Week Three: Halo of the Week

Updated: April 24, 2017

Another week has come and gone for the Angels and honestly, I think most of us are glad that it’s gone. After going 2-5 for the week, the Angels find themselves in fourth place in the American League West. Two weeks ago the Angles were sitting on top of the division with a 6-2 record, looking as if their pitching and hitting were finally starting to gel. But then the Angels lost nine out of their next ten games, put a few more pitchers on the disabled list, and this is where they now find themselves: 8-12 with pitchers and hitters that can’t seem to get on the same page for an entire game.

So after watching the games and reviewing the numbers from the past week, a familiar name kept coming up for the Halo of the Week and it’s scary to think where the Angles would be without him.

Week Three Halo of the Week

Mike Trout

.375           2 HR           4 RBI           2 Doubles           1 Outfield Assist

 

Trout again is leading the group of Angels’ hitters in a week where they were shut out twice and only managed to score a single run in two other games. In seven games this week, Trout belted out 12 hits to raise his season average to .351 and his OPS to 1.100. Trout also recorded his first outfield assist of the year Monday night when he threw out Jose Altuve at third base.

I don’t know if Trout is getting frustrated with how the team is performing but if the Angels continue to underachieve, the “trade Mike Trout” voices will start getting louder and could become a serious topic fro discussion.

 

Honorable Mention:

Martin Maldonado

13 AB            .462 batting average
