looks like he'll be a consensus top-three selection in fantasy drafts, provided he's fully healthy after undergoing surgery on his right foot last September.
