Imagine if the Angels did not draft Mike Trout? Gladly, the Angels were not one of the 24 teams who passed up on the now current All-Star, MVP and much more. In his 6 seasons with the Angels thus far, Trout batting stats goes as follows.
.304 BA, 152 HR, 121 SB all in 6 seasons.
Pretty dang incredible. Out of the 24 teams who drafted before the selection of Mike Trout, only 4 of those teams would go on and see their draft pick selection become an All-Star. Those players are, Stephen Strasburg, Aaron Crow, A. J. Pollock and Shelby Miller.
At the age of 24, Trout became the 8th player in history to record 150+ Homers, and 150+ SB’s. This historical fact he just reached as of June 9th 2016.
Without Mike Trout, The Angels would not even be a baseball team…
