1. Beware of the Trout
The Angels everyday lineup is not one that’s expected to drive fear into a lot of pitchers, but one player who might just be the best in baseball at the plate is that of Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
The best player for Los Angeles is 6-for-14 with a home run, double and four RBI, this after he started the season 0-for-6 in the season-opening loss to the A’s.
Last season he hit .306 with 33 homers and 72 runs batted in, with a slugging percentage of .629. He’s one player that all Indians pitchers all have to keep an eye on over the next three days and not allow him to beat them.
