Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has a plan to cut down his league-leading 184 strikeouts from last season.
Insight: Trout told the Los Angeles Times that he plans to be more aggressive early in counts this spring. He said he believes swinging at more first pitches will lead to fewer punchouts. Regardless, there is hardly an argument that Trout shouldn't go No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts this season.

Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout told the Los Angeles Times that he wants to increase his stolen bases and cut down on his strikeouts in 2015.
Insight: This is music to fantasy owners' ears. Trout stole just 16 stolen bases last season after swiping 33 in 2013 and 49 in 2012. He also led the AL with 184 strikeouts last season. Fantasy owners would love to see another 30-steal season, but regardless, it's hard to argue Trout isn't the first overall pick off draft boards this spring.

Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout won the 2014 American League MVP award.
Insight: He won it unanimously after finishing second to Miguel Cabrera the past two seasons. Trout slashed .287/.377/.561 with 36 homers and 111 RBI. Congrats to the Angels' star outfielder.
 
10/2/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is a lifetime .400 hitter (6-for-15) against Royals starter Jason Vargas.
Insight: Trout led the league in RBI with 111, runs (.115), total bases (338), but also strikeouts (184). This will be his first major league postseason action.
 
9/28/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is hitting .383 (18-for-47) with seven extra-base hits and 11 RBI against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Trout's OPS against Hernandez is 1.063, so we wouldn't be afraid to plug Trout into the fantasy lineup even with King Felix on the mound.
 
9/26/2014 11:33:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is just a .174 hitter (4-for-23) against Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma.
Insight: He was 1-for-2 with a stolen base and run scored, before leaving Wednesday's game in the fifth inning due to a stomach illness, but should be fine. This isn't a favorable matchup although Iwakuma has been pitching poorly of late.
 
9/24/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout departs Wednesday's game with stomach illness.
Insight: He was 1-for-2 with a stolen base and run scored, before leaving the game in the fifth inning. Trout will just need a day or two to shake off the illness.
 
9/24/2014 11:50:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is just 1-for-9 with four strikeouts versus Oakland left-hander Jon Lester.
Insight: The AL MVP favorite is hitting .289 with 113 runs, 35 HR, 110 RBI and 15 steals, but has an unfavorable matchup Wednesday.
 
9/23/2014 1:45:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is a career .364 hitter (4-for-11) with a pair of homers against Oakland starter Sonny Gray.
Insight: The AL MVP favorite is hitting .291 with 113 runs, 35 HR, 110 RBI and 15 steals, though I will admit I liked him more when he was a 30-30 guy and struck out less. Start him Tuesday.
 
9/21/2014 9:05:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout continued his pursuit for his first MVP Award.
Insight: He clubbed his 35th homer of the season, while knocking in his 108th and 109th runs of the year. The AL MVP favorite is slashing .290/.379/.568 with 112 runs and 14 stolen bases. Oh, and he's only 23-years-old.
 
9/18/2014 3:23:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has had tremendous success against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Trout is 18-for-47 with three doubles, two triples, two home runs and 11 RBI against King Felix. That produces an incredible .383/.404/.660 batting line. The AL MVP favorite is hitting .289 with 34 home runs and 107 RBI this year.
 
9/15/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is just a .182 hitter against Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma.
Insight: Trout is still the man, and you aren't going to take him out of your lineup, just don't set your expectations too high for Monday. The center fielder leads the American league with 107 runs and 107 RBI while batting .290. He is fourth in home runs (34) and third with a .945 OPS.
 
9/14/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with two solo home runs and an intentional walk on Saturday as the Angels beat the Astros, 5-2.
Insight: The home runs are his 33rd and 34th of the season. Trout's other hit was a double, his 39th of the year. The center fielder leads the American league with 107 runs and 107 RBI while batting .290. He is third in home runs and third with a .946 OPS.
 
9/7/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a double, home run, two RBI, and three runs as the Angels defeated the Twins, 14-4.
Insight: Trout hit a two-run homer in the third inning, his 32nd of the season. That's a career high, as are his 102 RBI. He is hitting .285/.370/.552 with 97 runs scored as well.
 
8/31/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against the A's on Sunday.
Insight: Trout has his average back to .290 and the home run Sunday gives him 31 on the season, a new career high. His 97 RBI also ties a career high. Trout's .934 OPS is third highest in the American League.
 
8/29/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: In a matchup of All-Stars, Oakland left-hander Jon Lester has gotten the best of Angels center fielder Mike Trout.
Insight: Trout is 0-for-6 with three strikeouts in their matchups. Trout is just starting to break out of a slump, going 6-for-12 over the past three games. Hopefully, Lester won't slow the progress, but Trout isn't a great option Friday.
 
8/27/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has gone 7-for-19 with a pair of home runs in his last five games.
Insight: Trout has hit .242 with 51 Ks in 153 at-bats since the All-Star break, but he's showing signs of coming out of the slump and could have a big September.
 
Cold8/23/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday at Oakland.
Insight: Trout has hit just .235 with six homers, 17 RBI, 20 runs, 45 Ks and a .753 OPS in 136 at-bats since the All-Star break, but we can't see the superstar struggling for much longer.
 
Cold8/21/2014 4:09:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has batted just .174 (8-for-46) over the past two weeks (11 games).
Insight: Fantasy owners are probably getting a little frustrated, but looking at the big picture shows he's still a fantasy stud. He's batting .288 with 27 HR, 89 RBI, 84 runs scored, 12 SB and a .930 OPS. Still, for fantasy owners it's what have you done for me lately?
 
8/20/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout is 6-for-13 with two homers against Boston starter Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Trout has gone 4-for-11 with a double, a triple and two RBI over his last three games after running into a 4-for-37 (.108) slump prior to that. His strikeout rate is up from 19 percent last year to 24.8 percent this season which has contributed to his average dropping from .323 to .291. However, he's put up a much higher extra-base hit rate (12.2 percent in 2014, 10.5 percent in 2013) and is going to drive in more runs than he did in each of his first two seasons. He's a strong choice Wednesday against Buchholz.
