Analysis: Trout is 1 for 11 with five strikeouts in the series. It's stunning to see baseball's best player humbled but he should be busting out of this slide soon.

Analysis: The stud is 5 for 9 with two homers in this series and figures to take Miles Mikolas deep on Saturday. Mikolas is awful with a 12.46 ERA and Trout should hit him hard.

Analysis: Trout had an MRI on Wednesday and says it didn't reveal any damage. He was not going to start against the Houston Astros. He has some inflammation in the middle of his back on the left side and hopes to return to the lineup on Thursday.
May 31 5:32 PM PT6:32 PM MT7:32 PM CT8:32 PM ET20:32 ET0:32 GMT8:32 5:32 PM MST7:32 PM EST8:02 PM VEN4:32 UAE (+1)7:32 PM CT-Trout has been scratched from the lineup against the Oakland Athletics for a second straight day because of upper back stiffness.

Analysis: Perhaps this is just what Trout needs to break out of his slump. He's hitting .161 with two homers over his last 15 games.
Apr. 29 8:58 AM PT9:58 AM MT10:58 AM CT11:58 AM ET11:58 ET15:58 GMT23:58 8:58 AM MST10:58 AM EST11:28 AM VEN19:58 UAE10:58 AM CT-Trout was 2 for 4 with his second triple of the season and drove in his 16th run against Cleveland on Monday.

Apr. 27 11:59 AM PT12:59 PM MT1:59 PM CT2:59 PM ET14:59 ET18:59 GMT2:59 11:59 AM MST1:59 PM EST2:29 PM VEN22:59 UAE1:59 PM CT-Trout dominated the baseball diamond yet again Saturday and showcased why he is a five-tool superstar with a homer, single, two walks and a steal.

He's a .373 hitter against the Yanks entering Sunday night's spotlight game against Masahiro Tanaka. You should be glued to your TV for that one, whether you own Trout or not.
Apr. 20 11:07 AM PT12:07 PM MT1:07 PM CT2:07 PM ET14:07 ET18:07 GMT2:07 11:07 AM MST1:07 PM EST1:37 PM VEN22:07 UAE1:07 PM CT-Trout went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts Saturday for the Halos.
Analysis: It was Trout's first career four-strikeout game and no doubt came as a shock to fantasy owners. It will be interesting to see how he responds to this seismic development, and the best guess is that Trout will take it out on the rest of the AL in short order.
Apr. 19 10:03 AM PT11:03 AM MT12:03 PM CT1:03 PM ET13:03 ET17:03 GMT1:03 10:03 AM MST12:03 PM EST12:33 PM VEN21:03 UAE12:03 PM CT-Trout once more rocked the fantasy world Friday night for the Halos.

Analysis: Trout will face the Tigers this weekend. Maybe he can try to steal more since he has only done so once this season and with his speed, it's hard to understand why he isn't more daring.

Analysis: Trout's numbers will be fine, but owners can only imagine the possibilities if he receives better protection in the lineup. Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and David Freese were a combined 2 for 11 behind him with four strikeouts Monday.
Mar. 28 8:30 PM PT9:30 PM MT10:30 PM CT11:30 PM ET23:30 ET3:30 GMT11:30 8:30 PM MST10:30 PM EST11:00 PM VEN7:30 UAE (+1)9:30 PM CT-Trout and the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a $144.5 million, six-year contract that runs through 2020.

Analysis: Baseball's brightest young star, the 22-year-old Trout was a unanimous choice for AL Rookie of the Year in 2012. He finished second in AL MVP voting to Miguel Cabrera the past two years.

The outfielder would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time after this season, and for free agency following the 2017 World Series. Now, he won't be eligible for free agency until at least age 29.
Mar. 15 8:44 PM PT9:44 PM MT10:44 PM CT11:44 PM ET23:44 ET3:44 GMT11:44 8:44 PM MST10:44 PM EST11:14 PM VEN7:44 UAE (+1)9:44 PM CT-Trout hit a two-run homer as the Los Angeles Angels tied the Colorado Rockies 4-4 in 10 innings Saturday.

The young star hit a grand slam onto the berm by the left-field foul pole and drove in five runs Friday in the Los Angeles Angels' 15-3 win over the Chicago Cubs.
Analysis: Trout struck out in the first and hit an RBI single that capped a four-run second against Cubs starter Chris Rusin. He hit the grand slam against James McDonald in a nine-run fourth. "I think it was out before he got out of the batter's box," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Trout agreed Wednesday to a $1 million deal, a record for a one-year major league contract for a player not yet eligible for arbitration who wasn't coming to the big leagues from Japan or Cuba or wasn't required to have a larger amount because of the maximum-cut rule.

The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent.
