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.
 
Cold8/16/2014 12:23:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has gone 4-for-32 (.125) with 11 Ks the past three games.
Insight: Two of the hits were home runs and he drove in five runs during that stretch, but daily league players should consider other options Saturday. Trout is always one of the most expensive players and you can't afford to eat up a significant portion of your salary with a player who is on a bad run.
 
Hot8/10/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has homered in back-to-back games.
Insight: Trout's average is down to .299 from .323 last season, but he's on pace for a career high in doubles, homers and RBI. Plus, he's scored 81 runs and swiped 12 bags without being caught.
 
Hot8/1/2014 10:51:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and two RBI Friday against the Rays.
Insight: Trout struggled a bit near the end of July, but his slumps never last long. He's hitting .302 with 25 home runs, 78 RBI, 75 runs, 10 steals and a .978 OPS on the year.
 
Hot7/20/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: Since he started off May 10-for-62 (.161) with 22 Ks, Angels outfielder Mike Trout has batted .358 with 19 doubles, one triple, 15 home runs, 46 RBI, 39 runs and five steals in his last 49 games.
Insight: Trout went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and three runs Sunday against the Mariners. He's hitting .313 with 23 home runs, 74 RBI and an AL-leading 1.012 OPS.
 
7/19/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout is a career .386 hitter with a 1.067 OPS against Felix Hernandez.
Insight: King Felix may be the best pitcher in baseball, certainly in the top-five, but Trout doesn't seem to have a problem with him. Trout leads the league in OPS (1.008) and total bases (214) to go along with his .313 batting average, 22 HR and 73 RBI.
 
7/18/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout is 3-for-16 (all singles) against Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma.
Insight: Trout leads the league in OPS (1.005) and total bases (209) to go along with his .310 batting average, 22 HR and 73 RBI, but don't expect much tonight.
 
Hot7/13/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout had two doubles and four RBI Sunday at Texas.
Insight: Trout had 29 doubles, 15 homers and 59 RBI at the All-Star break last year, but somehow he's managed to improve again. He's hit .310 with 22 home runs, 73 RBI and a 1.005 OPS this season.
 
Hot7/11/2014 10:49:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a homer Friday at Texas.
Insight: Trout (.310) already has 22 home runs and 69 RBI, up from 15 and 59 at last year's All-Star break.
 
Hot7/1/2014 9:48:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout is 4-for-8 (.444) with a 1.250 OPS versus White Sox starter Hector Noesi.
Insight: Trout (.307, 17 HR, 56 RBI) is hitting with more power this season. Add in a wind blowing out to left at 15 mph and you have a must-start candidate.
 
Hot6/25/2014 10:26:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with a homer, two RBI, two walks, two runs and a steal Tuesday against the Twins.
Insight: Trout (.307, 17 HR, 56 RBI) has the reputation of being an all-around excellent player rather than a power hitter, but his .604 slugging percentage is third in baseball. He has stolen five bases this month after stealing that many in the first two months combined.
 
Hot6/17/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout slugged two homers in Tuesday night's win over Cleveland.
Insight: He's hitting .380 this month with five homers and 16 RBI. Trout (.311, 16 HR, 54 RBI) is the best outfielder in baseball right now and it's not close.
 
Hot6/15/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout has hit safely in each of his last 20 starts. He went 3-for-6 with a double, a homer and four RBI Saturday night.
Insight: Trout didn't have a hit in a pinch-hitting appearance on June 3 so his hitting streak currently stands at nine, but he's provided fantasy owners with a .372 average, five homers, 21 RBI, 17 runs, two steals and a 1.116 OPS over his last 21 games.
 
6/8/2014 9:24:00 AM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout hit a game-tying grand slam off White Sox ace Chris Sale in the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday night.
Insight: Sale took a 5-0 lead into the eighth but didn't get an out while allowing five runs to score. Trout has his average up to .295 and he has hit 12 homers with 43 RBI. His appears to be over the back injury that forced him to miss a few games this past week.
 
6/5/2014 10:51:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout (back) had a double and a triple in his return to the lineup Thursday.
Insight: Trout was only able to play one and a half innings in the past four games due to back discomfort, but his MRI revealed only inflammation.
 
6/5/2014 5:10:00 PM
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout (back) is in the lineup Thursday.
Insight: Trout missed two games over the weekend and only lasted an inning and a half Tuesday after getting treatment on his back Monday, but his MRI revealed only inflammation. He's serving as the DH Thursday.
