dominated the Yankees in their own ballpark again, helping the light-hitting,
last-place Mariners look like world beaters by pitching a two-hitter for his
third shutout of the season in a 1-0 win over New York 1-0 on a sticky, sunny
Saturday. ANAHEIM, Calif. —The first time Mike Trout played against his idol,
he was a raw 19-year-old just a few weeks removed from his Los Angeles Angels
debut. He couldnt quite believe he was standing on a major league field talking
to Derek Jeter. “Its crazy, surreal,” Trout recalled. “Almost like, is this
really happening?” A year later, at the ripe old age of 20, Trout was more
prepared, more confident, and even more determined to show both the Angels and
Jeters Yankees why hes already ready for the big leagues. Trout has been on a
tear since Los Angeles promoted him again five weeks ago, batting .303 with five
homers, 16 RBIs, 21 runs and eight stolen bases in just 30 games. He has
established himself as a speedy leadoff hitter and a phenomenal outfielder who
catches just about anything hit his way, producing almost nightly highlights
with his bat or glove. The Yankees learned all about it when Trout made a series
of stunning catches in left field to go along with three extra-base hits during
the Angels series victory over New York this week. “I definitely feel more
comfortable up here this time,” Trout said. “Its just knowing more about the
pitchers and more about the outfields, how to get to balls out there. Im just
trying to keep it going.” As the son of a former minor leaguer from southern New
Jersey, Trout realized much of the baseball world was watching when the Angels
faced the Yankees. Not only did he seize the stage, but Trout demonstrated why
his latest call-up to the Angels is looking more permanent by the day. Count the
Yankees among those who are impressed. “Hes been a game-changer, offensively,
defensively,” New York manager Joe Girardi said. “The kid has got a lot of
talent, a ton. Usually when you see a guy that fast, you dont anticipate him
hitting the ball that hard. What hes doing at 20, its really pretty amazing. You
think about it, most guys dont hit triples down the left-field line.” Thats
exactly what Trout did Tuesday night, showing off the blazing speed that Angels
manager Mike Scioscia believes is unparalleled in the AL. With fellow speedster
Peter Bourjos patrolling centre field and nine-time Gold Glove winner
Torii Hunter in right, its tough to imagine a better defensive outfield than the
Angels current trio. “The way we look at it is, no balls can drop in the gap,”
Trout said. “Thats a big thing for me and Pete. Were always trying to catch
everything.” This time around, Trout is no longer the youngest player in the
majors after the promotion of Bryce Harper, Washingtons teenage phenom. He held
that distinction last season during two call-ups over nine weeks witth the
Angels, batting . 49ers Super Bowl Black Jerseys. 220 and never
really finding a groove. The Angels never doubted Trouts ability, however. Once
he learned more about the mental approach necessary to maximize those skills, he
has been everything Los Angeles expected. “Im not going to compare him to
Bryce Harper, but I cant imagine anyone being more skilled at that age,” Angels
right-hander Dan Haren said. “He can do it all. Coming up at first, he was a
little bit cocky, a confident kid, but he has really changed for the better. He
handles his business in the clubhouse, off the field. Hes just a great kid. Hes
taking his success in stride. “Hes not walking around acting like a big shot. He
was one of the best prospects in the game, and now hes one of the best
outfielders in the game. Its going to be fun to watch him.” Trouts talent has
been obvious since shortly after the Angels drafted him out of high school late
in the first round in 2009. He has regularly topped lists of baseballs top
prospects, and the Angels looked for a balance between challenging and
overwhelming Trout. “I dont think we would have thought about putting him in the
position last year if we didnt think that his makeup and his confidence would
allow him to go in there and do what he could do,” Scioscia said. “I think hes
used that as a stepping stone to get to where he is this year, and I think
theres no doubt his talent is real, and hes going to have a big impact on our
organization.” Trout didnt make the Angels roster out of spring training this
year, but he hit .403 at Triple-A Salt Lake before the Angels recalled him April
28, releasing veteran Bobby Abreu. Trout played centre field until Vernon Wells
injured his thumb in mid-May, allowing Scioscia to play Trout and Bourjos
together. Trout said having a regular role “is big. You definitely get more
comfortable in the leadoff spot. Ive played my whole life there, in the minors
as well. Just keeps my mind straight. Im not worrying where Im going to be in
the lineup, where Im going to play.” The Angels went on their longest winning
streak in nearly three years after Trout moved over, pulling above .500 Tuesday
for the first time since winning on opening day. Trout gets another big test
this weekend with the two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers in town, but
his teammates think Trout is ready to lead off, yet still willing to learn.
“When youve got room to move like that, that shows you the potential that this
kid has,” Hunter said. “Give him five years from now, (when) hell be 25, still
super young, hell know how to play this game through and through. Hes going to
be awesome.” ’ ’ ’
