Player Outlook
Another year, another season marred by injury for the three-time American League MVP. Mike Trout managed to stay healthy for most of the first half before he suffered a fractured wrist in early July, and he'd appear in just one contest the rest of the way. He ended up playing in only 82 games, while his .263/.367/.490 slash line is the worst of his career in all three categories since his debut campaign in 2011. The 32-year-old still hit 18 homers and walked at a 12.7 percent clip, but his strikeout rate remained high at 28.7 percent. Trout also continued to square up the ball consistently with a 16.0 percent barrel rate and 51.5 percent hard-hit rate, both of which would rank near the top of the league among qualified hitters. Trout has played in more than 85 percent of the Angels' games just twice over the past seven seasons, with one of those instances being the shortened 2020 campaign. The durability concerns aren't going anywhere with Trout on the wrong side of 30, but he'll still be a clear difference maker for fantasy managers in 2024 if he's able to play even 120 games, which seems close to the best-case scenario given he hasn't reached that mark since 2019.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Homers as leadoff man

    Trout went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Orioles. Trout was placed atop the batting order for the first time since the 2020 campaign and wasted no time making an impact, taking Grayson Rodriguez deep to center for his first leadoff home run since 2012. Trout now has nine home runs through the team's first 24 games, which is his most since he had 10 in 2020. He's now also tied with Marcell Ozuna atop the home run leaderboard. Trout is slashing .237/.324/.581 with 12 RBI, 15 runs, five steals and a 11:23 BB:K in 105 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Batting leadoff

    Trout is the leadoff hitter Tuesday versus the Orioles. Trout is at the top of the lineup for the first time since Aug. 25, 2020. He has been struggling over the last seven games, slashing just .111/.250/.222. In Monday night's loss to Baltimore, Trout struck out looking for the final out with the bases loaded in a two-run game. Placing the perennial All-Star at the top of the lineup may be a way to regain a spark.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Swats go-ahead home run

    Trout went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run during Monday's 7-3 win over the Rays. Trout got the Angels on the board with a two-run homer in the eighth as part of a five-run inning, giving the Halos the lead and eventual victory.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Three days, three homers

    Trout went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Rays. For a third consecutive day, Trout tallied a long ball, this time tagging Aaron Civale for a two-run shot. In just 11 appearances, Trout is one-third of the way to matching his home run total from 2023 that he achieved in 82 games played. He's tied with Tyler O'Neill for the most home runs in baseball with six and ranks second in slugging percentage (.780).

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Blasts another homer

    Trout went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a triple, two total runs and two total RBI in a 7-1 win against the Rays on Monday. Trout helped the Angels get off to a fast start, driving in a run with with a triple in the first frame and coming home to score on a Taylor Ward single two pitches later. Trout added to Rays starter Zach Eflin's rough outing with a 423-foot solo blast to center in the third inning. The long ball was the fifth of the season for Trout, tying him for first in the league in that category. He's added six RBI, seven runs, two stolen bases and a .297/..381/.757 slash line to help lead the Angels to a 6-4 record.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Steals base, goes deep

    Trout went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to Boston. He was also hit by a pitch. The game was already out of reach when Trout finally put the Angels on the board with his eighth-inning shot. He swiped his second bag of the year earlier in the game, and the solo homer was his fourth of the season. Trout's now slashing .250/.351/.625 with four RBI and a 4:8 BB:K through 37 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Swipes bag in win

    Trout went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Miami. There was a time when a stolen base by Trout would be run-of-the-mill, but his theft Tuesday qualifies as intriguing news given that the slugger hasn't swiped more than two bags in a season since 2019. The star outfielder has gotten off to a fine start to the campaign in the power department with three homers through five games, and despite being plagued by injuries in recent years, there's little doubt that he still has the potential to be among the top home-run hitters in the sport. It would be a big bonus for Trout's fantasy managers, though, if he could get back to being a double-digit base-stealer, so it bears paying attention to see if his steal Monday was a sign that he'll be running more this year or if it turns out to be a rare occurrence in 2024.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Drills two homers

    Trout went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs and a walk in Monday's win over Miami. Trout knocked his first homer in the fourth inning followed by a massive 473-foot shot in the sixth. The star outfielder had gone 1-for-7 with four punchouts over his previous two games but is now already up to three long balls on the year. Trout's hoping to diminish the injury concerns this season and he continues to prove his dominance when healthy.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Pops first homer

    Trout went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Orioles. Trout hit third in the Angels' Opening Day lineup and wasted no time making his mark on the game by taking Corbin Burnes deep in his first at-bat. He was ultimately pulled from the game early with the Angels down big, but there is no injury issue. Trout has failed to reach 500 plate appearances in each of the last three full seasons, but he should remain an elite producer so long as he can stay on the field.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Struggling to get going in spring

    Trout is batting .208 with a home run, five RBI and a 1:11 BB:K through 24 Cactus League at-bats. Trout is tied for the second on the team in RBI this spring, through four of his five runs batted in came on a single swing when he belted a grand slam against Oakland on Wednesday. Spring training stats should typically be taken with a grain of salt, but it is a bit concerning that the star outfielder has struck out in nearly half of his at-bats thus far after posting a career-worst 28.7 strikeout rate last season. Trout did say at the end of the week that he is starting to see pitches better, per Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, and he has plenty of time to shake off any lingering rust before Opening Day.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: In line to bat third

    Angels manager Ron Washington said Thursday that Trout will bat third this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Trout has traditionally hit either second or third and spent most of his time in the two-hole last season. However, that spot will be occupied by Nolan Schanuel to open 2024, with Trout providing protection. Anthony Rendon is expected to follow Trout in the cleanup spot.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Doesn't want to be traded

    Trout said Monday that he doesn't want to be traded and has been pushing Angels owner Arte Moreno and general manager Perry Minasian to sign one of the remaining marquee free agents, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Many speculated heading into the winter that Trout might put in a request for a trade while the Angels don't profile as contenders heading into 2024, but Minasian said back in December that Trout wouldn't be dealt this offseason. While Trout wouldn't rule out asking for a trade sometime in the future, for now he remains committed to winning in Anaheim. The Angels have been somewhat loosely connected to Cody Bellinger, Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery, and Trout sounds like he'll continue to advocate for a free-agent splurge. Trout didn't make many appearances for the Angels after Aug. 22 of last season due to a hamate fracture in his left wrist, but he enters spring training with no restrictions.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Will not be traded this winter

    Angels general manager Perry Minasian said Tuesday that Trout will not be traded this offseason, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Due to a variety of factors, it had always seemed like a long shot that Trout would be dealt, and now we can put any rumors of it to rest. The 32-year-old battled through another injury-shortened season in 2023, playing just 82 games because of a fractured hamate bone. Trout has nearly $250 million remaining on a contract that runs through 2030.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Shut down for season

    The Angels transferred Trout (wrist) to the 60-day injured list Sunday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. A hamate fracture in Trout's left wrist has kept him on the IL since late August, and manager Tyler Nevin confirmed Sunday that Trout will not play again in 2023. Trout will finish with a .263/.367/.490 slash line with 18 homers and 44 RBI over 362 plate appearances, and he will now focus on getting ready for the start of next season. Michael Fulmer was selected from Triple-A Salt Lake to fill Trout's spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Hits off tee

    Trout (wrist) hit off a tee Friday, per MLB.com. Trout is accompanying the Angels on their current road trip and had been taking dry swings for about two weeks before progressing to hitting off a tee Friday. Neither Trout nor the team has closed the door on him returning to game action before the end of the campaign, though he's played in only one game since July 3 and wouldn't have time for a rehab assignment. Trout's return could provide the Angels with an end-of-season morale boost, but it wouldn't serve much of a purpose in the standings since the team has already been eliminated from postseason contention.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Joining team for road trip

    Trout (wrist) will join the Angels' for their six-game road trip this week and will start swinging the bat soon, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Angels manager Phil Nevin said earlier this month that Trout had resumed holding the bat and taking dry swings, and with the 11-time All-Star apparently having suffered no setbacks while doing so, he's poised to take the next step forward in his rehab by hitting off a tee and eventually taking batting practice. Trout doesn't look like he'll have enough time to head out on a rehab assignment before the minor-league season comes to a close, but he should still have the opportunity to test the health of his fractured left wrist by facing off against a pitching machine or playing in simulated games. Even though the Angels are out of playoff contention, the club is still keeping the door open for Trout to return from the 10-day injured list before the season ends.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Showing improvement

    Trout (wrist) has been holding a bat and taking dry swings without feeling much soreness for about a week, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports. Trout is recovering from a hamate bone fracture in his left wrist that originally landed him on the injured list in early July. His attempt to return Aug. 22 was probably ill-advised, as he ended up going back on the IL with lingering soreness the following day. Trout has indicated that he wants to return to action this season, though the Angels may opt to shut him down at some point given that they've fallen out of postseason contention.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Intends to play again this season

    Trout had additional tests on his injured left wrist Sunday that revealed no structural damage, and he indicated that he still plans to return this season, MLB.com reports. Trout missed 38 games due to a fractured left hamate bone before he was activated from the injured list Aug. 22. He was able to play in only one contest before going back on the IL, and he's since acknowledged that he returned too soon, as pain was still affecting his swing. Despite the fact that the Angels have fallen out of playoff contention, Trout indicated that he expects to return before the end of the campaign, though the organization will also have a say in that matter. Since testing Sunday revealed no structural damage, pain tolerance will be the main factor determining when Trout can start swinging a bat again.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Officially back on IL

    Trout (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left hamate fracture. Trout lasted just one game on the Angels' active roster before returning to the IL due to continued soreness in his surgically repaired left wrist. He will be shut down for 10 days and the hope is that he can make it back at some point before the end of the season. That's no guarantee, though, especially with the Angels all but out of the playoff picture at this point. Mickey Moniak will be the club's primary center fielder while Trout is out.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Headed back to IL

    The Angels intend to place Trout (wrist) back on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Greg Beacham of The Associated Press reports. Trout initially landed on the IL in early July due to a hamate bone fracture in his left wrist and was activated Tuesday. The 32-year-old outfielder then sat out both games of Wednesday's doubleheader due to lingering soreness in his wrist and will now find himself back on the IL. General manager Perry Minasian said Trout will be completely shut down for the next 10 days, but Minasian is hopeful that Trout will be able to return before the end of the season. However, the Angels may not be in a rush to bring him back if they are eliminated from playoff contention while Trout is out.
