The Angels have called up 20-year old righty swinging outfielder Mike Trout. He is likely going to be the starting CF for the Angels. Trout played in 20 games in AAA-ball this year and he was 31 of 77 (.403 avg, 1.091 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 1 homer, 13 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Trout struggled last season in his first shot at the show, when he played in 40 games for the Angels in which he was 27 of 123 (.220 avg, .672 OPS) with 20 runs scored, 5 homers, 16 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. His P.T. was sporadic last year, but the Angels are planning on playing him every day this time around to see if he can give the offense a boost. 25-year old righty swinging Peter Bourjos will likely be the #4 outfielder now that he won’t be starting in CF. He has played in 16 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 8 for 45 (.178 avg, .512 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer, 7 RBIs and 1 stolen base. I think Bourjos will do a good job in his new role.
