Despite only batting .275, Trout has batted in 22 runs and is coming out of the slump he was in at the start of the season. In his last five games, he has hit two home runs, batted .304, and has knocked in eight runs. Trout is also one of the game’s best outfielders. The LA Angels are continuing to struggle to win games, but, with Trout playing better, we should see some more games going in the Angel’s favor.
