by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/26/2015) Angels slugger Mike Trout connected for his fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot that drew his team even in the seventh inning of what would be an eventual 5-4 loss to the Rangers in extra innings Sunday.

Angels CF Mike Trout connects on 100th-career home run


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) Angels centerfielder Mike Trout connected for his 100th career home run on Friday in Houston, becoming the youngest-ever to reach 100 homers and 100 steals.

Trout reached the century mark in homers at 23 years and 251 days.

The youngest ever to reach 100 was Mel Ott, who did it at 22 years, 132 days old. The youngest to reach 100 as an American League player was Tony Conigliaro (22 years, 197 days old).

Trout added another home run, a three-run shot, in the eighth inning.

The two homers gave Trout his fourth career multihomer game and the first since Sept. 13 against the Astros.

"I'm putting some good swings on that first pitch and being aggressive, and that's what I want to be. We got a great team. It's fun to come to the ballpark every day. We have a lot of people competing for jobs. It's fun to watch."

Angels OF Mike Trout targeting more stolen bases in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Angels outfielder Mike Trout told reporters that he's working on stealing more bases this season, per the Los Angeles Times. On Sunday, Trout backed his words with action, stealing second base and then third in an exhibition game against the White Sox.

"It's nothing we're putting more emphasis on," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Mike's going to steal bases when it's important to us, when he has the opportunity to.

"If pitchers try to shut down Mike, it's an advantage for Albert (Pujols) or whoever is hitting behind Mike," Scioscia said. "And if they're paying more attention to the hitter, there's going to be an opening for Mike. So however it plays out, his speed is a weapon for us, even if it doesn't show up in the pure number of stolen bases."


Angels' Mike Trout to be more aggressive early in count


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Angels outfielder Mike Trout said Thursday that he plans to be more aggressive early in the count this spring, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Gonna be locked and loaded on the first pitch," Trout said.

Trout made contact on the first pitch 24 times last season, hitting six singles and a double and posting a .292/.286/.333 line. He hit .287/.377/.561 in 602 at-bats overall in 2014.


AL MVP Mike Trout wants to steal more bases, cut down on strikeouts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Angels outfielder and reigning AL MVP Mike Trout arrived for spring training Wednesday with two goals on tap for 2015 -- cut down his strikeouts and increase his stolen-base total.

While Trout won the AL MVP in 2014, batting .287 with 36 home runs, 111 RBI and 115 runs, he led the league in strikeouts with 184 and had just 16 stolen bases.

“Plain and simple, I was chasing the high pitch, everybody knows that,” Trout said, per the Los Angeles Times. “There are things you can work on. The majority of time, they’re balls, and I was chasing them.

“I don’t like over-analyzing my swing. I do stuff in the cage and in batting practice that will help me in the game, but I’ll keep my same routine. It’s been working for me. I don’t want to switch anything up. I want to put the ball in play, let my legs get a few more hits and try to get on base more.”

Trout added he plans to talk with manager Mike Scioscia this spring about being more aggressive on the base paths.

“I definitely want to steal more bases,” Trout said. “Want to get to second base as much as I can. I have to take more chances. They were doing a pretty good job of holding me on. The pitchers were really quick to the plate. It’s going to be a challenge, but I’ll do my best.”


Angels' Mike Scioscia leaning toward Mike Trout batting second


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he is considering batting center fielder Mike Trout second in his lineup, according to the Orange County Register.

"Right now there is no doubt, if you look at it, the [two]-spot is where he fits us best," Scioscia said.

Trout was the Angels' top batter in 2014, hitting .287 with 36 home runs. Some managers have been inclined to place their best hitters in the two-hole and Scioscia could be flirting with that trend in this instance.
