Trout has been struggling recently, batting just .212 (7 for 33) over his last 10 games. He does have two home runs and five RBI over that span, however. Manager Mike Scioscia isn't too concerned about the reigning AL MVP.

"Mike makes adjustments from one at-bat to the other," Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "He'll have a rough at-bat, where a guy makes some pitches, and he'll come back and have a great at-bat later in the game or whatever it might be. For him to bounce back, that's not surprising. He's just a special player."

Angels OF Mike Trout targeting more stolen bases in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.”
